[For those of you who are not aware – the theory among veteran investigators is that when a spirit manifests – whether that manifestation is a visual apparition, a voice or noise, a smell, or a touch – that in the process it will throw off electro-magnetic energy – known as an electro-magnetic field – or “EMF.” This theory dove-tails with a sister theory that a spirit USES energy as well in order to manifest in the first place – and one of the energies it can draw upon is electro-magnetic energy. Hence one of the pieces of equipment available is an “EMF Pump” which creates a high EMF field around the “pump” device thereby providing the spirit with ample energy if it wants to use it…so the idea goes. But, that last device is for another post. By the way, the spirit can also draw upon the energy of the batteries in our equipment, or it may draw upon the energy in our bodies – as other examples. I’ve experienced both of those quite often actually.]
Veteran paranormal equipment and technology specialist David Roundtree, whom I greatly respect, has said of the K2 meter, “This has to be the sorriest excuse for an EMF meter I have analyzed to date.” We use several versions of the MEL 8704 EMF meter on investigations, the Trifield Meter (for AC current), and the Trifield Natural EMF Meter for measuring magnetic fields, electric fields, and electro-magnetic fields. This last meter, used properly, is by far the best meter for capturing evidence that a genuine paranormal EMF disturbance is occurring.
