Frank et al ..
I have in use a system just like you want .. Uniden PowerMax 5.8GHz ... and 
have never been happier with a phone set-up!  I have NO RFI problems .. 
running 16ØM thru 440MHz -- using QRO, and whatever mode....
will probably add another phone or 2, one for the kitchen and one for the 
work shop, in case we forget to haul one there... and, of course, that will 
cause the phones to ring!  HIHI ..  Also, no problems the other way, with 
the system getting into ham equipment.  The speaker phones in the handsets 
are phenomenal .. Highly recommend, have had ours about 2 years, came from 
COSTCO, approx $160 on a special, w/3 hand phones.. have seen very similar 
there from time to time... Also, have 2 GE 5.8 phones that came "free" with 
my Sunrocket VOIP  .. have not noticed any problems with them either, but 
have not used them in all operating conditions.. ..  .. 73

Ahoy doldrum mates

I just went to cable digital phone service.
I want to switch from my analog telephones to a 5.8ghz base station with
3 satellite phones spread around the apt.
My analog phones picked up a lot of RF noise and I'm hoping their are
good quality (rejection) cordless systems.
I don't want to spend approximately $200 and be stuck with something
inferior as far as rejection goes.
If not, I will be limited to purchasing from the (few) distributors that
permit return in case it is inferior.
Any suggestions?
