Cordless phones use radio waves to communicate between the base and the handset. If you neighbor's phone happens to use the same frequency/channel at the same time there could be a connection between both conversations. It happened more often with older models, but shouldn't happen with models made in recent years. People with radio scanners may be able to monitor the frequencies that some cordless phones use, but that too is less likely to happen with newer cordless systems.

Can you record a conversation with a cop without them knowing and use it in your defense?

First, you cannot record conversations over the phone, most states deem it a felony. However, if they are out in public or just 'outside" yes, you can as anyone could hear the conversation, therefore there is no expectation of privacy.Another View: Use caution in following the advice of the first answer. Many states apply the same criteria to face-to-face recorded conversations as they do to phone conversations. It will depend on your state laws and, in the case of interstate phone conversations, what the state law of the out-of-state party may be.
