Default RE: Question about Radio Interference

Radios will respond to any kind of "noise" in the spectrum, even though that noise may not cause you problems. As for miles, radios will transmitt a signal for a great many miles, and depending on the sensitivity of the reciever, and the terrain, the receiver may detect it. I am a radio amateur, and I once sat in my driveway in San Diego, and carried on a conversation with someone in Hawaii, on my mobile rig (low power), on 50 mHz. Propagation factors were just right.
