With 14 years of paranormal investigation experience, Tony Rathman is the founder and lead investigator for Entity Voices Paranormal Investigation (or EVPI), and he’s investigated hundreds of locations across the country, as well as overseas in Japan and the Philippines. He is also an EVP/ITC Specialist and along with his wife Cherie Rathman, Ron Yacovetti and Lourdes Gonzalez, they’ve developed an exciting new spirit communication technology known as Staticom. Based on the 40 years of work from Marcello Bacci, the Rathman’s continue to evolve and refine DRV (or direct radio voice) techniques for both longer, clearer and more understandable communication. They’ve since removed radio from the process, and so that’s why they’ve given this baby the new name — Staticom, which now communicates with only Broadband white noise. 2:03
