Abstract:

The report describes the results of an experiment to investigate the possibility of artificially stimulating ultra-low-frequency ULF signals in the earths magnetosphere by means of signals from a very-low-frequency VLF transmitter. A VLF transmitter system was operated near Anchorage, Alaska, in August and September, 1973. The investigator operated a low-frequency 0.1 - 45 Hz portable magnetometer station at a site adjacent to the VLF transmitter, and also designed a schedule of modulation modes and transmission frequencies for the VLF transmitter in an effort to cause stimulation of ULF signals which would in turn be detected by the magnetometer.
