    All of a sudden, since I bought my new house - I'm getting faint radio reception through my Marshall (or somewhere else in the rig). I have never had this problem before - anybody else had it or know where to look to eliminate it?

    grrrrrrrr...

    Ask Nigel Tufnel. He's had similar problems.

    Yeah, I remember trying to do some recording, and about every 10 seconds or so some yapjaw on a cb kept coming in through my amp, really bugged the hell out of me. I remember in fact going to Radio Shack and bought a filter, cleared that bozo right out of there! Really inexpensive device to take care of a HUGE problem! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    And beyond the horizon.... a sound was heard.

    Is the filter like a condom for a plug in....it's happened to me and I just re-wound the ground wire of the outlet and changed the position of my amp...seemed to work...but who knows how this happens.
    Just go for it!

    sometimes you can pfutz with the house wiring, sometimes you can move the amp...sometimes the solution costs $, sometimes it doesn't. one of those weird-ass things. friend of mine was picking up the local country station through his computer, blamed it on the provider. turns out it was his crappy 28K modem. try all the cheap stuff first, even though the filters are cheap.

    If you have an antenna on top of your house, maybe you should see if the ground wires are ground to it. I fyou can't tell, then move your amp..maybe you'll get a better station! [img]tongue.gif[/img]
