I have the same problems here.  Can someone relate how to control the noise
in an SCR device by modifying the device.  Often neighbors don't want to get
rid of the culprits. Is there a good fix, like putting a capacitor in the
SCR controller, or line filtering? If you have had any success with fixing,
rahter than replacing, please let me know. Tnx,  Bob  N7UA
