Re: Flourescent light fixture

If the housing and translucent cover are OK why not buy a 12 volt flourescent wander light or [ better still LED ] from Walmart auto.

Gut your old fitting and transfer the innards from wander light. Cheaper than buying a new ballast.

You may find you need a RF choke if it is noisy on the VHF.
