Abstract : The WIPP (Wave Induced Particle Precipitation) Program required that a series of unique modulation (keying) events be transmitted from the U.S. Navy Very Low Frequency (VLF) transmitter at Annapolis, Md. Support was provided in assisting the Scientific Officer (ONR Code 1114) in negotiations with the cognizant Navy Broadcast Control Authority, and the Operational COmmanders of the facility, for the cooperative use of the Annapolis VLF broadcast transmitter. Additionally, unique keyers, previously developed to support the Stimulated Emission of Energetic Particles (SEEP) experiment, which performed keying events similar to those needed by the WIPP program were tested, and repaired as required, and installed at Annapolis. Finally, Navy personnel at Annapolis were trained in the use of the keyers, and instructed in the provision of support to the WIPP experiment.
