So if you are picking him up, go ask him about it. He'll be able to sort out what's going on and fix it. As a long time ham I've had two complaints, both about cheap cordless phones.

And I had a neighbor that had a microwave oven that splattered RF everywhere. It was older and cheaply made. I poked at it to see if there was an easy fix. Nope, so I just bought them a new one.

Hams work very hard to not be a radio nuisance.

If it's audible in headphones I suspect that the fix would involve soldering HF bypass capacitors at the inputs of the onboard headphone amplifier. Doable, but will the owner agree to this? Well... ;)
