Yeah, radio interference is a very real problem with EVP, as it the 'auto gain' circuit in most recorders. These boost very quiet noise into something more audible on the recordings. This often leads to people getting recordings when they were sure that there was no noise at the time.

Actually one of the more useful ways to use a 'ghost box' is not to talk to spirits, but to check how much radio reception you can get in a given area.

in a mine doesn't work either. We were in Nenthead mines, cumbria. We generally use a frank's box to check radio signals are present, and they were, underground, in an old lead mine.

well either that or the spirits were having a party, spinning discs and having a good natter!

an I bet there would be plenty of people who would clearly state that "We eliminated any chance of radio interference as we were down an old lead mine", without even checking.

It reminds me when people post a pic of an 'orb' and state that "We've eliminated the possibility of dust". How do you do that exactly?

exactly. imagine the spondoonage you could rack up selling asthma related products if you could eliminate dust! If I could do it the last thing I'd be doing is mooching around abandoned buildings taking photos!
