Gordon West, WB6NOA, wrote about his visit to HAARP in the January 2004 issue of CQ.
HAARP - the U.S. government's High Frequency Active Auroral
Research Program - has shut down due to lack of funding. The ARRL Letter
reports that the research facility in Alaska that has been closed since early
May. "It comes down to money," Program Manager Dr. James Keeney told
the ARRL. "We don't have any." Keeney says the facility is currently
under control of the U.S. Air Force, but that if no other agency steps forward
to resume its operation, then it will eventually be dismantled.
