Good evening Stuart,
Just a note about what Eric was saying about the compact fluorescent lightbulbs interfering with AM radio signals to the extent that if you have one light on in the house, you have no radio…well I had three on during his call, including one about a metre and a half from the radio, and I could not hear any interference. I then picked up the radio to test his theory, and I had to bring the radio within five centimetres of the bulb to get a minor buzz.
If his bulbs are knocking out his radio, then his bulbs are faulty and should be replaced.
I love these lightbulbs, mainly because I prefer the light they produce to the light a traditional incandescent bulb produces. The fact that they cost less to run and last a lot longer than the average bulb is a bonus. And as for the dimmers, there are a handful of CFLs that work with dimmers, they aren't very common yet, but they will be (not that I'm a huge fan of dimmers anyway).
P.S. Congratulations on your new 2UE promo…it's almost funny to think that you've had a promo on 2CC for months and you've only just got one on 2UE!
