The mystery behind the H.A.A.R.P that spawned so many UFO stories has been declassified.
During WW1 the German Submarines bounced encrypted radio signals off the ionosphere.
By WW2 the HAARP operators were heating the Ionosphere to improve the signal reflectivity.
The HAARP operators had the best weather forecasts available to them and would start heating the ionosphere ahead of major weather events to better
facilitate emergency communications such as ship to shore and military radio.
During the early Arecibo years the stories got a boost from the secret friendly cold war communications between Russia and the US.
Later the FBI choreographed their Weather Underground Organization investi gatING in the late 60's.
The "Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)" was the pool the FBI drew from for the project.
So there is an interesting student link there dating back to 1959.
And the rabbit hole apparently goes even deeper than that, during the early 60's some of those students were given the choice between flying planes
into the world trade center towers or riding the train with Horace Lamb.
