Yes, you can go ghost hunting without costly ghost hunting equipment. In fact, you don’t need ANY equipment.
If all you do is visit a haunted site, you can encounter something eerie. Maybe even a ghost.
This is one of the first of my re-issued Hollow Hill podcasts.
Some things have changed in the eight years since I recorded this. (Okay, a lot has changed, but the info in this podcast is still valid, with a few notable exceptions.)
Today, if you just own a phone, you’re far ahead of where we were, back in 2000. Or even 2009. Or even 2019.
For example, your phone can take great ghost photos. You can use your phone to record EVP. You can use a free “ghost app” to identify active areas of any haunted site. (And yes, some of them are legit. I’ve seen them work.)
And so on.
Also, as of 2017, the K-II isn’t the only good EMF meter.
In fact, right now (late 2017) I like the Ghost Meter better than the K-II. (Also, the Ghost Meter costs about half as much as a K-II meter.) In “seance mode,” the Ghost Meter been surprisingly accurate for yes/no responses.
(That’s one in a photo on the right. Mine has a clear case, not black. And yes, it is an “as seen on TV” product. Despite that, it seems to work as a real-time communication device. I’d trust it far more than, say, a loosened flashlight/torch.)
Also, the Ovilus is available again. It’s far more sophisticated than it was in 2009. As of 2017, I’m testing its accuracy in a variety of on-site and remote experiments. So far, I can confirm that the Ovilus III can work remotely, with about 30% accuracy. But it is expensive. You don’t absolutely have to have it.
Other than that, most of this 2009 recording is still good information.
Yes, I still experience frustration when people miss seeing apparitions and other ghostly phenomena. But, since 2009, I’ve learned to accept that some researchers are going to hyper-focus on their ghost hunting equipment… and miss real hauntings.
Maybe this podcast will help. (It’s from HollowHillPodcasts.com.)
First, I talked about the importance of looking around and listening. I described the kinds of evidence you might see and hear.
Then, I shared an easy way to make your hands more sensitive to “cold spots” and exactly how to find them.
I also described the best ways to use dowsing rods, and whether or not you should investigate “lights out” at indoor locations. (In most cases, there’s not much reason to work in the dark, but there are exceptions.)
