Hearing a dialup connection on a FM car radio? Answered

My mum was driving to uni and we hear a dial-up connection over the radio twice or three times, on 103.50 FM to be exact. A little while ago i rang my mum and she was in the same place and suddenly the phone goes silent and it starts making all different tones. What's happening? What's causing it? Why's it on the FM band


. My guess is that you are getting very close to a cell repeater. It is splattering the car radio and overloading the phone. Just a guess.

So thats what it is, next time we drive past, well look for a tower
