From 1979 to 1982, George Meek and Bill O'Neil developed a device they dubbed the “Spiricom” (short for spirit communication). The Spiricom was a set of 13 tone generators spanning the frequency range of the adult male voice.
The partnership developed, as George Meek was a self-made man who had become a budding spiritual explorer, and Bill O'Neil had quite capable psychic abilities. In fact, O’Neil claimed to have worked with spirits (deceased people) while developing the Spiricom with his pal, Meek.
Recordings of the Spiricom in action still exist today, though nobody has been able to duplicate the results, to date. The Spiricom gave off a loud buzz when in operation, due to the frequency generators. The idea was to use the different frequency waves being generated, as a carrier signal of the voice of any willing disembodied human who spoke from the other side of the grave. When Bill O’Neil spoke into the Spiricom machine, it has been reported you could hear “the voice getting wrapped up in the buzzing noises” generated by the Spiricom itself. Thus, the Spiricom sound itself has been jokingly described as being similar to musician Peter Frampton’s talk box.
After the two men worked on the Spiricom for some time, "then a most amazing thing happened.” A spirit voice began to get wrapped up in the radio waves. The spirit voice claimed to belong to deceased Dr George Jeffries Mueller (a NASA scientist). Dr. Mueller assisted the two men in improving the Spiricom device (Dr. Mueller being a scientist himself) from the spirit realm. George Meek and Bill O’Neil recorded more than twenty hours of dialog with Dr. Mueller, through the Spiricom.
