M42

It's a bit slow on the FAPSI reporting front. Only one log this month. Lars copied them on 14871 kHz where he heard a RTTY message on link 80038 after the Mazielka selcal at 1443 UTC. The transmission ended with some ops chat.

Has anyone heard any FAPSI activity from Cuba since the Russians pulled out?

HAARP

The message that HAARP would be active reached me via Trond and the actual logs came from Tom Sevart.

HAARP, the High frequency Active Auroral Research Program, located at Gakona in Alaska, were performing their spring 2002 VLF injection campaign, during the period March 15th - March 28th. The transmissions were heard on 3.2 and 5.8 MHz.

The transmissions on 3.2 MHz consisted of 12.5 Hz on/off keying 50 % duty cycle. On 3.2 and 5.8 MHz chirp transmissions were announced and further sinusoidal modulation with the following frequencies; 1225 Hz, 1875 Hz, 2125 Hz, 2375 Hz, 3365 Hz.

Tom reports "I'm hearing the HAARP signal tonight (17 March). At 0826 I heard a steady AM carrier on 3200 with a tone. This was later replaced by quick dashes of the carrier on 3200. At 0837, the signal moved to 5800 and consisted of an AM carrier with various tones. Can't wait to get a QSL for this."

Let us know if you get one, Tom!
