We installed a dropped ceiling in our basement and put florescent lights in... now we can't get any FM radio stations even upstairs away from the lights. We tried buying a plug-in interference filter but it didn't do anything, we grounded the radio still static, we bought an aerial, still static. The only way to get anything is to turn the lights off. They are not even on the same circuit as the radio. Do I forever have to be in the dark to have my FM station? Help? The lights have magnetic ballast.

Check to see if your neutrals in your panel are all isolated. Ballast usually cause noise on the neutral. It may be backfeeding in the panel. Tighten all neurtal tight. Try that it might help.
