Paraphysics and EVP
A computer aided search for a possible documentation of the physical reality (with deliberate resign of any interpretation) behind the claimed "Electronic Voice Phenomenon" gave some very surprising results and made possible the development of a new computer based registration method. A method, which furthermore permits the saving of each step on the harddisk for a later investigation and documentation.
Part one contains a necessary historical background - the discovery of a phenomenon, the very beginning, the pioneers with their primitive techniques, the first books, the 1971 investigations in England and all the events that followed. A look back on some occurrences in the last half of the past century - seen with the eyes of today.
Part two deals with my own work - some new analogue and digital (computer) techniques, the question of documentation and some personal comments.

Only after a protracted laboratory work concerning the search for a possible physical reality behind the claimed "Electronic Voice Phenomenon" (EVP), did I fully realize that it was a chiefly a paraphysical and not a parapsychological investigation I had become engaged in.
It is very easy to find a lot of websides concerning the Electronic
Voice Phenomenon. Nearly all are written from a more or less
spiritualistic-esoteric point of view and all using technical methods known
in some form already from the very beginning of the sixties. I do not share
the mentioned viewpoints, neither do I find an eternal repeating of obsolete
methods worth the trouble. Why?
But before you start reading about some purely technical subjects,
maybe it could be a good idea to have a look at the very beginning and later
development of this strange phenomenon, all the wheres, whos, hows, whys and
last but not least why nots. I do not know all the answers, and perhaps you
already know some of them. But please give also Part One of this
homepage (even if it is of some length) a chance.
