Paranormal investigator Christopher Moon, the founder of Haunted Times Magazine, discussed 'Frank's Box,' also known as the telephone to the dead. The box, composed of used parts from various electronic devices, was originally housed in an old hollowed-out computer tower, said Moon, who has used the apparatus at a number of haunted sites, such as the Lizzie Borden House (now a B & B!) and the Mason House Inn.
Frank's Box allows for two-way communication with the other side, in a way that is more interactive than typical EVP, Moon explained. Two recordings were played on the show (additional clips are posted here). He claimed he was able to communicate with Thomas Edison's co-workers (Edison never finished the spirit contact machine he was said to be working on).
Towards the end of the third hour, Frank, the inventor of the box, joined the show to describe his invention. To quote from his website, "the system consists of a random voltage generator, which is used to tune an AM receiver module rapidly. The audio from the tuner (raw audio) is amplified and fed to an echo chamber, where the spirits manipulate it to form their voices." Moon noted that Frank has been able to make each successive box smaller in size and that Frank has had success contacting "transdimensional beings."
Global Warming Commentary
First hour guest, science writer and Newsmax columnist Lowell Ponte offered commentary on global warming, which he does not view as being associated with human-contributed C02 emissions. He argued that the issue has become overly politicized, and that Al Gore's film An Inconvenient Truth is laden with errors.
