An article from the AUGUST 2011 issue of THE STAR BEACON.

“UFO Sighted When USAF Lost Control of 50 ICBMs In October 2010” was the headline I spotted while browsing stories on Clicking the headline links up to a Reuters story written by Robert Hastings, author of UFOs and Nukes; Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites.

Apparently, a huge cigar-shaped craft was spotted by multiple witnesses, both civilian and military, hovering over the missile field and jamming communications with the missiles for 59 minutes. The Air Force’s public face didn’t seem too upset about it, but some witnesses have reported receiving threats of severe penalties from their commanders for talking to reporters or researchers.

I’ll bet the top brass are going nuts over incidents like this. And this is not the first time UFOs have visited nuclear sites. In the 1980s, UFOs hovered over missile fields in North Dakota and Russia at about the same time. Communication with the missiles was lost. The Russian witnesses reported that they were afraid the missiles they were supposed to control were way out of control and were going to launch.

Soon after these events, President Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev had their famous meeting and some things changed. For the first time in history, the superpowers began reducing nuclear weapons stockpiles. On the 21st of September, 1987, President Reagan, in an address to the UN said this:

“In our obsessions of antagonisms of the moment we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences, worldwide, would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world ...”

What if, instead of an alien threat, we were on the verge (in the late 1990s) of useful contact with the ETs visiting here? Then came 9-11 and the wars that followed that horrible disaster. I think the ETs, whoever they are, were close to ready for some form of contact, but now, I think they may be confused and have postponed their plans. If they wanted to be a threat to this planet, I think they would have no problems in doing so, as their level of technology seems to still be beyond the understanding of our black budget scientists and engineers.

The Rendlesham Forest Incident in 1980 is of particular interest to Mr. Hastings. The facts of this complex case were documented by many British and American military people. Using energy-scanning beams of unknown type, the UFOs expressed an interest in the nuclear weapons stored there. You can read the whole story at the Wikipedia link below. Linda Howe has also done a huge amount of new research into this fascinating case. About six months ago, she reported live on both Coast to Coast AM and Rense Radio, including her exclusive interviews with several witnesses. Visit her Web site at the earthfiles link below.

Jamming has been around almost as long as radio. In the ’70s and ’80s, the Soviet Union had hundreds of transmitters that were built for the primary purpose of preventing people living behind their “Iron Curtain” from hearing shortwave broadcasts from the West like VOA (Voice of America) and BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) radio. It was actually a cold war of radio waves. After the fall of the “Iron Curtain,” the jamming transmitters, which were expensive to operate, disappeared.

Few people in North America own a shortwave radio. If they did, they could hear a variety of broadcasts from other countries. Many, including RCI (Radio China International), have English language service. If you want to get started with shortwave radio, a good place to start is the C. Crane Co. (link below.)

It is obvious to me that some UFOs have the equipment needed to jam our military communications signals. Many billions of dollars have been spent on research and development to make our military systems hardened against just this sort of jamming. So the occupants of the UFOs seem to have the ability to generate powerful RF signals that have the ability to penetrate into the Air Force’s hardened systems. If this isn’t a serious attempt at communication, albeit one way, I don’t know what is!

Breaking News: ”Aliens Getting Less Camera Shy? UFOs Over London.” Just a few weeks ago, London was visited by a large saucer accompanied by five smaller craft. Many witnesses gathered on the street near the BBC Yalding House building, taking pictures and video of the visit. I find it very interesting that they chose to hover for a while around the BBC building, thus helping the photographers. Visit the dailymail link below to see the pictures and read the story.

A well known fact of ufology is that there have been more UFO sightings per square mile (or kilometer) over Washington, DC, than anywhere else on the planet! The sightings there have been happening for a very long time, starting in the mid 1800s. In next month’s Radio Waves, we will take a look at this phenomena in more detail, so be sure to tune in to The Star Beacon’s September issue.
