I used to speak in the phone in front of that monitor. If I moved the handset (a non-wireless Ericsson Diavox) closer than 10 cm from the monitor, the remote party asked, "what is that noise?" I couldn't observe any changes in the colours. That monitor has a decent demagnetizer coil, though. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
