Post Strange radio noise feedback
When I plug my guitar (PRS) into my tubescreemer keely ts90 then into my randal amps, I get radio feedback, like a am radio station from somewhere.

I am using monster cables.

Any idea why this is happening?

Well, I'm not quite sure "why" it happens, but it is very very normal to have that happen when you have humongous amounts of gain that is being used.

I'd suggest maybe back off on the gain/distortion/overdrive levels, and/or getting an NS-2.

Here's a video of Yngwie using it.

Some effects pedals pick up radio signals. My Zvex Fuzz Factory picks up radio stations sometimes.

This is usually from to pick-ups (usually single coil) acting as radio antennas, due to the way they are put together using coils of wire, which extremely similar to the way radio antennas work

You could send messages back and forth from here to mars with a fuzz factory.
