Let me start by saying the Ashtar thing ,in general, is moonshine however, the so called "student prank" in Britain was no "student prank" and the
official report was full of even more BS than the actual message.
There use to be a thread where I went into as much detail as I can remember as I both heard the transmission and was part of an investigation into the
incident. The so called students, according to the police at the time were charged with some offence and supposedly, appeared in Southampton Crown
Court to face charges. On investigation, no records could be found of any such hearing/trial taking place. Furthermore, the transmission did not just
take out one transmitter it took out 3-4 covering the an area South of the Thames, from Reading to the coast. What is more, the TV station's own
engineers had no idea the broadcast had been hijacked until they started receiving phone calls demanding to know what was happening.
The suspicion was that, it was a deliberate hoax by some party working for the government to test how a large area and population would react to it,
as it was something that they feared Eastern Block agitators might try in a time of crisis.
