NOTE: NO DEVICE CAN DETECT PARANORMAL ACTIVITY!!!
Theories on devices and human manipulation of these devices are thought to show forms of activity. Please remember we are taking devices that are used in other fields and trying to use them within the paranormal field.
One of the most popular devices is the following :
MEL-8704 EMF Meter
FACT: EMF meters detect electromagnetic fields.
THEORY: Theory #1: When a spirit/ghost manifests, it gives off an electromagnetic field, which may be picked up by an EMF meter.
Theory #2: When a spirit/ghost manifests, it needs energy to do so. In an area where there is a high EMF field, the spirit/ghost may draw in that high EMF and manifest.
HOW TO USE: The first thing you’re going to do is press the power button, which will turn the meter on. Then press the unit button one time to change the setting to 0.0mg. When the meter is set up, do a walk through of the investigation site and find out if there is anything surrounding the area that could cause an electrical disturbance and throw off the meter. While doing a walk through, get a general base reading of the location. While walking around the site you must hold the meter steadily because too much movement could throw off the reading. If you get an unusual reading, study the area and try to figure out what could be causing it. When the investigation is over, be sure to document your average reading and any unusual readings in the field report.
RANGE: The unit of measurement for this EMF meter is milligaus (mg). The range on the meter is 0mg to 188mg. The range from the meter to the active field is 0 to 8 feet, depending on how strong the electromagnetic field is.
READINGS: Normal readings are from 0mg to 1.5mg. Paranormal readings are from 1.5mg to 8mg. Paranormal activity can occur lower than 1.5mg if the base is low. For example, if you are getting a base reading of .1mg to .3mg, and then the meter jumps to 1.2mg, this may be paranormal activity.
EXTRAS: This meter also has an ambient thermometer built into it that will detect temperature changes from 1 foot away. This meter can also record your highest and lowest EMF reading throughout its time of use during an investigation.Devices and
