Almost every ghost hunter I know or we sell to has one of these units. If you want to know what the guts look like and what the main components do, please watch this video.

VBlog # 4 / We're more than just gadget geeks

You wonder when I say "we", who do I mean? Well, there are a lot of people who belong to the Moditronic family, even other companies. I (Big Al) personally do some specalty ghost tours in this beautiful 75 hearse.
She's a beauty! The sister company is Ghost Augustine owned by T. Russell.

If you get a chance, come down and see us. Ask for me (Big Al) and we'll try to fit you in to one of our very popular tours. 

Yes, besides making Paracorder ( emf pumps ) and electrostatic detectors, the Paraspectrum, the Deep IR and Open Spectrum camcorders, we use them and test them here in haunted St. Agusutine Florida on our tours at Ghost Hearse and yes, there are plenty of opportunities for positive testing.

We even have fully equipped paranormal laboratory to play around with when we're not building our ghostly wares. This FULLY EQUIPPED beauty houses several thousand dollars of paranormal equipment ( found at )  We use it on investigations but also rent it out to ghost hunters and some TV networks for shoots.

So besides this informative and fun blog, Big Al and the Moditronic motley crew have much to do with the ghost hunting community. We're not your typical gadget nerds just making meters. Oh no...

So, for those of you who were wondering what I mean when I say "we", now you know. It's more than just the lab guys.

Vblog # 2 / Pulsating EMF pump tests with Paracorders

Paracorder 667 and Paracorder EVP BOOSTER side by side. This test says it all.

These are very powerful tools for detecting and energizing ghosts ghostly activity

VBlog # 1 / Introduction

This video blog will consist of varying topics related to electronics and the paranormal. It will always start with this intro so that you know this video is by us, Moditronic.

Nutsy humor aside, Big Al holds a Masters of EE in Electronics and Avionics from Vaughn College and has worked for various large corporations in the service of Computer Communication Technology, Electronic Design and Implementation.

Moditronic has purchased a small home in St. Augustine, Florida and the principal holder of the company, "Big Al", will be conducting most of these videos from there (THE MODITRONIC LAB) at night, sometimes close to the witching hour. Why? Because no one is around except Al, the camera and maybe a ghost or two..... You will be entertained and informed.

This place is very interesting indeed. Our first day of etching boards we find this little snake which we adopted as our outside pet. (No name yet, maybe you can help us). This wormy little bugger was hunting for roaches by the mulch bed. This is just a taste of what we have to deal with in St. Augustine, Florida (besides ghosts).

For those of you who speak "Spammish" (or Spam Email language) I will translate.

"Blog for Video this very nice happy joy joy, informations for you very much, conductor Big Al talking every time for subject paranormal electronic this nice. "
