How can you tell if it's radio interference?

RE: How can you tell if it's radio interference?
Considering the facts your recorder picks up interference from multiple sources. And the fact high end recorders, radio, recording studios do not pick up evp kind of explains where the sound is coming from. Wouldn't ghosts need to be proven before you can think they have the ability to talk to you? I take it you ignored the assap post? It offers ways to rule out random noise.

Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

RE: How can you tell if it's radio interference?
Now lets get out of the $30.00 dollar recorders and go up to the $200-300 dollar ones.

This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy .

Tascam?
Operation of this equipment in a residential area is
likely to cause harmful interference.
Wait what was that? It will generate interference, so now we know others recorders maybe interfering with other equipment being used.

See a problem with any evp?

You present one instance that you debunked. A single "no". If that's the best you've ever come up with on an investigation then, like I said, you are affecting the whole investigation with your state of mind. I've heard names come through clear as a bell on TV shows. Of course there could be trickery afoot. I tend to believe until proven wrong. You do the opposite. Your reality. There will never be absolute proof of the paranormal because we live in a world of free will. People have the right not to believe in anything. That's why there's no proof backing up ANY of the myriad of religions out there. Some of us come here KNOWING the paranormal is real. It's part of the holiday package. Some, like yourself, come here knowing it is not real. And I fear that state of mind continues after death. When you pass on you will find yourself in a dark place. The place that fits you. A place of nothingness. Meanwhile I'll be in heaven having sex with super models. Your choice.Devil Smiley

I've heard VERY clear words come through, some not so clear. There's enough evidence out there of the paranormal being real.

In my days of EVP's I never had my recorder pick up interference of any kind. The AC, knocks...sometimes known, a couple not. Picked up a sneeze when no one was in the house. I only got one real, verbal EVP and it was 3 words, clear as day.

Those who have experienced know there's proof. Non believers will never have proof even if it smacks them upside the head.

RE: How can you tell if it's radio interference?
Did some research, and I found out how to isolate radio frequencies on an EVP. According to the book "Stalking Darkness", written by an expert on parapsychology, by analyzing the spectrograph and reading the frequency of the waves creating the sound we can compare it to known frequencies of radio.

The AM Spectrum is 535,000 hz to 705,000 hz. The FM Spectrum is 88,000 hz to 108,000 hz.

The human voice is around 85 hz to 250 hz. Most EVPs, if true paranormal, are well below or above these points but hardly ever in the spectrum of stray radio waves. In addition most recorders are unable to pick up frequencies of sound that high anyway.

I skimmed the article and this is what it says about radio interference:

"While this is possible and may happen from time to time, it seems unlikely to be a major source of apparently paranormal voices. If you try sampling many radio stations, by moving the tuning dial on your radio, it is easy to see why. Many stations broadcast mostly music, rather than speech, these days. And if you did pick up a speech radio transmission on a recorder by mistake, the chances are very low that the words you would hear would be very relevant to your situation when you are recording. Most EVP researchers report that the words are frequently relevant to their situation and even sometimes appear to answer their questions! Wireless microphones are prone to picking up unwanted radio transmissions and should be avoided in paranormal research."

Nonetheless, I will be doing experiments to see if exposure to the things listed in the user manual can actually cause voices to appear. By recording right next to TV, power lines, etc. I can test your theory that the voices would be caused by this. My guess is that by "malfunction" they meant that the recorder would stop recording. But we will see.
