Hi Bill,  thanks for your input. It appears each light has its own attached power supply and the ones you suggested are large in comparison.   

Unfortunately all my radio equipment is in storage so I can’t do any testing.

It’s either gamble with these or put in some other known lighting which doesn’t cause RFI
