Going to be fun to see how longer before they cause RF issues.

Whole neighborhood where I live has all gone LED. And the city owned electric has them on every single pole around here. Except for one which is still the Sodium Vapor (Orange in color) fixture. I haven't noticed any difference in the noise floor here, across the band. My new "smart TV" kills my low-band reception unfortunately.

But the street lights, despite being dimmer and making it darker out there than the old SV lights, haven't changed anything here.
