Subject: [Spooks] Fwd: Re: Signal on 5.8 MHz (Mystery solved)
Here's my email to the HAARP folks from last night, and their response.
More later, but I guess this should be my last post to Spooks on this topic
as it doesn't appear to have anything to do with spies.
Sure was fun 'investigating' this. What a great hobby.

Thanks for your inquiry. There is a current research effort underway
at the HAARP Observatory and 5.8 MHz is one of the frequencies being
used by the HF transmitter. The research campaign, which is scheduled
to end after today, is studying propagation of ELF signals in the
magnetosphere, the region above the ionosphere. You are probably
hearing the modulation on the 5.8 MHz carrier signal. These tones are
converted into independent ELF signals at the same frequency
(approximately 1 - 3 kHz).
Although the primary purpose of the test is study of ELF propagation
mechanisms, we are certainly interested in any technical details you
can provide on the HF signal. Also, we would be happy to send you a
QSL card to confirm your reception report if you like. I assume we
can find your address in the callbook.
