Phone crackles when it rains

I'm watching this thread as I had a Crackling Line which was near impossible to hear due to the noise and after normality has started again to make the line nera imposible to hear..

I contacted BT and they told me the line up to the socket was OK and that if I had an engineer come out I would be liable to something like a call out fee if they could find nothing. something like £99 I believe.

Phone crackles when it rains

I tried my landline phone in another socket at another location and found there was no fault with my landline, and informed "no fault up to the main outside socket" by BT.I also unplugged the connections and also the lower half of the main socket and just put in the landline jackpoint direct ( where it still is ).

I had to endure nearly two months of crackling noise on my line then HEY PRESTO it disappeared.

Alas yesterday the "noise / crackling" returned after some 10 weeks and I'm back where I was..

Does weather play a part in the quality of the line. I ask because I'm rural and the 1st winter of 2011/ 2012 had hardly any rain. whilst this winter 2012 /13 had a lot of rain and the problem started in January and went through to March. The past few days has seen rain and it seems more than a coincidence..

As mentioned my line has been normal before January and since it miraculously seemed to cure itself.
