A team of scientists from the Naval Research Laboratory, the Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL's) Research Vehicles Directorate, Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M., and the University of New Mexico (UNM) has detected the lowest frequency radar echo from the moon ever seen with earth-based receivers.
In the lunar echo experiment (more properly called a lunar bistatic radar experiment), the Air Force/Navy High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) high power transmitter, located near Gakona, Alaska, launched high power radio waves toward the moon. The reflected signal, weakened because of the long distance to the moon and back, was detected by receiving antennas in New Mexico.
My guess would be that as we venture out into space and soon maybe have a lunar colony or bases that we look for good ways to communicate more efficiently. Although many things with HAARP are unknown but if anyone can join up with the experient and report back that would be great. Know anyone with a HAM radio.
"One of the successful goals of this experiment was to demonstrate that the LWA can work with instruments like HAARP at lower frequencies than its nominal design."

You raise good ideas, bring the masses involment into the project, mayby hide a secondary signal piggy backing on the transmition. Who knows what sinister plans they have planned, maybe just to beams one giant ad on the surface of the moon so we can look at the coke -a -cola logo for eternity. A Floating billboard, now thats way out of the box.
Results of the first night
Thanks to all who participated on the first evening of this experiment. We have received over 550 reports from North America, Australia, Pacific islands, and from many European countries. All of the reports will be useful and ones that contain audio recordings and other recorded data sets will be especially valuable. Please don't forget the second night of the tests, 20 January UTC (see below). If possible, please also note your location and the type of antenna and receiving system you are using in your report.
