Haunted Ottawa Paranormal Society

(H.O.P.S.) is a dedicated FREE VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION of people who do not have any preconceived or established beliefs about the paranormal. Together, we have a combined 25 years of paranormal experience. We are open-minded about ideas, beliefs, and further research and experimentation. Like most paranormal investigators around the world today, we are always learning and gathering knowledge as we explore and investigate reported hauntings around Ontario.

Martintown Grist Mill

The Martintown Mill was built in 1846 by Alexander McMartin. It is located in the centre of the village of Martintown in historic Glengarry county, Ontario. The mill is a charming, rustic building in a picturesque setting on the north bank of the Raisin River. It is a popular destination for tourists.

Haunted Ottawa Paranormal Society

Established - January 2001

Ottawa's Oldest Established Paranormal Group Dedicated To investigate The Unknown.

"To the believer, we have an overabundance of evidence. To the nonbeliever, we never have enough".

How Can you prove it exist, when you can't prove it does not

EMF and its Groups

EMF is broken down in two groups

Ionizing and non ionizing radiation

1. This EMF that can break chemical bonds these wavelength of EMF are dangerous as they can quickly damage tissues and severe heath risk..

Example are ultra violet, x-rays , & gamma rays are example of ionizing radiation.

2. Non ionizing radiation is what produced by our electronic equipment, cell phones, house wiring & most of the things we come into contact during an investigation..

This is why it's important to be stationary while doing a EMF reading. If you cross a KII across a magnetic field it will sense the current generate & lights up even like a fridge magnet. Our instrument measures EMF in specific ranges or frequencies EMF are defined by their wave frequency. If you equate this to ocean waves the frequency is the distance between the waves crest, measured in meters. This is where it's important to understand what frequencies are produced by some of our common electronic. So if all these gizmos are around us, how we know if its paranormal?. This is where our understanding of EMF along with good investigation techniques come into play. First and foremost we must take initial readings of a room or a site to know where the natural sources are. This becomes our baseline and our point of reference for the evidence review create a map of the fields and label the strengths as close as possible before the session. Normal sources of high EMF include unshielded home wiring doorbell transformers fluorescent light ballasts. .

Other source of radiation consist of microwave antenna towers, cell phone towers & gsm network cell phones. Even power lines running directly overhead will produce a detectable field. If we consider paranormal activity as having some form of energy manipulation or modulation it makes sense that the electromagnetic fields would also be distributed. When we see fluctuation may actually be ripples in the field. When we see fluctuations in the baseline of our investigation site, we may actually be reading a ripple in the field caused by some unexplainable force. Consider tossing a pack into the center of a pond. The pack creates a ripple that can be measured EMF fluctuation may actually be ripple in the field caused by some unexplained force
