[RFI] GFI Problem

IF the problem is with just one or a few GFIs you can install ferrite 
clam shells over the fault leads and if that doesn't effect a cure 
install the clam shells over the power leads feeding the circuit breaker 
or GFI socket (which ever).  

The main feed could be picking up enough RF to pass it through to the 
GFI but more likely it's the actual house wiring that is acting as an 
antenna.  Installing .01mfd cap. across the hot to neutral lines at the 
GFI sockets through the house may reduce the amount of RF floating on 
the house wiring enough to resolve your RFI problem.

Insure your feedlines to all antennas are not responsible for bring RF 
back into the operating position/ house.

Good Luck,
