HAARP

Postby Farty » 18 Jul 2017, 12:20

Anyone planning a crack at monitoring HAARP during its next scheduled run in September? Date is TBC, but im checking their page every few days.

I understand they will also QSL, either electronically or the old fashioned way, so I might give that a go.

They haven't said yet, but their cancer causing, weather disrupting, mind control typically takes place between 2.5 - 10 MHz. Tin foil hats on everyone! :lol:

Rumour had it they shut down a few years ago, clearly a lie, I guess you wouldn't mothball a $10b project, well, apart from Apollo, and RAH-66 Comanche, and ....................

It was down for about 2 years. The Air Force binned it off, but Fairbanks University eventually picked it up.

I listened to it on 40m at least ten years ago, the sounds were very hypnotic.

The Arecibo set up is an astronomical radio telescope, so there are probably limits as to what it can do when pressed into atmospheric heating experiments.

Left the SDR# running all night, nothing captured.
