Right this is a question about some radio noise that I picked up from my speakers last night.
My speakers were plugged into my tv with the volume off, this tv was plugged into a Freeview box which had an aerial cable plugged into that connects to the aerial in the loft.
Just after I plugged in the speakers I heard some sounds coming from them even though the volume was set to 0 and the tv was turned off. I put the speakers to my ears and I heard radio stations that seemed to be fading in and out (increasing and decreasing in volume) and there must of been more than 5 (maybe loads more) and some were speaking in french and russian and no one radio station was clearly audible for more than about 3 seconds, even whilst you could hear one you could hear another in the background, this would then fade out and another would fade in.
When I removed the aerial cable the radio reception would stop so I think the aerial in the loft must of been picking up the radio stations, a strange thing is that I tried the same setup this morning and I couldn't pick up any radio stations, also I swear I could hear really old and odd music that was pretty spooky at the time (like out of a movie), sung in french so is it possible to pick up old radio signals or do they fade away?
Also how could I have picked up this signals in the first place?
Could the weather have been the cause? (it was slightly stormy last night, low pressure)
Why did I pick up loads of different radio stations?
Why did they keep fading in and out?

It's a conspiracy.

You have received extra terrestrial information from the either the daleks, cybermen or some other unidentified alien species.
Call 999 and ask for 'The Doctor'.

Yes I believe it is most likely the shapeshifting lizards from the future telling me about their invasion...
Wrong forum to post on it looks like, I actually got informative replies on another, turns out that:
- The aerial in the loft must of been acting as a receiver, and I my speakers converting any signals received into sound. Someone also said that it might be possible to pick up sound from television stations aswell.
- Radio waves propagate further at night and in stormy conditions explaining the french and russian radio stations.
- Several stations may exist on the same bandwidth of frequencies picked up causing them to fade in and out, this could also be due to changing conditions.
- Radio waves cannot last years so that rules out picking up old radio messages... obviously.Last edited by Maniachris; 27-07-2009 at 11:37.
