ELF to shut down today

Deep Blade has received a comment from an excellent, helpful Michigan blogger (site named Vacuum) to my post on Nukewatch: 25 years later. He posts today on a September 20 Ashland, Wisconsin news story: Navy plans to scrap ELF; Transmissions to end at Clam Lake September 30. Please click through his Daily Press link to read a detailed news story giving lots of history on the ELF system.

This is good news, as it fulfills the wishes of hundreds of activists who have over the years conducted numerous demonstrations and civil disobedience actions against this transmitter.

The transmitter was designed to broadcast Extremely Low Frequency electromagnetic waves that would direct submarines during the conduct of a nuclear war. It is good to see that this particular Cold War symbol of planetary destruction will be put to rest.
