it was wierd, i was just jammin using practice headphones, then i stopped to look at the strings and i heard through the 'phones "i've never done that before" then an muffled reply. living on a hill w/ lots of cell towers, it was likley a cell phone. keep in mind i have humbucker pickups and was using full distortion

Its because your pickups aren't shielded properly. You will need to get copper shielding and line your pickup cavities with it, that should get rid of all unwanted "noise".

That's not the only cause. Sometimes a pedal will pick up radio, especially wah pedals. Sometimes it's the amp that's to blame. I have the same problem, and it gets much worse when I'm at school... apparantly Lake Erie acts as a huge radio antennae, so when I'm at school in Cleveland it amplifies the issue.

there's not much you can do about it, unless you want to go through every piece of equipment in your setup and replace transformers or resistors until you get rid of the cheap one that's giving you issues.

By the way, the quote in your signature is wrong, it should read "there is no dark side of the Moon really... matter of fact it's all dark"
