EVP/Voice using Ghost Box on latest investigation

by on Jan.26, 2010, under Evidence, Investigations

So Tortured Souls Investigations out of Missoula Montana was able to investigate a legendary house with a interesting and disturbing history. We came into this location with incredibly high hopes. The house was beautifully restored and was surprised that there has been very little activity since the owners purchased and restored the house a few years ago. One of the things they did was create a small ‘spirit house’ to give a home to the potentially restless spirits there. Maybe it worked.

This night we thought we would give my Shack Hack Ghost Box another try. I’m still really on the fence with this device and technique, but I wanted to stay open with it. We did happen to hear a voice that caught our attention. Please view the video below:

The flashing light in the video is a IR strobe beacon I created. Basically, it’s a bike light. I removed the white LEDs and replaced them with IR LEDs.

To see additional footage (some orbs were captured with a video camera), please check out the Tortured Souls Investigation’s YouTube Channel.

Radio Shack Hack Ghost Box 12-469

by on Jan.25, 2010, under Equipment

I mentioned this a while back that I was going to make a modification to the Radio Shack Pocket Radio (#12-469) to allow it to sweep uninterrupted through the AM or FM bands. This can be used in conjunction with EVP sessions. Personally, I’m not sold on this technique, but wanted to give it a shot regardless.

Here is the radio you need. I’ve heard they’re not selling this anymore? If this is true, you can many tutorials on other various Shack hack ghost boxes types. The concept is the same for all, removing the ‘mute’ pin.

Okay, here is where I add my standard disclaimer. I’m not responsible for any injury or loss of equipment when attempting this modification. Do this at your own risk!

The first step is to remove the three screws from the rear including the one in the battery compartment.

Once you’ve removed the screws you’ll see the PCB (Printed Circuit Board).

Now this circuit board is attached to another circuit board below it. You’ll need to remove two more screws that connect the circuit boards to each other. They’re connected with a set of connector pins. You’ll be able to separate the circuit boards, but be careful!

Now flip the circuit board you removed over and you’ll see the series of pins. They’re all labeled, and what you need to do is to clip the MUTE pin. Triple check that you’ve identified the correct pin.

Now with a pair of wire cutters clip the pin as close to the circuit board as possible. I circled the pin for reference.

What this will do is prevent the radio to lock on a channel during scanning mode. Now reverse the steps, gently reattach the circuit board to the other. Screw in the two screws securing the circuit board. Attach the cover and screw in the three screws. To test, add batteries and hold down the center button. The channels should begin scan, but never stop.

I also found this video showing the same unit I used.

Let me know how it goes!
