I was told that when this site was first installed, on special occassions, people could ride the elevator to the top. I have a magazine with a picture taken from the top.

I have been up to the top, one day a week, when the VLF transmitter is off, there is a small window of opportunity to take the very small elevator to the top. Scary as heck, walking out on a open-bottomed metal grate platform, held up by wires, that's taller than the Empire State Building.

I believe this is HAARP. HAARP stations all over the country even the world use frequencies to control the weather. Do humanity a favour and Research it!

What a nonsense. This has nothing to do with HAARP. It's a Very Low Frequency transmitter, one of several, used by US Navy to communicate with its boomers in the Indian Ocean area.

Is the tower insulated against ground or grounded?

My father was the Project Manager on this job in '64, '65 and '66. Spent my summers up here as a kid.
