HAIKU VALLEY

Your Bio

BELIEVE IT OR NOT! A secret navy radio station hidden in an extinct volcano, used a pre-World War 1 AC motor-generator to send radio signals to submarines during World War 2 - while they remained underwater - as far away as Tokyo Bay.
THE 200,000 watt ALEXANDERSON ALTERNATOR.

The story of Haiku Naval Radio Station, located on Oahu Hawaii, begins in the
HIGH SCALERS OF HAIKU
gallery. It shows Adams' and Otto's heroic scaling of the valley's south cliff in 1942. Their 21 day climb, made possible the installation of the Haiku Ladder (Called The Stairway to Heaven), five unsupported antenna cables, stretched across the valley at elevations exceeding 2,500 feet. And, most important, the successful operation of the Alexanderson Alternator.

Check out the HAIKU OMEGA AID TO NAVIGATION STATION gallery.
Amazing Omega equipment replaced the Haiku Alternators in the early 1970s.
Also view photos of the seven other Omega stations located in: Argentina, Australia, Japan, LaReunion, Liberia, North Dakota and Norway.
      Their coordinated cesium clock-controlled signals produced the only world wide radio navigation system in existence from 1973 to1997.
