To start this thread I would like to begin with a disclaimer:
DISCLAIMER: The following thread contains material that could potentially be hazardous to your mind, body, and soul. I am posting
this merely to share my findings in the research that I conducted. Paranormal investigation should never be attempted by any one that isn’t
thoroughly educated on the subject and the potential danger and repercussions of said paranormal investigations.
On that note, I like to think of myself as a pretty sound minded individual. People that I know personally would most likely agree. Throughout this
last week I decided to conduct my own personal paranormal investigation utilizing a device known as a Ghost Box. Based upon this ATS thread I happened
upon one evening while skimming the recent posts page
dead people talking on am/fm radio scanner??
After reading this thread and responding I was quite intrigued. My initial perception of what people were hearing was just random clips of voices and
sounds as they quickly scan past a frequency and their mind was just mistakenly or coincidentally perceiving what they thought were responses to there
conversation. So I wanted to see for myself if this was just people hearing coincidental snippets of random voices from scanning a radio frequency or
were these actual EVP’s of disembodied spirits.
For those not familiar with what this is, go to this youtube search query
Ghost Box Sessions
and watch a few of the videos, some are better than
others as far as quality goes but after you watch a few you'll get the gist of the EVP results this device is supposed to produce. Most of the
devices in these videos however are easy to build derivatives of the original Frank's Box
So I began:
Well, the only radio I have is an old-school AM/FM alarm clock radio with a dial to tune in radio stations. The Radio Shack ones in most of the videos
utilize digital electronic scanning which scan low to high, low to high (540AM to 1680AM then back to 540Am and so on). I thought ehhh maybe I can
match the speed at which they scan, I would just have to keep changing directions on the dial to continuously scan up and down the band like the Radio
Shack version ones do except mine would manually scan low to high, high to low (540AM to 1680AM then 1680AM back to 540AM and so on). It was a long
shot I thought, but figured why not, I wouldn’t be out anything but my time.
The dial has the circumference of approximately a Quarter ($.25) and the thickness is roughly the same as five Quarters stacked together. On my first
attempt I tried to scan up and down the AM frequency using only my thumb and forefinger. This method turned out to be entirely too tedious and
difficult to maintain a constant speed of scan. So I removed the dial, drilled a whole in the center and attached a small crank handle to it so that I
could easily turn the dial by turning the crank up and down the AM frequency. This was still tedious in of itself, but it was a little easier on the
wrist and unlike the electronic ghost boxes that scan at one speed I was able to manually control the speed of the scan. Through trial and error I
found a speed that produced amazing results.
I have recorded a total of 4 sessions. My initial sessions were rather crude in many respects. My audio settings didn't start out so great, more so,
the recording of my voice was overpowered by the ghost box’s output. The first few sessions were more or less trial and error to get the levels to
equally match so my conversation is difficult to ascertain. However, each session got increasingly better and by EVP Session 4 it was close to
perfectly leveled out. I recorded four sessions, in order: 2+mins, 14+mins, 8+mins, and 20mins exactly. I also cut snippets from different sessions
that were proof positive (to me anyway) that there were in fact clear and discernible disembodied voices being recorded, more so directly responding
I was in awe at how much contact I actually made and how busy this dimension is. My first "jaw dropping" moment was when I played back a portion of
a recording where I said “my name is David, if any spirits are here can you say my name?” Low and behold there it was, some male voice that I
didn't recognize said "David" (which is my first name). At this point, I was hooked! I was sure that this was not at all a coincidence and by no
means was I hearing what I wanted to hear. I noticed that there are a lot of spirits in a confused distressed state. I determined this was due to
either a suicide, or quick death. I heard one guy say "wounded". So I assume that most here don't realize they have passed away. Some seemed
content with where they were, and others, not so much. The guy that said "F^*& Youuuu" to me as I was saying “bye” and ending one of the early
sessions that made this fact quite evident (his accent was what I would deem to be a middle aged Puerto Rican guy from New York).
As I would hear specific responses to my inquiries I would zoom in on them in the audio editing software program that I use and isolate them down.
Surprisingly, what appeared as static, if zoomed in on certain sections to isolate what I deemed as a plausible EVP, I would then be able to hear even
more voices. When I was responded to, it was usually very quick, occasionally before I even finished the phrase or question interestingly enough. I
also asked a few visual questions and determined that they can see as well as hear. I ended up using a Microphone system that is USB and has an input
to run two separate MICs. One has a red band on it (which I had up to the speaker on the radio) and the other a blue one (which I have on a MIC stand
by my desk chair). I asked "can anyone tell me what color is on the MIC I am using?" The response was quick and correct.
Here is a transcript of the EVP’s I clipped from the full Session recordings in alphabetical order by file name, I eventually found that .wav files
were a little more audible than .mp3’s so some are .wav’s and some .mp3’s. Note: The time stamps are in the following format MM:SS.ms
