The Landers Facility of Eric Dollard and Walter Deroche

Main Terminal Pole
Main Terminal Pole

Original working Advanced Seismic Warning System in Landers, California. Was also a tactical HF communications facility. Also an HF surveillance facility for locating sources of interference and spurious signals. Had an Earth stereo system to use the Earth itself as a concert hall. Location of the first fully developed Alexanderson antenna of my (Eric Dollard’s) design for telluric studies.

My original discoveries of the inner workings of the Alexanderson System were made at the RCA Station in Bolinas, California. The details of these discoveries in both historical and theoretical form are outlined in the Wireless Giant of the Pacific. The discoveries made there led to the development in the advancement upon the ideas of Alexanderson to create an antenna of extraordinary performance in the extraction of telluric impulses from the interior of the Earth.

The materials for the Landers facilities were primarily gathered from the RCA installation in Bolinas and from decades of working the surplus business in the Los Angeles area. The installation took 20 years to construct. Passed the proof of performance test for its advanced warning of major earthquakes of 6.0 or greater in the Southern California area. The next step was to link the facility as a civil defense installation relating to advanced seismic warning to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power the Southern California Gas Company and the San Bernadino County Office of Emergency Services. This never transpired.

The property was wrongly taken from me ending up in the hands of Owen Bales who then proceeded to declare me as a squatter, had me forced off the property by the San Bernadino County Sheriff’s Office and the entire installation was looted. In it’s entirety, it represents a $1.5 Million Dollar loss. Most of the components and equipment can never be found again. The parts inventory alone was worth $500,000 Dollars. All the equipment was hand built by myself over a period of 20 years. I had developed the ability to manufacture the equipment in the manner required by Western Electric and the United States Navy. Everything shown in the photographs was built out of scrap from RCA and the surplus business.

In the span of the next two years, Southern California will be hit by a massive earthquake. This installation could have alerted the utility companies of a forecasted event in the making giving them the “finger on the button” to shut down gas and electrical supplies at the onset of the disaster. The County of San Bernadino Board of Supervisors Office refused to take the site under eminent domain, which can be considered an act of malfeasance particularly being that I offered to give them the entire site and maintain it for them for free. The last event recorded at the installation was the great Japanese quake. The electrical signals arrived at Landers two days before the event. The main event knocked the seismograph silly at Landers, which is understandable since it was the most sensitive seismograph in existence. The charts showing this disappeared in the looting. Copies were made in the day of the event by the San Bernadino’s Supervisors Office, which doesn’t seem willing to provide copies of them. This is all gone now. Ultimately, there will be no money or time to rebuild anything to provide warning for the next earthquake. That’s the end of that.

The following pictures are of charts recorded with the system at Landers showing the activity levels for various earthquakes. These were done on the mechanical seismograph system.

Mexico Earthquake
Mexico Earthquake

April 4th 2010 at 22:40:41 UTC 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake as recorded by our monitoring station in Southern California. Noteworthy is the slowly increasing needle deflection leading up to the quake more than 24 hours before the actual quake and the fore-shocks which seem to occur at approximately 4 hour intervals. It was obvious that something big was about to happen. If we had two other stations in operation we could likely have pinpointed the location.

 

 

 

Chilean Earthquake
Chilean Earthquake

27th of February, 2010 at 6:34:14 UTC as recorded by our monitoring station in Southern California. Please ignore the green line on the left which is the signal from our underground antenna recorded at a previous time and has no relevance to the Chilean Quake (due to a paper shortage, some of the rolls are run through a different chart recorder again). As more of preceding and following parts of the chart become available they will be posted.

 

 

Haiti Earthquake
Haiti Earthquake

12th of January, 2010 at 21:53:10 UTC as recorded by our monitoring station in Southern California. Notice the initial shock-wave at 2:00 PM with the reactionary wave following 20 minutes thereafter.

 

 

 

 

 

Haiti Earthquake
Haiti Earthquake

Here is an except from one of our January chart rolls, beginning at aprox. 2:00 PM PST on Saturday, January 09, 2010 and ending on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at around 10:00 PM leading up to the the Haiti Quake. The individual sheets were scanned and combined using CS2. The file is 3.9 MB. The quake closest to the top is the Haiti quake and the one towards the bottom is the 6.5 magnitude California Offshore quake which occurred on Saturday January 09 2010 at 4:30 PM.

 

 

 

 

Indian Ocean Earthquake
Indian Ocean Earthquake

This is an oldie but goodie: The 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake which occurred on Dec 26, 2004 at 00:58:53 UTC, estimated at 9.1 to 9.3 on the Richter Scale.

What is significant about this chart is that it is easy to see – to the degree of being obvious, that something is brewing 12 hours in advance…

 

 

 

1.) Seismograph is securely anchored to a three mile in-diameter boulder, most of which is buried below ground. This large rock formation is believed to actually protrude more than several miles into the earth’s crust. We don’t know for sure yet, how deep it all goes…

2.) Signal amplification. The terminals of our in ground sensors have a 10 to the 12th power gain or amplification to the deflector plates in the scope. The paper chart-recorder is adjusted down to a level that yields good results somewhere around 10 to the 8th, without minor insignificant noise, throwing it all off…

1 YEAR DATA CHART

Transmission System Structure A52-W – Beginning of the Project

This is the stereophonic counterpart to the transmission system structure A52-E for determining the physical origin of the telluric signals. The distance between structures is approximately 200 miles.

The major effort was digging guy a guy anchor hole five feet deep in the rock to replace a dead end guy on a telephone cable facility. Also, the effort was made to gather up approximately five miles of abandoned open mile line to use in constructing the new transmission structures. Much more is still needed and no availability has been found yet.

 

 

DBR Line Main Repeater Office

This is a continuation of the previous DBR photo gallery. This facility amplified the signal and regulated the gain of the auxillary repeaters along the line. Repeater spacing 50 miles. Shown is the O Carrier terminal facility equipment from inside the building shown.

Historic DBR Carrier Telephone Line

World War 2 emergency defense backup route long distance communication system of J Carrier variety. Later converted to O Carrier for civilian use. Was specifically constructed as an inland major communications link in the event that the West Coast was attacked by the Japanese. It started in Washington state and ended in Los Angeles, California. Only 15 miles left standing shown in the photographs. Line is in very bad shape and ultimately will have to be removed.

Primary Toll & Autovon Switching Center Joint Bell Telephone & USAF North American Air Defense Installation Nucelar Attack Resistant

Major communications tie for military and civilian communications. Also contained Strategic Air Command control consoles to be used in the event of nuclear combat. Presently, the operation is abandoned.

Bell Telephone Outside Plant TD2 Microwave Antenae

Historic obsolete multiplex microwave communication system for Bell Telephone built by Western Electric. Carried television broadcasts, multi-channel long distance telephone message circuits, military autovon circuits. Transcontinental system repeater spacing 30 miles. Total system capacity 10,500 telephone channels.
