Hello everyone, 

I am new to the site but have been into this sort of stuff for a long time.

I was recently watching the documentary on the Scole group, which is full of compelling info, but the thing that really caught my interest was Edison's germanium device which is supposed to make communication with the spirit world much easier. After a little research I found the original schematics as well as the schematic of the device built for the Scole team. Skipping about a week of waiting for parts, I now have my own germanium device. I have so far only plugged it in once for a short time. I currently have the device running through a fairly powerful tube pre-amp and into a set of desk reference speakers. I'm just wondering if anyone else has built or used one of these devices before, hoping to chat with someone about different possible set-ups and such.


As soon as I figure out how to get a photo on here, I will.

Welcome aboard.  Jeff (our fearless Mayor) has a thread in the Spirit Communication forum on just this topic.  There are a couple of others going as well.  You can track about anything using the advanced search options and get around the Village without getting too lost.  Enjoy your time here.

This is similar to a Raudive detector.  Germainium is used since the barrier voltage of germanium is lower than silicon allowing it to serve as an RF detector for lower amplitude signals.  But in fact all it consists of is a radio detector which picks up all stations at one time because it lacks a tuned circuit to select only one.  Since Rf propagation is variable the strength of stations varies widely, a strong one will fade another may come in over it.


This causes a noise which consists mostly of just hash, but every once in a while certain sounds may overpower the background allowing for words or parts of words to come through.  Naturally it is not really clear which accounts for the pareidolia effect.  (Difficulty in understanding what was said and playing it repeatedly causes the mind to form what it determines is being said.)  The evidence of this is supported by the fact that usually no two people hear the same thing since everyone's mind works differently when arranging random patterns.


Besides, to date no one has explained how a ghost is able to create and modulate an RF carrier which is what these devices do.  Better to stick with standard audio / EVP.  using low noise amplifiers and detectors.  At least the pareidolia effect is minimized  unless of course you boost the gain up to where the electron noise becomes heard.  Then you are right back to the pareidolia issue.

Well thanks everyone!

I will look for the other threads on this subject.



So far there have been no "voices" of any kind, radio station or otherwise, so there isn't much threat of mistaking anything for a spirit. Besides the goal or grail I guess would be direct communication, not just random words. I'm also wondering, has anyone ever explained how any Spirit is making themselves heard on any type of equipment.. ever? And yes I understand the pareidolic effect, it is a problem with any kind of EVP. I appreciate the response, just hoping for hands on experience with this device.
