A month ago I toured Eben Emael, a late 1930's Belgian fortress above
the Maas river near Maastricht. The fortress is famous for the daring
surprise attack that disabled its guns within 20 minutes and made it
surrender the next day. I will not go to the details here, the Eben
Emael Association has a site www.fort.eben-emael.be, there are good
descriptions in other Google groups (search Eben Emael in Google
groups) as well as a good description of the tour (search Eben Emael
Hankinson in Google Groups).

That's http://www.fort-eben-emael.be/ . Interesting site and story.

Some very,very low wave frequencies can transmit through deep water and
rock,almost anything.Satellites are used a lot nowdays,but Satellites
can get knocked out.

The antenna system was buried underground in the Upper Peninsula of
Michigan (roughly along the American/Canadian border, yeah). It was
decommisioned just recently, as they use different wavelengths for
communications now. It was indeed for communications with subs around
the world - my boss was a CMPO on a series of nuclear subs from
1967-1997, and can talk at length about the ELF system.


The antenna wasn't underground. They had problems with woodpeckers
drilling nests in the wooden poles that it was mounted on.

There was also a scientific study that found that trees growing
near the antenna were bigger than those further away. They
concluded that it was a small amount of RF heating that helped the
trees grow right at the beginning of spring. Tells you something
about the weather on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

as a Yooper (a resident of the Upper Penisnsula of Michigan) the ELF
system is south of me and just barely within the UP, we were informed
the primary reason for the discomissioning of ELF is the various eco
gruops were making it too expenseive to use and maintain (both by court
chalangce and sabotage) but I am about 100 nw of the elf stie and still
a fair distance south of the Us canada border
