Hi Frank, 

Are the light dimmers for incandescent lamps or LED lamps, or...? 

I have a pair of bathroom mirrors with the borders backlit by hundreds 
of tiny dimmable LED lamps. The RFI is incredibly strong! Thankfully 
I don't operate in contests or chase DX when I'm shaving...

I'd be extremely interested to know what the correct Lutron model was 
that solved this problem. 

I've been dealing with several nearby Lutron and Leviton dimmers for 
many months now. Earlier this year I had a phone conversation with a 
Lutron rep, who suggested trying one model which I subsequently bought, 
but which didn't help at all. Then again, these dimmers are much closer 
than 900 feet away from me. 

Thanks much,
