1962 ELF Propagation Tests
- Using a 400HZ 175KW alternator & 10,000' antenna at Boron Ca:
I wonder if the alternator was a modified Alexanderson or a custom built unit for this experiment? and if there is anything left of this facility at Boron.
- I do not think it a coincidence that during this same time period,
Strategic Air Command was defining requirements for the Survivable Low
Frequency Communications System, and a few years later chose the old
Victorville Army Air Field Auxillary Air Field #1 15 miles E of Boron,
near Hawes Creek, as the location of one of the transmit stations.
But unfortunately, the official references to the site being at or
near Boron could also easily mean the property in question was part of
Boron Air Force Station was in operation during the era, and near it
was the mysterious Air Force Plant #72.
