I have a telephone recording device that attaches to the handset of the
[corded] phone [it is a Radio shack device]. When attached inline with a
cordless phone and using the voice activated feature on my digital
recorder there is a constant buzzing that results in the recorder
continuously recording [that buzz]! Does your device cancel out that
noise so I can use the VOX feature on my recorder?
There could be several reasons for this. This can be an ongoing problem when using a cordless phone.
Particularly when they are a digital phone but also the problem can
occur with any type of wireless phone operating in the 900Mhz to 5.4Ghz
range. The problem stems from the signal that is created from the
wireless phone. This signal will interfere with normal communications.
Similar to when your cell phone rings next to your radio when it is on.
You will hear static come through the speaker of the device.
Also one other problem that can cause a hissing or static sound on the
line is if your cordless phone is plugged into the same outlet as other
devices stereo, TV, microwave, etc.
Odds are if you can hear it on your phone the recorder will pick it up.
Since the mic inputs on the small recorders are very sensitive it will
probably compound this effect.
The first thing I would try would be to make sure that your cordless
phone is the only electronic device in the wall outlet. If this does
not work try using the device on an older style hardwired phone.
Also make sure that you are not sharing the phone line with your
computer. If you have DSL make sure you have the filter for the phone
side of the DSL line attached. And definitely do not bridge your
cordless phone off of your DSL router if you have one.

Do you have any sprays that can be used to identify any burglars who might steal from your home?
Mace and the other brands of pepper spray with the UV dye ingredient - The UV dye can only be viewed under a UV light. However, the pepper formulation itself has a very bright red color, that even when mixed with other agents, will show up as at least a bright orange visible without a UV light.
