Abstract : The 2011 Summer Student Research Campaign (SSRC) was conducted at the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) Research Station in Gakona, Alaska during the period 18 27 July 2011. The SSRC included 26 students and mentors representing 11 universities and federal research laboratories. The program included daily meetings to provide a forum for reporting results and discussion of individual experiments and included a daily scientific presentation or tutorial. Scientific topics addressed experimentally included studies of Stimulated Electromagnetic Emission, F-region Artificial Field-Aligned Irregularities, effects of scintillation on GPS signals, studies of the Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) generation region and of methods for improving conversion efficiency, and the incorporation of sophisticated modulation techniques to improve the quality of ionospherically generated ELF communication signals using QPSK and error correction.
