In seriousness, let me add that when you say "old" you open up a can
of RF worms.
Most cordless phones are UHF *now* (35-cm band or higher), but go back
a decade and a lot were still VHF-lo (45-50 MHz). Go back two or more
decades and some used MF (around 1.7 MHz, IIRC) for half the circuit
with 45-50 MHz on the other side.
