From personal experience, for some reason Sasquatch just doesn’t sell in the forum. I’ve posted several audio and video links to compelling evidence I’ve captured and in most cases (not all) no one will even comment one way or the other. Strange for a “Sasquatch” forum in my opinion.January 13, 2021 at 7:21 pm #181832January 10, 2021 at 3:38 pm #181644
Are you referring to an article or report?January 10, 2021 at 3:34 pm #181643
Interesting, thanks.January 9, 2021 at 11:24 am #181565
@knobby, here’s the link in your link for scott carpenter’s analysis. I give him credit for posting everything but he doesn’t have a clue what he is doing.
First of all, all you have to do is look at his plots to determine that the camera has no ability to record infrasound. In fact the plots show the camera’s audio rolling off starting between 50 and 70 hz. Look at the slope of the noise, it tells you everything. If it could do so it would be flat at least down to 10hz.
Secondly, he’s pointing out noise (not tones), in this case probably just thermal noise on the analog front end of the camcorder. An infrasound capture would have multiple LARGE tones pegging out the display. The circled areas are at least 65 db below full-scale.
Thirdly, signals, voices, infrasound, dogs barking or whatever at -65 dbFS hit the microphone with an infinitesimally small amount of energy.
To charactize it appropriately, a gnat fart would probably have as much sonic energy as whatever he thinks he felt. (You wouldn’t feel this, that I can guarantee you.)
The 70hz tone you see is probably from the hard drive of his camera.
I see why they have the comments turned off where his analysis is posted. Most people wouldn’t be as nice as me.January 9, 2021 at 7:59 am #181554
@knobby, if you look closely at what I said, It is my opinion that if something is able to create infrasound similarly to elephants and tigers then it will contain infrasonic AND human audible frequency components. ALL waveforms other than pure laboratory produced sinewaves will have real and measurable distortion which can contain harmonics all the way from infrasonic to ultrasonic. I’m sure you have heard of the term harmonic distortion relating to amplifiers. It’s a real thing and you can hear the harmonics in an amplifier when it is pushed beyond its limits. It’s not a pretty thing.
An opera singer with the most beautiful voice in the world cannot produce a note without harmonics. Nature’s laws are universal. I see no reason why nature would make an exception for Sasquatch. I don’t know if you are aware of it but you are actually making a case that Sasquatch are not natural. If what you say is accurate about being hit with infrasound (from a Sasquatch) multiple times and no one heard it, then they are supernatural or alien in origin using some device we can’t duplicate with current technology. There’s no physical explanation possible in the reality we are living in. Sorry.January 8, 2021 at 6:05 pm #181516
@Denise, Can you adjust the file size and/or the record time? I set mine to about 4 hrs in length. After 4 hours it will close the current file and start a new one. Shorter files are much easier to work with. I suspect that 25 hours is too large for the file system to handle easily and it just choked. Do you know what type of audio file you are creating? There are normally 2 different types available: compressed (mp3) and uncompressed ( WAV). If it’s set to record WAV then 25 hrs is a huuuuuuuge file.
Figure out how to reduce the file size and you should be fine.
Practice on the front porch overnight before you go again.

@knobby, I did look at the link to the article you posted. Unfortunately, there was nothing scientific about it. It was pretty much “Scott said he used a video recorder that can record infrasound”. That’s not science. It takes really specially designed microphones (big arrays) and audio recorders to be able to accurately capture anything below 20hz.
I know why he didn’t remember recording the Sasquatch at the time. It’s because it was a tree trunk with shadows on it and didn’t look like a Sasquatch to him because it was a flippin tree!
It’s not till he got home and started looking for faces in the shadows that he discovered the Sasquatch.January 8, 2021 at 12:19 pm #181487
@knobby, what I said in other words is that every wave other than a pure sine wave is made up of component wave forms. Although the infrasonic fundamental component is sub audible to humans all harmonics above about 20 hz may be heard depending upon the listener’s ears.
The examples I gave of tigers and elephants demonstrate that a sound such as a tiger roar can have both audible and sub audible tones as part of its composition. You can definitely hear the tiger when it produces the roar containing infrasound. You feel the infrasonic components and hear the higher frequency components at the same time. My opinion is that if Sasquatch are flesh and blood only, then they would also produce the infrasound similarly to tigers and elephants which means we would hear it as well as feel it.
If they are more than flesh and blood only all bets are off.January 8, 2021 at 11:50 am #181484
@Denise, do you conceal the recorder? I do mainly because I don’t want some off the trail hiker or hunter to make off with it.January 8, 2021 at 7:58 am #181457
Here’s something to consider about infrasound and some animals abilities to produce it. I did a quick check into elephants and tigers. They are indeed able to produce infrasound frequencies at varying sound levels. However if you look at the rest of the frequency spectrum they produce, it goes well into the hundreds of hz range which is audible to humans. These higher frequency components don’t propagate very well through heavy dense forests but at short distance (hundreds of yards) is very audible.
All animals with vocal cords produce tones having harmonic content. This means that if a singer sings a note at 200 hz there will be detectable harmonics at 400,600,800,1000 hz etc.
So, although I believe it’s possible and maybe probable that Sasquatch can produce infrasound when they roar,I find it less likely that they can effectively eliminate (humanly) audible harmonics especially at short distance.
I believe that I have several different recordings of Sasquatch roaring sounding similarly to a lion and it wouldn’t surprise me if there was a very low frequency infrasound component in it that my and most commercially available equipment is incapable of collecting.
No one reports hearing (or recording) the audible harmonic components of animal (Sasquatch?) produced infrasound in the field. If I am wrong about this please let me know.
So in my opinion, if there is something out there in the forest capable of creating infrasound ONLY, it’s definitely not flesh and blood only or else it’s using a technology beyond what humans are currently capable of (portability-wise and energetically ). This is not your father’s app.January 4, 2021 at 3:36 pm #181229
@knobby, I’m pretty sure I didn’t imply or say you were simple minded, weak minded, or lack common sense. I guess maybe close minded is a possibility though based on your comments. What I’m curious about is your personal evidence supporting your strong views. Let me state again that I don’t claim to know everything even though I have had multiple encounters and have tons evidence, that doesn’t make me an expert, far from it. I always question folks that are opinionated because there’s always a chance I will learn something. Questioning all people including Dr. Johnson and even Scott Carpenter should be the norm in my opinion.

Hey @Knobby, just so I know where you are coming from, is demonic trickery considered a natural explanation or paranormal?December 30, 2020 at 2:33 pm #180970
@CarlW, that’s a really great question! It’s been my experience and others that spend countless hours in the forest collecting evidence of various types that the flesh and blood only description only partially explains the phenomenon. It’s like Newtonian physics verus relativity. The deeper you dig into the Sasquatch phenomenon the more the flesh and blood only explanation falls apart. Don’t let someone like Dr. Johnson and his incredible unsubstantiated claims get you to believe that if one guy says something wild that they case is solved for all. Closed mindedness when talking about Sasquatch is illogical especially with as many knowers as there are on SC. Do I have all the answers? Absolutely effing not. So unless you have all of the answers you have none of the answers.
In summary, I have changed from flesh and blood only to more than physical only.
Great question, thanks for asking!December 29, 2020 at 4:51 pm #180928
In my opinion there’s not much worth watching on the show except for some cool technology here and there. Its totally scripted. Snowwalker prime
did some hilarious parodies of the show on his YouTube channel. Survivorman Bigfoot is 1000 times better from top to bottom.
