Added DiffLines:

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry'' Diddy and Funky are in Funky's biplane and are told by DK over the radio NOT to read a certain piece of paper that has a terrible spell on it. Unfortunately due to static the "not" part gets cut out of the message.

* In Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy, a Grebulon ship (which is on an exceptionally long-haul flight across the galaxy and whose crewmembers are in stasis) suffers this with their orders after an asteroid ripped through their ship which destroyed the system which held their identites and their mission plan. The only instructions they end up with are to land a safe distance from something and monitor it.

* ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'' is loaded with this. For about three-quarters of the game, Jet's receiving incomplete, cryptic, and static-filled transmissions from Ma3a or "Guest." In "Guest's" case [[spoiler: it turns out Alan is making do with an old arcade game and junk from the storage closet he's locked in]]. Unfortunately, the poor communication ''does'' kill [[spoiler: Alan doesn't realize it's his son that's trying to help Ma3a]] and Jet doesn't get the message [[spoiler: ''not'' to compile the Tron Legacy ([[Film/TronLegacy no relation]]) code]] until it is ''way'' too late.

* In this ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' [[http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2004-08-09/ strip]], the PointyHairedBoss calls Dilbert and says "Go through my desk and look up the billing codes". Due to poor cell phone reception in the Boss's area, what Dilbert hears is "Go throw my desk off the building." Due to the fact that nobody likes the boss, Dilbert and Alice do just that [[http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2004-08-10/ the next strip]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/MassEffectEndOfDays'', during the first contact with Citadel races, the first thing the Alliance does upon emerging from the Relay is isolate the present Council ships just in case. All the Council receives is a barely discernible image of a 5 km ship outside the windows.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'': Deliberately invoked by Peter in one strip. He phones his mother and asks "Would it be alright if I...saved for college?" with a suspiciously long pause in the middle. After his mother agrees, he is shown with a Playstation and explaining to his friend Steve that he'll claim he actually asked "Would it be alright if I buy a Playstation with the money I saved for college?" but the signal on his crappy phone dropped out partway through. That way, his mother will also buy him a new cellphone.
