A BRIEF HISTORY
Project S.T.R.A.T. Stands for: "Special
Telemetry Research And Tracking" The effort began
In the summer of 1972 the first ULF (ultra-Low Frequency) radio transmitter went on the air.
The transmitter at that time 40 hertz to 15 kilohertz radio marker beacon started broadcasting a
150-watt ulf sequence of electronic tone pulses towards the stars. This meager beginning was
the start of a 25-year effort to better understand a great mystery.
As the fall of 1973 approached, a large wave of UFO (Unidentified
Flying Object) sightings started
As all of this was going on, the instruments at the project picked
up some unusual electromagnetic
feet of the home I grew up in. Over the next few years, a 16' by 38' addition was added to the house,
which allowed room for one of the largest pieces of high voltage equipment to be installed.
This two story high, 1,000-watt, 60,000-volt deep space radio transmitter is comprised of four large
poly-phase semi-tuned voltage ampoules multipliers. These combined with other high power
low frequency linear amplifiers should enable the music program signal to travel great distances into
space with the idea of attracting the attention of any extraterrestrial inteligences that may be passing
through space near to the earth to detect the signals and follow them in. This in turn may allow for visual
and or electronic observation.
jazz, ethnic, folk and electronic forms of music into space. This broadcast schedule operated on a
six to eight hour daily basis until the project went off the air in the fall of 1998.
Due to a lack funds along with my
own inability to maintain
In brief this sums up the early operations along with a little history on Project S.T.R.A.T.
As things change, so will the project directives. More or less emphasis may be placed on
electronic equipment development and or new areas of scientific research.
