What’s making my phone buzz? / What’s making my power surge?

November 22nd, 2004

Updated: 25th November We’ve got two wireless phones in our house that receive a signal from a central pod from the master BT point. The phones work fine, except when stood in certain areas of the house. In these peculiar areas we get a buzzing noise in the phone. I’ve no idea why this is. […]

Wasp traps

August 5th, 2004
