I have read Many discussions over the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program of the Defense Advanced Research Agency...
As well as doing my own research on the matter, and the Physics Involved.
This, is the Story of what I have Discovered.
This is the HAARP facility in Alaska.
The HAARP Facility is a Large Phased Antenna Array.
A Phased Antenna array is a set of antennas grouped in a grid (as shown in the picture).
The TIMING of the wave cycles emitted from each Antenna can be controlled to produce a gradient distributed delay.
This sets up a pattern of interference that causes most of the energy of the broadcast to be focused in direction relative to the timing.
In wave theory, a phased array is a group of antennas in which the relative phases of the respective signals feeding the antennas are varied in
such a way that the effective radiation pattern of the array is reinforced in a desired direction and suppressed in undesired directions.
Now... the Stated Goal of HAARP is to study the ionosphere, and I have little doubt that the purpose of the study was to map the precise beam
direction changes caused by the phenomenon of Ionospheric Refraction.
(Or, Reflection if you prefer)
This effect occurs due to the different speed of light through various layers of the ionosphere.
The ionosphere's charge varies with layer from the mesosphere.
Since the radio wave is FASTER on top, than the bottom as it rises through the ionosphere, it will eventually curve back downwards, and strike the
Therefore, the HAARP facility is capable of projecting a Coherent Beam of Electromagnetic Radiation onto any spot on the earth that surrounds it for a
The distance is Dependant upon beam angle, and the height of the ionospheric reflection at the specific frequency.
About 50-200 kilometers.
So, using Ionospheric reflection, HAARP can cast a semi-coherent beam of electromagnetic radiation a great distance.
Now, it Gets Freaky!
Is the Van Allen Radiation Belt.
A Cavity Region of Hydrogen plasma, separated by Charge/Mass.
These "Shells" are the rough outlines of the Orbital paths of these subatomic particles, given gravitation, charge, and magnetic coupling.
IT is, essentially a charged particle Resonance cavity that is shaped like a doughnut around the earth (twice)
Since the Charge density increases towards the center of the Belt... the same Ionic refraction from earlier ALSO applies... this would in theory,
give HAARP a MUCH longer Range than just bouncing off the ionosphere, since it is several orders of magnitude farther away.
This is a problem for beam diffusion, unless very high frequencies are used.
Furthermore, Since the Van Allen Radiation belts are, for all intents and purposes... nearly PERFECT plasma resonance cavities...
The frequency of a circular resonance cavity is Dependant upon the speed of the wave through the propagation material, and its total distance.
You have heard that a photon can circle the earth 7 times in one second?
Yeah... it's actually more like 7.83 times per second.
Which is the Schumann Resonance frequency.
7.83 cycles per second...
This puts it in the far radio end of the spectrum.
This charge differential, which we call lightning, is a series of progressive charge steps between the Electron Rich Outer Van Allen Belt, and the
Electron Poor Earth.
(High energy plasmas from solar winds that have their electrons stripped off by the Magnetosphere, as their protons spiral inward, which creates the
charge imbalance. Also Cosmic ray induced Neutron Production and subsequent decay into a proton near the earths upper atmosphere.)
You could think of it like a Plasma Globe... but in reverse.
This lightning (Short Circuit) produces an EM pulse across the visible spectrum, as the ions in the path of the current flow reach an EXTREMELY HIGH
energy level, and radiate at their Blackbody temperatures as they cool down.
Now.... back to HAARP.
A Plasma Torus (doughnut / Hoop) that is contained in a vacuum (space) can be exited by radiation at the frequency that excites the plasma.
Or, at the resonance frequency of the Cavity of that material.
For a Torus the size of the Inner Van Allen belt, this would be below 2 cycles per second.
Our own personal Photon Spheres.
They Sing, you know...
Sorry.... Tangent... Back to HAARP
Since HAARP is capable of generating a fairly controllable beam of Radiation and reflecting it to almost any place on the globe...
It should be no trouble at all to create a near microwave frequency "Display" that heats the surface of the water in a rotating pattern, in order to
induce the creation of rising Thermals, that spin around a cold vortex.
Shaped Kinda like this, actually:
Of course... the only way that a HAARP like beam would manifest itself in the sky like that... is if it was being destructively interfered with by
another projected wave that was 180 degrees out of sync with the original.
This would create a thin, highly excited region between both of the emissions.
HAARP produces a coherent beam of energy. This is not true. In a coherent beam (laser, maser), all of the energy produced is in phase. That is not the
case with HAARP. The IRI produces a somewhat directional beam of HF radio energy. It is not coherent. coherence
In the next paragraph you contradict yourself (now it's a "semi-coherent" beam, but it's not even that). You claim this beam is reflected by the
ionosphere. The purpose of the IRI is not to reflect radio signals off of the ionosphere. It is to have the HF radio energy absorbed by the
ionosphere and heat a volume of it. That is why it is called an ionospheric heater. If the beam were reflected, it would not do what it is supposed to
HAARP can reflect its beam to almost anyplace on the globe. Even if the purpose of the heater beam was to be reflected (it is not), it could not be
reflected to anywhere on Earth. The maximum deflection of the beam from vertical is 30º. We know that the angle of reflection is equal to the angle
of incidence. This means that, at most, a reflected beam from HAARP would end up 60º from Gakona. Reflected from an altitude of 200 km, that hardly
amounts to "anywhere on the globe" and certainly not the White Sea. Because the world is round...it gets a bit more problematic.
It's no trouble to produce a "near microwave frequency 'display'". The IRI transmits high frequency radio at between 2.8 and 10MHz (107m to 20m).
Microwaves are in the hundred gigahertz range (less than 3mm), thousands of times shorter wavelengths than what HAARP produces. HAARP does not use
microwaves. Another thing to note (though it is somewhat irrelevant) is that microwaves do not reflect well off of the ionosphere, they punch right
through it. If they did reflect, there would have to be a lot fewer cell phone towers all over the place. Microwaves are line of sight.
HAARP did not, and cannot, produce anything like the Norway spiral. Never mind the fact that the spiral occurred well outside the atmosphere. No
thermals, not a whole lot of water vapor.
Not really a lot (in comparison to other DOD funded projects) has been spent. A lot has been learned about what goes on in the ionosphere. Some of it
has the potential of producing methods of protecting our assets from geomagnetic activity. Some of it has the potential of protecting our military
assets from the prying eyes of our enemies. Some of the early ideas haven't panned out but some new possibilities have arisen. It really is pure
scientific research at its best. None of it really translates well to weaponry as such. The problem is that it is pretty complex science that doesn't
translate to "nuts and bolts" stuff that is easy to explain.
Here's a "sampler" (as of a few years ago). There are hundreds of papers, written by hundreds of scientists from universities and other
institutions all over the world. HAARP is a research facility. A good one. www.gi.alaska.edu...
Poker Flat is hardly a secret. It is not even operated by the government.
Poker Flat Research Range is the world's only scientific rocket launching facility owned by a university. Poker Flat is located approximately 30
miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska and is operated by the University of Alaska's Geophysical Institute under contract to NASA's Wallops Flight
Facility, which is part of the Goddard Space Flight Center. In addition to launching sounding rockets, Poker Flat is home to many scientific
instruments designed to study the arctic atmosphere and ionosphere.
HAARP and Poker Flat have engaged in cooperative research projects. HAARP has radar which is used to watch the rockets launched from Poker Flat. Poker
Flat has radar which is used to study the effects of HAARP's IRI.
HAARP produces a coherent beam of energy. This is not true....
In the next paragraph you contradict yourself (now it's a "semi-coherent" beam
Yeah... I should proofread better... I know.
but it's not even that
So... the pattern of In-phase wave fronts that coalesce into a narrow focus is.... Not Coherent?
I was under the assumption that Additive interference both requires and implies coherence of the Electromagnetic Waves...
Otherwise they would cancel out.
You claim this beam is reflected by the ionosphere. The purpose of the IRI is not to reflect radio signals off of the ionosphere.
It is also not the purpose of a Wrench to hammer in a nail... but it still works as such.
Atmospheric reFRACTION is a bending of light through a medium of varying refractive index.
Ionized layers of the atmosphere HAVE such properties. and Refract electromagnetic waves in this fashion.
HAARP can reflect its beam to almost anyplace on the globe. Even if the purpose of the heater beam was to be reflected (it is not), it could
not be reflected to anywhere on Earth. The maximum deflection of the beam from vertical is 30º. We know that the angle of reflection is equal to the
angle of incidence. This means that, at most, a reflected beam from HAARP would end up 60º from Gakona. Reflected from an altitude of 200
I think I already covered this when speaking of the Van Allen radiation belts.... I put a picture there and everything!
Because the world is round...it gets a bit more problematic.
Yeah.... you might have to use multiple "Grazing" bounces off the ionosphere to make it that far past the horizon....
But the Van Allen Radiation belt is MUCH higher... several Earth Radii, in fact.
It's no trouble to produce a "near microwave frequency 'display'". The IRI transmits high frequency radio at between 2.8 and 10MHz (107m
to 20m). Microwaves are in the hundred gigahertz range (less than 3mm), thousands of times shorter wavelengths than what HAARP produces. HAARP does
not use microwaves. Another thing to note (though it is somewhat irrelevant) is that microwaves do not reflect well off of the ionosphere, they punch
right through it. If they did reflect, there would have to be a lot fewer cell phone towers all over the place. Microwaves are line of sight.
Is shortwave Radio not "Near" microwave?
Couple hundred thousand cycles per second WILL refract off the ionosphere...
Microwave gets bent a little... but not much.
it could not be reflected to anywhere on Earth. The maximum deflection of the beam from vertical is 30º
I guess that's why they are scattered across the globe then?
HAARP did not, and cannot, produce anything like the Norway spiral.
It Lacks the Capability to project radio waves in spiral patterns?
Phased synchronisation produces pulses of phase reinforced energy. When the signals from the individual transmitters are in phase the signal is
reinforced. But there is no continuous synchronization, at times it is synchronized and at times it is not. This is different from a truly coherent
beam which is essentially a single wave of electromagnetic radiation. A coherent beam does not spread unless it passes through a medium which diffuses
it. It maintains its energy. The beam from a phased array spreads appreciably, losing energy as it does so.
A wrench makes a lousy hammer. The ionosphere is an unstable and highly variable environment. Its refractive characteristics are unpredictable. Where
are these "grazing" bounces going to occur? Between the ionosphere and Earth's surface? Between the layers of the ionosphere? Out of the dark side
of the ionosphere, through to the highly energized day side? And these multiple bounces are going to occur without attenuation?
No, shortwave radio is not "near" microwave. As I said, it is of thousands of times longer wavelengths. Tens of megahertz for HF frequencies as
compared to hundreds of gigahertz for microwaves.
The animation you show is not radiation from the HAARP transmitter. It represents the propagation of secondary ELF radiation induced by HAARPs IRI
(above Gakona). The simulation shows how vertical lines of magnetic force in the Earth's magnetic field act as a waveguide.
The time varying current launches waves both up and down the Earth's magnetic field. In the simulations shown here, we start with a time-varying
current and study the downward propagating waves and how they couple into the Earth-ionospheric wave guide.
Did you notice the time span of the simulation? Three thousand nanoseconds. That's 0.000003 seconds to cover the width of Alaska. Does that sound
like the Norway spiral? ELF radiation is even farther from microwave radiation than HF. Pretty low energy stuff. It's not very good for heating
anything (in or out of the atmosphere) and the best HAARP has been able to produce by "wiggling" the electrojet is about 30 watts (on a good day).
There seems to be a saturation effect. www.vlf.ece.ufl.edu...
HAARP, with all its transmitters operating, can produce a maximum of 3.6MW. At the surface that is spread over an area of about 33 acres. This yields
a power density of 2.5 watts per square foot. That isn't going to warm cold toast.
At an altitude of 100 km the beam has spread to an area of 247,000 acres and has a power density of about .0002 watts per square foot.
But there is no continuous synchronization, at times it is synchronized and at times it is not.
Yes... this is why Semi-Coherent is more correct than coherent... I think we already discussed this earlier.
This is different from a truly coherent beam which is essentially a single wave of electromagnetic radiation. A coherent beam does not spread
unless it passes through a medium which diffuses it.
I'm afraid that you are wrong there....
Lasers spread through beam divergence, and I'm sure that you are aware of the phenomenon.
IT is Dependant upon wavelength.
A wrench makes a lousy hammer.
Yeah... but it gets the job DONE.
The ionosphere is an unstable and highly variable environment. Its refractive characteristics are unpredictable.
Hardly. We know that the ionosphere and the wave propagation height changes on a daily cycle, influenced by the changing position of the sun relative
to the earth.
I mean... we CAN predict its actions...
Not with the GREATEST reliability.... but we Can.
Where are these "grazing" bounces going to occur? Between the ionosphere and Earth's surface?
Er... inside Both.
The refraction of waves occurs due to the changing speed of light in the different layers of the ionosphere.
The top of the wave moves faster than the bottom... so, it curves back.
And these multiple bounces are going to occur without attenuation?
That's impossible, and you know it.
No, shortwave radio is not "near" microwave.
Compared to the REST of the electromagnetic spectrum... *IT IS*
Do you see the word "Radio" next to the word "Microwave"?
Would you say that they are nearer to each-other than say... Radio and Gamma?
The animation you show is not radiation from the HAARP transmitter. It represents the propagation of secondary ELF radiation induced by HAARPs
IRI (above Gakona).
So, you are saying that it couldn't POSSIBLY look like a spiral, because it is not the HARP FIELD that produces the spiral, but merely an atmospheric
effect OF the harp emissions?
Which looks like a spiral?
Did you notice the time span of the simulation?
Did you notice the frequency?
That's 0.000003 seconds to cover the width of Alaska. Does that sound like the Norway spiral?
You do realize that light is a rather fast little guy, right?
The heated region is typically at 75 km (though this depends upon the carrier frequency) and can be 30 km in diameter and a few km thick.
Viewed from above (see Figure 1b) the heated region is a roughly circular patch.
Yeah.... thanks for the links!
so, basically what HAARP is saying, is that radiation at a certain frequency, that is projected into the ionosphere will create a rotating Circular
area of charged plasma, that emits energy in the electromagnetic spectrum!
WOW, SO COOL!
That would make kind of a.... spiral... pattern... wouldn't it?
HAARP, with all its transmitters operating, can produce a maximum of 3.6MW
Are you trying to tell me that those metal bars can only transmit at a certain power level?
They couldn't possibly.... I dont know... use a LARGER GENERATOR?
Are you saying that they couldn't *THEORETICALLY* just run more juice through the radio circuit?
I'm pretty sure that I have seen Helicon Antennas with a power outputs of much higher than that... and they were smaller.
Yeah... and there are around 140 antennas in that array... meaning that each element would only be producing like 25 kilowatts.
Are you trying to tell me that *THAT* is the maximum possible power that can be pumped through an antenna?
Because YOU know that is not true.
At an altitude of 100 km the beam has spread to an area of 247,000 acres and has a power density of about .0002 watts per square foot.
And what is the power density at that distance if each transmitter is measured in megawatts, instead of kilowatts?
Compared to the size of the Milky Way, the Solar System is "near" Centauri. We aren't talking about the entire electromagnetic spectrum, we
are talking about radio frequencies. Within the spectrum of radio frequencies microwaves are not close to high frequency. HAARP does not transmit
microwaves, visible light, or gamma rays. static.howstuffworks.com...
Once again, the simulation does not show atmospheric effects. It shows the propagation of ELF radiation outward from the area in the ionosphere where
it is produced. Did the Norway spiral spread at the speed of light?
No, HAARP does not create a "rotating circular area of charged plasma". It creates a roughly circular area of heated ions (which are pre-existing,
the heater just warms them up). The affected area of the ionosphere does not rotate. When the electrojet encounters this area it undergoes slight
changes, it "wiggles". It is the electrojet, not the affected area of the ionosphere which produces the ELF radiation. By modulating the heater
signal, the affected area induces ELF radiation by the electrojet.
Periodic heating of the ionospheric region through which these currents flow with an HF transmitter modulates the conductivity of the region and,
in turn, modulates these naturally-forming (and pre-existing) currents, constituting what amounts to a giant radiating antenna at »60-100 km
There are 180 antennas in the array. Each antenna is driven by two transmitters. Each transmitter can produce 10kW. www.haarp.alaska.edu...
Increasing power input to the transmitters will not increase power output, that is not how transmitters work. HAARP's maximum is 3.6MW.
Oh, and just to ADD to my previous articles.... there is this effect known as "AIRGLOW" when the Air.. glows:
Scientific experiments have been conducted to induce airglow by directing high-power radio emissions at the Earth's ionosphere. These
radiowaves interact with the ionosphere to induce faint but visible optical light at specific wavelengths under certain conditions.
Well, ain't that interesting... Radio Waves... FROM HAARP, produce atmospheric illumination....
Isn't that interesting?
Two images of the sky over the HAARP Gakona Facility using the NRL-cooled CCD imager at 557.7 nm. The field of view is approximately 38°. The
left-hand image shows the background star field with the HF transmitter off. The right-hand image was taken 63 seconds later with the HF transmitter
on. Structure is evident in the emission region.
I find that FASCINATING!
Thanks for helping me to Forge and Temper my Argument!
Please tell me more about radio waves with periods of hours or days. That's something I was not aware of.
Radiation spreads. In the presence of magnetic fields, the ELF radiation is guided by those fields. The simulation is not showing changes to the
atmosphere, it is not an atmospheric effect. It is showing the patterns that the ELF radiation follows as it propagates from its source. The ELF
radiation is not affecting the atmosphere and it certainly does not produce visible effects.
You just said that HAARP produces a display similar to one that *I* just said that it did...
I know what ions are. I know what plasma is. Please show me where I said that HAARP produces a display of any sort.
so, basically what HAARP is saying, is that radiation at a certain frequency, that is projected into the ionosphere will create a rotating
Circular area of charged plasma, that emits energy in the electromagnetic spectrum!
The area affected by HAARP does not rotate. But you are correct, the Norway spiral did not rotate either. The effluent from the rocket expanded
radially from its source, at the speed at which it was ejected.
So, you start with a few real facts about HAARP but then you start working in circles. When shown that the facts do not fit your idea you resort to
speculating about its "true" capabilities in order to "prove" that it can do what you think it can do. A Nuclear reactor? In Alaska? Northern
Canada? Maybe a secret reactor built just to power HAARP? If that's the case why is HAARP not a classified facility? The hundreds of scientists
(from around the world) and students who work there know the equipment. Why would they be allowed to work in such a secretive environment? Why would
they be allowed to publish detailed articles about what they do? Try to find the same volume of publicly available work published from a truly secret
facility, like this one for example.
