QRM from Plasma TVs

Hams in Ontario are reporting that they are getting considerable HF interference from plasma screen televisions, and have asked the Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) for help. Southgate News reports that RAC has asked its members who own plasma TVs to gather data and report on their own interference problems as well as possible solutions. Specific makes and model numbers are requested along with descriptions of the HF ham station, antenna and exact nature of the interference. RAC would also like to hear from hams who have plasma TVs but do not experience interference problems. Reports should go to Norm Rashleigh, VE3LC, RAC VP/Industrial Liaison, at <>.
