I was listening to a radio program and there was an interview going on over the phone between the anchor and the listener. But I heard a disturbing sound from the phone call and the anchor said,
"Well, it looks like your signal is being dropped out there."
Something like this... (My words here could be wrong! I just combined the words from my shredded memories.)
Then the phone call was recovering again, it seemed—but after a few seconds, the anchor decided to hang up the phone because the voice of the listener could no longer be heard. And the anchor used this kind of expression.
"I think I'm losing on your line. Unfortunately I have to hang up the phone, but I still want to hear your story, please give us text...."
...It was something like this.
I remember these expressions because I thought they were nice ones, which I haven't thought of before. But I couldn't remember the exact wording. I googled those expressions, and I realized that this kind of expression is very popular.
"Wi-Fi keeps dropping on my laptop."
But, I didn't find any matches when I searched for "signal is being dropped out" or "lose on someone's line".
Please help me recover my memory and identify the exact expression. Similar expressions would be greatly appreciated as well!!
FYI, the radio was ABC news Brisbane, Australia.
