Why So Many GWEN Towers?


    “GWEN (Ground-Wave Emergency Network) is a communications system currently under construction that operates in the very low frequency (VLF) range, with transmissions between 150 and 175 kHz. This VLF range was selected because its signals travel by means of ground waves – electromagnetic fields and hug the ground – rather than by radiating into the atmosphere. The signals drop off sharply with distance, and a single GWEN station transmits to a 360-degree circle radiating out from it to a distance of about 250 to 300  miles.

    “The GWEN system consists of approximately 300 such stations, each with a tower 300-500 feet high.  The stations are spaced from 200 to 250 miles apart, so that a signal can go from coast to coast by hopping from one station to another. When the system is completed in the early 1990’s, the entire civilian population of the United States will be exposed to the GWEN transmissions…..

…..”And the potential harm to the civilian population from the operation of GWEN has not been addressed. I am concerned….because of the potential for behavioral and cognitive alterations that have been discussed in this book. GWEN is a superb system, in combination with cyclotron resonance, for producing behavioral alterations in the civilian population. The average strength of the steady geomagnetic field varies from place to place across the United States. Therefore, if one wished to resonate a specific ion in living things in a specific locality, one would require a specific frequency for that location. The spacing of GWEN transmitters 200 miles apart across the United States would allow such specific frequencies to be “tailored” to the geomagnetic-field strength in each GWEN area. While I doubt that this potential use has occurred to the planners of the GWEN network, or that such action could be deliberately taken by any portion of the federal government, the mere existence of the GWEN system may, at some future date, prove irresistible.”

Note from MC:  In 1990 the “Cold War” was over, and the threat of nuclear war was greatly diminished. Yet the GWEN system, designed to survive a nuclear war, was completed anyway. And instead of one tower every 200 – 250 miles, we now have in our neighborhood about 50 towers within a 5-mile radius of our home. Why?
