So....I read in this morning's local rag that Pullman, Washington, 7 miles
west of here, is part of a pilot program to have 150 of its street lights
replaced with a "new prototype LED" unit, and is one of a few such cities in
Washington state in which this is going to be done.
On the basis of a photo in the local rag, the number 59 is prominently
displayed on the light.
The "local" power company, Avista Corp, is footing much of the bill, $250K,
although the state of Washington is apparently also going to be involved.
Supposedly, these new lights use 45% of the energy of the old sodium-vapor
lamps, last 15 years, or three times as long, and output a whiter, brighter
Might anyone here know whether or not these things have been tested for
RFI output, and what was the result?
Suspicious minds need to know...and pretty soon too...
Perhaps I should have said, "EXTREMELY suspicious minds..." :-(
We, here in Moscow, Idaho, are still fighting the 10 to 20DB over S-9 noise
level I mentioned a few months ago. Not much progress yet.
