H.A.A.R.P. facility to quadruple power
2004 11 09
Eham.net, the website for Ham Radio enthusiasts, is reporting that the controversial HAARP research facility in Alaska is set to quadruple in power over the next 3 years. Technical Specialist Richard Lampe said that "joint funding through DARPA will allow HAARP to quadruple in size from its current 960 kW output to 3.6 MW."
Ostensibly, the HAARP facility is simply aimed at studying the ionosphere. Their website outlines the function of the research:
HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes.
The HAARP program is committed to developing a world class ionospheric research facility consisting of:
The ionospheric research instrument (IRI), a high power transmitter facility operating in the HF frequency range. The IRI will be used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere for scientific study.
A sophisticated suite of Scientific (or "diagnostic") instruments that will be used to observe the physical processes that occur in the excited region.
Observation of the processes resulting from the use of the IRI in a controlled manner will allow scientists to better understand processes that occur continuously under the natural stimulation of the sun.
However, others have charged that the HAARP facility is primarily a clandestine defense project, pursuing multiple goals. Chief among those is attempting to control weather patterns and natural phenomena such as earthquakes. However, other alleged functions include blacking out communications networks as well as mind control.
