    hello i am trying to build a emf detector, I've tried an antenna in series to a 3.3 M ohm resistor and a volt meter and then the resistor in series to ground. But that didn't work, I was wondering if anyone has a circuit that works?

    What are you expecting it to do?

    That circuit is not really an "EMF" detector, more like a crude static electricity detector.

    So What I would like to do is kind of like this detector https://www.amazon.com/KII-Deluxe-B...TF8&qid=1476654779&sr=8-5&keywords=emf+meters but I plan on connecting the circuit to raspberry pi to log the readings. I got that type of circuit from http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-EMF-Detector/ I know raspberry pis don't have analog inputs, which is why I am connecting it to a mcp3008 an adc. The type I tried to make didn't give any real signal, so I am trying a hall effect sensor, but I am not sure on its range.

    I would like to try this circuit but the closest thing I was able to get was a http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/1924947.pdf?_ga=1.127058958.2085444920.1456966239, I set up the antenna on G which is the third legI believe, I set up the vcc on the middle leg and the led on the first leg all in reference to the front facing me. I will try combing my hair 5 feet from the antenna to see if it works, but is this the correct setup?
