Hiya Donna. We do sometimes record while walking around, but seldom. We usually sit in silence, or one person asks questions periodicaly in a loud, clear voice. There are a couple of reasons why some EVPs sound very noisy:

1. Our recording equipment is quite sensitive, and will pick up EVERY noise, including noises in other rooms, or even outside.
2. Some of our EVPs are boosted. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to boost the voice without boosting the white noise in the background.
3. Although we usually record in silence (or as close to it as we can get), we've found that the spirits sometimes are more apt to make their presence known verbally when we are taking a break, talking and laughing.

Obtaining EVPs is very difficult, and you have to have absolute control over your environment to authenticate them. That means that every single noise,whether it be a giggle, a yawn, a sigh, or a squeaking of your shoe, must be pointed out by the investigators present at the time with a loud, clear, exclamation of "that was me!" It's easier to work in small groups for this reason.

As a last note, if we have any doubt that an anomaly may be the voice of the one of the investigators present, we do not post it. I hope this answers your question.
