In general, solar powered garden lights won't interfere with radio signals. Solar powered garden lights incorporate a solar cell (or cells) to drive the lights in the fixtures. This is all an issue of direct current and its application. DC (direct current) doesn't generally interfere with radio signals (unless it is switched on and off rapidly, which is not going to be the case with the solar garden lights).

What could be causing frequency interference at 101.1 FM on a plug-in home radio?

There are at least 50 different possible sources of perceived interference to an FM radio. Most likely is electrical noise from a nearby motor, fluorescent light fixture, or light dimmer. That's my opinion; I could be wrong.

What is a choke in electric panel?

It could be to filter out outside interference from getting out or in. Radio equipment needs good filtering in the supply.

WHY are windmill farms built?

They were built because the windmill allowed the farmers and their families to have electric lights and radio.

What do you mean by interference and noise in electronics signals and systems?

One person's interference is another person's signal ... literally. For example, in ordinary AM radio, signals on the same frequency as a local station, but coming from another city some distance away, may cause background sounds that make listening to the station difficult or unpleasant. In other cases, transmitters emit 'harmonics' of their intended radio signal, which overlay carriers on other frequencies producing a similar effect. There are many other causes and sources of interference. Noise is another matter however, although it also 'interferes' with the operation of systems. Ordinarily, noise is no one else's signal, that is, it does not carry any information. Sources of noise include automobile ignition systems, electric motors, and the Sun, among many other things. The result is the same as far as the signal of interest is concerned however - both noise and interference cause problems receiving the desired signal properly, whether by causing objectionable sounds in the background of a radio program, 'snow' on a (non-digital) TV display, or errors in digital reception or data transmission (which can cause the complete loss of a digital TV signal for example). Noise and interference are also problems in systems where there is no intent to transmit or receive a radio carrier. For example, in computer systems, traces on circuit boards or in cables move data from one place to another in order to carry out the functions of the system. When traces are placed next to each other over (relatively) long distances on the circuit board or in a cable, the impulses can couple into the adjacent traces causing errors in the data transferred, such as corruption of data files or malfunctions of programs. In this example, the source of the problem is technically 'interference', but noise can also occur within systems, for example from a defective power supply or a poor contact in a connector. Many techniques are widely used to avoid the problems of noise and interference, including shielding, twisted pair wiring, FM and PM modulation, and forward error correction (FEC) among others. --- Very lengthy explanation of something very simple, NOISE INTERFERENCE is really unwanted signals introduced by noisy parts. Interference, however, may come from radio, tv, magnetics, and many other sources, including blocking of the signals. --- (See discussion)

What is the frequencies in the range of RF waves used by commercial radio broadcasting stations?

Each country has different frequency bands allocated for AM and FM radio. In the U.S. AM takes up the range from 535KHz to 1605KHz. FM radio takes 88.0MHz to 108.0MHz.Each radio station then receives a slice of that frequency band, regulated by the FCC. Each station is typically given a frequency far from all other stations. For example, three stations would be given the frequencies 93.3MHz, 94.5MHz and 96.1MHz. In theory, the stations could be closer (ie 94.3MHz, 94.5MHz and 94.7MHz) though this is rarely done because each station would then cause more interference to its neighbors.(The stations don't actually 'cause interference' to their neighbors. The weaknessis the ability of consumer-grade receivers to separate stations whose frequenciesare close together.)

Is it possible that radio waves will cause interference with the kichler under-cabinet lights?

It is very rare for radio was to cause interference with the Kichler under-cabinet lights. If it does cause interference I would call the people who installed it or if you did it yourself find the local dealership and have a talk with them.

Does powerline networking cause radio interference?

Not if it's properly installed and adjusted.

Will a radio controlled car cause interference with my Sirrius radio?

No,since the sirrius is part of the satellite it should be fine

How do you supress the radio interference caused by fluorescent fixtures?

Because they give off RF energy. This Radio Frequency signal will interfere with any radio near by. Cheap shop lights are the worst. More expensive well made fluorescent lights limit the amount of interference and should not be a problem. A loose ground wire will also cause the light to hum and interfere even more. High Intensity lights are best for an unheated garage.

Will a radio control car cause interference with my satellite TV?

No,it should be fine as a satellite is more prone to open waves then a car radio

How can you say interference in a sentence?

There was interference with the radio signal.

What would cause a buzzing sound on your radio when you turn on your low-voltage accent lights under your kitchen cabinet?

Electromagnetic interference. Remember that light is electromagnetic radiation. Radio waves are nothing more than a different "color" of light (albeit a color which is invisible to our human eyes).
