Which is the best ghost box?

So you want to communicate with ghosts… the number one tool for doing so is a Ghost Box. It’s a modified radio that scans through all the radio stations without stopping. You will hear odd radio stations, music and white noise. But what you are really looking out for is replies from the spirits hidden in the white noise.

Which one do I need?

There are many ghost boxes to choose from, all ranging in price and functionality. The SBox ghost box, for example, has a record feature. Which none of the others have. You can record your spirit box session or use it to record EVP’s.

It’s best to use it in a known haunted area. This is because your communicated with spirits and the paranormal, and if it’s not a haunted place, you will not receive any responses.

  • Designed specifically for communication

  • Scans forward and backwards through stations
  • Scanning speed can be increased and decreased

What about phone apps?

There are many free apps on the Google Play Store and Apple Store, all claiming to do the same. They don’t actually scan through radio stations, they usually play snippets of pre-recorded music, audio and sound. So it’s not technically the same, there is no harm trying them if they are free to download.

Can spirits interfere?

Yes, they can! They can interfere with digital or electronics devices. Regardless of what version or model it is. They can affect the display, drain the batteries, affect its services, stop the radio scan search. As well as communicate with you through it.

What about a dual scan search?

The majority just have a single scanner, it’s only the SB11 which has the dual scan. If you’re new to paranormal, we would recommend a single scan mode, as it’s simpler to use.

The dual scan can be challenging to hear as you have two sets of white noise, musical and radio coming through. The majority of people with the SB11 use it in single mode once they have tried the dual scan.
