I would like to put to other ATS members a strange coincidence to Iridium and the above thread.
There are way too many coincidences to simply pass this off.
I think this factors highly in what is going on globally regarding the animal mass deaths and the geological changes. I may be wrong but here we are:-

Iridium is the chemical element with atomic number 77.

Iridium satellite constellation, a constellation of satellites used to provide voice and data coverage
en.wikipedia.org...

The Iridium satellite constellation is a large group of satellites providing voice and data coverage to satellite phones, pagers and integrated transceivers over Earth's entire surface. Iridium Communications Inc. owns and operates the constellation and sells equipment and access to its services.

The constellation operates 66 active satellites in orbit to complete its constellation and additional spare satellites are kept in-orbit to serve in case of failure.[1] Satellites are in low Earth orbit at a height of approximately 485 mi (781 km) and inclination of 86.4°. Orbital velocity of the satellites is approximately 17,000 mph (27,000 km/h). Satellites communicate with neighboring satellites via Ka band inter-satellite links. Each satellite can have four inter-satellite links: two to neighbors fore and aft in the same orbital plane, and two to satellites in neighboring planes to either side. The satellites orbit from pole to pole with an orbit of roughly 100 minutes. This design means that there is excellent satellite visibility and service coverage at the North and South poles, where there are few customers. The over-the-pole orbital design produces "seams" where satellites in counter-rotating planes next to one another are traveling in opposite directions. Cross-seam inter-satellite link hand-offs would have to happen very rapidly and cope with large Doppler shifts; therefore, Iridium supports inter-satellite links only between satellites orbiting in the same direction.




Iridium Communications Inc., the company that operates the satellite constellation
en.wikipedia.org...


Iridium Communications Inc. (formerly Iridium Satellite LLC) is a company, based in McLean, VA, United States which operates the Iridium satellite constellation, a system of 66 active satellites used for worldwide voice and data communication from hand-held satellite phones and other transceiver units. The Iridium network is unique in that it covers the whole Earth, including poles, oceans and airways. The company derives its name from the chemical element iridium. The number of satellites projected in the early stages of planning was 77, the atomic number of iridium, evoking the metaphor of 77 electrons orbiting the nucleus.

The satellites are frequently visible in the night sky as satellite flares, a phenomenon typically observed as short-lived bright flashes of light.
Iridium SSC, Iridium communications service was launched on November 1, 1998. The first Iridium call was made by then-Vice President of the United States Al Gore.[1] Motorola provided the technology and major financial backing.[2] The logo of the company was designed by Landor Associates, and represents the Big Dipper.[3]
On February 10, 2009, Iridium 33 collided with a defunct Russian satellite, Kosmos 2251, 800 km over Siberia.[10] A pair of massive debris clouds was created.[11] However, it should be noted that Iridium does have spare operational satellites and it was anticipated that some satellites would fail during the ordinary lifetime of the constellation.

Present statusIridium Satellite LLC has approximately 320,000 subscribers as of the end of December 2008 (compared to 203,000 in July 2007). Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2008 was US $76.8 million with EBITDA of US $25.0 million.[12]

The system is being used extensively by the U.S. Department of Defense through the DoD gateway in Hawaii.[13] The DoD pays $36 million a year for unlimited access for up to 20,000 users.[14] An investigation was begun into the DoD contract after a protest by Globalstar, to the U.S. General Accounting Office that no tender was provided. The investigation was suspended at the request of the Department of Defense, who cited national security reasons.[15]

The commercial gateway in Tempe, Arizona, provides voice, data, and paging services for commercial customers on a global basis. Typical customers include maritime, aviation, government, the petroleum industry, scientists, and frequent world travelers.

Iridium satellites are now an essential component of communications with remote science camps, especially the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. As of December 2006, an array of twelve Iridium modems was put online, providing continuous data services to the station for the first time. Total bandwidth is 28.8 kbit/s.[16]

The Iridium system requires 66 active satellites in orbit to complete its constellation and spare satellites are kept in-orbit to serve in case of failure. The satellites are in six polar low Earth orbital planes at a height of approximately 485 miles (780 km). Satellites communicate with neighboring satellites via Ka band intersatellite links to relay communications to and from ground stations. Most of these satellites were launched in the late 1990s before the company went through bankruptcy. Since the bankruptcy, only seven additional satellites have been launched but an updated constellation of 66 satellites is currently being developed and is planned for launch in 2015-2017 on SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch Vehicles from Vandenberg AFB Space Launch Complex 3 in California.[17]









Iridium-192
en.wikipedia.org...

Iridium ( /ɪˈrɪdiəm/ i-RID-ee-əm) is the chemical element with atomic number 77, and is represented by the symbol Ir. A very hard, brittle, silvery-white transition metal of the platinum family, iridium is the second densest element (after osmium) and is the most corrosion-resistant metal, even at temperatures as high as 2000 °C. Although only certain molten salts and halogens are corrosive to solid iridium, finely divided iridium dust is much more reactive and can be flammable.

Iridium was discovered in 1803 among insoluble impurities in natural platinum. Smithson Tennant, the primary discoverer, named the iridium for the goddess Iris, personification of the rainbow, because of the striking and diverse colors of its salts. Iridium is one of the rarest elements in the Earth's crust, with annual production and consumption of only three tonnes. 191Ir and 193Ir are the only two naturally occurring isotopes of iridium as well as the only stable isotopes; the latter is the more abundant of the two.

The most important iridium compounds in use are the salts and acids it forms with chlorine, though iridium also forms a number of organometallic compounds used in industrial catalysis, and in research. Iridium metal is employed when high corrosion resistance at high temperatures is needed, as in high-end spark plugs, crucibles for recrystallization of semiconductors at high temperatures, and electrodes for the production of chlorine in the chloralkali process. Iridium radioisotopes are used in some radioisotope thermoelectric generators.

The unusually high abundance of iridium in the clay layer at the K–T geologic boundary gave rise to the Alvarez hypothesis that the impact of a massive extraterrestrial object caused the extinction of dinosaurs and many other species 65 million years ago. Iridium is found in meteorites with an abundance much higher than its average abundance in the Earth's crust. It is thought that the total amount of iridium in the planet Earth is much higher than that observed in crustal rocks, but as with other platinum group metals, the high density and tendency of iridium to bond with iron caused most iridium to descend below the crust when the planet was young and still molten.

CHECK THIS OUT


Technical details[edit] Air interfaceCommunication between satellites and handsets is done using a TDMA and FDMA based system using L-band spectrum between 1616 and 1626.5 MHz.[30] Iridium exclusively controls 7.775 MHz of this and shares a further 0.95 MHz. In 1999 Iridium agreed to timeshare a portion of spectrum, allowing radio astronomers to observe hydroxyl emissions; the amount of shared spectrum was recently reduced from 2.625 MHz.[31][32]

The type of modulation used is normally DE-QPSK, although DE-BPSK is used on the uplink (mobile to satellite) for acquisition and synchronization.[33] Each time slot is 8.28 ms long and sits in a 90 ms frame. Within each FDMA channel there are four TDMA time slots in each direction.[34] The TDMA frame starts off with a 20.32 ms period used for simplex messaging to devices such as pagers and to alert Iridium phones of an incoming call, followed by the four upstream slots and four downstream slots. This technique is known as time division multiplexing. Small guard periods are used between time slots. Regardless of the modulation method being used, communication between mobile units and satellites is performed at 25 kilobaud.

Channels are spaced at 41.666 kHz and each channel occupies a bandwidth of 31.5 kHz; this allows space for Doppler shifts.[
Coincidence?
Checkout the locations????
Earth base-stations
A Motorola 9500 phoneIridium routes phone calls through space. In addition to communicating with the satellite phones in its footprint, each satellite in the constellation also maintains contact with two to four adjacent satellites, and routes data between them, to effectively create a large mesh network. There are four earth stations which link to the network through the satellites visible to them. The space-based backhaul routes outgoing phone call packets through space to one of the earth station downlinks ("feeder links"). Station-to-station calls from one satellite phone to another can be routed directly through space without going through an earth station. As satellites leave the area of an earth station, the routing tables are updated and packets headed for the earth station are forwarded to the next satellite just coming into view of the earth station. Communication between satellites and earth stations is at 20 and 30 GHz.[36]

Gateways are located in

Tempe, Arizona
Wahiawa, Hawaii — owned by DISA[37]
Avezzano, Italy
The pre-bankruptcy corporate incarnation of Iridium built eleven gateways, many of which have since been closed.[38] Gateways have also been built in Pune (India), Beijing (People's Republic of China), Moscow (Russia), Nagano (Japan), Seoul (South Korea), Taipei (Taiwan), Jeddah (Saudia Arabia) and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).

Other technical informationLike other satellite networks, Iridium terminals need open line-of-sight to open sky in order to function. For instance, units will not work consistently indoors, or under forest cover. Iridium does have a very powerful paging channel that can ring the phone indoors, but the customer may have to walk outdoors to take the call.

There is a Web/e-mail to SMS gateway which enables messages to be sent from the Internet or an e-mail account to Iridium handsets for free. There is also a voice mail service.

Iridium generally does not have roaming agreements with terrestrial/cellular operators. Telstra in Australia allows postpay GSM subscribers to use their SIM card. However, global roaming has to be activated and both incoming and outgoing calls are charged to this account, and the call rate is around US$4 per minute; the incoming calls are via the GSM phone number of the account, with country code, etc., prefixed. In order to use the network, it is necessary to have not only appropriate equipment, such as a handset or the optional cellular cassette for the Motorola 9505 phone, but also a pay-as-you-go or contract Iridium SIM card.

[edit] Tracking transceiver unitsWithout an extra GNSS receiver tracking is difficult, but not impossible, as the position of a mobile unit can be determined using a Doppler shift calculation from the satellite. These readings however can be inaccurate with errors in the tens of kilometers.[29] Even without using Doppler shifts, a rough indication of a unit's position can be found by checking the location of the spot-beam being used and the mobile unit's timing advance.

The position readings can be extracted from some transceiver units and the 9505A handset using the -MSGEO AT command.[39] In the past, Iridium has used this method of tracking to block service to U.S. embargoed countries, such as North Korea and other politically unpopular regions, such as Northern Sri Lanka. It is also used to stop geographically bounded plans from being used outside the designated area

I meant, could you explain your hypothesis in very simple words? Now it is just a lot of technical data and I can't make any sense of it. Make it into something like: "I belive that when XX started XX the fenomena XX started to happen. Then when XX was added the result was XX". Get what I mean?

Im simply putting it to you. I think that we must rule this out as a possible cause.

Im assuming that you have read "all" of the above in the OP and its links word for word?
There is a signal that passes from satalite to mobiles and internet connections that is a fact, so assuming that im correct am i right to assume that this could be a possible cause for the recent die offs through altered frequencies or an existing signal to be boosted or amplified or suddenly more turned on. If you check the data supplied you will see that the signal has coincidences to locations and times of the die offs.

Have you even read anything ive posted?

I think the link between the die offs/magnetometer/iridum is definately a good link. I think the biggest problem was connecting the dots. is it something that can be signed down to a single beam or such? The reason i ask is the die offs in Arkansas saw a radar blip on the weather network, could you see the iridium communication causing this? Obviously we haevnt recieved any other radar info from the other die offs as i'm sure it was just a coincidence that someone caught the on ine Arkasas but.. can you see a possiblity of it showing up on Radar?

To even be considered a "possible cause", there needs to be some credible causal relationship, supported by science or empirical evidence, and not just some temporal coincidence. For instance, when the Beebe birds fell out of the sky, I was, according to my girlfriend, snoring loudly. I'm pretty sure my snoring didn't kill the birds, but, using your reasoning, we need to "rule it out" as a cause because it happened at the same time. And it isn't really good enough to use some tag word like "altered frequencies" to try to buttress wanton baseless speculation. What frequency???. A frequency is just a word describing a number. So, what number? Maybe, like Arthur Dent, your answer will be 42. And how does any altered frequency of anything kill birds? Unless you alter their frequency of eating to 0. Is that it?

OK, I read it. What is the point of it. And you still haven't said what frequency is the cornerstone of your OP. Quantify, and maybe people will respond as you so obviously need them to.

Recent news regarding Iridium

Heres something interesting

www.blackstarnews.com...
[Music]

After a year’s run in the Tony Award hit FELA!, Elasea now returns to the stage in concert at the Iridium Jazz Club in Times Square on January 14th.

Featuring songs from her upcoming debut album “Rainbow Heart,” Elasea fuses Jazz, R&B, NeoSoul and House all to create a mix of colors--her own sound.

Bringing a message of inspiration, honesty and artistry in her performance, the night is promises to be more than a concert but an experience, Elasea's fans say. “Elasea is the personification of vocal excellence coupled with beauty and a heart of gold,” says Perth Phillips, a New York-based producer.

“Elasea’s voice will capture you and never let go,” adds Brett Roman Williams, a Philadelphia-based screenwriter.

The performance is billed “A Night of Reflections--Elasea in Concert.” The Iridium Jazz is located at 1650 Broadway, at 51st Street, in Manhattan. Tickets are $20; $10 Food and Drink Minimum.

Doors open at 11:45pm Concert at Midnight.

"Speaking Truth To Empower."




Look at the location time and date also the other particular words?? Tonight?

You need to check this link out regarding HAARP

The image below is a time-frequency spectrogram, which shows the frequency content of signals recorded by the HAARP Induction Magnetometer. This instrument, provided by the University of Tokyo, measures temporal variations in the geomagnetic field in the ULF (ultra-low frequency) range of 0-5 Hz. The spectrogram images are produced by computing the PSD (power spectral density) of successive 102.4-second segments of timeseries data, and plotting these spectra as color/intensity slices along a 24-hour scale. If the images below is not too interesting, you might want to look at 02 Sep 2004 for an example of narrowband PC1 pulsations, or 27 Jul 2004 for an example of wideband ULF noise during a magnetic substorm. Expanded plots of the last 12 hours, last 6 hours, last 3 hours, and last 1 hour are also available

137.229.36.30...

Below the image on the link are three boxes. Tick them all. Happy viewing


You will now see that everyone has been looking at only 1 of three.
Hence where all the information sits.

Proof that theres more than 2 frequencies and at times more. On the Bz you will see frequencies that are seperated and are a constant "ae"
There are things that need explained regarding all threads in relation to frequencies and also the significant role ofIridium.

en.wikipedia.org...


Satellite flare (also known as satellite glint) is the phenomenon caused by the reflective surfaces on satellites (such as antennas or solar panels) reflecting sunlight directly onto the Earth below and appearing as a brief, bright "flare".

The Iridium communication satellites have a peculiar shape with three polished door-sized antennas, 120° apart and at 40° angles with the main bus. The forward antenna faces the direction the satellite is traveling. Occasionally, an antenna reflects sunlight directly down at Earth, creating a predictable and quickly moving illuminated spot on the surface below of about 10 km diameter. To an observer this looks like a bright flash, or flare in the sky, with a duration of a few seconds.

Ranging up to -8 magnitude (rarely to a brilliant -9.5), some of the flares are so bright that they can be seen at daytime; but they are most impressive at night. This flashing has been some annoyance to astronomers, as the flares occasionally disturb observations and can damage sensitive equipment.

When not flaring, the satellites are often visible crossing the night sky at a typical magnitude of 6, similar to a dim star.


Also if you take note of the actual picture of the satalite you will see that it resembles the shape of the cross UFO seen and thread was posted here today. And if you think about it how many satalites? so just exactly how many of what is left are stars that we see with the naked eye?


Then theres the Iridium Anomaly

en.wikipedia.org...
The term iridium anomaly commonly refers to an unusual abundance of the chemical element iridium in a layer of rock strata, often taken as evidence of an extraterrestrial impact event because of the case of such an anomaly at the Cretaceous–Tertiary boundary (often abbreviated K-T boundary). Iridium is a very rare element in the Earth's crust, but is found in anomalously high concentrations (around 100 times greater than normal) in a thin worldwide layer of clay marking the boundary between the Cretaceous and Tertiary periods, 65 million years ago. This boundary is marked by a major extinction event, including that of the dinosaurs along with about 70% of all other species. The physicist Luis Alvarez and his coworkers were the first to link the extinction to an impact event based on the observation that iridium is much more abundant in meteorites than it is on Earth. This theory was later substantiated by other evidence, including the eventual discovery of the impact crater, known as Chicxulub, on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.

The type locality of this iridium anomaly is near Raton, New Mexico.
