Not sure if you can shield a touch faucet because the whole idea is to
touch (conduct RF) and turn on.

I bought one of the touchless (not touch) faucets to replace an old
leaky faucet. Moen Cadia it is called, and sold at costco.

No problems with that one.

It works great, allowing washing hands without messing with the faucet handle.  However, I recently discovered the faucet turns on when I transmit power on 20 meters.  Also, my XYL decided she wanted one of these faucets for the main kitchen, and informed me that her faucet behaved erratically one evening when I was operating CW on 80 meters with 800 watts.
> Anyone know how to shield a touch faucet?  The model I have is Delta Faucet Leland Touch Kitchen Faucet.  It is powered by 6 AA batteries.  The battery pack is connected to the valve via a pair of wires about 3 feet in length.  There is also a single wire about two feet in length connecting the valve to the faucet.
