The problem is not halogen bulbs, but the switching power supplies now used
instead of low voltage transformers. Lamp dimmers too are prolific
interference sources. As for energy-saving screw-in fluorescents, some are
fine, some are cheap crud, and some ... change. I had one develop a
malfunction that efficiently (!) jammed 2-70 MHz.
