Ok, So I was replying to another thread about "how they can aim HAARP". The thread was not very informative and I thought I would type this out to see
what you all think. Now I know the "usuals" will pop in and say it is not possible....take your meds.....or whatever............that is fine.
Please read......It is a frequency generator.
This thread is not about earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, solar storms, etc....etc......This thread is dedicated to how do they point the darn
thing.....This is not the doomsday thread that you were hoping for.... I am sorry.
I repeat....... This thread is dedicated to how they point HAARP.
I have looked and read the Haarp website many times.www.haarp.alaska.edu...
This time I thought I would look a little more closely. Here is a couple of diagrams of the array.
Ok, so we got the array pics out of the way. So lets continue.
Here is what really got me curious on how they point the thing. I guess we should call it angle, I don't know.
During active ionospheric research, the signal generated by the transmitter system is delivered to the antenna array, transmitted in an upward
direction, and is partially absorbed, at an altitude between 100 to 350 km (depending on operating frequency), in a small volume a few hundred meters
thick and a few tens of kilometers in diameter over the site.www.haarp.alaska.edu...
It is generated in an upward direction? I know that it says over the site. But it also says upwards. This is not a very technical term if you ask me.
Look at all of the other complicated words and definitions. Can it be upwards over there a few kilometers away from where it was, or supposed to be? A
slight angle change will make a big difference.
up·ward /ˈʌpwərd/ Show Spelled
[uhp-werd] Show IPA
–adverb Also, up·wards.
1. toward a higher place or position: The birds flew upward.
2. toward a higher or more distinguished condition, rank, level, etc.: His employer wishes to move him upward in the company.
3. to a greater degree; more: fourscore and upward.
Upward. How many degrees one way or the other are we talking here? Upward
As I was reading the glossary, I noticed alot of talking about bending the beam and different paths it can take, or scatter..Here is a few tems that I
thought was enteresting.
Type of ABSORPTION occurring wherever the ray path bends
significantly such as near the top of a ray trajectory. Deviative absorption
predominately occurs near a layer critical frequency...........................
Term applied to propagation conditions where a signal may arrive at a
receiving location through more than one geometric path.......................
An ionospheric propagation mode characterized by two successive
Earthward reflections from an ionized layer without an intermediate
ground reflection, usually caused by an ionospheric tilt........
The intersection of the Earth's surface with a plane containing the center
of the Earth and two points on its surface. A great circle is the shortest
distance between those two points. Radio waves usually (but not always)
follow great circle paths from transmitter to receiver.
In this picture, in the lower right hand corner, it looks like they are focussing the beam, and bouncing it off of everything. Hmm. Thats interesting.
UHF or not.
I was searching for the parameters...... Here they are.
Some Performance Parameters for the HAARP Antenna System
TextSize...... 1040 feet X 1280 feet
Area...... 30.6 acres
3 Mhz ....100 (20 dB)
10 Mhz..... 1000 (30 dB)
Main Lobe Beamwidth
3 Mhz..... 15 deg
10 Mhz..... 5 deg
Operating Frequency... 2.8 - 10 Mhz
Pointing Angle ......Within 30 degrees of Vertical
Reposition Time...... 15 deg. within 15 microseconds

Sidelobe Control...... Full - By Element Tapering
Maximum VSWR...... 3.2:1
POINTING ANGLE. It says within 30 degrees of vertical...Within???
This must be the upwards we were referring to earlier. Or is it?
If it says within, does this mean that it can change? Is it a fixed postition? Whenever I read "within", it is not an exact number or range, this is
also known as a tolerance. I think we are getting the run-a-round here.
tol·er·ance noun ˈtä-lə-rən(t)s, ˈtäl-rən(t)s
the allowable deviation from a standard; especially : the range of variation permitted in maintaining a specified dimension in machining a piece
Also, why is there a reposition time? Would this mean that they have to reposition the beam, or array? What else would they reposition?
I also noticed this in the parameters.
Sidelobe Control........ Full - By Element Tapering
Here is some information on sidelobe.
In antenna engineering, side lobes or sidelobes are the lobes of the far field radiation pattern that are not the main beam, where the terms
"beam" and "lobe" are synonyms.
The radiation pattern of most antennas shows a pattern of "lobes" at various angles, directions where the radiated signal strength reaches a maximum,
separated by "nulls", angles at which the radiation falls to zero. In a directional antenna in which the objective is to emit the radio waves in one
direction, the lobe in that direction is designed to be bigger than the others; this is the "main lobe". The other lobes are called "side lobes", and
usually represent unwanted radiation in undesired directions. The side lobe in the opposite direction (180°) from the main lobe is called the "back
lobe". In transmitting antennas, excessive side lobe radiation wastes energy and may cause interference to other equipment. In receiving antennas,
side lobes may pick up interfering signals, and increase the noise level in the receiver..
So does this mean that with different side lobe locations and angles they can scatter or point the beam in different directions?? What if the side
lobes are "tiltable", or adjustable?
I would like to see if anyone can answer these questions in a nice manner. Please follow T&C's. I am finding alot of information about bouncing,
scattering, and pointing beams. How come people think that this is not possible?
While I admit that I am not a "radio rocket scientist," I just want to know if these features make it able to be aimed or pointed in a different
direction. Your input would help.
Finally, here is the picture on HAARP's website
In this picture, in the lower right hand corner, it looks like they are focussing the beam, and bouncing it off of everything. Hmm. Thats
Ps. I do notice that most of the people that comment on HAARP have no idea what they are talking about.. I do not wish to be one of these
Help crack the code...... No code you say..... How is a frequency generator not supposed to be able to focus it's frequency? Sounds like someone got
Let the reaming begin.
...Just kidding...Maybe.....Maybe not.......
