No. Wardenclyffe was nothing like HAARP and looked nothing like HAARP. It was a very large Tesla coil, not a phased array.
If you have seen pictures of his Wardencliffe tower then you would be looking at what could have been the precursor to HAARP in a miniaturized version.
While Tesla's coils could transmit radio signals, he didn't understand that. He thought he was sending electrical signals through the earth. He actually didn't believe that radio waves could serve any usefull purpose, either as a means of power transmission (wrong) or as a means of communication (very wrong). The trouble is, he didn't really understand electromagnetic radiation.
The comments on the utube video explain how this aplies to gravity.
Dude, show CURRENT not voltage. Static voltage proves nothing. I get readings like that if I just put a voltmeter in my mouth. Light an LED. Spin a motor. Do some work. Otherwise your demo is not valid.

Do you know that a voltmeter uses some current to measure voltage?
Amount depending on impedence.
Tesla never claimed radio is useless. You are trying to put words in his mouth.
I also caught the fire of enthusiasm but was not long deceived in regard to the practical possibilities of this method of conveying intelligence.
But a few tests with apparatus, far ahead of the art of that time, satisfied me that the solution lay in a different direction, and after a careful study of the problem I evolved a new plan which was fully described in my addresses before the Franklin Institute and National Electric Light Association in February and March, 1893. It was an extension of the transmission through a single wire without return, the practicability of which I had already demonstrated. If my ideas were rational, distance was of no consequence and energy could be conveyed from one to any point of the globe, and in any desired amount. The task was begun under the inspiration of these great possibilities.
Which is why I point out that you are wrong in this claim. Tesla proved his understanding of how electricity and electrical propagation to be superior.
Electricity travels through the earth at 2.7 times the speed of light? That's impressive.
To illustrate, the current from a transmitter situated at the Atlantic Coast will traverse that ocean—a distance of 4,800 kilometers—in less than 0.006 second with an average speed of 800,000 kilometers. If the signaling were done by Hertz waves the time required would be 0.016 second.
Did they throw around terms like "electromagnetic radiation" in those days?
Energetic ions (alpha particles) are by-products of fusion burn in a D-T plasma. It is essential that these ions remain confined and give up their energy to heat the background plasma, thus sustaining the fusion burn. Consequently, the physics of high-energy ions produced by auxiliary heating and by fusion reactions must be understood and controlled in order to progress to a practical source of power.
I don't find this guys experiment in the op all that foolish.
