Re: Has anyone ever picked up a radio station on their amp before?
I was in a band in the '80s that used a homemade snake for cabling mics to our sound board. We used to play a club that was lined up with the approach path of the runways at BWI airport. During our first gig at this place, we kept receiving ****pit and air traffic control communications through our pa system. We narrowed it down to 2 send cables that were badly shielded.
Just recently, when I got my new JSX head set up at our rehearsal space, I made the mistake of running the footswitch cable in the same bundle as the main signal cable and effects send and return. We were able to hear cordless phone conversations and noise from remote control units. Depending on where I stood in the room, I could pickup a radio announcer speaking Russian.
