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?  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

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.
