LED light bulbs cause RFI W7DRM on 13/5/17
Hyperikon size E26 BR40 LED spotlights - installed 9 of these in in recessed, grounded luminaire fixtures in the shop.

The LED lamps claim to be dimmable. I didn't intend to get dimmables, but am stuck with them now. They are bright and consume 16W each. Claims to be "Samsung technology" on the hyperikon website.

Only thing is ... they generate an enormous amount of RFI in the VHF band. The noise is broadband, shows full scale on my FT60 (open squelch, of course) when the lamps are turned on. The noise seems to come with this model lamp no extra charge.

Definitely not recommended anywhere a VHF signal is to be received.
Travel Plus: Run Time Error 3204 N1UW on 30/9/15
Had this 3204 error too, with Travel Plus 18.

It's not a UAC issue, it's Travel Plus not wanting to play under anything less than full admin rights. Windows 10 is especially granular with it's folder permissions, so it breaks old programs like Travel Plus.

Easy fix:
If the user will (under Windows 7, 8, 10) right click the Travel Plus icon, and click "Run as Administrator", Travel Plus doesn't throw the 3204 error.

That's assuming the user is logged on as part of the administrator group, not a good idea these days. Travel Plus is a dinosaur of a program that really needs its UI rewritten to behave more like it's 21st century peers, IMHO.
