Another "data" point on LED bulbs 

Yesterday one of the old curly que CFL bulbs started "arcing" at turn on for a few min in garage door opener and door opener would not operate 
from car tx and noisy in car AM radio too. 

I had a 10 pack box of Feit Electric 100W Daylight from Costco. ART 1090261 . Put a couple in - backed out of garage - door would not shut . Unscrewed the bulb closest to the ant hanging down and door would close with car TX (Bulb on other side still lit ) Incidentally the day I put these two bulbs in - the door closed Ok - I went to store - and came home and door started opening as usual two houses away when I pushed the button - but second day NOPE even with car sitting at garage door. So there MAY be a time issue ??? I put two 60 watt incandescents back in and all is normal. (I see on internet a company selling bulbs that will not kill garage door opener - so this is NOT a new thing .) 

FEIT "order nr" 
CEOM100/5K/LED/10 (N) (also on bulb) 

BULB has --- 
15W / 5000K / 12600lm 
120 vac / 60Hz / 140 ma 

UL LISTED50G6 1016 non dimmable 

I have not made any HF tests - garage door is around 325 mhz or so

The manufacturer is Commercial Electric, the installation instructions state that it meets FCC class B or at least they had one meet B during compliance testing.
