K2 EMF Meter Study

K2 MeterLong Island Paranormal Investigators’ study of the K2 meter (also referred to as K-2, KII, K-II) was conceived and planned to research the assertion of the claimed designer of this EMF meter: That the K2 EMF meter device facilities communication with ghosts/spirits by allowing the entity to indicate yes/no answers to question.

Thesis: It is said by proponents of the K2 that a ghost/spirit can be “taught” to move closer to the K2 meter causing the LED display to jump multiple times in order to indicate positive or negative responses. More specifically that a K2 meter is the singular EMF meter tool for this type of investigation as opposed to the vast array of other models/types of EMF meters used by paranormal investigators for ghost/spirit detection. This activity relies on the paranormal theory that ghosts/spirits are at least in part electrically based and as such produce an EMF. Ghosts/spirits can be instructed that by moving towards and away from the meter it can show yes/no responses to questions posed by the investigator.

 

Study Design: LIPI purchased a K2 meter from LessEMF.com. We reviewed our investigations records and determined the top two most paranormally active locations on Long Island. Our plan is to visit these two locations at least 5 times each. We will bring the K2 meter as well as all the other EMF meters Long Island Paranormal Investigators uses (including digital EMF, Cellsensor, Electro sensor, Trifield meter, etc).

During each investigation the KII and all the other EMF meters will be arranged in a close circle and yes/no type questions asked. We will observe if the K-II meter changes in response to the questions while also observing the other EMF meters. If there is an ambient EMF field growing/shrinking in strength in response to the questions that EMF should be detectable by at least some of the other EMF meters besides the K2. We will also note if the other EMF meters record changes while the K2 remains unchanged.

 

K2 Meter Background

THEORY:

  1. Theory # 1: EMF meters detect electromagnetic fields. In theory when a spirit/ghost manifests, it gives off an electromagnetic field, which may be picked up by an EMF meter.
     
  2. Theory # 2: In theory a spirit can communicate with you through this meter by lighting up the LED lights. There would be 2 dashes of light if the answer is yes, and 1 dash of light if the answer is no. (This is Chris Flemming's theory on the K-II Meter.) NOTE: At this time LIPI is in the process of testing this theory in the field.

K-II K2 MeterHOW TO USE: Hold the button on the front of the meter. Point the meter away from you, scanning the area for any variations of magnetic fields. If the meter gets a reading try to locate where the reading is coming from by going over your previous pathway. When the investigation is complete write down your readings in the field report.

RANGE: The range on this EMF meter is 1mg to 20+mg. The range from the meter to the active field is 0 to 6 feet.

READINGS: The unit of measurement on all EMF meters is milligaus (mg). Normal activity through this meter is 0mg to 2mg. Paranormal activity occurs between 2.5mg to 10mg. Any readings above 10mg is probably non paranormal. There are many things that can throw off EMF readings, such as speakers, electrical wires, television sets, computers, appliances, electrical outlets, romex cable, power lines etc. The readings for theory # 2 is that the LED lights will blink twice for yes, and once for no.

Facts About the K2 Meter

  • The K-II Meter is an EMF (electro magnetic field) Meter.
  • The range of readings on the meter is from 1mg to 20+mg.
  • The unit of measurement is milligaus (mg).
  • The range from the meter to most EMF sources is from 0 to 6 feet.
  • The K-II Meter is more sensitive to radio frequencies than other EMF meters.
  • The K-II Meter will pick up cell phone signals within a 6-foot radius, car alarms within a 10-foot radius, and 2-way radios/Walkie Talkies within a 50+-foot radius.

 

Study Results Updated Summer 2008

Since first receiving our K2 meters in the summer of 2007 Long Island Paranormal Investigators has conducted 41 investigations using these devices.

All activity responded to some EVP questions. Question 1: "Do you mind that we are investigating here tonight?" The meter blinked once for (no) up to 10mg, which is 3 LED lights. Question 2: "Do you mind that this place is being renovated?" The meter blinked once for (NO) up to 10mg, which is 3 LED lights. Later that night down in the basement when Justin was using the K2 he also ask the same EVP question "Do you mind that this place is being renovated?", and got the same response. Possible activity.

Overall Results

The overall result at this study is out of 41 investigations there were 5 possible occurrences of activity through the K-II Meter. Basically 1 out of every 8 investigations something possibly happened. Overall I would say that at this time the results that we have gotten do not support the theory of the K-II meter.

In my judgment I would say that the theory is not consistent enough for this to be considered a fact for this meter. Even though we did get a few results, the results that we got were only for a few minutes out of an hour to about 8 hours of investigating time.  As of right now that is our conclusion on the K-II meter.

We will still research this theory, but I’m sure the results will remain the same.
