I've used the Radio Shack rectangular split ferrite clips on telephone
lines with excellent results. One phone was a freebie from some sales
offer so you know it was not of any real quality. The ferrite cleaned it
perfectly. I have one on the computer modem line just in case. The only
RFI that I've noticed in the computer was through the keyboard. A split
round ferrite on the keyboard line helped but not completely. I then
replaced the keyboard with an IDEAL keyboard for $19 and the RFI
problems were gone.
