[RFI] Schwinn 820P

My experience with a treadmill (a neighbor's):

After explaining to the neighbors that I could
hear it/it affected radio bands beginning with
the AM Broadcast band extending through HF
and 6 Meters and also into the lower VHF TV
channels - I think they got rid of it.

(Either that, or they have just never used it again.)

The interference from that treadmill was horrid. I
believe the solid-state drive of the motor under
the control of a microprocessor was the problem,
coupled with zero shielding/zero filtering back into
the AC mains.

I never got the maker/model number from them
