Go to Radio Shack and get an RF choke and try it...they are cheap. I had a sump pump causing interference on a flat screen once and that did the trick. The sump wasn't even on the same circuit, just close enough proximity to cause an issue.

Is it direct radiation from the fixtures ?

if so sheild ballasts.


Or is it radiated from the cables ?

who listens to the friggin radio ? stop listening to the radio, problem solved.

get internet. listen to internet radio.

get a blue tooth dongle from radio shack, hook that up to your stereo and play the tunes from your phone or laptop.

the only radio you should have in your house (besides your digital scanner, vhf 2 way, and /or ham) is maybe the stereo next to the pool table (which should never be kept in the garage, unless it's got environmental controls)
