How to Use an EMF Detector. Difference between EMF and Geomagnetism.
Updated: 6 days ago
A lot of good folks believe that EMF is like a fog or small waist-high floating cloud they can sweep their EMF detector through and get a hit. This is not so. EMF is not like a small floating cloud. EMF is an alternating current radiating from the source. The source could be a radio tower or your Rumba.
Geomagnetic or DC magnetic fields do not alternate and are therefore not detected by an EMF meter detector. An EMF meter will not detect a magnet from your refrigerator. Unless you can move it back and forth fast, then it would be alternating current.
The earth's magnetic field is stable, static, it does not alternate. This is one reason most EMF meters do not detect this magnetic field. Parts of the Earth change. Areas are heated by the sun and plates move causing changes in the earth's magnetic field. This change causes alternating current. Your EMF meter would detect this as an EMF.
How to tell the difference between EMF and geomagnetism. You can tell the difference if you have the right equipment. A meter that detects DC magnetism is one you need. You cannot move these around, they must be stable and static to read properly. Compare your analog EMF meter detector to the DC meter. If they both react, it is geomagnetism. If only the EMF reacts then it is EMF not from the earth.
In the paranormal, detecting spirits with an EMF detector is theoretically possible. If a couple of things happen. The spirit would have to radiate at a frequency the EMF meter can detect. The Spirit would have to radiate alternating current. If these two happen most EMF detectors could detect spirits.
What happens when you feel static, and your hair stands up? This is where a high-quality EMF meter is handy. You can switch the EMF meter to DC detection and detect the static.
