    Default U.S. Suspects Russia Used a Microwave Weapon Against Americans. Does It Even Exist?

    the military has always hoped for death rays. Masers, microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation, and lasers, the same but for light, offered some of the characteristics of a death ray. Their wave structure was coherent—all the waves were lined up—and collimated into a fine beam. All that was needed was more energy. Scientists and engineers started working on these possibilities back in the 1970s, some of them alongside the laser isotope separation program where I worked. None of this research has yet resulted in usable or practical weapons.

    if this weapon exists, knowing how it works is critical. The NAS report fails to make this connection. The references are weak, and the committee includes no experts in microwaves and their effects. The committee is made up mostly of experts in medical-related fields. Only two out of 19 seem likely to have any expertise in microwave technology, and it is not their specialty. The section of the report on microwave effects contains about a dozen references spanning 40 years and more. The older references are probably less reliable. The studies include microwave effects on cell cultures, rats, and rhesus monkeys, and only one discusses effects at all similar to Havana syndrome.

    In 1961, the neuroscientist Allan H. Frey reported that pulsed microwave radiation can cause people to hear clicking and other sounds without an actual sound being produced. This is the National Academies report’s strongest connection between microwave radiation and neurological damage, and an extended explanation is given in Appendix C. There is ongoing argument, however, as to whether the Frey effect is real—and very little scientific research seems to have been done on it in the 50 years since it was discovered.

    With no clear biological connection of microwaves to Havana syndrome, it’s not possible to describe a weapon that would produce that syndrome. We do not know what frequency the supposed microwaves would be or whether they are pulsed or continuous.

    The evidence for microwave effects of the type categorized as Havana syndrome is exceedingly weak. No proponent of the idea has outlined how the weapon would actually work. No evidence has been offered that such a weapon has been developed by any nation. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and no evidence has been offered to support the existence of this mystery weapon.

    Something happened, and our experts have not been able to figure out what....that is a problem.

    Pretty sure those people felt the effects.

    Yep ... it's called an 834P jammer ... some of its frequencies are resonate with human dna

    even if it did, that would not bring on the symptoms commonly described

    and this thing would have to have a massive power source

    yes. so just do the usual and lay the blame at the Russians..
    all you ever got to do is say "Russia did it" and everyone nods in agreement

    so this thing has never been seen, it's unknown, but you know the power source?

    Probably. I don't think our Adversaries are just sitting around twiddling their fingers.

    Not trying to prove anything. It's a simple question. If the weapon doesn't exist, then what could have caused those symptoms?

    It has been known that people get sick from natural causes such as underground tremors and such.

    you just answered your own post. It could be different sources, assuming it's an actual hostile microwave transmission without ANY proof, is not even truthiness.

    And yet it is SPECIFIC to locations.
