[RFI] Computer monitors that are RFI quiet

Guess most of us faced the same issues after finding out that our monitors
were really full of birdies and downright awful on some frequencies.  I
found that the European Standards were much more stringent than the FCC Type
B (for home use).  FCC Type A (for commercial use) can be really bad.  I
bought the Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 87TXM.  It is a 17 inch and is perfectly
quiet in my FT1000MP setting two inches to the side.  You do pay more for
the quiet monitors.

Subject: [RFI] Computer monitors that are RFI quiet



I am looking for a new computer monitor and I want to find one that is well
shielded so that it does not send RFI to my radio equipment.

I am currently using a ViewSonic PT775 (17-inch) and it is a nice monitor
but
puts out a lot of birdies on the HF bands.  I think there was some
discussion
a while ago about certain brands that are better.  Unfortunately I cannot
find
the info now.

Are there some models that have been found to be relatively RFI clean?

Thanks.
