Your application = Ham radio?
I know that switching power supplies make RF noise, but I've not had
any real problems with that (not with the PC PSs I've converted
anyways.) If I did, I'd put the power supply in a metal box, put
ferrite beads around the wires in and out, maybe some more large
capicators in parallel with the outputs and probably be fine.
What I've found to really make RF noise is my Triton charger -- that
thing seems to make more noise than anything else I have, affecting
both HF and VHF. It's a great charger, but I don't use it at the same
time as my radios anymore :)
