Ghost Adventures Voice Box ???
#21
The idea of this is very intriguing. I'm wondering if simply purchasing an analog TV would be sufficient considering antenna broadband is no more, and if your television is not digital, all you'll get is that constant fuzz. If spirits are able to manipulate energy in the form of sound, or channeling it through electronics, then any "white noise" should be a decent catalyst.

The def. of white noise is: –noun
1.
Also called white sound. a steady, unvarying, unobtrusive sound, as an electronically produced drone or the sound of rain, used to mask or obliterate unwanted sounds.

Any constant noise, in this case, would be considered white noise. The concept of creating something like this is very interesting, and if white noise is as such, then an analog tv producing nothing but a rush of static and fuzz should be ideal. For added insurance, you can disconnect the antennas.

I am, however, against using any sort of radio device as radio waves are very widely broadcasted. As someone said earlier, anything can interfere with radio waves.

There are ongoing investigations isolating devices in a faraday cage, thwe cage can act as a screen for some of the incoming stuff, thus filtering out the interference.
I would not trust anything that uses random frequency modulation, as it can easily pick up random chatter from radio programmes.
The best option for this type of EVP experiment, is to get a pure white noise generator, and link this to you recording equipment.

There are too many "off the shelf: items aimed at investigators, often priced at ridiculous levels. Have a good root about on the internet, you can often find sites that will show you how to build your own gear, at a fraction of the cost.

Our team has been testing the Radio Shack Hack version for more then a year now... You noticed I said "testing". Nothing special about it, all it does it continuously scans in FM/AM. We use it only in a testing environment never ever with a client. We treat it like an EVP session with strict questions and max 6/8 minutes. The reason for this is you read way too much in it and listening to the recording afterward is hell. Last time we used it we asked can you count backwards from 10. It SOUNDED like it was counting down then paused then continued in French, it skipped numbers and did not finish. It is way too useless to use in any investigation and it just promotes confusion when dealing with clients. Does it work? A definite maybe... It is interesting and that is all it is...

When I was just a kid, I had a radio that could pickup AM and FM..., Oh, it could also be tuned to pick up the audio from some TV station(s). If I knew what was going to be on, I'd just listen to the radio. That's it. I think it was on a UHF band.

Just 10 years ago I had an RCA remote control TV. It was acting up so I opened it and using what little I knew about, I discovered my TV also had a tuner that could pickup radio signals in FM and AM. They make one tuner/processor capable of multiple tasks, and put them in various models, only you don't know it exists, and you never get access to these other functions..., that will cost you more. It is more economical to the manufacturer to adopt this practice, because you only have to produce one processor that can be used in multiple models.

One thing that I don't think was mentioned is this was originally designed to communicate with ufo's. It didn't work and paranormal popularity was growing so he jumped on that band wagon. Now Frank never did make them to get rich. It was originally designed to be used hooked up with a white noise generator and three or more boxes. No one does this, it was originally supposed to be extremely complicated, now people go out an pick up a $20.00 radio shack radio and think its the same thing.

We have one guy that for $200-500. will use it to talk to your lost loved ones of course you can't hear them, he has to tell you what they say. Of course they all get great news.

Now lets get back to the designer, while intelligent enough to build this here is one of his nick names he uses. I use the name “purple alien girl” cuz “they” claim I’m their long lost Purple Princess from some other planet. The only actual voice I heard in my head was “Kiera(key-ra), it’s time to come home”, the name of the Princess.

So like anything else in the paranormal field if you believe you hear voices your brain will create them.
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

Really, about the UFO thing? Very interesting, I need to do some research.

And yes, I'm afraid these things rely on pareidolia, or the audio version of it, of us detecting non-existent significant patterns in randomness. Except for those that are actually programmed to emit actual words, like "door" and such. I'm not sure what principle those work on - I mean I'm sure it's the same principle but I don't know what the algorithm is or how they decided this particular hiccup should mean "fireplace" and this one should mean "strangle". Those are the really hokey ones - the Frank's Boxes you can at least give a pass as human suggestibility.
Ouija Use 1992-1996: 1.5 sess./day @45 min./sess. (1.13h) @83.4 days/yr @4 yrs
Group: 500.6 sess. = 375.4 hrs/4 yrs
Personal Partic.: 67% = 335.4 sess. = 251.5 hrs/4 yrs
Current Conclusion: Ideomotor effect and suggestibility

I was wondering how many people watched ghost adventures last night Friday 27th of July were they went to the home of a family who had lost there daughter in 2007, they were using a normal recorder and running it all day the dad had in a ear price so he new when his daughter was present. They actually played the daughters voicemail off of her cellphone so you could here her actual voice then they played the record MINGER they had captured .he had also designed a ghost box of his own which he used on the show. Now I want you to no I normally don't watch this show because I don't think they are genuine but this particular show gave me goose bumps you could here her clearly answer her mum and dad ......I wonder what you guys think or did you watch the show

Thought seeing many people still read this post is The designer of the original ghost box claimed it can take up to three years to train your mind to pick out the voices .... anyone got three extra years?

It is as bad as saying you have a dog trained to find ghosts. Digs and cars can be ultra sensitive to spirit activity but bringing a dog on an investigation makes me turn the tv off. Next someone will have a parrot on their shoulder claiming to speak to ghosts. Polly wants a cracker because I see a ghost....
