The site page is there, the coordinates for the site are there, and details of what they do on the site are there. 99% of what you see written about HARRP is science fiction IMHO.
Nine years after the Millennium bug went off like a damp squib, the New Year left a number of residents of a small enclave in deepest St Ouen suffering a technological hangover. They woke up one day to find that they were unable either to open or to close their cars with their electronic keys. No matter what they attempted, it seemed that something was jamming the signals.
Yaakobovitch blames the frequent occurrences on radio frequencies from Empire interfering with and jamming frequencies for computerized security systems on cars. Officials with the FCC and the Empire State Building say there no proof of that, but Yaakobovitch wonders how the vehicles seem to magically be perfectly fine after being moved out of the "dead zone."
By Thursday, virtually every new car dealership in the Bremerton-Port Orchard area was inundated with hundreds of similar calls from upset customers. The outage also affected unsold new cars sitting on their lots. The cause of the bizarre problem was — and still is — a mystery. No one so far has been able to explain why the remote keyless entry systems on nearly every vehicle in the Bremerton-Port Orchard suddenly stopped functioning at about the same time Wednesday afternoon and hasn't worked since. "It's strange," DeCamp said. "A lot of people are really upset." Speculation about the cause has ranged from solar flares to the Mir space station or possible interference from USS Carl Vinson or some other local Navy ship.
