About Me

My photo
Behind Every Cloud is a Kindred Spirit (BECKS)I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. How could I still communicate with him? I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I have been researching the paranormal for over 30 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one unexplainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.

Ghost Hunting Equipment-I


Hi everyone.  Hope your Tuesday night is going great.  So, tonight lets talk  about ghost hunting equipment.  I am not going to talk about big, fancy equipment because the title of my blog is Becks Everyday Ghost Hunter so I want to talk about equipment that the everyday ghost hunter can afford and use.

First, the ghost detector......These are inexpensive and a great little piece of equipment to have your in your ghost hunting bag.  They cost about $35.   The most popular one is called the Ghost Meter.  I really like this one because it is very easy to use.  It has a easy to read needle, lights and sound.  Again, I am not promoting any one product, I am just giving you my opinion. :)
The EMF Ghost Meter is used to measure disruptions  in the electromagnetic Field of a location.  This can sometimes be an indication of a spirits presence.

Next, the K-II meter is another EMF device that is a little more expensive(about $70).  It works the same way as the Ghost Meter but the basic one does not have sound and instead of a needle it uses a series of lights to show EMF levels.  The K-II is my personal favorite.  All you have to do is turn it on and that's it.  So, unlike the Ghost Meter, you can sit it down and walk away.  You can communicate by watching the lights moving up and down.  This is great when it is dark.  And we all know that most of our ghost hunting is done in the dark.  With the K-II,  you don't have to have a light to see the needle like you would when using the Ghost Meter.
Product Details

 
I just think it is a must..... that if you are serious, or even if your not, but you are wanting to collect evidence of a spirit or haunting you need a digital recorder.  These can be purchased anywhere and the prices vary from $30-over $100.  The one I use is a Sony and cost about $60.  I have included a link to a EVP I recorded at the Old Alton Bridge saying my name(Becky).  And just for the record....when a spirit calls you by name......YOU LISTEN!!!!!!!!!!!   So, get a recorder...you need one!

Of course, it goes without saying....you need a good camera.  In my opinion, you need something that is more than 7 mega pixel.  Using a digital camera is one of the most important pieces of equipment when you are trying to collect evidence of a ghost.  The price of a digital camera can vary so much it just depends on your budget as to which one to get.  Just a quick note here, when you are using a digital camera be sure to snap TWO photos back to back if you are feeling a spirit may present.  This is just a way to prove or disprove what you have captured on camera.  I personally always like to use the time and date stamp on my photos, just to help me analyze my photo.  Lots of people do not like this feature, they feel it takes away from the picture.  So, to each their own...:)  I also love that so many of today's camera's have video on them as well, so you get two great things in one!  I really like Nikon camera's.  But again, it's just my opinion.  There are many great ones on the market.

There are many more pieces of equipment I would love to talk to you about, but for tonight I think that's it.  The things I've talked about above, I feel, are things you need to have a great night of ghost hunting.  Of course, don't forget your flashlights and extra batteries.  But you guys already know that. :)  Thanks for reading...Happy Hunting!
