I recently bought an A.T. & T. 9357 cordless telephone and digital answering machine combo. #My previous phone answering system, a Panasonic, had no problems at all with RFI but this one does.

Whenever I transmit, even at low power, I can hear my voice through the speaker, the machine rings, and sometimes it replays messages in memory as if I'd hit the button for that function.

Even QRP power levels on CW cause this to happen. #My rig is a Kenwood TS-140S and my antenna is an AEA Isoloop mounted in the attic. #I plan on getting an outdoor antenna soon, but need a solution that will help now. #

Although sometimes there's interference on the phones, this one seems to be the worst. #The bands I transmit on are 30-10 meters including WARC.

I would appreciate any advice from someone who has dealt with this problem.

Thank you.
