    Here is an interesting article that provides some history to the HAARP

    pretty much lays it out in non-classified form.

    Please read my earlier post about the f0F2. There was no reflection from the atmosphere at vertical incidence above 2-3 MHz during the experiment. Your disbelief in the science of this experiment is totally ungrounded.

    If you would read up a bit on the principles of NVIS communications, something that you as a ham have to deal with, you'd understand all of this.

    I think it would depend on the size of the asteroid. If it was on Ceres, which is now classified as a dwarf planet, you'd have plenty of space to set up a course. The problem would be, if you were a decent golfer, of hitting the ball so far, you'd probably never find your first drive. On the other hand, if you were on a very very small asteroid, your first drive could end up orbiting it for a length of time. If it was a really tiny asteroid, your ball might reach escape velocity and end up being a new heavenly body as a member of the asteroid belt. They'd probably call it Titleist 1.

    I love your avatar. There is nothing wrong with your television set. Please do not attempt to adjust the picture.

    :) ..........We are controlling transmission.........................

    "The Galaxy Being" was the very first episode of the original 1963 "Outer Limits" series to be aired. He was supposedly composed of "electromagnetic waves" instead of matter, so I thought that it would be an appropriate avatar for a ham. "End of transmission" he faded into oblivion.

    2010 XC15 was in the end of December 2022 around 772.000 km far away. The Moon itself is around 230.000 km far away. And yes, I didnt believed in that HAARP project. Everybody was so enthusiastic, that they believed in every "new" information.
    Equal if it was a signal bounce back from the atmosphere, what it seems that it was almost, or other strange sources. To that the asteroid 2010 XC15 was classified as enourmous hazardous.

    And now the big question, what happend in the last days? Yes, there was another asteroid with the name 2023 BU with a mass of a bigger truck. It was a close flyby beneath Earth of around 3.600 km. To get this illustrated, GPS is around 20.000 km away. So why was this not a big topic and a big chance, or more a crown juwel for scientists?

    Equal what this HAARP project was, it was not that what it seems to be. Because 2023 BU was near to crash into South America, and nobody were able to protect somebody when the case of a crash will happen. Who is intrested in echos?

    The most disturbing fact is that Gennadiy Borisov discovered the asteroid on January 21, 2023 just days before it could have impacted Earth.

    Billions of taxpayer dollars go to organizations allegedly to track and monitor these potential impacts yet this one, on an extremely close pass, slipped through. Granted the asteroid would have likely burnt up in Earths atmosphere, but why wasn't it discovered earlier?

    LOL well. When you live in Komiefornia and complain about taxes.....ROFLMAO.
    (Just thinking out loud to myself).

    I recall my old man a few years ago (truck driver) was hauling a load of windmill turbine blades to Komifornia. The Komiefornia Gestapo stopped him at the NV/CA state line to inspect his truck. He was informed that they were confiscating the 6-pack of Coca Cola that he had in his cooler because he purchased it in Nevada, thus evading the "Komiefornia aluminum recycle tax". Since the tax hadn't been paid to the state of Komifornia that made the possession of said coca cola "contraband". Serious. True story. It wasn't opium, date rape drugs, a pipe bomb, kiddie porn, nucear bomb making materials, anything like that. It was Coca damned Cola. Legal to own in all 47 states and every other country on the planet but North Korea. Let that marinade in your mind for awhile.

    I'm out of here. I'm gonna get my machine gun (legal in NC) out of the closet and go to the range in my greenhouse gas exhaust spewing truck (legal in NC) and shoot some lead (legal in NC) bullets (also legal in NC) at some targets. :)

    Has anyone received their QSL card?

    Not yet. I suspect this will be done at the speed of the BURO. I sent my report in via email to aid in delivery. (shrug)

    Will note when it arrives. FWIW, my personal experience with university types (I taught classes locally) is that all things tend to move at a glacial pace. At best.

    I'll post a note once anything hits my inbox.
    @KL7AJ may have some additional input, as he knows these folks.

    For the HAARP test last April, I emailed my signal report to them, never got a response. Next time I’ll try their PO box.

    Has anyone received a paper QSL card in the mail? Eqsl? Lotw? Some form of confirmation from NASA or the University?

    I haven’t received a QSL card, but I did get an email from them on 12/28/2022 when I sent in my email containing my data (email posted below).

    Thank you, we'll be sending out QSL cards in the coming weeks. If not already in hand, I've attached the transmission notice and media image.

    Thanks for the input Joe.
    Their "coming weeks" have turned into several months.
