The answer is probably. Of course I've got a 1990 Twinhead Laptop which
generates more interference than something like my PDP-11/44, PDP-11/73, or
PDP-8/m. Actually that laptop is the onlything I can think of that I've
got that does generate troublesome interference. It can be in another room
and mess up a TV in the next room. IIRC, if it's in the same room as the
TV, the TV is unwatchable.
