The Farmington Aramada 1950

31 posts in this topic

These radars they were using out there had been modified to pick up aircraft at a range of 250 miles, and sometimes they picked up UFOs as well--one at an altitude of 200 miles, which was remarkable indeed for the 1940s.

Late August of 1947. The location was Holloman AFB, New Mexico. The timing and the location was no coincidence. The radar was modified to track objects at very high altitude. They aimed the antenna almost straight up and picked up a target at 200 miles. In 1948 the report leaked out, Project SIGN sent two high-level investigators, but the prime witnesses disappeared.

The original CPS-4 was designed to be used in conjunction with the SCR-270 and SCR-271 search sets. It required six operators. This S-band radar, operating in the 2700 to 2900 MHz range, could detect targets at a distance of ninety miles. This radar was modified with its 20' wide by 5' high antenna turned on its side and the range extended to 250 miles.

They did seem reasonably confident even in 1947-48 that they could distinguish real targets from "ghosts" and "angels", but once again, these UFOs were part of the official military reports at the time--very high speed and high flying objects.

So I do wonder if these high-powered radar signals were just one more item that would attract "them", and even act like a homing beacon to lead them to something that was potentially interesting.

There is an extensive discussion here of the detection of a UFO at two hundred miles altitude and of the type of radars being used at that time.

These powerful radars were located in New Mexico for air defense purposes after World War II because of all the sensitive military installations and projects there. They could track missiles, planes, high-flying balloons and so on, but they also picked up UFOs.

For a long time there were doubts that these radar unites even existed there at the time, but we now know that at least four of them had been set up at various areas around the state by 1947.

At the time the Air Force put on a big show of dismissing all this radar and visual reports of UFOs in New Mexico and balloons, but that was also a very useful cover story for the unidentified things that we now know were being detected fairly often.

Yes but even E.T would have an Off switch on the tractor locator or Nav system`s ! Hard to say why they crash ,but we seem to of crashed a few probes ourselfs ! :tu::alien::no:

I already said that radar doesn't cause crashes, but that these signals might actually have attracted UFOs. They were certainly detected at very high altitudes. I know some misinformed people keep saying that they have never been detected in space, but in fact they were as early as 1947, when we had nothing at all up at that altitude.
