I am getting ready to walk out the door to go the other side of the state for two days, so this will be brief.
I am just going to tell you where I was going with this, then you can do some research yourself, and I will give it some thought as well while I am
away and check the thread again when I get back.
The reason I was asking if it happened when you were not around is to eliminate if it was something on or about you personally, like your car phone,
if you wear a magnetic bracelet, if you have a pacemaker, etc.
If it is something that was going on at work I would let your IT department or the person that maintains your computers know about it.
The earth has been getting bombarded by solar storms over the last week; it has the ability to effect electronic equipment, and especially satellite
equipment. Depending where you are in the world this might have had more effect on your area then others, and have even effected the satellite
provides and electric company in your area.
I do not know if a normal satellite dish has the ability to transmit or not, but I see no reason why it could not other then home models my not have
the extra equipment on them to transmit back to the satellite, and the satellite might not know what to do with the data once it received it. I am not
really up on satellite technology; you might find someone else here that is.
The thing with the fan and radio at first look seemed mundane, but may not be. The radiation from my cell phone ringing often sets off my alarm clock
radio if it is close by. It is common to send an electrical spike through your house when you shut off or turn on certain devices, and that is going
to often show on devices that transmit and receive signals. Like when you turn on an electric razor and the TV goes nuts and it gets static. But this
does not usually show up on appliances that are shut off, it sounds to me like there might be something weird with the wiring in your house.
The conversations on the radio, sounds like the frequencies got crossed, again this might all have to do with the solar storm, you can find info about
if on the web, check space.com, and space weather.com..
