    Hi I'm new to talkbass but used to post on's message boards a while ago.

    I was playing through my rig a couple minutes ago (ampeg B2r, sonic maximizer, and a hartke 2100 cab) and all of a sudden it started picking up radio signals. The volume on the amp and bass did nothing to adjust it, and the signal was fairly faint.

    I'm in a blizzard right now, is this the cause of the radio signals?

    Thanks alot,
  2. Were these regular radio station signals, or CR radio-type signals? I've had CB stuff come in through hi-fi amps before, some CB'ers will run illegal high-output transmitters, and these are even strong enough to bleed into high-dollar amps.

    Strange things can happen in blizzards, maybe a regular radio station's signal was doing something weird.
