A slightly odd question, but hopefully somebody will be able to help!

Around 15 years ago, I had a really old computer running Windows 98 which had, from memory, a pair of speakers connected via 3.5. Every time a police car drove near the house, I could hear them really clearly on the speakers until they drove by. How would this have been possible on a wired pair?

  • I had the same issue some years ago! I could hear radio frequencies and people talking from my PC's speakers, even if the PC was turned off! – papakias Aug 2 at 13:11
