Even though high EMF has never been proven to signify the presence of spirits, I feel you should have as many tools with you to help you in your search for the truth. So, rather than exclude something unproven, I want to test out possible correlations between high EMF, possible temperature drops, and any potential EVP's that might be picked up at supposed haunted sites. I want to develop methodologies that can be used by others to retest such occurrences. And while the jury is currently out, at least to me, as to relations between EMF and paranormal events, I am willing to go through what needs to be done to either help in proving the veracity of the claims by those who say spirits and high EMF go hand in hand, or disprove such assertions.
Now that that disclaimer is out there, I have a question. /wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='' />
What digital EMF meter would you recommend getting? We are looking for one that is backlit (I assume most digital EMF meters are), has an alarm, and a price point around $100. Also, do we need one with some sort of probe? This is the one we will be taking to Waverly.
I know it is more expensive than your price point, but this meter…
cannot be beaten.
It filters out not only 60hz, but ALL harmonics.
The gentleman that started this company is a former research colleague of mine, and his attention to detail is second to none. Justin, the developer of this emf meter, developed from scratch (code and hardware) the A.R.C.A.D.I.A. datalogging system back in 2001, the only other one at the time was the M.E.S.A. project. More info about Justin's work can be found at
At any rate, if I had to pick an AC meter, it would be one of the magnii line of meters…
I've enjoyed the Cell Sensor that I bought a while back. It was cheap and while it may not be back lit, it does have a red light that beeps and makes noise when EMF is detected at a certain level. It's not digital but has the needle scale. It has a probe on a wire that is about one foot long. I think I paid around $40 for it off the home depot website. I don't know the specifics on what it ranges it picks up.
As for the use of EMF, we only use them to sweep the building before the investigation starts to look for high levels of EMF. Mainly since there is wide speculation about how high levels affects the human body. We will run it during the investigation but so far I haven't had it go off for anything unusual. Except for a cemetery that is local but that's another story.
The MEL-8704 meets your guidelines (almost) of digital and backlit, and also adds ambient temp as well. It is a solid meter and starts around $150 depending on the options you want. If you plan on using it stationary, I highly reccomend the TriField natural EM. It measures magnetice and electric. Although it is analog, (it does have a backlit option), it is VERY sensitive and has audio indicating field strength (great when using in conjuction with a recorder).
