I was on the phone long distance last night and I kept hearing ghostings of a radio program during the conversation. I’m in Ohio, I was calling Louisiana, and the station I was hearing was WEWN in Birmingham, Alabama. Apparently, I was the only one who could hear the radio station. Some brief Net searching turned up this information about WEWN (http://www.ksky.com/satelite.htm):
Frequency: 5.40 MHz
Here’s what I’d like to know, since you’re all such a bunch of smarty-pants :
- What’s going on here? How am I getting radio on my phone?
- Why could only I hear it, and not my friend?
- Why the hell was I picking up a station in Alabama?
- Is there any way to prevent this from happening in the future? It got quite loud at times. I dunno, something like aluminum foil wrapped around the receiver? grin
