 Bill and the list.Those aren't good old lamination and copper wire
transformers,they are rotten stinking ~!@#$%^&*( switchmode supplies which
as you have discovered emit RF across all bands!Pull 'em out and replace
with iron! Bah,a pox on the switchmode manufacturers.

Subject: [RFI] RFI from low voltage lighting?

I don't understand this. I have a few Alfa low voltage lights (ceiling
transformers) around the house. They seem to be broad band HF noise
They aren't on dimmers. It seems to me that a 120:12 volt transformer
and a
halogen lamp shouldn't be an RFI source. Any ideas?
