    I need to replace my anchor light due to corrosion in the socket. I was looking at an LED light. This will sit on top of a radar mast along with 2 GPS antenna's. Would this have any interference with the radar emission or GPS? I have seen that LED's have had some kind of electrical interference but not sure of the exact situation. Thanks for any advice.

    You have a very good looking mast in your kitchen. :)

    Haven’t had any trouble, led’s in the red light as well as the white. Plus a deck light that’s not pictured as well as the forward led lights which aren’t wired yet. We’ll see....

    Thanks guys for the advice. I'll order one of these lights. Apparently it won't interfere with the coffee maker also?

    Good for you, I thought it would work well in certain applications, especially where you may need additional height above the Nav lights. I also like the fold down feature. Let us know how it works out for you.

    Thanks mud!
    Things weren’t quite finished up there, got another Morad for the other side for a second radio, radar dome is up and working, got rid of the electric tape.....
    I’ll check back to this thread when all the led stuff is going hopefully won’t get interference with electronics.

    Received my Lumitec yesterday, it’s very slim but feels sturdy in construction. The folding feature is nice for trailering and the detents lock in place securely.
