Chief Editor’s Note: According to ARRL, the HAARP facility has been abandoned and will be shut down, due to lack of funding and is in the hands of the U.S. Air Force. Is this true? Has the control just shifted? Is this just a distraction? There’s no better way to make people look the other way, than to make us believe something doesn’t exist anymore. It makes one wonder, why at such a juncture of society waking up to the secretive program, it suddenly “runs out of funds”. Another issue to ponder is DARPA’s involvement. Stay tuned for further news updates.
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) — a subject of fascination for many hams and the target of conspiracy theorists and anti-government activists — has closed down. HAARP’s program manager, Dr James Keeney at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, told ARRL that the sprawling 35-acre ionospheric research facility in remote Gakona, Alaska, has been shuttered since early May.
“Currently the site is abandoned,” he said. “It comes down to money. We don’t have any.” Keeney said no one is on site, access roads are blocked, buildings are chained and the power turned off.

In the meantime a new prime contractor will be coming on board to run the government owned-contractor operated (GOCO) facility.
