RFI - Smoke Detectors KJ6VAU on 28/8/12
I have a smoke detector operating on 120v.a.c. that is positioned on a ceiling approximately 4' below a G5RV antenna on a transmitter operating at 100 watts. The smoke detector has given me a false alarm twice in a period of 3 hours at a time when i was on the air.

Is is possible that i have RFI affecting the smoke detector?

Thanks,
