MYSTERIOUS ELF SOUND AGONIZES NEW MEXICO;
SPREADS ACROSS THE NATION
By Jim Moore, Executive Director, The Phoenix Foundation
Copyright 1992 by the Phoenix Foundation. All rights reserved.
Reprinted with permission.
In the desolate hills and canyons of New Mexico, the land is alive
with some strange phenomenon that pulsates in the hearts of the
people, driving them to exhaustion, distraction and illness. That
phenomenon is known simply as "The Sound". Is it some top-secret
underground operation in an area known for its legends about Area 51
and alien bases? Is it an underground generator? Water? Wind? Or is,
as some claim, "the voice of God" demanding attention?
The Phoenix Foundation was recently asked to conduct an
investigation by dozens of people whose lives are being torn apart
by a throbbing, pulsating noise that results in severe headaches,
nausea, illnesses and even broken marriages. There's no doubt "The
Sound" is real.
Dana Hougland, an acoustic engineer with the firm of David L. Adams
Associates, Inc. of Denver, brought her equipment to Taos in
response to a plea for help from Catanya Saltzman and her husband,
Bob, who contacted the Phoenix Foundation.
Hougland, who said her interest was sparked by Catanya's detailed
records of the sound, identified it as being some sort of powerful
pulse of 17 hertz, with overtones up to 70 hertz. The Environmental
Protection Agency has ruled these frequencies "psychoactive",
meaning they have pronounced and harmful biological effects.
The story of "The Sound" reeks with drama. The Saltzmans have
received telephone threats warning them to "back off" and "don't
stick your nose into something that's none of your business." The
Taos News has also received anonymous threats. Marriages have been
ruined because some people hear it - or feel it - and others don't.
The normal range for human hearing begins at about 20-30 hertz, but
women and children are more sensitive to these frequencies - and to
higher frequencies - than men, according to video display terminal
and other studies.
Hougland is very skeptical that the sound is related to underground
activities at nearby Los Alamos National Laboratory, about 56 miles
away. "That would be a world record," she said, citing the distance
a sound travels through any medium but open water before it
dissipates. The sound is low and the waves so elongated, she said,
that some people can feel it vibrating inside their chests. "Other
constant sound exposure with pure-tone components" - like prolonged
traffic noise or the sound one hears flying inside a jet - often
result in complainst of discomfort and illness similar to those
reported in several cities in New Mexico and now in other states,
such as Michigan and Texas.
The most apparent culprits, Hougland says, are a local sewage
treatment plant, power lines spanning the Rio Grande Gorge, large
underground machinery, large tunnels or mine shafts through which
wind and/or water is moving in large volumes at high speeds. But
that fails to explain similar sounds in far-off locations. "I'm not
ruling anything out," she said. "It would take an awful lot of
energy to transfer the sound waves out of the ground and through the
Attempts to pinpoint a source, even with triangulation methods, have
been fruitless. Also, Hougland is skeptical about natural sources
because the sound wasn't noticed until suddenly in about June 1991.
"I'm sure the sound is there," she said. "There is a legitimate
problem here to be l;ooked at. But we're not dealing with something
horribly bizarre her4e. It's probably a very common source." Others
aren't so sure.
"We've been inundated with people claiming there are aliens running
around in underground bases," Catanya said. "But I do not believe in
UFOs and aliens." Yet the possibility cannot be overlooked entirely.
Catanya and most of her Taos neighbors are not familiar with the
claims of people like Bill Hamilton who claim extraterrestrials are
living in huge underground bases near Groom Lake, Nevada, not far
from Taos. When I placed an overlay of a map pinpointing The Sound
locations over a map of alleged underground alien bases, they
matched almost precisely.
The bizarre events at Groom Lake have been widely reported in People
Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Wall Street Journal, Taos News and
elsewhere. Groom Lake is said to be a testing ground for alien
craft piloted by human pilots working with extraterrestrials. It is
known to be where the Stealth bomber and fighter were developed and
tested and where a new, saucer-shaped craft is being flown. Another
possibility - just as coinspiratorial - is that the government is
developing some kind of powerful, extremely low frequency "mind
control" weapon and testing it on an unwitting population. An Air
Force lieutenant at Kirtland Air Force Base guardedly acknowledged
that the Air Force was well aware of the complaints - and wanted to
know why we wanted to know more.
The sound is hauntingly familiar to the Woodpecker Signal, a
psychoactive Soviet pulse beamed worldwide at 10 hertz that
disrupted global communications, aircraft flights, and even - some
say - the weather. It was the same signal beamed at the US Embassy
in Moscow since 1963 that caused a dramatic increase in birth
defects and cancer among embassy personnel. Two ambassadors in a row
died of cancer and a third, Walter Stoessel, left with bleeding
eyes. President Kennedy authorized Operation Pandora, a top-secret
investigation. The report is still top-secret.
The Phoenix Foundation, through the Freedom of Information Act, has
obtained once-classified documents from the CIA and DIA (Defense
Intelligence Agency) that prove beyond a doubt that the United
States has developed this technology as a weapon "to mold human
behavior in a manner consonant with national plans." The judge in
the Judas Priest "subliminal music" trial a few years back cited a
litany of CIA use of "mind control" to influence national elections,
but those written comments never made it into the mainstream press -
or any news medium for that matter, until now.
Catanya Saltzman, 44, who is leading efforts to identify the source
of this puzzle, first heard it in May 1991 in her home eight miles
south of Taos. "In the middle of the night, it woke me up and I
started running all over the house for a place to get away from it,
but I couldn't," she said. "At first, I thought somebody was digging
a well or something." Her husband, Bob, a photographer, couldn't
hear anything at first, then "snapped to it", he said. "Once you've
heard it, it's all over for you."
The sound has been noted over a wide area - from Tres Piedras on the
west to U.S> Hill on the east, and from 10 miles south of to a few
miles north of Taos. It is heard at all times of the day, but mostly
during the night and early morning hours. Coincidentally perhaps,
that is the time of day when the most intense activity is observed
at Groom Lake. Power lines were the first suspect, but when
electricity was cut off in the area due to a faulty transformer, the
sound continued. "The military conspiracy is the only one which I
haven't entirely ruled out," Bob Saltzman said. To those who are
affected by it, it isn't funny. "People are suffering from this,"
said Catanya. "It's real. Your concentration is thrown off. My hands
shake. It's hard to put words together . . . " "The hostility that's
been directed at us is coming from people who can't hear it and
don't want to know about it. It's like ostriches sticking their
heads in the sand."
The written threat to "back off" was published in the June 18, 1992
edition of the Taos News weekly newspaper: "Stop snooping where you
don't belong as far as 'the sound' is concerned. Someone may end up
getting hurt, so you'd better cease before it's too late. We mean
business. Don't pry into matters that don't concern you. You may
find something you don't want to know. Beware."
Editor Jess Williams said the unsigned, typed letter with no return
address bore an Albuquerque postmark (common on internal Taos mail)
and could be either a joke or a serious warning to either the
Saltzmans or to the Taos News. Hougland's firm has worked on sound
insulation on 2,000 homes around Denver's Stapleton Airport and
recent modifications of the city's Boettcher Concert Hall. She said
the 17-hertz signal carries a "rising harmonic" reaching 70 hertz.
She said she, too, could plainly hear the sound. She said a similar
problem in Alabama was traced to a large ventilation fan in an
underground mine. Pumps on sewage equipment can also emit vibrations
in the sub-hearing range.
Michael Valerio, water resource engineer for Taos, said no recent
additions have been made to the plant that could possibly explain
the noise. He also hears it at his home two miles from the plant.
State Environment Department environmentalist Juan Ortega visited
the area twice. He also heard it, but is baffled for an explanation.
U.S. Bureau of Land Management geologist Vickie Daniels said she and
her two children can hear the pulse from their home on the west side
of the Rio Grand Gorge. She has searched in vain for the cause, and
does not believe it is a natural phenomenon. Neither the Bureau of
Land Management nor the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has
equipment suitable to test for the source of the sound.
"My hearing's very poor," said Sally Howell, 79, who lives near the
center of Taos, "but for maybe a year and a half I've been feeling
these weird vibrations in different parts of my body - right where
the ribs come together, inside my ears and headaches." Paul Loumena
and Alexandra Lorraine, owners of the Laughing Horse Inn, stay in a
motel two nights a week just to escape the terror.
"My theory," Loumena says, "is the noise is above us and the town is
in a swale. Either that, ort the background noise of the town keeps
us from hearing it (when we stay at the motel)." He suspects high-
tension power lines. Jon Samuelson, assistant to the vice president
of external relations at Plains Electric Transmission and Generation
Cooperative in Albuequerque, discounts that. The last change in area
electricity transmission was when a new 345-kilovolt line was built
across the Rio Grand Gorge in 1981.
K.C. Grams, of Taos' south side, said her husband doesn't hear
anything, but she does. She replaced her home heat pump - but the
sound continued, even from 15 miles away. She first suspected a
neurological problem. When during a function at her child's school,
another mother asked if she heard the hum, she said, "My jaw
dropped. I almost cried. It was very heartening . . . It's very hard
to describe, especially a sound that many people don't hear. All I
can say is that it affects me like scraping fingernails against the
blackboard. It's very irritating."
"The Sound" has been reported in Albuquerque and in several other
northwest New Mexico cities. Schatzie Hubbell and her husband, of
Santa Fe, are among several who are trying to sell their home and
flee the state. The Hubbles are going to Arizona. "The most common
theory we've heard is, 'Jesus is making this sound to wake you up,'"
said Bob Saltzman. A Los Alamos resident, Helen F. Stanbro,
suggests a medical cause. "The description of the symptoms
accompanying the sound ("jaw joint pain, nausea, vertigo")
immediately suggest an inner ear problem (infection? Meniere's
disease? Temporomandibular joint inflammation - TMJ?)"
"In the case of the man who described the sound as 'pulsating -
louder and softer - like a slow heartbeat', it alarms me to think
that it is very likely to be exactly that: such audible carotid
bruits are not uncommon and may signal serious condition s such as
arteriovenous fistula, carotid artery disease or even impending
Tom Ladig of Taos suggests wind:
"Out by the Stakeout Restaurant (site of the Saltzman occurence)
there are power poles running roughly east-west along the main
access road. These poles are set quite far apart and have dual lines
well above the trees. Also, there exists a perpendicular set of
poles running roughly north-south in the vicinity." "What may happen
is that the wind causes the wire to vibrate between the poles. Air
in turn is set in motion with waves radiating outwards at (for this
system) subsonic frequencies.
"A secondary phenomena must alkso be happening. Waves from different
pole-line sets merge over distance and either reduce or add to their
amplitudes. This would account for the energy to rise and fall in
intensity over time but still be subsonic."
This past May, Albuquerque TV station KOB-Channel 4 broadcast a news
brief about an underground geo-thermal shaft at Los Alamos which was
built to probe into the earth's hot inner core. Some suspect that.
"I live up at the Tierra Blanca," said Peggy S. SParks, "and have
for 50 years. The noise out here is real, fairly recent in origin
and irritating as hell."
"I only hear the noise at night, when the world is quiet. However, I
had gotten to be quite an insomniac until I started using a fan or
humidifier to block the saound out. "I have spent hours outside at
night trying to pinpoint the source of the sound. By the process of
elimination, the only projects in the last year or so that could
create sound of this magnitude is the generator/pump at the golf
course or the apparatus on top of Picuris Peak."
What is that "apparatus"? No one knows, beyond it being some sort of
radio transmission tower, perhaps for cellular phone transmissions.
J.C. McLoughlin of Talpa puts forth one of the most bizarre
theories: "I interviewed 'Moonhawk', a spiritual feminist. She says
that deep within the Picuris Mountains, a spaceship full of
immortals from Uranus has lain buried for some 10,000 years. This is
true; Moonhawk told me so. I'm not making this up.
"The atmosphere of Uranus is composed of frigid clouds of ammonia,
methane and other gases toxic to earthly life. Moonhawk says the
aliens are digging their way up from their hundred centuries'
hiding; the basso profundo we hear are from their vast excavating
machines, and their emergence is at hand. "Not to worry, though,
for these are feminist aliens, Moonhawk says, come to obliterate the
"The Space Feminists are going to pour forth from their hole like a
horde of ammonia-quaffing killer hens from hell, to rid the world of
wars, oppression, meat-eating, social injustice, Republicans,
tourism-based economic inequality, suction-cup Garfields, airport
extensions, golf courses and all the other plagues visited upon
long-suffering humanity by the ancient ruling cabal of European
males. "Welcome to the UFO - Universal Feminist Order."
Oh, well! Rose Woodell of Llano Quemado: "I, too, am hearing and
feeling a low-frequency vibration dating back several months. "When
I leave the Taos Valley my physical discomfort (such as headaches,
nausea, disorientation, etc.) disappear. I had previously thought it
might be some sort of fallout from the Los Alamos area or a chemical
spray. "Could it be aliens? Nah, we'd be sending them foreign aid."
Secret Military Studies
September 18, 1990 - A tight lid of secrecy has been clamped on U.S.
military studies of biological effects of electromagnetic field
(EMF) radiation. The Phoenix Foundation, through years of research,
has accumulated a large database of information dealing with the
biological effects of EMF and is the only civilian non-profit
research group in America specifically chartered to explore the
effects of Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) electromagnetic energy.
Over the past two months, the Foundation has released dozens of
documents from its files pertaining to the effects of EMF on
residents living near high-voltage power transmission lines. "The
time has come," says Foundation Executive DirectorJim Moore, "to
push this issue into the public consciousness. For too many years
the research has been classified 'for reasons of national security'
and has been used for advanced weapons research.' The Foundation
claims to have evidence that Americans may have been used as guinea
pigs in nationwide "mind control" experiments involving
electromagnetic fields. Adds Paul Brodeur, staff reporter for The
New Yorker and author of several books, including "The Zapping of
America": "Surely, if the questions that should have been asked
about the various applications of electromagnetic radiation continue
to go unasked about future applications, this nation will one day be
faced with a public health disaster of monumental and perhaps
The Phoenix Foundation claims that the reason that EMF health
effects continue to be denied is because the military and
electronics industry are in close cooperation over what to make
public about EMF biological studies. As an example, the Foundation
cites a report entitled "Biological Effects of Electromagnetic
Radiation (Radio- waves and Microwaves) -Eurasian Communist
Countries," prepared for the Defense Intelligence Agency by the Army
Medical and Information Agency (you can order a copy of Report No.
DST-181 0S- 074-76). This report was issued in March 1976 as a
classified document. Most of its contents, 26 pages, were
declassified in November of that year after Barton Reppert, of the
Associated Press, wrote letters to the Pentagon requesting that it
be made public under the Freedom of Information Act. The Pentagon
agreed, apparently to help win increased Congressional funding for
electronics warfare systems. After acknowledging in a summary
section that microwave exposure standards in Communist countries
^'remain much more stringent than in the West," the report warned,
"If the more advanced nations of the West are strict in the
enforcement of stringent exposure standards, there could be unfavora
ble effects on industrial output and military functions."
The DIA report presents the rationale that "the Eurasian Communist
countries could, on the other hand, give lip service to strict
standards, but allow their military to operate without restriction
and thereby gain the advantage in electronic warfare techniques and
the development of anti-personnel applications." Much of the
declassified portion of the document is filled with obviously
deliberate, but unintentionalIy comic, contradiction,
misinterpretation and omission, the Phoenix Foundation claims. For
example, the first page of the summary says that "Eurasian Communist
countries are actively involved in evaluation of the biological
significance of radiowaves and microwaves," while the next page
declares: "no significant research and development has been
identified that could be related to work in this field in the
People's Republic of China, North Korea and North Vietnam.^' The
Soviet Union, in contrast, was not even mentioned in this paragraph.
The entire middle section of the report, entitled "Biological
Significance of Radiowaves and Microwaves," turns out to be little
more than a general review of well-known studies conducted by
Communist scientists from 1968 to 1975. Yet in its final paragraph
of a section entitled "Trends, Conclusions, and Forecast", the
authors reveal their most signifcant omission. Virtually alI of the
work whose usurpation by the Communists they are suggesting, and
whose potentially disastrous consequences they are describing, was
originally conducted by Allen Frey, published in the medical
literature of the United States, and financed by the Office of Naval
Research. That paragraph states: ^No Eurasian communist research
activity has been identified which can be clearly or directly
related to any military offensive weapons program. However, soviet
scientists are fully aware of the biological effects of low-level
microwave radiation which might have offensive weapons application.
Their internal sound perception research has great potential for
development into a system for disorienting or disrupting the
behavior patterns of military or diplomatic personnel; it could be
used equally well as an interrogation tool.
The Soviets have also studied the psychophysiological and metabolic
changes and the alterations of brain function resulting from
exposure to mixed frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. One
physiological effect which has been demonstrated is heart seizure.
This has been acomplished experimentally in frogs by synchronizing a
pulsed ultra-high-frequency microwave signal of low-average power
density with the depolarization of the myocardium and beaming the
signal at the thoracic area. A frequency probably could be found
which would provide sufficient penetration of the chest wall of
humans to accomplish the same effect. Another possibility is the
alteration of the blood-brain barrier. This could allow neurotoxins
in the blood to cross. As a result, an individual could develop
severe neuropathological symptoms and either die or become seriously
The next paragraph is even more chilling: ^The potential for the
development of a numberofanti-personnel applications is suggested by
the research published in the USSR, East Europe and the West. Sounds
and possibly even words which appear to be originating
intercranially can be induced by signal modulation at very low
average power densities."
(In the spring of 1973, Dr. Charles C. Sharp and some colleagues at
the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research conducted an experiment
in which the human brain received a message carried to it by a
pulsed microwave transmission. Sitting in an anechoic chamber - a
room with absorbent walls designed to prevent microwave reflection -
Dr. Sharp was able to recognize spoken words that were modulated by
an audiogram - a graphic representation of the sound waves that
humans can hear - and that were then sent into the chamber at a
microwave frequency of about two gigahertz.) Later in the DIA
report, the authors predict that the Soviets will continue to use
internal sound perception, perceptual distortion and other
psychophysiological effects, and that "the results of these
investigations could have military applications if the Soviets
develop methods for disrupting or disturbing human behavior." A
smalI portion of this DIA report remains classified. It clearly
indicates that the US has been in volved in the development of such
weapons for some years: ^A study published in 1972 by the U.S. Army
Mobility Equipment Research and Development Center, titled "Analysis
of Microwaves for Barrier Warfare^, examines the plausibility of
using radio frequency energy in barrier-counterbarrier warfare. It
discusses both anti-personnel and anti-materiel effects for lethal
and non-lethal applications for meeting the barrier requirements of
delay, immobilization and increased target exposure. The report
a. It is possible to field a truck-portable microwave barrier
system that will completely immobilize personnel in the
open with present-day technology and equipment.
b. There is a strong potential for a microwave system that
would be capable of delaying or immobilizing personnel in
c. With present technology no method could be identified for a
microwave system to destroy the type of armored materiel
common to tanks."
(NOTE: A television producer has told me that a friend of his who
was in a band, went to the Gulf to entertain the troops. Inflight,
their sound equipment was lost, but the military pulled up with a
truckload "of the most sophisticated sound equipment I have ever
seen in my life." When band members started to photograph the truck,
they were stopped by military guards who told them it was a highly-
classified piece of equipment and could not be photographed. Other
sources have told us they were puzzled when the Army placed powerful
speaker systems throughout the desert - "but no sound came out of
them." An estimated 20,000 Gulf War veterans are now suffering from
the same symptoms one would find in the victims of electromagnetic
non-ionizing radiation - aching teeth, jaws, joints, chronic fatigue
syndrome, destroyed immune system, etc. Still other sources tell us
that this top-secret ELF "barrier weapon" was used against Manuel
Noriega in Panama; the "loud rock music" blared at Noriega's
hideaway was just a cover to mask the real purpose of this powerful
A bit later in the same report, the authors reveal that the U.S.
Army Medical Research Laboratory at Fort Knox, Kentucky conducted
tests on microwave burns, using human guinea pigs: ^They have
produced third-degree burns on human skin with twenty watts per
square centimenter in two seconds, with frequencies of approximately
More than ten years ago, a CIA analyst suggested the same thing when
asked to review Project Pandora, the still-secret investigation into
the Soviet microwaves beamed at the U.S. embassy in Moscow. Dr,
Milton M. Zaret wrote: ^The primary emphasis of Soviet-bloc research
on the biological effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation
is concerned with induced neuro-physiological or behavioral
aberrations. These may be either inhibitory or excitatory; the
primary locus of action may be in either the peripheral or central
nervous system, and the effects may be reversible or irreversible.
Super-imposed upon these three sets of variable are the concepts of
thermal vs. non-thermal effects, the role of continuous versus
pulsed waveform, and the degree of wavelength specificity.
Although the various reports appear, at first glance, to represent a
confused and conflicting mass of data, a logical, orderly and
meaningful pattern can be evolved in evaluating their data. The
basic factors which must constantly be borne in mind are
(1) that microwave radiation is electromagnetic in nature,
(2) that the nervous system functions as an electronic network
normally shielded or protected from spurious fields and
(3) that when extraordinary electromagnetic fields are created
around neural elements this can produce functional or
organic neurological anomalies.
Zaret pointed out that Soviet research showed pulsed fields (such as
those which appear around power lines) were more effective than
continuous radiation in affecting nervous system pathways.
"For non-thermal irradiations, they believe that the electromagnetic
field induced by the microwave environment affects the cell
membrane, and this results in an increase of excitability or an
increase in the level of excitation of nerve cells. With repeated or
continued exposure, the increased excitability leads to a state of
exhaustion of the cells of the cerebral cortex. This results in the
Sechenov inhibition effect which is manifested by the elimination of
positive conditioned reflexes or behavior.^
This is the same result found in studies of the effects of power
line fields on human cell samples. One hesitates to quote such a
source as the National Enquirer, but the response this article
elicited from the Department of Defense warrants it. On June 22,
1976, the tabloid reported that since 1973 the Advanced Research
Projects Agency had been sponsoring a program to develop a machine
that could read minds from a distance by deciphering the brain^s
A scientist involved in the program had declared that the ultimate
goal of his work was to exercise control over the brain. According
to the article, scientists were studying various aspects of the
problem at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York
University, the University of California at Los Angeles, and the
National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Ames Research Center
at Moffett AFB in California. The amazing thing is that on November
19, 1976, in a letter published in Paul Brodeur's "The Zapping of
America^ and written by Robert L. Gilliat, Assistant General Counsel
for Manpower, Health, and Public Affairs for the Department of
Defense, the government confirmed such a machine actually exists:
"As indicated in my letter of November 12, information which I have
received from the Advanced Research Projects Agency is to the effect
that the so-called 'brain wave' machine, which was the subject of
the National Enquirer article . . . is not capable of reading brain
waves of anyone other than a willing participant in the laboratory
efforts to develop thatvparticularvdevice. Its technical
limitations, I am told, do not permit any long range use. I have no
reason to doubt that information."
What assurances do Americans have that this will ONLY work on
willing participants? The implications are staggering. It is
technologically possible that the entire power grid of the nation
could be used not only as a means of mind control "in a manner
consonant with national plans" (as put in a top-secret document
submitted to the Warren Commission in 1964 by former CIA Director
Richard Helms), but could also be used as a national tool of
surveillance. Is it unreasonable to believe that efforts continued -
and possi- bly even succeeded - to utilize this weapon over long
ranges and on unwilling participants? An intriguing report that
links these effects to those power densities "that exist in a
typical urban environment" was recently compiled by William Bise,
director of the Pacific Northwest Center for the Study of Non-
Ionizing Radiation, in Portland, Oregon. Entitled "Radio-frequency
Induced Interference Responses in the Human Nervous System," the
report describes preliminary experiments conducted on ten human
volunteers - five men and five women -between July 1975 and June
1976. According to Bise, these experiments, conducted without
controls, showed that "biological interference responses in the
human nervous system can be elicited not only by pulse-modulated but
by continuous wave radio-frequency at power densities substantially
below those levels that exist in a typical urban environment."
Four of the male volunteers, subjected to irradiation by electric
fields of only 65-90 microvolts per meter, experienced short-term
memory impairment, followed by concentration inhibition and by
irritability, and three of the women volunteers expressed
apprehension and mild irritation during the course of the tests. In
the final section of his report, Bise suggested that since
approximately five percent of the urban population of the U.S. was
believed to be living in an environmental power density averaged
over several radio bands of about two volts per meter, his findings
indicated that "a meaningful risk factor for the general population
appears to exist." He then concluded that "since radio-frequency in
the environment continues to increase at a phenomenal rate, there is
a need for further clarifying research of radio-frequency effects on
The importance of this research, claims the Phoenix Foundation, is
in the similarity of its effects to those found from power line
radiation. Dr. Zaret was likewise concerned about the Soviet
"woodpecker signal" that interrupted communications worldwide (New
York Times, October 30, 1976), not because of its interference with
radio and telecommunications, but because of its potential threat to
human health: "The broadband signal is being pulsed at an on -off
rate of ten times per second. When I analyzed the soviet literature
for Project Pandora back in the 1960s, it was very clear that such
an encoding impressed onto carrier wavelengths could have a central-
nervous-system effect. In the case of the present signal, I would
not be surprised to find that the on-off code at a repitition rate
of ten per second could have an effect on the brain's inherent alpha
rhythm. So whetever purpose the Russians may have for continuing
this transmission, the potential effect in human beings from
altering their alpha rhythm cannot be discounted." Powerline
radiation pulses at 60 times per second, a sixth-level harmonic of
the brain waves - same as six octaves higher. The biological and
cellular effects are the same, according to study after study after
As this article went to press, in the September 1992 issue of The
Omega Report ($15/year-The Phoenix FOundation, P.O. Box 92008,
Nashville, TN 37209), we continued to receive reports from around
the nation about the same or similar ELF "sounds". The latest
reports come from Burbank and San Anselmo, CA, near Hamilton Air
If any of you have information or knowledge about similar effects or
activity in that area (or any other) that may be related to ELF
military experiments, please tell us. We are trying to map the
locations of these incidents by computer.
Before it becomes illegal to do so (I face a potential $1 million
fine and imprisonment under a propsoed FDA law), I would like to
give you a number of health approaches (natural, non-drug) that MAY
help combat the effects of this warfare in which we are the guinea
pigs. Exposure to ELF radiation will, among other things, weaken
the immune system and can cause skin problems, as well as the other
problems mentioned by Taos residents in this article.
For skin problems, I recommend - on the advice of a doctor who does
not prescribe drugs - citricide (a concentrated cirtric acid), lay
off coffee and use cooler water in your bath (for skin problems).
You might also want to consider alpha- or delta-wave brain
relaxation tapes (not subliminal tapes) that will counteract the
theta-wave effect of ELF radiation. Our research indicates there may
be a link between ELF radiation and AIDS - as it destroys the immune
system. We have testified in federal court as an expert witness on
this issue and will be doing so again in a court case in Springer,
Mississippi in October 1992.
By all means, consult your physician before taking any remedies.
Even vitamins, if over-used, can cause damage. We hope to have a
special report in the next issue on what you can do to combat ELF
radiation effects. Please note: ELF radiation is non-ionizing -
unlike nuclear radiation - so its effects are different.
If you are one of the growing number of Americans whose health is
