ELF/HF at HAARP[edit]

This article describes the HAARP station as an ELF transmitter. In actual fact, the station transmits in the HF (Shortwave) band between 10-20 odd MHz. ELF emmissions can be induced within the upper ionosphere, but the station itself does not transmit these signals and neither are they anywhere near the same magnitude of fieldstrength.

Given the vast range of nutjob conspiracies centred on this station, it would be good to have a concise description of what actually occurs. I have a background in amateur radio and am willing to assist/draft major edits if this gets a consensus of approval.

It's not a long or special article so I would say that if you want to edit it, simply go ahead and add/modify what you'd like. --Lord Shang (talk) 22:31, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Cold War[edit]

I would have thought that if there was a covert use for this project, it would be to defend against Russian ICBMs, detecting or possibly deflecting them. That seems more likely than weather control. Especially since the DOD and Alaska are involved. Although it started in 1993, presumably the groundwork was laid while the Soviet Union was still in existence.--Albannach (talk) 19:39, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

"It was started in 1993 and is scheduled to run at least 20 years."[edit]

Which brings us to last year. Any news? TeenageWasteland (talk) 04:11, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

HAARP was closed down in May last year (2013). Not necessarily for ever. Ithaca (talk) 16:08, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Cell Towers[edit]

Isn't there a similar conspiracy Theory called cell towers? I've seen something like that an explanation for a worldwide phenomenon called "the hum".--サトセレ (talk) 13:15, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps you're thinking of the various fears associated with microwave energy? It's worth linking to anyway. Bongolian (talk) 18:16, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Why[edit]

... do these people keep on 'harping on' about the subject? 86.134.53.69 (talk) 08:54, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
