Project S.T.R.A.T. Earth Station One

Project S.T.R.A.T. Stands for: "Special Telemetry Research And Tracking" The effort began
in the spring of 1971 and was established in the spring of 1972 as a "sole proprietorship".

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
to occur on a world wide basses. At this time I found myself involved in one of the most intriguing
events of my younger life. During this time many UFO reports came in from the local area.
Some of these reports were nothing short of astonishing!

As all of this was going on, the instruments at the project picked up some unusual electromagnetic
disturbances, mostly in the form of harmonic interference (400 to 1,000 hertz), intermingled with the
60-hertz power line frequency. An oscilloscope was used in conjunction with the electric power
distribution lines as a detector, to measure any unusual electromagnetic activity in the local area.

  • As the UFO phenomena persisted, Project S.T.R.A.T. Expanded to encompass over 1,200 square
    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.
  • Over the past 25 years the focus of the effort has been in broadcasting a wide variety of world music,
    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
    the high costs of continuing operations, the project and all of the equipment was moved in 1998 to a less expensive location.

    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.
