Ghostly Activities visited the Queen Mary on Nov. 9th to take some preliminary readings before our official ghost hunt. We also got a map and checked out some of the haunting hot spots.
Check out the gallery after the jump.
Initial EMF Readings
The first EMF readings – taken with a MEL meter – were normal. They were all below 0.5 mG. We tested the lights, electrical outlets and exit signs and none then reported anything above 0.3 mG. There is WiFi in the Queen Mary, but it didn’t seem to affect the MEL meter. We didn’t find any hotspots in the known haunted areas. This means there is good electric shielding and that should limit EMF anomalies.
Initial Temperature Readings
There were no cold spots or hot spots noted. It was a cool morning because of the marine layer and fog. All exterior temperature readings stayed between 58 – 60 degrees farenheit. Inside, it was a pleasant 70 degrees in most areas. As we checked on the lower decks, it became warmer and the highest temperature reading was 75 degrees.
Initial Audio Readings
The Queen Mary was very quiet. There were few guests on board. I’ve just begun checking out the audio data. We didn’t run EVP sessions at this time. We wanted to capture the ambient noise of the ship for the full investigation.
We’ll update this series when we conduct the full investigation later in November.
Audio Reading Update (Nov. 14, 2013): We didn’t find anything out of the ordinary in the audio data. There may be some white noise in the background from time-to-time. We also picked up some human voices from down the hall. So, noise carries in the hallways. The digital recorder didn’t pick voices from people speaking behind their room doors, although you could hear them from the hall.
