Hi Guys and a very happy new year to one and all.
Although I am a 'newbie' to this site, I read with interest about the apparent 'going-ons' at Macrihanish.
I was stationed at Macrihanish for 9 months in the '70's. I worked for JARIC - out of Brampton. I was sent up to Macrihanish for a NATO exercise
called 'Northern Merger - Northern Gathering'. It simulated part of the US 'Reforger' tasking to reinforce europe during a Soviet invasion, using
Macrihanish as a forward Op base and Listening Post.
At this time - both we and the US had nuclear storage facilities on site, together with 'unspecified' SF forces - again mainly US and Brit, but also
a few French and Canadian paras. (For the ex only? Not sure)
We were billetted above ground but our facilities were underground in so called 'bomb-proof' rooms or buildings. To the best of my recollection,
there were no UFO related materiel or any research facilities of that nature there at that time and I had a top security clearance and was allowed in
to most of the facilities.
Sometime in the 80's, RAF Macrihanish was closed because Blackbirds no longer flew from there and there was no need to keep the base open. At the
time, the runway was 1.5 miles long. Sometime in the early 90's, the then government spent £11.5M extending the runway to 3 miles. (WHY?) (Why did a
dissused airfield need another 1.5 miles added to it's runway?)
Those in the know keep silent - and rightly so! Those who think they know -and I guess I am one of them - keep speculating until something finally
However, I do know something that sounds a little odd. Cast your minds back if you will, to that fateful day when a Chinook was flying across the
Mull, when it suddenly veered into the mountain. Now MOD (usually very slow at proportioning blame) suddenly says it WAS pilot error. Closer
investigation said that the Chinook was blown off course? What would cause that, I wonder? Could the answer be the mythical 'Aurora'?
Or, is Macrihanish being used as an emergency runway for the space shuttle. I have certainly heard that and that excuse/story would give some
credibility to the reason why SEAL/UDT personnel were on the site at specific times.
As to some claims that 'there are no thousands of troops' or that 'there are no military aircraft' at Macrihanish well, I can tell you there are!
Not thousands but a 'good few' - SAS, US SEAL, UDT's and a Coy of Rangers or Marine Recon.
Allegedly the Rangers/Recon patrol the inner perimeter whilst the SAS, SEAL and UDT's are off doing something nasty in Comanche or choppers. Am
awaiting confirmation from 'somebody on the inside'.
Incidently, not all radio traffic is audible. (My own unit used super encrypted, super-speed burst transmitting radios) We didn't need voice, didn't
need morse, didn't need super codes. Just typed in 'plain' and transmitted. The radio sent out on one frequency at our end, jumped through several
other frequencies then 'downloaded' to another frequency. Thus we 'talked' to whoever we wanted to and not a single traceable radio voice
So, is it possible to speak to people using a radio, without radio hams or ambulance chasers listening in? Yes it is. I know, I've done it!
If I learn any more, I'll certainly put it here.
Of course what you could do, is take a week to crawl to an excellent vantage point, 'dig in' a long term OP (with thermal shielding) and wait to see
Oh! Don't forget to take a bloody good camera with at least a 350mil lens.
(For all those shots of Aurora!)
