Yesterday I was practicing and I put my hand on the pitch antenna. As many of you can guess it started making electro blips and whiring noises, but I found that If I stood In just the right place and moved my fingers into the right position while touching the antenna radio signals or something started palying through the amp. I have no clue what it really was because it was really fuzzy, but there were some voices and maybe some music.

Anyone else ever do this? Was I picking up AM radio or something?

I've never had the problem with my Etherwaves, but my Theremax did pick up radio signals from time to time. I believe the key difference is that the Etherwave's oscillators run at a much higher rate.

Every once and a while when I play guitar that happens. Very Weird

Maybe voices from another time? I saw a movie in which one guy could talk by radio with his own father, 30 years in past time...
