Here's one you haven't heard yet!
by Finewest on 2013-01-28 21:45:25

I plug in my pedal board into the DT-25 112 guitar input and it plays really nice for a while then... splat! fiiiizzzzeeee... fuuuuuzzzz.... static with a christian radio station clearly in the mix! I'm tripping! OK... unplug the board and plug guitar direct in and it is fine. Plug into my POD HD Pro connect via sync cable and it is fine. Replug in my board and boom! I am told with much white noise I need to be saved NOW! OK... Now I'm scared and considering hitting my knees to the ground in humbled contrition, but hey man I can beat this! I got LINE SIX on my side... so fire your questions away. I sure would like this to GO AWAY!

Check/switch all your cables first.  One of them may be going bad and acting like an antenna and picking up the signal.  If that doesn't work, unplug each one of your effects one at a time and see it the problem goes away.  Again, one of your effects may have a circuit that is resonant at that broadcast frequency.  Do you have any wireless gear on your pedal board?  Try changing channels if you have them or making sure it is turned off.

If none of that helps, sell the pedals and learn to love your HD Pro...  A little prayer won't hurt either...  Good luck and let us know what happens.

Yea, I have run into this a few times...

You will need 2 live chickens, a goat, ax, lighter fluid, red sidewalk chaulk and five scented candles...

First, draw a pentegram on the floor of the room in which this occurred. Next, place the amp in the middle of the pentagram and place the candles on each point of the star....Don't light the candles yet...use a liberal amount of lighter fluid to trace the chaulk pentagram. Ok, this next part you have to do really quickly.... Turn on your amp, light each candle and ignite the pentagram...take each chicken's head off with the ax and place the head in front of your amp. At this point, the noise should be gone....Nothing you need to do with the goat, he was jsut there to watch.

All great and funny answers! That's what makes us "entertainers".... LOL...

OK... I tried this and that. did some Internet reading and moved my pedal board's power plug to the same socket the amp is on and wam bam ma'am it's gone! Some sort of ground loop? I hate tech stuff!

ps. the reason I have a pedalboad, and a Line 6 POD HD Pro, is one is for traveling/gigging/, the other for home studio.

pps. being a Buddhist/Atheist hearing some spooky static'ed voice telling me to repent was disconcerting to say the least! ah ah hahah haah ahahah aaah!!!

Now all you have to do is find a way to integrate it in demand for an effect.

Wow, this is so weird - I've had the exact same experience!  Although in my case I was only plugged into my HD500 - my DT50 wasn't on.  But I could hear very clearly through my headphones a minister/pastor preaching the fire & brimstone message with fervor.  Funny thing is, I'm a Christian and I know the local Christian radio stations in my area (I'm in the Austin TX area) and this was definitely not one of them.  Makes me wonder if we're somehow picking up short wave frequencies or something.  It has happened a couple of times over the last year and I totally forgot about it until I saw this post!

I have a Strat with single coils and a PlanetWaves cable that's probably 10 feet long.  I wonder if there's some special combination of pickups, cable, power outlet, etc that brings in this wavelength.  I noticed that by moving around with my guitar I could bring it in stronger or make it sorta go away.  It was very remarkable and freaked me out at first.
