Pine Gap: Australia's Area 51

There are at least ten top secret American facilities in
Australia, with the so called ‘Joint Defense Space Research
facility’ at Pine Gap, a multi-billion dollar operation,
being the most important.

Originally, Pine Gap was decreed to control and act as a
downlink for geosynchronous satellites gathering intelligence,
stationed over the Pacific and Asia by the CIA, NSA and NRO.
Construction was undertaken solely by American contractors flying
in, making it operational by 1970. Large underground facilities
are rumoured to extend twelve levels below the base. Long tunnels
are laid out in a similar pattern to the spokes of a wheel and
extend several miles from the centre. A secret nuclear reactor is
installed in a deep shielded underground chamber. Reportedly,
extending five miles below the base is a bore hole containing an
ultra low frequency antenna which is apparently used for secret
experiments - supposedly related to Nicola Tesla's resonance
theories, as well as low frequency communications throughout the
world. Pine Gap's communication systems are the most
sophisticated available, utilizing satellites, microwave,
low-frequency and their own dedicated cable to the US. They are
directly connected to Nurrunga, North West Cape, Geraldton,
Australian Defense Signals Directorate in Melbourne, Canberra,
Sydney, all CIA and NSA stations, ASIO, SIS and the Australian
Defense Science and Technology Organization which deals with UFOs
and crash retrievals. Pine Gap has eight white radomes placed
near groups of long low buildings. Miles away a double security
fence is patrolled by Americans and Australian Police. There is a
five mile no fly zone. Pine Gap is now being expanded with a
second above ground power station and additional housing for
staff of around 1,200 in 1996. The reason : "Asian economic

A major NSA defector revealed that US has been carrying out
continuous research into electromagnetic propulsion at Pine Gap
since 1966, which was originally started in US after the war.
Security aspects have included hypnotic and post hypnotic keys
planted in personnel prior into acceptance into the project. A
man has claimed his father worked on UFOs at Pine Gap. He worked
for the FAA in 1970 fixing the programming of mainframe
computers. He was one of only two or three in the US who knew
whatever program they were installing. During the late 70’s
he made several trips to Australia. When his father came to
visit, he had a locked briefcase that was chained to him. They
were then followed everywhere. His father said he was working on
a flying saucer, involved with anti-gravity propulsion, melding
the computer elements together for the guidance or stability part
of it, underground at Pine Gap.

Pine Gap locals have seen 30 ft wide white disks being unloaded
from large US cargo planes at the airports with the USAF emblem
on them. Many are seen flying at night. Much furniture has been
delivered. An enormous amount of food is apparently stocked in
warehouses of what could be a multi-leveled underground city. DR
Jean Francois Gille writes that shares put on the market at the
same time will cause a world stock market crash. Cash will be
worthless and the risks of a global planned confrontation will be
high. Underground bases will serve as a place of safety for
politicians and international financiers. Plastic cards will be
necessary and the setting up of a world government ensuring
‘peace'. Many will be taken to concentration camps. Our
new ‘Masters’ have the alien’s support that
they have made alliances with. William Cooper says all the CIA
Directors and Secretaries of State were all members of the
Council on Foreign Relations and also the MJ 12, which includes
Kissinger. They rule US. The secret government kill
America’s children for the alien projects according to
their agreements with alien nations to rule the world jointly.
They can make US currency worthless at any time and bring
everyone under control with their global credit card. In 1996
witnesses saw a triangular craft descend at an area west of Pine
Gap and many UFOs have been seen coming and going regularly from
camouflaged entrances at Pine Gap. Scientists and various aliens,
(mostly reptilians claiming to have once originated from earth,
with DNA of a 2 legged earth sauroid) that the US govt. has made
alliances with work together underground there. Genetic research
in the form of human/alien hybridization and anti-gravity
experimentation is done at Pine Gap and other underground US

Stan Deyo also asks if Pine Gap could be a man-made city of
multiple levels, used to shelter key US personnel in the event of
some disaster. Among some of the major contractors and suppliers
for Pine Gap have been Collins Radio, McMahon Construction, LTV
aero-space company, a conglomerate of electronics and aircraft
manufacturing subsidiaries and IBM Stan says it is rumoured that
there are super IBM computer systems on a floating platform,
‘down the well’ underneath the facility. IBM has
mammoth computers which can recognize both voice and visual
patterns. Their main memory sizes are said to be in excess of
2,000,000,000 bytes. The first 2 antennas for controlling and
communicating with satellites were constructed in 1966-67. In
1974 unauthorized photos and other information from inside the
faculty are reported to have been sold to Russia. In 1991 Pine
Gap was instrumental in tracking Iraqi SCUD missiles, with
satellite imagery tracking the Iraqi troops. Diane Harrison wrote
there are now about 18 satellite control antennas, making it one
of the largest satellite control stations in the world for
satellites parked in fixed orbits above the equator. The most
recent satellites are 300 feet diameter. They intercept signals
in the VHF, UHF and millimetre wave frequency bands. Within that
frequency there are 4 categories of signals. The first category
monitors signals transmitted in the course of advanced weapons
development, particularly ballistic missiles. The first
satellites were designed for this and monitored Russian missile
development programs and now monitors other countries. The newer
satellites are now primarily for the Soviet Union. This
intelligence is shared. The second category monitors signals from
large radars, including ones associated with anti-ballistic
missile fields. air defense radars, radars on ships. Analysis of
this tells lot about the capabilities of those anti-missile and
anti-aircraft systems in the various air defense fields around
the globe.

Thirdly intercepting the communications of other satellite
systems, i.e. communications which are going up from ground to
communication satellites which are also based in fixed orbits.
Listening satellites parked close to the communications
satellites. Finally they monitor a wide range of other microwave
emissions on the earth’s surface including: long distance
phone calls transmitted via terrestrial microwave circuits
enabling them to monitor military, political and government
agencies or private individuals. Diane says that a satellite can
be parked over the interior of a country and intercept the
microwave emissions coming from it. The satellites are under the
control of the CIA, who in turn answer to the NRO (National
Reconnaissance Office). There are 8 large radomes, that cover the
antenna arrays which keeps sand etc. away and conceal the
antenna’s position from enemy spy satellites. There are a
wide range of communication devices: HF radio, underground cable,
telstra telephone and telex, 2 satellites communication terminals
to occupy the on average 1,200 staff. The staff have to wear
colour coded ID to match the colour ribbons running along the
walls. US Military Airlift Command carry thousands of tapes home
for further study and send parts and supplies twice weekly. There
are direct links from Pine Gap to the US bases in the
Philippines, Guam, Krugerdorp South Africa and the Amundsen-Scott
base at the South Pole.

The computer room is one of the biggest in the world and the
operators use headsets to communicate. Within the central
operations building at Pine Gap people are keeping the satellite
and its antenna focused on the signals they are intercepting.
Then other staff process the enormous volume of interpreted
signals. Then the signals are analyzed for intelligence data. Up
to 1980 Australians were not allowed access to the voice
intercepts, coming into the signal analysis section. But now they
have full access to all areas except the cryptographic room,
officially anyway. Univac computers encrypt transmissions,
including voices and these go to Redondo Beach in California.
About 25 to 30 messages are sent from Pine Gap each day to US and
about half go to the CIA headquarters in Langley Virginia. Though
occasionally data is sent directly to the NRO Headquarters in the
Pentagon, or to the NSA headquarters at Fort Meade Maryland.
Diane writes that there is a group called the Joint
Reconnaissance Schedule committee, who meet each morning to
decide who is going to be listened to for the next 24 hours to
focus the antennas on the satellites. e.g. who is doing a missile
test, or if a political crisis occurs somewhere. A similar
station to Pine Gap is located in South Africa with 1,200 staff
and is also linked to another VLF station at the South

Dr Gille writes that Pine Gap has enormous computers connected to
US, Krugersdorp South Africa, Guam, Canberra, Antarctica US base
counterparts, which collect information from these countries,
about finance, technology, and everything about people. The
Amundsen-Scott base at the South Pole is located on a sensitive
magnetic spot of our planet, in that it holds exactly the same
assets as Pine Gap, and that all the information about most of
the average citizens of Western Europe is stored there in memory
banks tens of meters under the icepack. Canberra computers were
connected to all banks, every post office, all telephones, all
police stations and customs houses, every arrival and departure
desk for air or sea travelers and to the other data centers
collecting data on private citizens in America and Europe. All
financial, economic, political and military information about
every citizen of the Western World is being stored. The president
of the Rockefeller Foundation arranged the construction of 20
luxury residences in Canberra, to accommodate the world

In Silent Partners: The UKUSA Agreement by Susan Bryce
( says there are about 48 years of SIGINT
(satellite signal intelligence) shared by the UKUSA partners: US,
Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea and the
NATO nations. ( Possibly Germany, Norway, Turkey and China are in
too.) As well as communications interception and satellite spying
there is an interest in undersea activities. (There are said to
be over 1,400 alien bases here on this planet including undersea.
) The UKUSA pact has been gathering intelligence on the former
Soviet empire for 40 years. Pine Gap, Nurrangar and Menwith Hill
operate under this pact. Menwith Hill covers communications and
phone calls between USA and Europe in UK. The NSA which runs this
controls over 2,000 electronic intercept stations, with 130,000
personnel around the world. The primary purpose of the NSA was
started to decipher alien communications, language and establish
dialogue. In 1983 the NSA established a worldwide computer
network linking 52 separate government computer systems used
throughout the world. All the information ends up at NSA’s
Headquarters in Maryland. So it can plug into each phone call and
message in USA, UK and Australia using the US base, Pine Gap and
the new installation at Geraldton in Western Australia.

Patrick Poole wrote an very complete analysis and here is a
summary: Echelon based at Pine Gap is the technological spy
system intercepting all phone calls, faxes, emails and telexes in
the world mainly by satellite. Plus other satellites, microwaves
signals, cellular and fibre-optic cable communications traffic.
Real time phone calls in USA could be listened to at an outpost
of Echelon at Menwith Hill in UK. Commercial espionage can be
beneficial to the companies that helped the NSA develop the
systems that power the Echelon network. This can also be used to
push American manufacturers out of deals in favor of US defense
and intelligence contractors, who frequently finance both
political parties. The European Parliament is asking if this
violates the sovereignty and privacy of citizens in other
countries. Though UK does allow surveillance on its own citizens,
Menwith Hill and Pine Gap cover US citizens. Echelon stations are
all over the globe, from Geraldton W. Australia, Waihopai New
Zealand, Ascension Island in the Atlantic, the Indian ocean atoll
of Diego Garcia, Guam and the Philippines in the Pacific, to
South Africa, Misawa Japan to Leitrim Canada. Pine Gap, Menwith
Hill, Bad Aibling Germany, Colorado USA and Antarctica are main
centers. No communications signal escapes the electronic net. The
two primary downlink facilities for over 25 satellites acting as
giant scoops picking up info from all electronic communications
are at Menwith Hill in North York Moors UK and Pine Gap. Menwith
Hill has 1,400 American NSA personnel and 350 UK Ministry of
Defense staff on site.

Menwith Hill goes back to 1951 and received one of the first
sophisticated IBM computers in the early 1960’s. The NSA
took it over in 1966. British Telecom wires fibre-optic telephone
trunklines capable of carrying 100,000 calls simultaneously
through Menwith Hill. It has become a target for peace activists.
Echelon decrypts, filters, examines and codifies messages into
selective categories for further analysis by intelligence from
the various UKUSA agencies. Menwith Hill SILKWORTH super-computer
operates voice recognition and optical character recognition and
feeds them into data recognition engines. Voice recognition
programs convert talk into text messages for further analysis and
even individual voices can be targeted, so every call they make
is transcribed. Each message is given a 4 digit code as to its
source e.g. 5535 for Japanese diplomatic traffic. Keywords are
kept up to date by Dictionary Managers. Messages are transmitted
to each agency’s headquarters via a global computer system
that acts as the nervous system.
