How far apart are (were) the UPSs and the 8170s?

Do the 8170s still work if you locate them somewhere nice or does the
crap from the UPSs get back out on the power line and polute the
whole area?  (In which case the problem could be from UPSs in
other buildings/organizations...)

Do home size UPSs have the same problem?  Perhaps killing the
"atomic" clocks in the rest of the house?  (The ones that set
themselves from WWVB.)
