• HAARP project

    From n2qfd@21:2/150 to All on Sun Mar 3 05:45:17 2024
    This got to me late yesterday, there may still be some time to receive HAARP transmissions, but it's otherwise a nice example of projects where the Amateur Radio community can help. I got a nice QSL card for my signal report many years back on a moon bounce experiment.

    Some examples of experiments planned for the project are the production of extremely low frequency (ELF) and very low frequency (VLF) emissions and studies on the effects of ionospheric plasma waves on orbiting satellites. HAARP scientists believe these experiments will help lead to a greater understanding of the production and enhancement of ELF and VLF waves, as well as lay groundwork for future studies of satellite interactions with space plasma.
    Operating frequencies will vary, but all HAARP transmissions will be between 2.8 and 10 MHz. Actual transmit days and times are highly variable based on real-time ionospheric and/or geomagnetic conditions. There are no specific data collection requests from funded investigators, but reception reports from hams are appreciated and may be submitted to uaf-gi haarp@alaska.edu or mailed to HAARP PO Box 271, Gakona, AK 99586.
    Below are the anticipated operating times and frequencies:

    March 1 from 0130 to 0800 UTC: 2.8, 3.25, 3.3, 4.1, 5.4, 6.8, and 9.6 MHz
    March 2 from 0230 to 0900 UTC: 3.25, 4.5, 5.8, and 9.6 MHz
    March 3 from 0200 to 0800 UTC: 2.8, 3.25, 3.3, 4.1, 5.4, 6.8, and 9.6 MHZ

    Numerous experiments will operate at frequencies based on the f0F2 critical frequency calculation from the Gakona, Alaska, ionograms. For updates on ionospheric conditions in Gakona, consult the ionograms from the HAARP Diagnostic Suite. https://haarp.gi.alaska.edu/diagnostic-suite
