We all understand RFI is bad, or we wouldn't be here on this forum. 
This QTH used to be one of the quietest locations for many miles. 
Until Amtrak went electric with overhead wires 20 years ago.

I'm at the point of not needing to live anywhere in particular and am 
seriously considering to a retirement friendly state & a location 
that suits low RFI. It's too bad that older age allows more freedom 
while adding physical constraints and requiring potential health care 
resources that never used to be an issue when young & immortal. 

I do desire to relocate from the RFI around me but it's more 
difficult deciding where than ever before.

These damned street lights are only a part of my problem.
