Well lets see,
My last position was mutually terminated on O8/07/02 as a consultant on the BLM Northern Intertie Project. It is a high transmission power line that
travels up over the montains north from a coal fired power plant in Healy Ak.
The ROD travelles north over Rex Dome skirting Clear AFS and then drops down to the plain and t's in to Fort Greely Misslle site and the transmission
line to Fairbanks and Poker Flat.
Here I am certain you will find BIG HAARP at Clear AFS on the high plains. Just NW of Gakona about two hundred miles.
Once they fire up that coal plant and send power thru that transmission line BIG HAARP should have enough juice to toast the crap out of the
Ionsphere. I am not aware of the progress on the intertie, last year scheduled completion was for September the 15th of this year.
Since I ain't with them they may have slowed down. [lol]
Additional pieces to the puzzle that have shown themselves only serve to heighten speculation that we are not getting clear and concise answers. There
is a connection to the recently installed Cray supercomputer at UAF and to the Geophysical Institute there. There is an obvious power requirement that
might be met by a proposed coal power plant at Healy, connected by a proposed power distribution intertie. Some of the experiments will require
"seeding" the ionosphere with chemicals that could be delivered by rockets from the Poker Flats rocket range near Fairbanks. Patents held by the
ARCO subsidiary building HAARP describe a similar ionospheric heater and claim abilities to stop missiles, change weather, and disrupt global
communications. The inventor, Bernard Eastlund, claims he was hired by ARCO to find a use for their Alaska North Slope gas deposits; hence, his
inventions described in the patents. Microwave News May/June, 1994 reported Eastlund said "The HAARP project obviously looks a lot like the first
step toward this."
Clare Zickuhr, a former ARCO employee and ham radio operator based in Anchorage, is a founder of the NO HAARP campaign. Gar Smith is editor of the
editor of Earth Island Journal.
HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), being constructed for the Air Force and Navy by an ARCO subsidiary, is such a project. Touted
as scientific research, HAARP is a thinly disguised project to "perturb" the ionosphere with extremely powerful beams of energy to see what military
uses it can serve. According to the HAARP RFP, these energy beams will be used to "control ionospheric processes in such a way as to greatly enhance
the performance of C3 systems (or, to deny accessibility to an adversary)." That sounds like a weapon to this writer. Other such projects go by the
code names BIME, RED AIR, CRRES, EXCEDE, CHARGE IV, WISP, ACTIVE, HIPAS, RADC, AIM, etc..
n the US such systems are located at Arecibo, Puerto Rico and Fairbanks, Alaska. Other installations are at Tromso, Norway; Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod
and Apatity, Russia; Kharkov, Ukraine and Dushanbe, Tadzhikistan. None of these existing systems, however, have the combination of frequency
capability and beam steering agility required to perform the experiments planned for HAARP.
Design and Construction
As the result of a competitive procurement the Air Force and Navy have awarded a contract to ARCO Power Technologies, Inc. (APTI) for the design and
construction of the IRI and associated support facilities. The IRI design was selected while considering both cost and environmental impacts. The
current schedule anticipates construction at the Gakona site would begin November 1993 and conclude the fall of 1994 with the demonstration prototype.
Construction for the full-size IRI is anticipated to begin early 1995 and conclude late 1997.
As part of the environmental decision making process, Gakona and Clear AFS were considered as alternative sites for the HAARP facility. On 18 October
1993, a Record of Decision (ROD) was signed by the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, selecting Gakona, Alaska as the site
for the HAARP Ionospheric Research Facility. The ROD signing follows the Air Force preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement evaluating the
potential environmental effects of the HAARP facility.
An updated version of this fact sheet will be issued as often as program changes warrant to keep interested parties apprised of significant
developments in regard to HAARP. Any individual seeking additional information about HAARP, or wishing to provide comments regarding HAARP, can

HAARP, "the most powerful facility (of its kind) in the world" is currently under construction near Gakona, Alaska. Other smaller ionospheric
heaters of this type are already in operation in Norway, Ukraine, Russia, Tadzhikistan, Puerto Rico and Fairbanks
"The Soviets, operating at higher powers than the West, now have claimed significant stimulated ionization by electron-impact ionization. The claim
is that HF energy, via wave-particle interaction, accelerates ionospheric electrons to energies well in excess of 20 electron volts (eV) so that they
will ionize neutral atmospheric particles with which they collide. Given that the Soviet HF facilities are several times more powerful than the
Western facilities at comparable midlatitudes, and given that the latter appear to be on a threshold of a new "waveparticle" regime of phenomena, it
is believed that the Soviets have crossed that threshold and are exploring a regime of phenomena still unavailable for study or application in the
"A key goal of the program [HAARP] is the identification and investigation of those ionospheric processes and phenomena that can be exploited for DoD
purposes, such as outlined below.
Geophysical probing to identify and characterize natural ionospheric processes ... so that techniques can be developed to mitigate or control them.
Generation of ionospheric lenses to focus large amounts of HF energy ... thus providing a means for triggering ionospheric processes that potentially
could be exploited for DoD purposes.
Electron acceleration for the generation of IR (infrared) and other optical emissions ... that could be used to control radio wave propagation
Generation of geomagnetic-field aligned ionization to control the reflection/scattering properties of radio waves.
Oblique heating to produce effects on radio wave propagation at great distances from the heater, thus broadening the potential military applications
of ionospheric enhancement technology.
Generation of ionization layers below 90 km to provide radio wave reflectors ("mirrors") which can be exploited for long range, over-the-horizon,
HF/VHF/UHF surveillance purposes ....
Why are the citizens of the United States being asked to pay for such a project? Why do those associated closely with the project reference its use as
submarine communications and other apparently innocuous purposes?
