Thanks a lot, Mr. Wingo.


That's not fair. It's well within Mr. Wingo's rights to demand that his image and actions not be posted to public venues.

It would be different if Mr. Wingo had signed some sort of release permitting the publication of his image and words. Obviously, that was not obtained and he exercised his rights as a citizen.

I understand what you are saying. Of course it is his right. But it wasn't as though this video in itself made him look bad in any way. It didn't reveal any "dangerous" stuff, did it? (And he didn't seem to have any problem with the fact that he was being videotaped at the time.)

But now he is awfully busy trying to screw the lid very, very tight on this whole project. He acts like a man who suddely has a lot to hide.
And THAT makes him look bad. In my eyes, anyway.

As a self-described Video Expert (i.e. SAIT CTSR Grad) with 15 years of
high-end digital video experience, I am VERY INTERESTED in contributing to
the effort of converting these NASA tapes! - I have some expertise with
both 1 inch Sony and 2 inch AMPEX/Quad tape formats and am quite
familiar with methods such as BAKING older tape so that it can be played
back on such machines so the tape oxide doesn't flake off the polyester
substrate.

BUT......FOR YOUR INFORMATION ........

I NOW have a much better method to capture the archived NASA tapes and
am willing to do so for FREE. I have designed custom multi-processing
imaging software that OPTICALLY SCANS (using a microscope &
digital HDTV camera) the scanline imprints of each frame that has been
recorded on magnetic tape and by using my custom DSP (Digital Signal
Processing) algorithms I can recreate the waveforms of the analog
broadcast signal by converting the BITMAP SCANS of each analog video
frame into either 8-bit greyscale or 24 bit RGB colour image frames which
I can then convert into 4:4:4:4 Serial Digital video or 4:2:2 DV format or
MPEG2/MPEG4/DVD video at 720 by 480 pixels OR full 1920 by 1080p HDTV.

I just HAPPEN to know the recording head configuration and
scanline formatting of BOTH Sony 1" and AMPEX 2"/Quad tape formats
so I already have the conversion capability built-into my software.

IN ADDITION, I HAVE MANY, MANY TERABYTES OF DISK SPACE
so storage is NOT A PROBLEM!

So if any of you have the contact information for the people involved
or the contact information of the photographer, send them this message
and MY contact information so they can forward it to the right people
and get the ball rolling. I welcome phone calls because I CAN HELP !!!!!

I am willing to convert the tapes GRATIS, AT NO CHARGE,
AND THAT MEANS FREE!!!! using my NEW OPTICAL SCANNING METHOD
which DOES NOT physically use a playback head to touch the tape...
I do it by taking high resolution photos of the tape surface and using
software to scan the orientation and patterning of the tape particles
so as to find the frame boundaries on a frame-by-frame basis
which is then processed to interpret the video scan lines so I
then convert to a modern digital video file format.

I can also process out tape-based noise and magnetic particle
anomalies to get the CLEANEST possible image!

We can transfer older 35mm slide, Super-8/Regular-8 mm film
and 16mm FILM to Video transfers so that I can do too ... although
we DO CHARGE for THAT Service!

Send email to or phone me at to discus how I can get the NASA tapes
to me for conversion to various digital formats FOR FREE !!!!!!!!:

Now ZeroGhost is in the area... if he doesn't swing by for a look we need to wop him
. I mean here is the ATS team out at a UFO conference... and they are right next door to this breaking news?

What an opportunity
Anyway to reach them still?



Unfortunately, I have not had a gate pass for NASA for some time, and no time today catching up after the BAUFOE, but there is nothing out of the realm of possibilities for some investigative efforts.

If I had any time I would call Ames and ask if such a building does or once existed, and pin point that. Or call McDonalds Corporate to see if a branch ever exsisted and get details. Write a story and as a blogger, reporter whatever as questions that can easily get answers.

I would suggest framing any questions in such an investigation in very mundane interests for an article for a blog or write-up or simple school report few will see or care about. Don't raise flags. Just use your clump of neurons, be creative and get the truth.

OK, so I'm expecting an "wop", but burn from the weekend is ratcheting me to only dealing with business only and I'm not about to do anything but Google Earth the base for buildings and roofs.

On the side...

Had a GREAT time with Springer, D-Rabbit and Johnny A. this weekend. He's a great guy and him and the wonderfully crazy Dave Rabbit supplied lots of laughs.

BTW, Johnny has some surprise's for us all on the ranch ufo video material. Keep the ear to the rail. Big train coming! Whoo wooooo!

Thanks again Zorgon

Just a note:

The quality of an image on film has been and continues to be higher quality than is possible with a digital recording or still.

I still shoot on film for poster sized images and I have the best digital cameras available to me. I do that because the detail captured is far beyond what can be done with digital. There is no such thing as film quality images on the Internet and it is not physically possible to even scan at the resolution possible with film. In fact, I scan negatives at 4180 dpi optical and that is still not even close to capturing the details on the negative.

All we ever see on the net is digital or digitized images which are VERY low quality. To even get into the ballpark of film you have to go image sizes not yet used in consumer products.

The government has had film emulsions far beyond what I can buy for many decades, going back to late 60's. The ISO 25 film I've used is not even in the ballpark of what the government has had for a long, long time.

Digital, although new, is no where near an improvement in quality. I can pull out my old Sony High8 Camcorder or one of my old Nikon film cameras and get WAY better quality than anything that can be done with a digital camera. My digital DSLR's don't even approach what I can get on film.

Get this guy the tapes for crying out loud!

This is exactly the type of group effort that will get our birthright to truth going here. Just imagine the images of the moon inhabited by (?) we could get.

I'll have your baby if you do this SSG7!

Anyone got tubes they ain't using???
(I lost mine when I was a zygote.)

Seriously, "We the People" got the juice to power the ship to truth. StargateSG7's post proves such.



FREEDOM for TRUTH!

Can you please provide evidense to back up your claim that they had 'air brush' capability back then?



I have always maintained that they did it the 'old fashioned way'

Kinda like THIS

Just sent him all the info for Dennis and Steve... and I will forward the request to Steve as well. Hopefully Dr X is still 'lurking'

It appears however that this Dennis Wingo has no interest or intention of making any of the data available to the public, and even seems more interested in just making it work that any archiving of the material...

Since this imagery SHOULD be in the public domain as it was paid for by taxpayers this seems almost criminal to me... HE does not own those tapes. Perhaps a letter writing campaign to NASA to complain about these actions might go somewhere.

I wonder if any mainstream media would touch this one?

Well I have all the material that was presented archived... for 'posterity' but I expect I might get mail soon too. Though since Dennis' image is no where on the site since they pulled the video...


But I am sure the skeptics around here would be only to happy to see this material get buried again

If you are referring to sending info to me...I haven't received any email yet
which should be directed to henry@comwave.com - if necessary
phone me at 604-253-3990 ask for HENRY and we can discuss
how to get the tapes to me...I am here until 6:00 pm Pacific Time tonight.

Like I said in my earlier post I CAN HELP - I HAVE THE EQUIPMENT
AND THE SOFTWARE to convert those tapes and am WILLING to donate
my time and gear to converting those missing lunar orbiter tapes
to ensure public domain access to a vital piece of our history.

I am an Airbrush expert. I used several types and brands daily for illustrating from the 70's to the late 90's photo retouching, illustrating and such.

They where using airbrushes in the 20's. Just look at Art Deco works to see proof.

Do you know what air brushing is? It's using an airbrush. Not a computer. Therefore they airbrused them with real airbrushes back then, now they'll just use Photoshop to hide all the bases and mining sites.

I was one of the first digital illustrators airbrushing, really. 1983. I was even paid to author a report to a company publishing digital software (TimeArts Inc) that explained how to emulate airbrush paint for digital. I bet NASA/SecretSpaceControl, used digital well before we got it.

NASA had Walkman Cassette players in 1969. Do thuh math. No telling what they already have. Indications are way more than we can even guess. And, I can guess a lot!

Yes but on photos? In Photoshop?




In other news....

Posted from email.... next step in the process..

Thank You for the contact information....I will give him a ring tomorrow when I'm back in the office and send him a comprehensive report on what I envisage with my optical scanning and software image processing technique.

Basically what I do is put the magnetic tape reels onto a slow-moving spindle that moves at a few millimetres per second so as to give enough time for a 1024 by 1024 pixel RGB 60 fps digital camera attached to a high-quality optical magnifier to scan the tape by STITCHING multiple photos into a large bitmap that constitutes the frame boundaries of an analog Video waveform. (I can do digitally encoded frames too). That large bitmap is then scanned using my software using technology similar to Optical Character Recognition (OCR) where I can change the Greyscale/YIQ/YUV/YDbDr scanline information that is likely to be on the NASA tapes into an uncompressed 720 by 480 pixel RGB video frame or to a super-sampled 1920 by 1080 pixel progressive RGB HDTV frame that can then be converted to any modern digital video format that I want.

And I estimate the storage of uncompressed video based upon the number of reels strewn about in the McDonalds photos, to be almost one Petabyte (1000 Terabytes) of data, which is NOT a problem for me, it's just a matter of buying enough extra hard drives to hold it all on a more permanent basis. I've already got almost two petabytes of off-line digital storage so another petabyte ain't gonna hurt me.

The biggest problem is the quality of the original tapes themselves...tape oxide DETERIORATES over time and my biggest worry is it flaking away from the polyester substrate and the only way to fix that is to BAKE the tape in an oven to harden it and then play it ONLY ONCE through my apparatus in order to get a clean optical-scan transfer.

I have NO IDEA as to the current condition of the NASA tapes so I can only speculate as to what needs done thus I would need a sample tape to test the quality of transfer...If the tape itself is good, then the transfer I do will
be equal to the original recording and since I can filter out magnetic tape noise, I might even get close to the quality of the original space-to-ground broadcast.

If some people, who have speculated that the tapes are DIGITALLY ENCODED, are correct, I can ALSO transfer that using my OPTICAL SCAN method and since all I need to know is the width, height and greyscale/colour
format of the pixels, I'll be able to convert the probably PCM-based (Pulse Coded Modulation) picture frames into absolute digital clarity. If it's digital we might be able to get some really AWESOME quality video footage.

Hopefully I can still get a hold of Dennis Wingo to get the ball rolling.

Just so I don't get your hopes up too high, please be aware this might
take a week or more in order to to get replies and talk on the phone.
So don't expect a miracle tomorrow but I will do my best...!!!

You can post this email on ATS or forward to others who are interested
if you want so as to possibly spark some mainstream media interest.

Thanks

Yes the one thaty Jhon lear(i think it was him)? that talked about in his speeches.

He talked of tunneling machines, that basicly liquified the rock, leaving a smooth almost glassy surface.

I was shocked when i saw 2 goverment Patents for these excatc machines.

For the life of me I can't access (or smoke) whatever you are accessing (or smoking) guys. That's for the OP! Hello there!


Can't seem to follow that Flickr comment thread or even access the photos because they have been made private now.
Why do I get the sense those pics were not intended for public consumption?
Apart from that, this is an interesting guy (Jurvetson) and his The Dichotomy of Design and Evolution (scroll down in the blog, its from 2006) raised my brow. The area of scientific research he analyzes is IMO the best candidate for making something truly alien out of our normal everyday technology, because it seems nature works that way. Hence there is chance that a project Blue Beam might even actually exist after all.
Now concerning this nanotech guy's supposed interest in high definition maps of the moon, I guess he could be, but I have yet to see the evidence and the connection for reasons I explained above.

How NASA films ended up in an abandoned McDonald's, who found this, where are they now. Although I wouldn't trust a "lost and found" archive to show me the "light" evidence of structures in the moon guys. It would be quite romantic but, it would scream fabricated hoax.

Find me the links for the photos and descriptions of events and you get a star and a flag.
