HAARP Gearing Up for Its Spring Research Campaign:

Alaska's High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP is prepping for its spring research program. The activity will run March 25 - 29. The high-power HF transmitter and huge antenna array located near Gakona, Alaska, is now operated by the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). HAARP Chief Scientist Chris Fallen, KL3WX, said investigations will range from practical to fundamental physical theory.

"Listen on shortwave between 2.7 and 10 MHz (most experiments will be less than 4 or 5 MHz given low daytime max foF2)," Fallen tweeted on March 13. "Tweet your reception [@ctfallen] and mention me or @uafhaarp, so others can follow along!"

A "special broadcast" featuring Concordia University Assistant Professor of Intermedia Amanda Dawn Christie will be among the transmissions. Fallen said Christie "has a special 1-hour piece to perform each evening of the campaign at different times." Christie's GHOSTS IN THE AIR GLOW -- ionospheric audio and image mixing with HAARP -- website offers more information.

Fallen said HAARP operations will generally occur at times within the windows between 2230 and 0300 UTC, and again between 0500 and 0900 UTC each day.

The HAARP spring research program will be Fallen's last, as he will depart UAF for a new position on March 30. Read more
