In my tool box you may find the following these days. I have included a few comments regarding some of the equipment, any questions about the equipment, ask!

General:
1. - 8 Channel datalogger system with sensors for temperature, humidity, voltage, proximity sensing, and 2 general A-D Conversion modules
2. - BEC Dynamic EMF Monitor
3. - BEC Static EMF Monitor (These two are used instead of the more common EMF Meters)
4. - Power Module that provides power for areas away from the power grid. (12 VDC and 120 VAC)
5. - FLIR system - (works good but seldom used as it has been found ineffective for paranormal research)
6. - Radiation monitor (Geiger counter) Also seldom used as no evidence of radiation has ever been detected. Some UFO landing locations are purported to have background radiation though.

Video and Photographic:
1. - Three VHS systems comprised of a separate camera, monitor, and recorder each.
2. - IR camera and illuminator compatable with the above as an option
3. - Interchangable lenses for the above video cameras.
4. - 35 mm SLR film camera. (for evidence gathering)
5. - Old VHS camcorder (seldom used these days)
6. - 6 mpix digital camera for general applications.

Audio:
1. - BEC EVamP2 mixer board.
2. - 3 electret microphones
3. - 2 Inductive pickups
4. - ESF Pickup
5. - Various mic extnsion cables
6.. - Harmon Kardon stereo cassette recorder deck for EVP work
7. - Scott Cassette stereo recorder deck for EVP work.
8. - Koss Headphones for real-time monitoring of EVPs
9. - High Gain single channel audio amplifier with shotgun mic (long distance outdoor EVP and other audio monitoring) Can also be fed into EVamP2 mixer.
10 - 15 watt stereo amplifier for EVP experimental transmission project and general applications.
11 - Sony voice recorder for witness interviews and logging only NOT EVER USED FOR EVPs

Lab and Analysis Equipment :
1. - HP Audio frequency spectrum analyzer
2. - Tektronix 4 channel oscilloscope
3. - 2 Audio frequency function generators
4. - Digital and conventional Voltmeter and ohmeters (for equipment evaluation)
5. - BEC 3 channel parametric equalizer with noise and shelving gates (EVP analysis)
6. - Computer and software for reading the data captured by the datalogger system
7. - Logging and recording magnetic anomaly detector. (Monitors for possible field disturbances associated with UFOs.)

Cave,

your data logger...what type do you use and any recommendations for a start-up group on the most user-friendly and cost effective to get?

I was also wondering about those remote weather stations...they have some that offer direct data-logging now via USB. Have you or anyone else had any experience with those?

Thanks!

Dave

I use one I originally built as a solar heat controller. It has 8 inputs that were intended for temperature sensors, but were modified to accept any 0 to 5 volt input. They are sampled at various rates and the data saved in the system's memory. I can use any sensor for anything as long as it meets the input requirements. currently I have temperature, humidity, barometric, ambient light, and can attach it to the analog output on my EMF monitor.. I also have three on / off sensors that do just that, determine simply if a device they are connected to is on or off.

Later I can read it out via USB and display the data in a graph form or save it to a spread sheet in the computer. The system is similar to an Omega Instruments AD128 system they sell only not quite as compact.

The remote weather stations should work well for this as you suggest. I have one here that I use as weather station but have never tried it on an investigation. Although mine does not have a USB port, it might be worth considering though simply as a monitoring method
