5. Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC)
“For the first time in 8,000 years of
recorded history, it can now be said with certainty that
our mind, memory, personality and soul will survive physical
Since about 1980 psychic researchers have claimed that
contact with people who have died has also been made via
radio, over telephones, on television, on answering and
fax machines and computers.
This more extended and recent voice contact is called Instrumental
Transcommunication (ITC) or Extended ITC or even Trans-dimensional
Communication. It is highly evidential in that the contact
is repeatable, is occurring in laboratories throughout the
world, and is being subjected to close scientific scrutiny.
According to Mark Macy, Convenor of the American Continuing
Life Research Foundation and a leading researcher in this
The research laboratories in Europe are
reporting extended, two-way communication with spirit
colleagues almost daily, receiving wide-ranging information
through telephone answering machines, radios and computer
They are receiving video images on their television sets
showing people and places in the spirit worlds... As a result,
for the first time in history, we are being shown direct
physical evidence of what life is really like after we shed
the physical body (Continuing Life Research, Contact, Volume
A thirteen minute phone call
During 1994 ITC experimenters in Luxembourg, Germany, Brazil,
Sweden, China and Japan received paranormal telephone calls
from Dr Konstantin Raudive (pictured at left) the famous
pioneer researcher of EVP who died in 1976 (Kubris and Macy
The report stated that these calls were tape recorded and
analyzed by voice experts. The calls have continued since
then and one two-way taped conversation in 1996 between
Dr Konstantin Raudive and Mark Macy lasted for thirteen
minutes (Continuing Life Research video—ITC Today
Challenging the ‘boggle threshold’
According to Mark Macy’s World ITC website http://www.worlditc.org/
scientists working for the International Network for Instrumental
Transcommunication (INIT) received from the afterlife:
• pictures of people and places in the afterlife
on television that either appeared clearly on the screen
and remained for at least several frames, or which built
up steadily into a reasonably clear picture over multiple
• text and/or picture files from people in the afterlife
which appeared in computer memory or were planted on disk
or similar recordable media
• text and/or images of people and places in the
afterlife by way of fax messages.
Such contacts, which were received by European experimenters
over a 10-year period and by researchers worldwide from
1995 through 1997, are giving modern researchers a view
of unprecedented clarity into life after death.
The evidence collected by this now extensive group of reliable
witnesses—including reputable scientists, physicists,
engineers, electronic technicians, doctors, professors,
administrators, clergymen, successful businessmen—is
undeniably convincing to those who systematically investigate
the EVP and ITC. The consistency of the evidence from different
parts of the world is overwhelming.
The Brazilian team
One of the leading researchers in this field today is Sonia
Rinaldi (pictured left) who leads the biggest ITC-association
in Brazil, with nearly 700 members. She recently announced
new contacts received via computer, answering machine, telephone
and video camera.
At public meetings in Brazil and in the United States large
numbers of members and visitors were able to receive direct
answers from loved ones in the spirit world.
Up to date information on her research can be read in English
on her website ANT Associacao Nacional de Transcomunicadores
Her work is based on scientific control and her site contains
scientific declarations issued by the most respected University
in Brazil, USP?Universidade de São Paulo.
How it all started
In America the pioneers of this work were George Meek and
William O'Neil who worked to establish Spiricom, a two-way
communication system between this dimension and the afterlife,
using more sophisticated equipment than that used in the
EVP research. O'Neil was a gifted medium who was able to
see and communicate with two scientists working from the
afterlife. Using a modified side-band radio the voice of
'dead' scientists were captured on tape in intelligent and
The reader is referred to a book written by John G. Fuller
called The Ghost of 29 Megacycles (1981). This
351 page book describes in detail the very highly credible
research of George Meek and the evidence he produced to
show that life goes on after we die. It is very highly recommended
to the serious seeker.
Radio Luxembourg experiments
In West Germany Hans-Otto Koenig, an electronics and acoustics
expert, developed sophisticated electronic equipment using
'extremely low beat frequency oscillators, ultraviolet and
infra-red lights.' On the 15th January, 1983 he was invited
to appear on Europe's biggest radio station, Radio Luxembourg.
At that time it had a listening audience of millions across
Europe. Koenig was asked to give a live radio demonstration
of his newly developed ultrasound technique of conversing
two-way with those who had died.
Koenig installed his equipment under the watchful eyes
of the Radio's own engineers and the presenter of the program,
Herr Rainer Holbe. One of the Radio's staff asked if a voice
could come through in direct response to his requests. Almost
immediately a voice replied:
'We hear your voice' and 'Otto Koenig makes wireless
with the dead' (Fuller 1981:339).
Other questions were asked. But then announcer Holbe, shaken
by what he and everybody else had heard, stated:
I tell you, dear listeners of Radio Luxembourg, and I
swear by the life of my children, that nothing has been
manipulated. There are no tricks. It is a voice, and we
do not know from where it comes (Fuller 1981:339).
The station issued an official statement afterwards that
every step of the program was carefully supervised. The
staff and engineers were convinced that the voices were
paranormal (Fuller 1981:339).
Naturally enough, more intensive public work was done by
Koenig. Other experiments were carried out with Radio Luxembourg
with similar success (Fuller 1981:339). One particular voice
came through, stating, 'I am Raudive'. The significance
of this is that when Dr Raudive was himself alive he had
written the book Breakthrough referred to earlier in which
he had given full details about his own experiments with
the EVP—more than 72,000 voices from those who had
'died' were recorded.
Black and white television pictures
In the 1980s researchers in various countries were able
to receive pictures of their ‘dead’ loved ones
on their television screens. In 1985 Klaus Schreiber in
West Germany devised a way to get pictures on television
tubes of persons who had died (see picture above). The tubes
used 'an opto-electronic feedback system'. There was positive
identification, in many cases by accompanying audio communication,
including audio-video contact with deceased family members.
Schreiber’s work was closely supervised by experienced
investigators, Professor Senkowski and the formerly skeptical
Rainer Holbe of Radio Luxembourg, both of whom knew Schreiber
personally and were satisfied that his results were genuine
(Holbe 1987; Fontana 2005:379).
At the same time in Luxembourg Maggy and Jules Harsch-Fischbach
received images on a television screen after previously
being told to expect them in an ITC audio communication.
Present were investigators Professor and Mrs Senkowski,
Professor Resch and George Meek. These images were the same
quality as those recorded by Schreiber (Fontana 2005: 379).
A husband and wife couple working in Luxembourg between
1985 and 1988 with helpers from the afterlife, developed
two electronic systems which became significantly more reliable
and repeatable than the systems developed earlier. Jules
and Maggie Harsch-Fischbach in 1987 claimed to have established
computer contact which allowed submission of technical questions
to beings in the afterlife with high speed print-out of
the carefully considered replies. Also in 1987 they received
TV picture sequences of good quality in the presence of
experienced investigators (Locher and Harsch-Fischbach 1997).
By 1993 the research team in the afterlife was able to
access the hard drives of computers and leave detailed,
computer-scanned images as well as several pages of text.
The computer-scanned images were far more detailed and less
subject to distortion than the video images. Researchers
in our dimension were able to direct questions to their
counterparts in the afterlife dimension and receive answers
by telephone, radio, TV, computer, or fax (Kubris and Macy
1995:14; Locher and Harsch-Fischbach 1997).
The first color television picture of a spirit entity was
reported in October 1995 in association with a computer
contact, when a German researcher, Aldof Homes, awoke with
a compelling urge to try an experiment with his color TV
set. Accustomed to receiving paranormal video images on
his monochrome TV set, but only after being notified in
advance by phone by his spirit colleagues, the researcher
this time just turned on his color set and trained his camcorder
on the picture tube. At that instant, an image of Swedish
Friedrich Juergenson, the early EVP experimenter, deceased
since 1987, appeared on the screen and remained there for
Hearing a loud, cracking noise coming from the next room,
the researcher ultimately got up to investigate after unsuccessfully
attempting voice contact with the televised image on his
set. Upon entering the next room, he discovered his computer
had been switched on paranormally and on the screen he found
a typed message to him ´ “This is Friedel from
Sweden. I am sending you a self-portrait…” (Mark
Marcello Bacci’s Voices
Today Marcello Bacci can be considered one of the leading
researchers into Instrumental Transcommunication. For 35
years he has been receiving paranormal voices on a regular
basis in his laboratory in Grosseto, Italy.
Bacci uses an old valve radio tuned to white noise in the
short wave band. For many years, he has been holding sessions
on Friday nights with parents who have lost deceased sons
or daughters who claim to be able to hear the voices of
their deceased children. Many books have already been written
about his work, and Bacci today continues his research using
his old valve radio.
Many researchers have visited Bacci’s laboratory to
test the phenomenon of the Bacci voices. Physicist Prof.
Salvatore Mario Festa, worked with Bacci analysing the voice
weekly for six years. Here is part of a report he wrote
for world ITC:
The phenomenon of the voices of Bacci
is authentic, there is no trick of any sort! After approximately
30 minutes of waiting, during which Marcello moves the
tuning knob between 7 and 9 MHz looking for a zone of
white noise, the silence is broken by Marcello’s
voice announcing that “he hears Them”. Immediately
after a something sensational happens: in the zone of
white noise above mentioned, all radio signals stop and
one, predominant, noise takes over. This sound is similar
to the noise of the wind. Marcello then talks to the radio
and calls out “FRIENDS” we are here, can you
please make yourselves heard? And them, who are waiting
for nothing else, they do exactly that and with such determination!
I am not going to run through what happened thereafter,
because all the experts are well familiar with what happens:
clear and convincing messages are heard, messages filled
with esoteric content and answers more or less in line
with the questions asked. What can be said about the voices
of the “youngsters”, who always generate the
most extraordinary emotions amongst those present? When
the “youngsters” talk, a heart warming and
all embracing atmosphere is created in the room.
Technical verifications have been carried out in order
to verify the paranormal nature of the phenomenon over more
than thirty years. Professional independent researchers,
such as Daniele Gullà, Dr. Marabini, Paolo Presi
among others have investigated the voices and analysed them
using the most sophisticated electronic equipment.
The voices are received only when the experiment is personally
performed by Bacci, which means that a certain level of
mediumship in the experimenter is needed. A similar effect
was noted in the experiments carried out in the 1980s by
William O’Neill with the Spiricom device.
International Conferences on ITC
The First International Conference on "Current
Research into Survival of Physical Death, with Special Reference
to Instrumental Transcommunication", was held by the
ITC Journal in Vigo, Spain in April 2004. The Proceedings
are available in the form of a soft-covered book of 192
pages, and contain copies of all the 14 papers delivered
at the Conference. The papers are in either English or Spanish
(with one paper in French).
A second International Conference “Current Research
into Survival of Physical Death with Special Reference to
ITC”, was held in Vigo, Spain, on the 28th to the
30th April 2006. It featured presentations by a number of
leading European and US authorities on ITC, such as Daniele
Gullà, Dr. Sinesio Darnell, Hans-Otto König,
Dr. Anabela Cardoso, Professor Ernst Senkowski, Professor
Mario Festa, and Sylvia Hart-Wright. Also included were
contributions on other aspects of research into survival
from Professor David Fontana, Dr. Enrico Marabini, Mario
Varvoglis, Dr. Alexander Trofimov, Dr. Walter von Lucadou,
Jean Pierre Girard, and Dr. Peter Fenwick.
Can anyone make contact using ITC?
While there are literally tens of thousands of experimenters
making contact through Electronic Voice Phenomena (using
tape-recorders) there are only a handful of experimenters
making contact through Instrumental Transcommunication.
According to those working in the field, this is because
ITC can only work with the co-operation of two teams of
dedicated scientists, one on Earth and one on the spiritside.
Sonia Rinaldi writes in Associacao Nacional de Transcomunicadores
that her team worked unsuccessfully for three years until
they were able to attract the energies of a group of scientists
in the spirit world led by Dr. Roberto Landell de Moura,
an early pioneer of radio. The European group work with
a highly organized sending station in the spirit world called
The importance of resonance
All of the experimenters working in ITC attest to the importance
of harmony, unity, absence of ego and altruistic motive
as well as a passionate desire for contact and a constant,
favorable holding in thought of a deceased person with whom
there is a strong emotional attachment.
Mark Macy has been a key figure in world ITC, documenting
the results of the most prolific receivers of ITC contacts,
organizing annual research seminars on both sides of the
Atlantic and obtaining the first significant ITC contact
in the United States. He claims to have experienced miracles
in his lab, including color images of spirit beings on a
reliable basis and steady improvement of radio contacts.
