I'm digitizing several VHS that used to belong to my grandparents. They lived near an AM radio tower, and I have a lot of old stories visiting of being able to hear the radio station on all sorts of things - bathtubs, toasters, anything with metal. I'm noticing on the VHS tapes recorded on Hi-Fi, on the lower frequencies, I am hearing some cross-talk/cross chat that I can't explain to anything else. Linear audio (mono) VHS tapes from (what I think are) the same VHS/same area don't have (from what I've digitized so far) this crosstalk.
Was VHS hi-fi susceptible to AM interference, but not as much (or not at all) for linear audio? I was just curious. I don't know what I could do for it post, but, doesn't hurt to ask
Here is an example
of where I can distinguish interference/crosstalk happening.
