paranormal investigation equipment sbox ghost scanner fm am

Ghost Box

This piece of ghost hunting equipment is very fascinating and quite creepy to be honest. When sitting in a dark room in an abandoned 1800’s hotel hearing voices come through a machine does give you chills!

The ‘Ghost Box’ is a radio frequency sweep scanner, which generates white noise from existing FM and AM bands. This is suggested by professionals, that the white noise gives spirits enough energy to communicate back to us. When this happens you will words/voices coming through the static in the attempt of ghost communication. With this piece of paranormal investigation equipment, it will record your ghost box sessions for instant playback. Or you can choose to store the session on a SD card for later inspection. This particular ‘SBox Ghost Scanner + Recorder’ will also allow you to have a normal EVP session without the radio sweep. So it’s a 2in1 piece of ghost hunting equipment!

(I don’t think the EVP recording on this device will be as professional as the ‘Olympus EVP Recorder’ but it will still do a decent job and well worth the price)

More special features include:

  • Adjustable Sweep Speed Control
  • Bluetooth Connection for Use as a Wireless Speaker
  • Rechargeable Battery and Long Life
  • Loud, Amplified Speaker (10x power) and Headphone Port
  • Built-in Flashlight (Very impressive)
  • Downloadable & updatable software
