According to this CBC Article, “BC Hydro may begin installing thousands of light emitting diode (LED) street lights across the province this summer”.
Hopefully they invest in good quality power converters otherwise the HF bands might get pretty noisy.
Update: I emailed our regional RAC director and here’s the very informative email he sent me back:
While I can appreciate your concern, there are some considerations.
“No person shall manufacture, import, distribute, lease, offer for sale or sell any radio apparatus, interference-causing equipment or radio-sensitive equipment for which technical standards have been established under paragraph 6(1)(a), unless the apparatus or equipment complies with those standards”
My experience does not match yours.
Nothing in the field of EMC is guaranteed and this will merit ongoing monitoring. If you can take a wide band “reference noise spectrum” now for comparison later it would be appreciated. It would be particularly useful if you turn off your house power to prove that the noise source(s) are external.
