2005 - 2014 Mike's Paranormal Past - Overview Summary



It all began in 2005-2006 timeframe when I became interested in the findings of a number of people with regard to reported spirit voices recorded on tape recorders. I began to investigate the devices they used and what it was they were recording.
*** Wire recorders, reel to reel tape recorders, Spiricom Device, Frank's Box, Raudiva Non microphone diode devices.

2006 - 2007 I began designing some of the type devices I was reading about. I called them Mike's Paranormal Prototypes. At that time I used the website UFOGeek.com (which has since been archived).

Overview - I produced devices and posted the first videos on Youtube showing how to create DIY ghost boxes (Shack Hack, Spirit Box). See below details ***

2007 - *** I devised a hack for a Radio Shack model 12-470 radio (Shack Hack), making it a Ghost Box. This was a way for everyone to have such a paranormal investigation tool of this kind. Before this (12-469 & 12-470) only the Frank's Box and similar were available, for very few to use. Now, this opened the door for a worldwide effort for people to investigate the paranormal on their own, using the Shack Hack radios.

     - *** I then produced the very first videos on Youtube showing the DIY hacks of both the 12-469 & 12-470 (Shack Hacks). These videos went viral, and thousands of Hack Shacks were made by people all around the world. Radio Shack soon began to run out of these radios, as people bought them to make these paranormal devices.

NOTE 1: By doing this I enabled thousands, maybe tens of thousands to get deeper into the paranormal.

NOTE 2: After these 12-469, 12-470 radios eventually became almost impossible to find, companies began producing similar type devices, already modified for paranormal investigation. These devices are still sold today, under various names.

NOTE 3: After the 12-469 & 12-470 Shack Hack, others found different ways to modify other off the shelf model radios to perform like a Shack Hack.


Also in 2007 - I began doing more paranormal investigations, alone of with different groups. (Details further below)


2008-2009 More paranormal investigations, radio shows, podcasts, Youtube videos produced.

- I was creating numerous type prototype electronic devices for paranormal investigation. I then created an on-line catalog of my Mike's Paranormal Prototypes, showing others what I created. Since few were on the market at that time, many took interest in my devices. 

- *** The Ghost Hunters International team, (a TV show about the paranormal) contacted me a number of times, asking if they could use my prototype devices on their investigations. I did not let them use them.

- *** The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO heard about my paranormal devices and invited me to test my paranormal prototype devices at their hotel. They allowed me to stay in their 'haunted' Room 401 free of charge. *** A well known Australian rock musician and actor Jon English - (deceased 2016) asked if he and Coralea could accompany me and Callea Seck (Stanley Hotel tour guide/para-investigator) on my Stanley Hotel investigation. They were staying in the most expensive room at the Stanley Hotel at the time.

Also 2008-2009 Began attending and leading drumming circles... new age and pagan type influences.

- *** Radio Shack Corporation (Tandy) attempted to sue me because of my wide spread information on how to use their radios in a negative way.
