Those of you who have never heard of the HAARP project may want to
check it out at http://www.haarp.alaska.edu, where a lot of
information is available on this non-classified project.
Essentially , a _lot_ of RF power will be beamed upwards (sort of a
super-duper Luxembourg Effect experiment :-)
Although the transmissions are not, at this point in time, directed
toward Europe, you may well be able to receive a few sniffs of RF here
and there (which almost a megawatt of Tx power...who knows? After
all, last month at nags Head, we were hearing European broadcasting
stations quite well, with the same kind of power levels).
HAARP will be operating almost continuously this month from March 8th
March 27th. Many experiments are being run that concern basic
research and ELF generation techniques.
(Attempts at generation of ELF will be made by pulsing the
The HAM listening test is of course a CW message sent with full power
(960 kW) into the array (15 dB gain). The QSL card is a real nice
photo of the array, definitely a collector's item.

Good luck and 73,
