I've been tracking down some intermittent, severe RFI, using a portable 
short-wave radio to identify possible in-house sources..  I just put the 
antenna of the radio next to the screen of my monitor and was 
surprised/shocked by the noise it picked up.  I note, however, that at a 
distance of less than two feet I cannot hear the monitor any more. 
Moreover,cutting power to the monitor causes no change in the received 
noise on my K3, so I assume the racket is harmless.
