Radiosignal (russian)

Radiosignal (russian)
Why do I get Radiosignal thru the effects. I know that WhaWha pedals do that but I haven't had it before, it started with the AxisFuzz (Roger Mayer schem).  
The Guitar goes thrue a handmade distorion box with 5 distortion effects all with thrue bypass.  
Guitar -> TS9 -> Guv'Nor -> YJM308 -> AxisFuzz -> Microamp -> WhaWha -> ZOOM GX707 -> Amp (Marshall Bluesbreaker).  
The radiosignal is only there when the AxisFuzz is on, TS9, Guv'Nor, YJM308 no problem.  
Why Why Why ?

must be problem with axis fuzz, no? maybe you check circuit in axis fuzz. maybe no grounded correctly, yes?

You got germanium diodes in that fuzz at all?,they are good radio signal detectors.But like Igor says about grounding is good.

Examine all your cables for any not sheilded. For example using a speaker cable anywhere in the input chain will introduce RF. also a sheilded cable with bad sheild will do this.
