Air Ion Counter This device measures positive and negative ions in the air. Ghosts can cause a lot of positive ions because they give off high amounts of electromagnetic discharges.


Bags These should preferably be special plastic ones with zips, used to contain any material evidence that is found.

Rubber Gloves, better to use if something might be toxic.


Barometer Some ghost hunters believe that paranormal activity can affect barometric pressure so it may be useful to take one.


Candles and Matches These are essential items especially if your flashlight and equipment stop working. Some ghost hunters believer that ghost energy can drain equipment energy and candles should be taken as a back up.


Camera A 35mm camera with black and white film and/or infrared film is very useful for capturing any pictures. Ensure that you have plenty of film. For best results use a film speed of no less than 200. A speed of 800 may produce better results although it will be very grainy. It is also important that your camera has flash either its own or slave flash. Have all the film developed by experts and don't forget a tri-pod to avoid camera shake.


Compass A compass is not only very useful for navigation it is also great for picking up electromagnetic forces. A compass will react to any magnetic or electrical stimulus that may be out of the ordinary. For this reason it is probably better to avoid an electronic compass instead use the needle points north kind.


Control Object This is a small object such as a coin that is placed on a piece of white paper, which in turn is placed on a table or where it will not be disturbed. A pencil circle is drawn around the coin so that it's exact location is recorded. The coin and paper are then left and then re-examined at the end of the ghost hunt to see if the coin has moved. If it has, then this could indicate some strange activity. Ensure no-one can accidentally move the coin or you will obtain false results.


Digital Recorder These are very useful and they are quickly becoming the item of choice for obtaining electronic voice phenomenon results.


Dowsing Rods

Dowsing Rods: Here is another device that has been around for many years and is used to detect underground water sources. No one knows how it works, but it does. Dowsing rods are usually constructed of brass and are bent into an L-shape. By holding them loosely in each hand, they can point the way towards water. Genealogists also use them to discover unmarked graves in cemeteries and they have also been used to determine the sex of an unborn baby.


In ghost hunting, the short ends of the rods are held loosely in each hand and they are said to sway in the direction of an energy field, pointing the way to it. When the ghost is discovered, they are said to cross.

Extra Batteries These are essential because ghosts are thought to be electromagnetic and this can cause batteries to run down quite quickly. Extra batteries will be essential for all of the ghost hunting equipment that needs it.


Film Electromagnetic discharges can affect film and it may need to be replaced. Therefore it is important to ensure that plenty of spare rolls are accessible. Use 200 or 400 possibly 800 speed film, this will provide the best photographs.


Flash Lights

First aid kit - just in case, it's very easy to trip in the dark and get cut.

Headset Communications When operating as a team of three or more people, headset communicators are useful for staying in contact when spread out. Headset communicators, unlike their counterpart the walkie talkie allow the user to have their hands free to use other equipment such as cameras. Prices range from $30 to $80 each.



Mobile Phone These are useful in case of an emergency they can also be affected by the presence of strange activity.


Motion Detectors


Night Vision Equipment Night Vision scopes can be very useful. Cheap night vision adapters are available that will attach the scopes to video cameras for about $30. However Night Vision Equipment can be expensive. Choose monocular or binocular equipment. Binocular are a good choice because they add the benefit of depth perception. Prices range between $250-$4000. You can get some good scopes in the $300 range that work well on video equipment.


Night Vision Video Camera This device is similar to combining a video camera with a night vision scope and allows the recording of light not normally visible to the naked eye. A good investigative tool.


Notebook Always keep records of times and events, this is very useful for documenting the investigation and especially if the study is to be replicated. Pens and pencils are also essential.


Red Cellophane This is a useful material for covering the lenses of flashlights in order to prevent the light from being too blinding.


Small Windchimes Some researchers claim that breezes sometimes accompany ghosts. Windchimes should be placed in areas where the ghost is thought most likely to appear and of course out of the wind or drafts. This is a simple system that can alert investigators to photograph the area.


Spot Lights These small battery powered spot lights help at night when setting up and taking down cameras and other equipment. They can also be used for safety and to get a better view of the surrounding terrain at night. Some of the most useful ones sit on the ground but have swivels on the lights enabling them to be set to different angles

.
Talcum Powder This is a useful substance for capturing footprints or hand prints. Sprinkle it around on the ground around where the investigation is taking place.


Tape Recorder A good tape recorder and an external static free microphone should be in use at all times during a ghost hunt. Although nothing may be heard during the investigation there is a phenomenon called EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) whereby spirit voices have been known to appear on tape later after being reviewed. Ensure the use of brand new tapes when recording.


Thermal Imaging Scopes This device allows you to actually see what your thermal scanner detects. Should there be a cold spot, this infrared technology makes it possible to see the shape and size of the cold pot. Unfortunately this is still quite expensive equipment.


Thermometer Rapid drops in temperature has often been associated with the presence of a ghost. As with the compass the old fashioned mercury filled, red-line thermometer is probably better than its electronic counterpart. A good thermometer can detect changes in room temperature quickly and where electromagnetic forces have been reported, an electronic device might fail or be wrongly affected.


Video Camera This piece of equipment allows events to be captured as they are happening.


Walkie-Talkies These devices allow you to communicate with your ghost hunting party. If you are investigating a house and you have people scattered all over, walkie-talkies allow you to keep in touch.


Wrist Watch An essential piece of equipment for recording the time when the events happen.

Solar Flare activity and Geomagnetic Field activity seems to affect the amount of ghost activity. Research has shown us that during periods of heightened solar flare activity and geomagnetic activity in space, the amount of spirit activity increases. M class and X class flares are good sources of energy for the spirits to use to manifest. Spirits often tap into normal electrical sources such are electrical appliances and batteries to get this energy but on days when the air is full of excess energy due to a solar storm or flare, they have a surplus of energy to tap into. This information is also important because it may adversely affect your more sensitive EMF meters, like the Trifield EM meter, giving you false positive readings.

The moon also affects ghosts, the geomagnetic fields on the earth are strongest during the days on and around the new and full moon cycles. Spirit activity is also increased during this period because of the jump in geomagnetic activity.
