TV through my amp!?!

So this was a new one...

 

I was playing along with some Neil Young and Crazy Horse. I had my Les Paul through my Voodoo Labs SuperFuzz to get that heavy overdrive tone of his.

 

When I stopped playing for a minute, I heard someone talking. It was...some sort of television or radio signal that was coming in loud and clear through my Mesa Boogie.

 

None of my rig is wireless. But when I stepped on the SuperFuzz and turned it off? Voice gone.

 

WTF? Any insights?

A buddy of mine back in the late 80's had a big old amp, cant remember the brand but as soon as you switched it on you could pick up a russian radio station (we were in Scotland). To this day i have no idea wtf was going on. maybe its the magnets and wires acting as some kind of wierd receiver?

Really? nothing?

 

I do have the stab all the way down on my fuzz factory and the comp and gate are really low... maybe that's why :-k

 

Nope I've never had even a hint of radio interference with it and I've tried pretty much every setting imaginable. I don't know if you've used a Torn's Peaker but they can get pretty noisey. My Fuzz Factory isn't even close to as noisey as the TP. The TP has really grown on me though I have to say. I like it better than the Hoof.

 

If you could post a picture of the settings where you get radio interference that would be cool. I want to see if mine will do it.

Yeah... this kinda stuff has been going on for years... I'm surprised some TV would come through, though, 'cuz I thought almost everything was digital for signals.

 

Some, I think, has to do also with placement and direction of everything being "right."

 

But I also think folks have no idea what we've got for "rf" flying through the air.
