FACT: This meter detects electronic radiation. The meter can detect signals from microwave ovens, cell phones, wireless phones, covert (hidden) cameras, electronic bugs, monitoring devices, wireless computers, wireless networking equipment, electronic car keys etc. Variation in signal strength may be due to multiple bouncing electrical signals, bouncing from wall to wall.
THEORY: In theory a ghost/spirit may interfere with electrical signals, which can be picked up by the zap checker.
HOW TO USE: The first thing you do is set the meter to “linear mode” at a sensitivity of 6. The sensitivity control goes from 0 – 10, 10 being the most sensitive. Then you walk the field. If the meter ranges from 20 -60 then there might be paranormal activity.
RANGE: High sensitivity will detect cell phones and covert bugs at more than 20 + feet, microwaves 40 + feet, FRS radios (walkie-talkies) and ham radios at 80 + feet. Frequency ranges from around 10 MHz to 4.5 GHz. Paranormal activity will occur between 20 – 60. The range on the meter is 0 – 100.
READINGS: The meter measures background electronic radiation. We use “linear mode” for paranormal investigations. “Log mode” is used mainly to measure signals from transmitting devices. A normal reading is from 0 – 20. A paranormal reading is from 20 – 60. Any erratic movement on the meter may also be paranormal. If you get paranormal activity try to confirm it with an EMF meter.
