I live in a small city where nothing ever happens, so when I heard there was a "Paranormal Group" doing sessions to talk with ghosts I was interested in attending one of the sessions. After asking a few people I was invited.
First of all, they told me some background information of the group: the majority of the members were people who lost their sons and daughters, brothers, sisters, parents, etc. and they were trying to get in contact with them in order to get some relieve and comfort, so this person (the one who invited me) told me that since I was skeptic, I needed to be respectful with these people and their conclusions. So I did.
So, that night I saw for the first time a Ghostbox. I think it was not a commercial release of it, it looked more like a hacked radioshack radio, but it provided mostly white noise, not chunks or pieces of radio-talk shows or anything like that.
At the beggining, of course, I was expecting voices or similar but in the first 10 minutes nothing happened. They were asking questions, talking, but no answer. Suddenly a voice replied. It was a female voice, after that a male voice said "dieciseis" (sixteen), which I think it was the answer of a question someone asked. After that, the voices were saying other things, mostly non-sense (in my opinion) because their utterances were not connected with the questions they were asking.
After 10 minutes more, a male, deep voice took control of the conversation. His name was Pedro and he was talking in an audible and pretty clear spanish. Everybody was asking questions and this voice was answering them, although some of his answers (at least for me) didn't quite sound like the normal spanish phonetic, it was like, something very similar to what we believed the answer was but not accurate. I was thinking "well, there's a man with a walkie talkie-radio-something, probably outside or something, trying to sell me this" until a person from the group told me "Do you want to ask a question?".
Well, at first I was like "I just came here to watch" but then I figured out that none saw my t-shirt under my jacket so I thought it was clever to ask this, so I asked to the spirit "Pedro, do you know which colour my t-shirt is? Suddenly a different voice said "Amarillo" (yellow). It wasn't Pedro, it was a younger voice.
Of course, I almost shat my pants. I wonder how they could have guessed that, so I thought that maybe it was just luck. I don't think they took my question seriously (the group) since they were asking specific questions about their beloved ones, so I thought it was better to ask something related with my own family or friends that are not longer here. So I was prepared to ask about a friend of mine that past away in 2001 and a voice said "Martin está bien" (Martin is okay). I was shocked. Seriously shocked. The rest of the evening was a back and forth of non-sense and direct replies. I remained in silence thinking about how these things are even possible.
In conclusion, to be honest, it could have been a trick, a fake, an hoax but I got a direct reply stating the colour of my t-shirt and information about my friend when I didn't even say his name. So I don't know, what do you think about it? Can we consider ghostboxes something serious for investigation?
