CRT's give out TERRIBLE NOISE IN THE 60 and 30 HTZ RANGE. IF YOU DO ANY 
LOW LEVEL RECORDING WITH THE MONITER ON IT WILL INTRODUCE SUCH A HUM 
INTO ANY AMPLIFIED ELECTROMAGNETIC INPUT (including even microphones) AS 
TO MAKE IT UNUSEABLE.


I have found I must turn the crt's off beofre recording and then back on 
when finished.

Additionaly some cellphones such as sidekicks and blue tooth devices 
give off loud intermittent bursts of signals. Balckberrys treo and 
sidekicks if within 2 feet of a car radio with actually be easily heard 
in the car radio.

I think lcds are much lower however best is to eleimate all equipment 
20ft from the area and turn off what you can't eliminate.
