Yeah, an interesting read. Not so much for the data they got, but for the multiple tales of difficulty they had in getting any data at all. The
remote artic regions dont act kindly to sensitive equipment. No phone lines in some places, interference from equipment in others, snow melting and
causing water damage, natural geophysical atmospheric noise etc...
Most of the report is related to listen to signals from satellites in order to calculate values related to Total Electron Count (TEC). A small
part of the report repeats the experiment when the HAARP facility was operating, to see if the TEC numbers change. More problems here, with one
experiment run being scrapped due to equipment problems, and others being cancelled due to the ionospheric conditions not being suitable. (the
ionosphere absorbing all the HAARP radiation leaving none to reflect back to earth for measuring). Even then, not all receiver locations detected
The data they got is right on the edge of the levels of noise.
Some quotes showing the problems...
The beacon data collected from this pass proved to be unusable
generated either directly or as a by-product of HAARP IRI heating
- Meaning that they cant tell the difference. If there was a HAARP effect,
its too small to be certain.
while it does not map directly into the F-layer region in which the IRI is interacting, it is very near to it
- Meaning that HAARP might not
have actually done anything here.
Indeed at the bottom of page 39 they postulate the idea that HAARP many not have had any effect on the atmosphere AT ALL, but the results were
possibly simply due to the HAARP transmitters interfering directly with their receiver equipment. - unlikely but should be verified with engineers
familiar with the DMSP instrumentation
and at best they only have strong circumstantial evidence that this is unlikely
One of the results is hardly conclusive... We are fairly certain that the irregularities that caused the scintillation shown in Figure 24 were
generated by [HAARP]
Only "Fairly certain"? Isnt HAARP supposed to be so powerful as to cause earthquakes on the other side of the world?
So in the end they got some data from some of the experimental runs, but hardly an example of killer destruction. Seems that when you're looking
for the effects of HAARP on the atmosphere, you're hard pressed to find much at all.
