Orders are coming in now for the new FCD Ghost Box -up to No.6 with numbers 2-4 ready to post out soon. I am working on an alternative version which will allow AM and FM sweeps -this should be avialble in about a month. The present version only allows FM -this will still be available, but the AM-FM version will be slightly dearer to pay for the necessary added parts. Plus I have added a better quality antenna and fitment to the existing FCD Ghost Box (all orders will have this and it is still detacheable, so you can use the box with or without an antenna if you wish to).
Making no promises as I am pretty busy on the builds, but I hope to be able to find some free time this weekend to video a demo of the FCD Ghost box working alongside the FCD Ghost Box Intention Device. I have run some test sessions in the last week with this and there does seem to be a difference in responses when the Intention Device is used in combination. Even in the white noise background, I could hear distant ‘voices’ that seemed to be running alongside the stop-start of the radio sweep. These need recording and analysing further to determine what is being said and a possible source for them?
Interesting times here at FCD.
It’s here! The FCD Ghost Box…called simply the…FCD GHOST BOX!
AVAILABLE TO ORDER FROM THE WEBSITE STORE NOW…..
This is the latest ghost box from FCD in 2019 – designed to be taken out into the field and haunted locations on paranormal and ghost hunting investigations.
The ghost box is a tough and sturdy unit that has been built with quality parts for long lasting and easy operation.
As with all FCD boxes it has been priced at an affordable level without compromising on the quality, looks, operation and feel of the unit. The sound output is loud and clear with an adjustable sweep speed, 10W loudspeaker driver and metal speaker grille protector.
It has the option to add reverb effects (included) to the output sound and offers an output socket for recording results to a computer or hand-held recorder with a 3.5mm input.
The unit’s amplifier system is powered by two 9V PP3 batteries with an additional 2 x AAA batteries for the radio circuit. All batteries are housed in holders on the rear of the box for fast replacement.
There is the option to use a short plug in antenna or a long one with the unit – this helps with locations where radio signals may be weaker or stronger – and the radio signal is passed through the unique FCD crystal booster antenna box which is situated on the back of the box.

The FCD Ghost Box is now complete and testing has been done. It sounds loud, clear and I am very happy with it so far.

Hope you can join me on facebook live then and the podcast will be available here on the FCD website shortly afterwards.
A NEW DIRECTION FOR 2019 – OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW!
Last year, 2018 was without doubt a fantastic year for FCD Ghost Boxes due to a number of very sucessful designs and unique ghost box /portals. Amongst these was the FCD MK4 probably the UK’s fastest and largest selling ghost box which sold over 600 units. It was a simple yet effective box and included a reverb effect, all at a very affordable price.
Towards the end of 2018 I decided to look at new designs and sought to build a new box, the Vortex- which would have an adjustable sweep control. My first intentions were to house this in wooden cases, but this proved to be too expensive (and as it has always been the the ethos that FCD Ghost boxes should be good quality but affordable), so a new direction had to be taken on any future builds into 2019 in order to achieve this.
So we move on (as ever trying to improve and keep the cost down) so that the FCD brand of ghost boxes can continue in a way which has enabled an evolution towards a box /portal which is more sturdy, more hard wearing plastic case, tough to take any knocks out on investigations, weather resistant, easier to operate and incorporating that essential continous and adjustable linear sweep for a clearer sound.
So, a new model has been born as we start 2019. Simply called the ‘FCD Ghost Box’ -this unit will be once more available to order at a very affordable price. Lauch date and details coming soon.
