I don't have a problem really with CFL or LED light or their longevity. What gets me is the amount of RF noise they can create. Using my hand held 2m radio and a yagi I can pin point problem areas easily. Once you get to HF frequencies it get really bad. If everyone on the block has all of their lights on you can pretty much kiss doing any dx'ing goodbye.
What every happened to the FCC/IC rule enforcement that says you cannot create harmful interference? Granted less and less people are SWL but there are a lot of ham radio people out there.
