CFL = Compact Fluorescent Light

California is thinking of legislating their use:

I love this Q/A from the Westinghouse web site:

Q. When I first used a Compact Fluorescent Lamp, it interfered with my TV. Why 
is that?
A. CFL's may interfere with a variety of devices because they use the same 
wavelengths. If you find that they interfere, move the CFL away, or plug the 
electronic device into another outlet.

I fear this changeover to compact fluorescents is going to happen quickly over 
the next few years.

Anyone have personal experience with CFL's as QRN generators ?
