Ok, my Fender HotRod picks-up radio signals (90.1 to be exact), and I know that is not exactly uncommon at all (all of my amps have done it at some point), but is there anything I can do really? It's starting to get obnoxious because it's picking-up quite well, and classical/talk just doesn't go well with clean guitar. I like where my amp is so I don't really want to move it, but I will if I need to.

Thansk!

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.

it goes away for the most part if I take out the cables. You can still kinda here it, though. Basically, with each piece I take-off, it gets quieter, but doesnt go away


EDIT: By the way, the flip-flop idea is what I might resort to...that or hammer

It could be a dodgey earth. Try a different power outlet. The earth in the amp itself could be dicky too. Try a different outlet first - preferably in a different house - preferably a new house.

Move your amp to a different location in the house. Also, the tin covers you can get for preamp tubes can actually help out quite a bit if you don't have any.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.
