HAARP No Longer Playing

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.
