These amplifications can begin as nearly insignificant signals. Substantially immersed in the effect of an auroral current, an insignificant current can grow to very large and very influential proportions. The stimulating signal does not have to be strong at all in order to attract an auroral streamer to the ground. The modulations of powerful radio signals by small near-polar transmitters revealed the aurora as a dynamic energy amplifying stratum. An incredible incident occurred in Norwood, Ontario during the winter of 1929. The operation of a large radio receiver was suddenly and abruptly brought to a halt. Though the tubes were bright, the aerial sure, and the ground secure, reception very suddenly “went dead”. The gentleman went to a window in order to inspect his aerial, when he noticed that a bright aurora was in progress. Going outside to observe the aurora, he was shocked to find that an auroral streamer had completely surrounded his house, though maintaining a distance of several feet. It became a veritable curtain of streamers, many colors being simultaneously visible. The curtain appeared unsteady, its scintillating appearance continually “snapping”. In a visible display of enormous significance, the curtain was continually and visibly sparking to ground. Here was the source of his radio “disturbance”. The receiving oscillator, weak and insignificant, had successfully drawn an auroral streamer down to ground (Corliss).
To engineers and analysts, the DP is a straightforward application of commonly understood radio principles. It is a massive HF array, an immense 33 acre field of separate vertical towers. How these applications have been combined to form a distinct technology is not well perceived or suspected by engineers. Until the several noteworthy accidents which occurred in radio stations throughout the early part of the century, confidence that the aurora itself could be accessed as a very realistic natural energy source was viewed as insanity itself. Throughout the time span between World War II and the Cold War years, powerful back EMF effects were noted in certain near-polar radio stations when auroras soared overhead. The notion of tapping this natural immensity as a reservoir gradually developed in the minds of inspired engineers. The enormous current represented in the auroral ring may be drawn down from its seemingly fixed aerial throne. To bring down…Valhalla.
The conclusions lead us to consider the strong possibility that the DP is being used to test the possible modulation of the auroral ring for purposes altogether different than stated. The DP may not be a device whose modulating effects on the aurora are for signalling at all, but for the derivation of power. In the absence of all other evidence, and in the balancing of all which has been deduced, one is compelled to consider the thought that the DP is a an experimental device designed to draw power from the aurora directly. If this is really so, then HAARP has been designed to assess the potentials of a new energy generating technology; and has done so on behalf of a corporate megalith. We are compelled to consider the various social and technical directions of its commercial implementation. The notion of the DP represents a new venture frontier in energy technology, of which Raytheon may hold but the smallest thread. All of the other possible reasons for HAARP have largely been eliminated. Advanced Power Technologies is the subsidiary assigned to the HAARP Project. The entire bureaucratic array is completely dominated by Industry, one of the largest defense contractors in the nation.
The routine modulation of the auroral ring could become the energy future of the northern hemisphere. But what are the necessary theoretical overviews which can enable an understanding of such a completely surprising notion? There are several techniques which employ different electrodynamic force symmetries to achieve deformation and groundward conductive flow in the auroral ring. The aim of each such technology is to “draw down the fire”. Each depends upon the fact that the sun supplies an enormous plasma flow. Once this flow enters the northern polar region, geomagnetism separates the plasma (low into two opposed current flows of opposite charge. Electrons and protons flow in opposite directions, the electrons moving with far greater mobility and being the significant charge carriers. Static electrical field applications from the ground cannot influence this plasma because dielectric field lines diverge before they reach the requisite spaces. This explains the inconsistent operation of “passive” auroral attractors.
The most efficient use of this applied field energy requires that the site be based near the Arctic Circle. In this technique, the actual applied radiowave energy need not be very great at all. Timing is the secret. Pulsation rhythms provide the critical factor. Geophysicists have made extensive surveys of resonant responses in the auroral ring. These resonances represent a continuum which begin in the ULF range, extending well into the Radar Bands. We have reviewed the mechanism whereby consecutive applications of radioelectric influence produce significant deformations of the auroral ring charges. It is a process which relies on the permanence of auroral deformation, and the quasi-cohesive rotation of the auroral ring around the pole. Deformations have a ponderance, a permanence which maintains shape in travel within the whole ring current Cyclic appearances of these deformations over a station site can be resonantly timed to amplify each previous deformation.
Successions of ever increasing deformations produce cyclonic spiralling of auroral charges toward ground sites. Auroral columns of charge begin reaching the station within a specified time. This flow of charge must be appropriated in proper absorbers. In order to appropriate auroral energy, one needs a VERY LARGE absorption area. Preparation for this flowing charge requires a substantially large metallic terminal. The absorber is one which necessarily is possessed of a very large area. It must be made of very heavy and highly conductive gridwork. The DP is equipped with just such a grid. It is a cross-hatched gridding of very heavy gauge copper cable, perhaps one inch in thickness. The gridwork appears to have been wired and welded together.
The various means for achieving this kind of condition differ only in the electrical field symmetries which are applied to the auroral ring. Each experimental ground transmitter be designed to test these radiowave varieties. One scheme employs simple vertically oriented radio pumping action. This ground based influence exerts a pulling action upon the ring, a stimulation which pulls down on the ring current as it surges over the station. These powerful “tugs” are strong enough to produce downward movements in the ring current. Once the conductive path has been established, the vast flowing power of the auroral stream can be used.
