What is HAARP?The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is a 3.6 million watt antenna array operated by the US military in Gakona, Alaska. Since the Limited Test Ban Treaty over 50 years ago, extremely high-powered radars have been heating rocket exhaust plumes and barium clouds to measure and alter our space environment.
Space Weather Modification technology has advanced to the point where our own environment is now being used as a weapon, and the stakes could not be any higher. If you thought the cold-war was bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet. This hidden history is now exposed in the following series of articles, a Space-Weather Modification Timeline, and a map of currently operational Ionospheric Heaters.
Ionospheric Heater FAQ
definition: “Powerful HF transmitter (2.8 to 10 MHz) that induces controlled temporary modification to the electron temperature at desired altitude”.What does that mean?
Heater antenna arrays pump electricity from the ground into space. This artificial electrical alteration of our ionosphere creates many different effects. Scientists doing these experiments do so without any oversight. These experiments are highly controversial and likely are affecting more than just out atmosphere, they may be affecting your mood.
HAARP is currently the most powerful Ionospheric Heater in the world, soon to one-upped by EISCAT 3D (Tromso, Norway) at 1 Gigawatt ERP.
HAARP was originally designed by the military and eventually sold to the University of Alaska because the military had "moved on to better ways to control the ionosphere," referring to satellite and sea-based heaters.

How HAARP Really Works
The “Christofilos Effect”
During the upper-atmospheric (space-based) nuclear test explosions of the 1950's, Nicholas Christofilos discovered how whistler waves, a type of electromagnetic/radio-frequency radiation, raced from pole to pole along the Van Allen Belts, destroying satellites in low Earth orbit.
Christofilos's Effect is still in use today under many new name. The Christofilos Effect is now in use as a geophysical weapon, a Star Wars defense system, and a last hope short-circuit for an EMP or solar flare related doomsday.
Before the discovery of the natural Van Allen belts in 1958, N. C. Christofilos had suggested in October 1957 that many observable geophysical effects could be produced by a nuclear explosion at high altitude in the upper atmosphere. This suggestion was reduced to practice with the sponsorship of the Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA) of the Department of Defense and under the overall direction of Herbert York, who was then Chief Scientist of ARPA. It required only four months from the time it was decided to proceed with the tests until the first bomb was exploded. The code name of the project was Argus. Three events took place in the South Atlantic. ... Following these events, artificial belts of trapped radiation were observed.
A general description of trapped radiation is as follows. Charged particles move in spirals around magnetic-field lines. The pitch angle (the angle between the direction of the motion of the particle and direction of the field line) has a low value at the equator and increases while the particle moves down a field line in the direction where the magnetic field strength increases. When the pitch angle becomes 90 degrees, the particle must move in the other direction, up the field lines, until the process repeats itself at the other end. The particle is continuously reflected at the two mirror points — it is trapped in the field. Because of asymmetries in the field, the particles also drift around the earth, electrons towards the east. Thus, they form a shell around the earth similar in shape to the surface formed by a field line rotated around the magnetic dipole axis. - List of Artificial Radiation Belts - Wikipedia
The electromagnetic pulse generated by the explosion and the “Christofilos Effect” — the creation of an artificial radiation belt around the Earth — could cripple “low Earth orbit” satellites and with them many of the world’s communications systems, Jane’s reported.
A high-altitude explosion “produces an artificial radiation belt that, within weeks to at most months, delivers a lethal dose of radiation to satellites,” said Dennis Papadopoulos, a scientist at the University of Maryland who worked with Nicholas Christofilos, who predicted the effect.
“If someone were to explode a 10-kiloton nuclear weapon at a high enough altitude over their own territory, 90 percent of the world’s low Earth orbit satellites would be lost within a month,” Papadopoulos said. - Christofilos effect - Wikipedia, censored version =)

“From annihilation to defence
With the breakup of the Soviet Union, submarine communications no longer seemed as crucial, and HAARP needed a new raison d’être. Supporters proposed new tactics, such as studying ELF waves’ ability to map out underground bunkers like those found in North Korea, a goal that quickly drew scepticism.
After the terrorist attacks of 9⁄11, however, the military found a new use for HAARP. In 2002, a panel headed by Anthony Tether, the director of DARPA, recommended that the facility be used to study ways to counter the effects of a high-altitude nuclear detonation, which would release energetic electrons that could cripple low-Earth satellites.
Electrons are produced naturally in this region when the solar wind, a stream of energetic particles flowing from the Sun, slams into the magnetic envelope that protects Earth. The planet has its own self-cleaning mechanism to rid itself of the particles: it eventually dumps them lower into the atmosphere through natural auroras and lightning. Scientists are now looking at whether they can accelerate this process by creating ‘whistler’ waves, which would kick the electrons into low enough altitudes — around 100 kilometres — where they would rain out naturally.
No one knows for sure whether it will work. ‘It is what we call a data-starved area — theory is ahead of actual observations,’ says Paul Kossey, HAARP’s programme manager at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts [now closed and relocated to Ohio]. Several experiments are being done to look at this possibility. Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, for example, is involved in the One Hop Experiment, which uses HAARP to inject very-low-frequency waves into the magnetosphere to create whistlers. The investigators use a buoy and ships in the South Pacific, where the waves fall back to Earth, to measure the presence of whistler waves.”- Purposeful Anthropogenic Climate Alteration: RF Ionospheric Heater Arrogance (e.g. HAARP), Dr. Rick Shankman, MIT ClimateX
Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) waves :ELF waves up to 100 Hz are once more naturally occurring, but they can also be produced artificially (such as for the Navy’s Project Sanguine for submarine communication). ELF-waves are not normally noticed by the unaided senses, yet their resonant effect upon the human body has been connected to both physiological disorders and emotional distortion. Infrasound vibration (up to 20 Hz) can subliminally influence brain activity to align itself to delta, theta, alpha, or beta wave patterns, inclining an audience toward everything from alertness to passivity. Infrasound could be used tactically, as ELF-waves endure for great distances; and it could be used in conjunction with media broadcasts as well. Source: “MindWar”Think we are crazy?

Title: Russian parliament concerned about US plans to develop new weapon
Document Number: FBIS-SOV-2002-0808 Document Date: 08 Aug 2002 Division: Russia, North America Subdivision: Russia, United States Sourceline: CEP20020808000087 Moscow Interfax in English 1009 GMT 8 Aug 02 Citysource: Moscow Interfax Language: English
[FBIS Transcribed Text] MOSCOW. Aug 8 (Interfax) – The Russian State Duma has expressed concern about the United States’ program to develop a qualitatively new type of weapon.
“Under the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), the U.S. is creating new integral geophysical weapons that may influence the near-Earth medium with high-frequency radio waves,” the State Duma said in an appeal circulated on Thursday.
“The significance of this qualitative leap could be compared to the transition from cold steel to fire arms, or from conventional weapons to nuclear weapons. This new type of weapons differs from previous types in that the near-Earth medium becomes at once an object of direct influence and its component.
These conclusions were made by the commission of the State Duma’s international affairs and defense committees, the statement reads.
The committees reported that the U.S. is planning to test three facilities of this kind. One of them is located on the military testing ground in Alaska and its full-scale tests are to begin in early 2003. The second one is in Greenland and the third one in Norway.
“When these facilities are launched into space from Norway, Alsaka and Greenland, a closed contour will be created with a truly fantastic integral potential for influencing the near-Earth medium,” the State Duma said.
The U.S. plans to carry out large-scale scientific experiments, under the HAARP program, and not controlled by the global community, will create weapons capable of breaking radio communication lines and equipment installed on spaceships and rockets, provoke serious accidents in electricity networks and in oil and gas pipelines and have a negative impact on the mental health of people populating entire regions, the deputies said. They demanded that an international ban be put on such large-scale geophysical experiments. The appeal, signed by 90 deputies, has been sent to President Vladimir Putin, to the United Nations and other international organizations, to the parliaments and leaders of the UN member countries, to the scientific public and to mass media outlets. Among those who signed the appeal are Tatyana Astrakhankina, Nikolai Kharitonov, Yegor Ligachev, Sergei Reshulsky, Vitaly Sevastyanov, Viktor Cherepkov, Valentin Zorkaltsev and Alexei Mitrofanov.
