Mystery of the Eltanin Antenna



21-Jul-2001



Between 1962 and 1979 the NSF Polar Research Vessel

Object Photographed by USNS Eltanin

Eltanin surveyed Antarctic waters, studying the ocean and ocean bottom. In 1964, the ship photographed an unusual object at a depth of 13,500 feet. At the time, there was no submarine that could have carried a piece of technology to this depth.

The object appears to be a pole rising from the ocean floor with twelve spokes radiating from it, each ending in a sphere. The spokes are at fifteen degree angles to each other. It is located approximately 1,000 miles south of Cape Horn, beneath some of the most inhospitable seas in the world.

Marine biologists have speculated that it might be some sort of an organism, largely because it is otherwise so difficult to explain. However, there is no known form of marine life that looks remotely like this object.

There exists the possibility that it is an antenna or other scientific instrument that was lost by an early research vessel, but once again, this would appear to be a very forced explanation. It seems unlikely that an object could drop through three miles of ocean, and anchor itself on the bottom.

In addition, the position of the antenna is so exact, and so strangely significant, that it would seem almost certain that it was intentionally put there. Who did it, with what technology and why remains unknown. However, it's clear that there could be an enormous secret connected with the Eltanin antenna, and one that might not be entirely unknown to certain members of the scientific community, as will be seen.

Researcher Bruce Cathie, a New Zealander who, among other things, had a famous series of UFO sightings, has developed a theory about the antenna based on its position on the planet. Cathie's theories suggest that the antenna may be part of an ancient planetary grid that is of fundamental importance to an understanding of our planet and the great 25,000 year cycle known as the precession of the equinox.

Could it be possible that the Eltanin Antenna is a piece of ancient technology, or even technology that comes from another world? Cathie certainly thinks so. Other researchers are now suggesting that modern science might be well aware of the purpose of the object, and might be actively monitoring it or using it in some way.

Mr. Cathie considers 144, the harmonic recriprocal of the speed of light, to be an important measure of the earth's grid because it divides into the planet's 21,600 minutes of arc exactly 150 times. An individual interested in Cathie's ideas began measuring outward in steps from the antenna, and to his surprise found that the Prospect Point Antarctic Base is precisely eight of these measures away. Add another unit of 144 and you find two more antarctic bases, Hemus and St. Kilmet.

Remarkably, a whole array of bases and earthquake stations surround the Eltanin Antenna. What this may mean is unknown, but it is certainly suggestive that the Eltanin antenna is no strange marine creature, but rather an object of great importance, that somebody understands very well.

I think that it is just something that was washed down there from a storm. Who says it's set up there?

Did they bury the antenna in the sea because they were stealing premium channels from Mars without paying?

I have experience with numerous antennas. Personally, a good dipole is best for anything in the shortwave bands, but I must admit that the old Antron 99 vertical is a great stick for punching out in the 10 and 11 meter bands.

It seems unlikely that an object could drop through three miles of ocean, and anchor itself on the bottom.

As opposed to what other outcome?

Heavy, steel, iron, etc., etc. objects can reach speeds over 400 mph if they descend in sufficiently deep water. (Read about the SSNThresher.)

A massive, steel and iron (foundation or step for the anntena on the ship) assembly breaks loose from its ship and impales itelf solidly in the bottom.

Not an unlikely event--right?

One of the Commision must go wipe their minds of the memory.

Not even if I could use it to get home again.

In all seriousness, what is that thing, and why does it remind me of a couple of jax glued together?

400 MPH. You sure? That sounds quite a bit faster than the free fall rate through the air (terminal velocity...I think is in the neighborhood of 286 ft per second).

a) Captain Nemo left it there

b) It is an underwater cloth drying hanger

c) Finally, "evidence" against rep. Traficant ("Bemammeup whoever...") planted by DummycRATS

Simple, just look for the feedline and where it leads to. Maybe it leads to Osborne's Atlantis MTV.

Only counts for low density stuff. Now you get a really dense nickel-iron meteor, whizzing along at 15,000 mph relative to Earth, and it is NOT GOING TO SLOW DOWN to 286 feet per second as it enters the atmosphere and punches a hole in a car in Australia or New Zealand!

I agree, nothing beats a good dipole. Except maybe three aces and a good tower mounted Yagi.

True enough. But I'll put my refurbished Super Penetrator 500 up against anybody's Antron.

WOW!!

And the square root of 144 is 12.

And if you then add the number 7 (a prime number! a prime number!), you get:

NINETEEN!!

See?

And a new mathematical concept is introduced here: the recriprocal!

Any relation to the reciprocal?

Terminal velocity in air and water depend on cross sectional density more than anything. In air, the terminal velocity of a feather is considerably different than the terminal velocity of an anvil.

The "antenna" could be nothing more than something dropped overboard that impacted vertically and is stuck in the muck.

One comment: most objects at the bottom of the ocean, including metal, eventually acquire a coating of marine life and silt... this does not appear to have such on it.

Where can I buy a hat like this one? It has a nice design and looks impermeable to incoming waves of UFO-generated brain scramblers. I saw an antenna like this one at KMart. They are called rabbit ears and pick up TV, radio and UFO signals.

If I wanted it down there, whatever it is, I wouldn't try to "carry it down." I'd drop it from the surface.

Reminds me of Stan Laurel throwing Oliver Hardy a rope when the latter is stuck on a roof. "Tie it around your waist!"

Fine antenna, that. The A99 works much, MUCH better with the ground plane kit though.

It's a good thing the aliens have divided their circles into the same size arcs as we have (60x360). That number must have universal significance. Without it, we would have never decoded their intentions. It's also a good thing we invented tin foil in time for this. If the aliens had come two hundred years ago, we'd be their slaves for sure.

It seems unlikely that an object could drop through three miles of ocean, and anchor itself on the bottom.

Why? If there were a big honkin' weight on the end of it (like a transducer or power supply), the weight would sink first, taking the antenna with it and burying itself in the sea bottom when it hit.

Your talking about deceleration. An object being dropped into water starts at 0 mph and will accelerate as it plunges to the bottom.

I think Rudder's estimation of 400 mph in water is a bit optimistic. Water is 1000 times denser than air and it's unlikely that any object can reach that speed even from from 5 miles up while starting at 0 mph.

Interesting.... it would have to be pretty massive (low frequency), however, to propagate an EM wave through saltwater.
