radio station on phone lines

radio station on phone lines

We're in Roxborough near the "antenna farm". We just got Comcast phone service. We've always had a little trouble with hearing some radio stations on our phones, but now that we've switched from Verizon to Comcast, it is much, much worse.

 

The cordless phone we have plugged directly into the modem is ok, unless we split it there and hook up another phone line from another room, then the radio interference goes from faint to very noticeable.

 

The answering/fax machine on the floor above is practically useless, the radio is so loud. For instance, if someone leaves a message and then hangs up, the answering machine keeps recording because it hears the radio station.

 

I tried some snap-on ferrite things from Radio Shack, but they don't help at all.

 

Any suggestions?

I found out the identity of the radio station, in case anyone is interested. It is WNWR 1540 AM:
