HAARP Plans Return to Full Power by Summer

The University of Alaska-Fairbanks High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) resumed research activities for the season in April, with the former Air Force facility running at 80% power. Officials told the ARRL Letter that they plan to bring the array back to 100% power by summer. The facility is used for a variety of ionospheric research activities, obviously focusing on phenomena surrounding the Aurora Borealis.
