On A54 #69, I installed this replacement bulb:
Works like a charm and far brighter than the original LEDs. I did the test for noise, which involves turning your VHF on, with LED off, and adjusting squelch to the point where it eliminates background noise. Then I turn on the LED to see if noise shows up through the previously set squelch setting. If it does, the LED generates noise that the VHF can pick up. For this bulb, it did not. No other deleterious effects that I have noticed.
For the anchor light, I also installed this bulb:
It's worked great for 2 years already. When we anchor, I just leave the 24v mooring light switch "on" and the light turns on/off automatically as advertised.
I would suggest bending the tabs a bit on the light fixture and adding some silicone grease. Our tabs were a bit "tired" and also had some very very light surface corrosion.
