"Houston we have a problem" – HAARP or not the Australian
National Weather Radar Network goes into
meltdown after the
strangest 18 days on record. Official statement admits they have
an "Unexpected problem". It begins to look like more than cyclone
Olga was being controlled.

OK, so much has happened that has to be classed as mysterious since January
16th that we need again to take stock and be sure we are not making this up.

Be sure to look at the
previous page and the recap.  Lets pick this up from
February 2, 2010.

Questions from myself and other residents within Australia began falling into E-mail
In-boxes of the Bureau of Meteorology asking for explanations about these bizarre
radar patterns.  There have been a few replies but ostensibly you will see that they
generally claim that individual radar equipment has a problem or that the radar rain
return adjustments were set too low.  Still the strange returns were seen and not
from one radar station but many.  Why then was this problem now suddenly and
mysteriously wide spread across the continent?  It was not just strange symmetrical
patterns that were unusual and according to some experts unique but the weather
itself was bizarre and even worrying.

Tropical storm
Olga strengthened and weakened three times and was noted as
unusual by NASA.  The storm grew into a cyclone and then began its
hand held
behavior into the very regions that seriously needed the water.  A new Low system
formed over Melbourne within hours of a huge energy pattern appearing on radar
over the city. That low, called here
The Melbourne Low moved north and then west
where it modified
Olga which itself then began its move back towards Melbourne. A
whole series of new 'energy bursts' seen on radar (perhaps unexpectedly and
unintentionally) seemingly positioned like billiard balls pushing the weather busting
Olga directly over the birth place of the Low and out to sea. Mission accomplished

If what we have watched for 18 days has been weather modification experiments,
we have for the first time secured many of the steps and opened up a Pandora's
box of questions.

As the public became more and more aware of this website project, we began to
monitor more and more radar stations being taken out of service.  If these were
because of sudden faults, there were a lot of them.  On February 2, 2010
observers on the ground who were helping me watch events counted nine stations
out of service.  That's a lot of radar stations to suddenly go into meltdown or were
they taken down because unexpectedly they were showing too many details of
secret work?  There are technical questions raised here that require an official
explanation.  We will see if we get answers.  Frequencies involved, the type of
problem experienced and why so wide spread? etc..... And obviously there might
be a normal rational explanation.

The story continues.  Many thanks to the many volunteer observers across
Australia who have been watching each radar loop.

Hi Colin,

Just read your posts concerning the (BOM) radar abnormalities in
Australia - & as I live in Oz, I have noticed these strange readings
over the last week also.
 At 10.49am today, I noticed that a large
number of radars where 'offline/unavailable' & thought this was
highly unusual.  They include stations for: Geralton, Albany,
Esperance, Ceduna, Melbourne, Alice Springs, Carnarvon, Broome &
 Also yesterday there was the flat 'white rings' around the
Longreach radar?  I find it hard to believe all these stations can
be offline around these different states at the same time due to
'technical difficulty' - What is really causing this????

Hi Jack

Thanks for your request received by the Bureau. Unfortunately the images
you attached created problems with reading your email our end. Would it be
possible for you to email the image directly to me for interpretation.
Recently we have had some software compatibility progams due to switching
between the back-up weather watch radars when the main radar becomes
unserviceable. This has resulted in spiral type images on the national
satellite/ radar mosaic at:

25 hours after the image seen on left. This radar
grab taken February 3, 2010 and centered upon
Longreach. See below right for local radar.
White ring seen over Queensland. Taken February 2,
(Thanks to Jack and others)
20 hours after the white ring on left. The image
above appeared February 3rd centered on
Townsville - Taken 2.30 pm Melbourne time. See
also below on left - close up on local radar.
Colin hi.
This is doing my head in.

I hardly ever look at the radar weather but have in the last few days since
becoming aware of your site.

I've attached some more pics from about 2:30pm, today Melbourne time.
I think the loop changed as I was "copying" the pices for Townsville. That's
there's 5.

Whatever it is there is no doubt (in this case) that it is originating from

Given it's a military town that makes sense (I guess).

The radar satellite obviously records a certain frequency.  Does anyone
what it is and compared it to possible frequencies used by the military?
Meltdown: Large number of radar stations go down.
Centered upon Longreach.
Centered upon Townsville.
The following day (4th) the remains of cyclone Olga finally crosses
directly over the same spot where the Melbourne Low formed under a
bright red spiral symbol on January 27th (See Fig 4 previous page). As
the storm moves off land to the south east yet another new pattern
appears - bright blood red circle appears over Brisbane - Yes
"Houston we have a problem".
Right now again, near Brisbane this time...Thursday, February 04, 2010

and take a look at
though it's all in Japanese...

Similar RING was seen in Japan on Japanese MET Agency's radar page
back on 04 AUG 08 AND 25 SEP 09.

After the first one, there were some earthquakes in Japan, AND a few
days after the latter, there came that Samoa.

Not 100% sure, but it seems they (the ring) were caused by a Japanese
facility called MU Radar of Kyoto University, located in Shiga Pref.

You connect three buildings(with bluish roofs) and make two triangles,
then you get a STAR OF DAVID just like, the Aussie equivalent in WA...
(Editor: See photos below)
Anyhow, take a look at
http://www.bom.gov.au/products/national_radar_sat.loop.shtml  NOW if possible!!
If not, the attached image below will tell you what it looked like...

Exmouth facility - Australia.
MU Radar at Kyoto University - Japan.
NOTE: After 18 days of numerous designs seen on the national radar system
and explanations of all kinds offered, today a banner has appeared across the
top of the Bureau system seen throughout Australia. Read below: The
statement suggests they don't yet have an explanation for the wide spread
phenomenon we have been monitoring since January 16th.
