For most people, talking about the weather is something you do when you have nothing better to say. For others, weather is a fast paced world of prediction and aftermath, involving state-of-the-art equipment, split second coordination, and nerves of steel. These weather ninjas spawned the term “weather wars“, referring to competing local television networks’ constant struggle to out “tech” each other. Whether you fall in the former or latter category, you’ve probably noticed the weather has been crazy this last year.

- January-February-March also was warmest first quarter on record, NOAA reports
- NOAA: More than 7,700 record highs were recorded during the month
- March also saw more than 7,500 all-time high overnight lows, weather agency reports
- Preliminary tornado reports (223) for the month were almost four times the average
- 80 tornadoes occured
Some would say the freakishly large thunder storms and tornadoes this year were made by HAARP or another countries’ HAARP, and in my opinion they might be right. Some would say, the cause of our abnormally warm winter/early spring is climate change, and they would be right. Some would say that the doppler radars we use to predict the weather are actually making the weather worse, but they don’t explain how or place blame without proof. So without further ado, I will share with you my take on this whole rigmarole.
How Technology Jacked Up Our Weather
Let’s start with the most obvious category, weather modification.
I give you two arguements:
- cloud seeding does not work/has not been proven
- cloud seeding makes subsequent storm systems MORE violent
In 2007, the EAA approved cloud seeding efforts for the ninth year in a row, and for the first time the program included a method to statistically evaluate the project’s effectiveness. Four Board members voted against continuing the program, saying there was evidence that cloud seeding could actually decrease rainfall by accident, and they also had concerns about the EAA paying for scientific studies to investigate something the National Academy had already concluded doesn’t work.
The change in the timing (and location) and/or increased intensity of the rain or alteration in the size spectrum of raindrops may produce an enhanced downdraft, the gust front from which will trigger the successive development of more vigorous second-, third-, and fourth-generation cells than those from unseeded clouds, and they will produce more rain than their unseeded counterparts.

Cloud seeding, Snowpack Augmentation, and Hail Mitigation go on every day in America, yet still some don’t believe these practices are even real:
These industries obviously affect the weather, that’s their job. Is there any regulatory body ensuring that cloud seeding and cloud ionizers are not exacerbating the situation? At the very least, one can say that cloud seeding has some role in the formation of violent storms.
The Doppler Effect
As previously mentioned, there’s a huge crowd of weather warriors watching Intellicast national radar as if it were a wartime heads-up-display. Many consider our country to be under fire, blasted from the heavens by HAARP, causing abnormal rings, beams, and squares to appear on weather radar. Rumors abound concerning The Russian Woodpecker’s signal that caused a lengthy drought in America, though nothing concrete was ever proven (to my knowledge). In 1997, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen clearly stated that “Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves“, so we do have confirmation from the military that weather warfare is real, and the warriors’ concerns are justified. Before we examine whether doppler radars are affecting the weather, maybe you should know a little bit about what they are and how they work.
There are four different types of doppler radars used in America: two for weather assessment, one for ocean currents, and one for tracking flying objects over the CONUS.
Next-Generation Radar - NEXRAD – WSR-88D (green)
Terminal Doppler Weather Radar – TDWR (yellow)
Joint Surveillance System – JSS (red)
Integrated Ocean Observing System – IOOS (blue)
As civilians, we cannot see any radar returns from the JSS system, and the IOOS broadcasts into the coastal ocean waters scaring the hell out of dolphins and whales, so these will be removed from my analysis. For the record, JSS, TDWR, and NEXRAD are all used to monitor rainfall and wind velocity:

In this paper we consider how these radars - Airport Surveillance Radars (ASRs), Air Route Surveillance Radars (ARSRs) and Terminal Doppler Weather Radars (TDWRs) -could complement the WSR-88D network in providing a variety of meteorological services to the U.S. public.
What’s the difference between a NEXRAD and a TDWR?
TDWR: low power, short range, high accuracy
NEXRAD: high power, long range, low accuracy.

How is the doppler radar beam shaped?
There are two main radar beam aspects to consider when viewing images from any Doppler radar. The first one deals with the beam spreading as it moves farther from the radar transmitter. The second is how the beam is bent, called refraction, as it travels through the atmosphere. Source: Jetstream Max – Online School for Weather

TDWR and NEXRAD use this design:
IMAGE SOURCE: NOAA.GOV
- Clear Air Mode
On days where there is no rain, snow, or thunderstorms in the area of the radar scan, the NEXRAD radar operates in “Clear Air Mode”.This is a special setting of the radar that gives it enhanced sensitivity that often picks up things in the atmosphere you wouldn’t normally be able to spot on radar, like dust clouds, flocks of birds, temperature inversions, and also “ground clutter” from reflections off terrain and buildings in the area.
- Precipitation Mode
When rain, snow, or thunderstorms are detected in the NEXRAD radar scan area, the radar will switch to Precipitation Mode. In this mode, the radar’s sensitivity is reduced, so that ground clutter and other objects don’t interfere with the imaging of the precipitation.
Precipitation Mode images are almost always characterized by having lots of lower level green colors in the image that appear in wide patterns. Often you’ll see “cells” of color in yellows, oranges, and reds embedded in the wide green areas, or sometimes all by themselves. These are likely to be thunderstorms.

Are the doppler radars ever pointed at me?

The TDWR automatically switches from monitor mode to hazardous mode when one of two conditions occurs within the principal coverage area of its associated airport. Either a region of 30 dBZ must be located within 24.3 nautical miles (nm) of its associated airport with a nominal extent of 1.3 nm and be at least 1.3 nm above ground level (AGL), or a hazardous wind condition (such as a wind shear or microburst signature) has been detected.
The TDWR hazardous mode has been optimized to monitor both low and high level conditions over and in proximity to its associated airport. In this mode, a base (low elevation) scan is required approximately every minute to monitor for possible low-level wind shear. A long-range scan is required once at the start of each new scanning strategy for range folding mitigation.
Each complete hazardous mode scan strategy contains 23 elevations. Elevation angles can be different for each TDWR. However, in general, the strategy patterns (aloft or low level scans) are the same among all systems. A summary image of all 45 TDWR hazardous mode strategies can be found in Figure 6.

Basically, if the doppler is on top of a mountain, or detects ground level wind-shear (TDWR) the beam can be angled down at you. The reason is the longer it is pointed down, the longer your are getting an unhealthy dose of electrical stimulation.

NOAA [JessePedia], who owns and operates the radars in the national network, has an excellent page explaining how radar beams work. It included the illustrations below about Superrefraction and Ducting (the radar beam is shown in comparison to a faded “normal” radar beam at the top of the illustrations). In both cases, the radar beam curves quicker than the curve of the Earth. I suspected this was to blame for the Radar Bloom.
In the case of “Ducting” the radar beam bends so much that it hits the earth, causing extremely dBZ returns (because the ground is much thicker than your average raindrop when the beam runs into it). dBZ, or “decibels of Z” is the way radar data (hopefully precipitation) is measured. The colors you see on radars correspond to dBZ levels, higher meaning more intense.When the radar beam hits the Earth, this phenomenon is called “high dBZ anomalous propagation” and is a real problem because, to the untrained eye, it looks just like thunderstorms.
|EXAMPLES OF HIGH-DBZ AP: Notice on this example, a Northeast Still Image, how the high dBZ AP in Canada and New York looks a lot like the thunderstorms off the coast of the Carolinas. If you Download* This Northeast Loop then you can see that, while the thunderstorms move, the AP stays still. On the
Binghamton Radar Site Raw Loop, notice how the AP mimicks the mountain tops, because the beam won’t make it to the valleys once it hits the mountains. Notice also in the northwest part of the image how there are no echoes over the lake, because the surface is too flat to reflect back to the radar.
When the sun goes down and the earth’s surface begins to cool, the change in refractive index in the lowest few (to several) hundred feet of the atmosphere tend to bend the radar beam toward the surface. This bending holds the radar beam near the surface for extended distances where it encounters scatterers that would not normally be available at the standard heights expected at these ranges. These scatterers include insects, bats, aerosols, particulate matter, etc., and account for the increased radar return referred to as “radar bloom.” Source: noaa.gov
Radar receivers in the national network of Doppler radars (WSR-88D) can detect sunsets. Here, in a composite of reflectivity images across the east-central U.S., seven sites did so. A radar antenna was located at each location numbered in yellow, with the sun at a low enough angle to the ground to be intercepted head-on by the radar beam.
How do you explain the “laser beams” on radar?
It’s called “Searchlight Mode“
Notice that while in searchlight mode, the power levels in the beam stream go up significantly over time (heating). This is generally called a “pencil beam”; here is an example from ARIES: Pencil Beam animation.

Here is an alternative explanation:
The image shown above is a “sunburst” or a “sun spur.” These appear when the radar is pointed directly at the sun and the sun’s radiation hits the receiver directly.
This will generally happen twice per day: Just after sunrise and just before sunset when the sun is just above the horizon. Since the sun emits radiation of virtually all wavelengths the radar is essentially blinded (just as we are) when we look directly at it. Source: Lexta
What does the purple color mean?
Range Folding is basically when the radar is unable to determine the wind’s velocity. This is due to the speed at which the radar transmits signals, called the pulse repetition frequency (PRF). The faster the pulses are sent by the radar the less time it has to listen for any returned signals. It occurs when the return from a prior pulse is detected during the listening period for the current pulse. Both reflectivity and velocity data are affected by this.
The occurrence of range folding can usually be detected by radar software and reflectivity data can be “unfolded” using special programs. However, velocity data cannot be accurately unfolded and therefore the effective range with which Doppler radars can detect velocity data is limited by the frequency of the radar pulses; the higher the pulse rate, the shorter the range within which the velocity field can be determined.
When the radar is unable to “unfold” the information, we paint the region purple as an indicator of the problem. There are some ways to minimize range folding and we have recently implemented a program which will sample the atmosphere with different PRF to do just that.
What about the “HAARP rings” and other oddities?
Let’s go to Lexta.com’s Introduction to NEXRAD radar anomalies

As on can clearly see, much of the rigmarole surrounding radar oddities can easily be explained.
What about the squares?
Clearly the Pleasant Hill, Kansas City, Missouri NEXRAD is generating this scalar wave. HAARP is not involved, but something is definitely amiss. If you are interetsted in investigating this further, you should probably start by calling the NEXRAD station and saying, “hey man, WTF?” I have yet to find a plausible explanation for these squares, maybe you can. Could repulsive fields be at play here?
Though I totally disagree with dutch on the use of HAARP when describing any of this, I do agree with him on his analysis of these radar anomalies. What if the NEXRAD wasn’t making these squares? What if microwave cellphone towers created a nationwide array capable of performing HAARP like activities? Though it may sound far fetched, the possibility remains:
Multifunctional radio frequency directed energy system
United States Patent 7629918

Are these the square waves created by this cell phone tower array?
Received 2 December 1935; published in the issue dated January 1936
Quantitative discussion of nuclear reactions due to bombardment with charged particles requires the knowledge of wave functions in repulsive inverse square fields of force.
One can say for certain, cloud seeding makes the weather worse. What affect radar beams have on our weather is a matter for scientists to study and debate. What I hope you learned is that 90% of radar anomalies are just that, irregularities caused by human error, equipment failure, or atmospheric conditions we (normal people) barely understand.
Do you want to play detective?
Figure out what effect these radar beams and anomalous propagation play on your nervous system, look into square waves and how they could possibly be generated by a doppler radar, and determine if cell phone towers are possibly entering the mix. Go and be fruitful.

That’s right, it says that scientists “guess” that it probably effects your mood, and chemical processes in the body. Electrosmog affects us all, do the research, your mood depends on it.
