Report #572 – Initial Post by Brad Bradley
[REDACTED] West Point, VA 23181,
West Point VA 23181
We were offered the opportunity to conduct research at the [REDACTED] in West Point, VA. A date was set and a team was assembled (Brad Bradley, Kenny Newsome, Richard Bowen +1, Rhonda Ritzel).
HQ was established in the [REDACTED] building to the West of the [REDACTED]. DVR cameras were setup to cover all corners of the [REDACTED]. A live monitor DR05 recorder was placed on the West side, a tablet recorder was placed on the East side and another recorder was placed in the [REDACTED] of the North side. The tablet recorder also contained environmental sensors (mag field, accelerometer and light). A PASCO environmental datalogger unit (voltage, temp, humidity, BP, Light) was placed in the North [REDACTED]. A sensor block (temp, humidity, BP, light, UV) was placed in the West [REDACTED]. A geiger counter datalogger was placed in the central part [REDACTED], just below [REDACTED].
Report #573 – Personal Report by Brad Bradley
A team consisting of Brad, Kenny and Richard entered the [REDACTED] on an excursion and conducted a scenario whereby Richard and Brad were against the British crown and Kenny was a loyalist. During this scenario many bangs and thumps were observed, more than other excursions. Some of these were observed by HQ via live monitor, but not heard by the team. Also, there was the sound of a gun cocking, not observed the rest of the night. During the scenario, there was an increase in ionizing radiation in the room from 18cpm to 38cpm. Post scenario, this dropped back to 18cpm.
