When you do get an EMF meter make sure you know the in's and out's about it many people get false readings because they are not using them correctly.
70% to 80% of the time you will get nothing most of the time you will think "is this thing working" and when you are standing there late at night, in the graveyard, in silence and you get a spike and your meter squeals, you will probably jump, I know I did.
The Dr. Gauss model made by the Huntar Company is a great base model it is easy to use, low cost, and very sensitive.

Ya, Hodges put little cuts all through the article, he was obviously laughing at us and intended ill. I am sure he put that "Quote" from Nichols with the intent to lead folks to believe that he was with us, in an attempt to discredit the group. I even sent that buzzard an mpg that showed an orb coming through the basement ceiling near his head. The article put a bad taste in my mouth. I suppose our groups founder decided to let folks make up there own mind with the article, she's usually right. Yes, the "group" that I frequently refer to in my posts is GHOSM, I am a member.
Ohorror, I remember you telling about that meter squeeling. I would have done more that jump, probably would need a change of shorts. LOL

NoelleQUOTE-I want so much to believe, but I've always had this "prove it to me" thing. -QUOTE
Nothing wrong with a prove it to me nature, in fact I think it is a necessary element to keep your research honest.
Keep at it and don't give up. It's kinda like chopping wood. It's not that final chop that that cuts through the wood, but rather the multiple chops that came before. Same thing in paranormal research. Keep at it and eventually you will start getting results. Make sure you talk to the spirits also. tell them what you are going to do just like they are standing next to you (they might really be!).

I WORKED IN MANHATTAN IN REAL ESTATE FOR A SHORT TIME A FEW YEARS AGO. I CAN TELL YOU THAT NO REALTOR IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WILL "DISCLOSE" SUCH INFORMATION, OR MUCH ELSE!!!

I appreciate your thoughts. Historically, red coats would be accurate for Ney York. Not only in the revolution, but also much earlier.
I understand the realtors position of not wanting to disclose "ghosts", but it might actually enhance the desirability of the house to some of us. *LOL*
I hope you come back again and share your thoughts with us.

ESPECIALLY on a windy night, I would not recommend walking around with one because the wind will drown out the majority of other sound.
Rapid movement can also create some noise that will be picked up by the microphone, even an extended mic. Shuffling papers, clanging noises from things you might be wearing and even footsteps can be incredibly loud because the microphones are very sensitive to pick up all sounds.

You are absolutely right with your tips about using the recorders. Another I would mention, especially with the clip on types, is to avoid anything rubbing against the microphone cord. When the gain is cranked up abrasive sounds can be amplified. I also suggest one of those itty bitty windscreens available at radio shack to cut down on wind noise.

A lot of very good information has been given to me. There are areas around where I live that would be great places to bring a microphone. Now my question is this. What is everyone's opinion on the best time to go out and make recordings? Is it in the morning, dusk, after dark? Is it best when all else is quiet? Or does it really matter about the time?
Regarding the Ackley House in Nyack, NY--I've mentioned that my Dad sails with an Ackley who grew up in the house. I have not met the man, but I would LOVE to hear firsthand the stories that he tells my Dad. He was excited when I brought back photos of the house on a visit to Nyack 4 1/2 years ago and he wanted copies. I was in Nyack about 3 weeks ago and drove by the Ackley mansion, but I didn't stop to take a photo. I don't know anyone who lives there, but I sure would love to see the inside of the place. The couple that bought the Ackley house in 1990 were not crazy about ghosts, as was Mrs. Ackley. The man did not have a problem with them, but his wife was totally spooked and that is what made them want to get their deposit back.
