The government says it is a pure science research station, one intended to increase our understanding of the upper atmosphere. Deractors, as reporter O'Herra described, are not convinced. Some think it is a prototype for a "Star Wars" weapons system. Some think it will be used to control the weather. …
Many stories about the mystery of HAARP have been run in the press. These have appeared at every level, from Glennallen’s Copper River County Journal, to Popular Science Magazine, to the prestigious international publication Jane’s Defense Weekly. Yet for all this publicity, most Americans have never heard of HAARP. Mother Jones Magazine cited the construction of HAARP as one of the “Top Censored News Stories of 1994…..
One of HAARP’s distinctions is that it will be the world’s most powerful short-wave radio transmitter-only it will not be broadcasting for human ears. Its signal will be sent to the top of our atmosphere where it is intended to heat a portion of the sky, much like a microwave oven warms a frozen burrito. This type of transmitter is called an “ionospheric heater.”…..
The project’s completion is expected in 2002 …. Will cover a gravel pad some 33 acres in extent, with 180 antenna towers in a grid of 15 columns and 12 rows. … A metal screen stretches between the towers 15 feet above the ground. This forms a continuous reflector for the antennas. During the transmissions, the screen catches downward-directed radio frequency (RF) energy and re-direct it upwards. This intensifies the beam as well as helps to protect people and animals on the ground from the intense RF fields generated when the transmitters are in operation. On the ground there are 30 transmitter shelters. Each shelter houses 12 diesel-powered transmitters…. Each transmitter is capable of generating 10,000 watts of RF power. Together, these 360 transmitters can send 3.6 million watts of raw RF output to the antennas HAARP has a unique feature, a patented ability to focus these transmissions to into a single point high in the sky. This magnifies the output a thousand times, giving HAARP an effective radiated power in excess of 3.6 billion watts. This makes it 72,000 times more powerful than the largest commercial radio station in the US…..
The government’s official documents on HAARP are often contradictory and seem to be intentionally misleading.
