Re: Interior Lighting Upgrades

Alpenglows have been on the boat since the early 90s.

Originally had the CFLs. Reworked ballasts by Alpenglow which greatly minimized the normal Radio Frequency Interference of CFL on the HAM/SSB radios.

Recently sent all of the lights to Alpenglow to be upgraded to LEDs. Some of the CFLs were already red/white but had all them upgraded to Red/White LEDs.

Quality/color of the light is excellent.

Kudos to Alpenglow for offering an upgrade rather then toss/ebay the CFLs.
