For the first time in a while HAARP was active in the early morning hours (UTC) 20 February 2017. This activity was preannounced on the HAARP web page as well as several associated Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The official HAARP Facebook account ( https://www.facebook.com/UAFHAARP/ ) was not very useful in real time, however near real time updates were happening on the Twitter account of an assistant research professor ( https://twitter.com/ctfallen ).

A quick breakdown of the HAARP transmissions for early morning, 20 February, 2017, as received at my location:

~0110 to 0200 UTC, active on 4440 kHz with CW.

0207 to 0236 UTC, active on 3350 kHz. Burst sent every 30 seconds. Burst length is 4 seconds and consist of 15 short pulses at 5 pulses / second followed by one, one second long pulse. HAARP system was apparently in X mode during this time.

0239 to 0259 UTC, active on 2800 kHz. Same signal as 0207 to 0236 on 3350, 15 short pulses and one long pulse in a 4 second long burst sent every 30 seconds. Still apparently in X mode.

0300 to 0342 UTC, Using both 2800 and 3300 kHz at the same time in Luxembourg Transmission tests. This series involved different audio being sent in AM mode, sometimes tones, beeps, and music. This was a 9 minute and 30 second cycle repeated every 10 minutes, so there were 4 complete cycles during this time period, one starting 0300, the next 0312, next 0322, and the last starting at 0332 UTC.

0343 to 0433 UTC, Sequencing 2800, 2820, and 2840 kHz, CW on each, Artificial Aurora test. Transmissions 90 seconds long on each freq, off air for 30 seconds, and then to the next in the cycle. Sequence was 2800 kHz in X mode, 2800 kHz in O mode, 2820 kHz in O mode, 2840 kHz in O mode, then back to start of sequence.

Keep in mind that when I use CW above I do not mean Morse code, rather I mean CW as defined by RF types not in communications, CW is Continuous Wave, and simply means an unmodulated carrier.

Last evening I spun around down there and only noted dead AM carriers lasting about a minute on 2800 2820 and 2840. No tones. This was around 0530UTC.

Several people have reported hearing these carriers after the 0433 UTC stop time. The Tweets that went out said, in real time, they were terminating the tests at 0433 UTC. I know they were off for a while after that time. I can only assume that at some later time they came back on air.

Thanks T for all the info. About that time I was reading a thread about this over in Eham and went down the frequencies where I figured they may be doing this and stumbled upon those spots. I remember when they were active back in 2011 they did quite a bit of these dead carriers fore and aft of the actual tone exercises so I figured these were probably them.
