I hear pulses too and I have a 2.4 spread spectrum phone.

My radio has a LCD type S-meter which responds quickly to signal changes.
If I set the radio to fast AGC, the pulses are very evident.

My (stupid) question is. Does the phone transmit even when it is on-hook or 
do I have to unplug the base unit? Your post seems to say I must unplug it. 
I'm not sure I am hearing my phone or a neighbors.

thanks, ron w8gus.
