The Next Big Wave For Ham Radio? DXing The Dead?

Tongue planted firmly (so firmly it's beginning to hurt) in cheek:

Yes, you too, with basic modification of an AM or FM (depending on the educational level of the departed I gather) radio can receive messages from your departed loved ones! 
Apparently, all that is required is to have a radio with scan capability which you modify by disabling the audio mute during scan, and this is where the messages from the dead ..., oh for heaven's sake! 

I mean, come on! This is like inter-dimensional DX or something. Dead DX.
  • "Uh, yes, I'm about 15 dead QSOs from getting my DDXCC certficate ...", 
  • "Did you hear about the DDXpedition to Hades next weekend?", 
  • "We've found that the really, really old boatanchors, if they have their modulating tubes dipped in wax, really have much better selectivity inter-dimensionally, I mean you'd really like to talk to your Aunt Betty, right, not your neighbor's?"      
Anyone with half a brain knows this isn't going to work on AM or FM broadcast bands. Get real! This technique could only have a chance of success on HF! ... or 6 meters during the off-season. 

Well, I may be over-simplyfing, of course. If you want all the ethereal details I guess you're going to have to buy their book, available at any of the finer spookstores around town, and for only $15.95! Maybe you can find an MP3 version on Pirate Bay. :)

73!

  1. It seems to me the bottom line is.....we buy the book they get rich and we are just a bit poorer.

  2. Hi Casey, I've sen a documentary regarding this on TV. With recorded sound of course. It's incredible what they come up with. And of course you need to believe in it and have a lot of fantasy. 73, Bas

    1. It's nice to know that the dead are keeping up with technology even if they are only a few decades behind. :)
