Reno Hotel (8/28/14): What the Olympus 1 Caught in Room 979

I had the chance to investigate 6 rooms at a casino/hotel in Reno in August. We split the rooms so we did 3 on 8/28/14 (Thursday) and the other 3 on 8/29/14 (Friday).

The person who’d put the investigation together had investigated the Thursday rooms last year on her own and said she had a lot of very active encounters. I have to say that, at the time of the investigation, I didn’t really feel anything in any of the rooms. However, audio recordings show otherwise. Based on the number of audio clips I have from Thursday night, there was A LOT of activity going on.

For confidentiality reasons, I cannot tell you the name of the casino/hotel. I can tell you that it’s a popular place to play and stay in Reno.

These clips were recorded on my Olympus 1 DVR.

Clip 1: The possible EVP is at the start of the clip and before Laura J says, “Did you know I was drunk and sleeping in my room?” A voice says, “Whispered it,” although that didn’t refer to anything happening in the moment it was recorded. This is a 2nd generation recording.

Clip 2: At the beginning of the clip, you’ll hear Pam say, “M[y Ovilus app] said ‘metal’ at that point. So that might be mine.” A male voice says in a kind of exhale, “Mine” just before Laura J says, “I think [my Ovilus device] said ‘Paul.'” This is a 2nd generation recording.

There was one man in our group and he didn’t say “Mine.” The voice also did not come from any of the Ovilus apps or devices that were running at the time; the voice that says “Mine” doesn’t sound like the voices used for the Ovilus. So who said “Mine”?

Clip 3: We were using a device called an Andy’s Box<. Here's a YouTube video made by the guy who makes them, showing it in operation.


The Andy’s Box operates like the SB 7 Spirit Box. They both scan the radio frequencies that some believe can be used by the spirits to speak. The Andy’s Box has a much smoother transition from one frequency to the next and it is easier to hear sentences.

2 more friends were joining us on Saturday night. Laura J asks if the spirits know their names. At the 4 second mark, the Andy’s Box says “Mike.” At 5 seconds, there’s a clear “Chris and Mike.” The names of the 2 friends are Chris and Mike.

Clip 4: In this clip, you’ll hear Laura J ask if the spirits recognize her from last year. An Ovilus device says something that sounds to me like Nutella; ignore that. The possible EVP is at the 7 second mark. Can you make out what’s being said?
