I posted a couple of weeks ago that my amp was picking up a country radio station, even though there didn't seem to be a source for it anywhere in the house. I thought it was due somehow to the overall poor condition of the amp. When talking to a guy last night less than 1/2 mile, he said he has the same problem. As it turns out, he said there's a radio tower less than 2 miles from our houses. Is there anything that can be done to hopefully cover this up at all? At least it's not (c)rap, but country music isn't much better.

same thing happens with me. and radio towers near bye. its usually if i unplug my guitar then replu quickly. if you have the porblem just unplug chord then replug it. the only time it happens to me is right after i plug in or out so just keep on doing that until it stops i guess.

Is your amp solid state? A solid state amp has a transistor similar to that of a transistor radio. Try buying a tube amp.

But that would cost a lot more money.

I do need to replace my amp really bad. Are there any worthy tube amps to be had used for around $300?

Doesn't make a blind bit of difference - I can pick up radio stations on SS (mains and battery) and tube amps. It's the guitar + pickups, acting as an aerial, which picks up the signal - some guitars are worse than others. Shielding does help, but it sometimes doesn't eliminate it. Here are some tips on how to get rid of it :-

you just need a better shielded guitar cord.

the cord acts like an antenna and picks up stations.
