Today's my first day at the NIRA site, and frankly, I'm quite nervous. According to the committee members that offered me the job, I'll be the youngest PhD in ionospheric physics at the facility.

I'm eager to show everyone I can handle any task they throw my way, regardless of its complexity. I have a meeting scheduled for noon today with the site's supervisor, Dr. Dyal Ojha. Hopefully, he'll recognize my scholastic accomplishments and assign me to something challenging.

It's Thanksgiving Day, and instead of spending time in Iowa with my folks, I've decided to stick it out at the facility to finish up the first round of my project.

Dr. Ojha's current project focuses on "data sonification filtering" - removing unnecessary background noise that the NIRA array picks up from various stellar phenomena such as plasma waves, planetary radio emissions and particles striking our planet's magnetosphere. It's actually quite noisy up there in space!

My particular job is to classify each individual sound and then create a filter so it can be removed from the array's desired frequency range. I'm almost done with my first quadrant, then I'll head home.

I don't know if it's just stress or the long hours, but lately, I've been suffering from intermittent headaches. I tried to mitigate the pain with over-the-counter meds, but they've proven to be ineffective.

After chatting with my co-workers, I've discovered a few of them suffer the same issue. I think I'll visit to the site's medical doctor and see what she has to say. For now, I need to move on to quadrant three of my project. I can't let something as trivial as a headache scuttle my work for Dr. Ojha.

I'm happy to report that the site doctor seemed to know exactly what was causing my headaches. Apparently, the equipment at the site generates an excess of electromagnetic radiation.

Thanks to dielectric heating, the EM field around here is "cooking" my brain at a very minor level - not enough to cause damage, but painful nonetheless. The doctor issued me a shielded lab hood to wear, which might make me look as ridiculous as the others I've seen wearing them, but at least I can get back to work.

It's funny. I've been hard at work on the fifth quadrant for my project, but I can't help being distracted by the whole headache/EM field debacle I suffered. I spent the last month or so juggling the original project with finding out why this array is giving off such a huge EM field.

According to my investigation, the NIRA shouldn't be outputting so much electromagnetic energy. It's almost as if they aren't using it in a narrow band as expected, but trying to cover a huge area at all once. I'm not sure what all of this means, but it's certainly piqued my interest.

Still nothing. I think I'm still getting too much interference over here. We need to completely eliminate the possibility of local radio interference from the equation. That means all frequencies except for this one. If we can blank them all out for even just an hour, we can make sure to get a clean signal. I know you said it'd take some time and resources to get that done, but we're really close!

Your request to divert power from the main grid has been approved. We'll send a trusted contractor in to complete the necessary work. You should be able to have everything up and running by the end of next week.

Let us know when you schedule the test so we can mobilize on our end. Remember, for every skeptic we've got over here, there's someone who thinks we can't be prepared enough.

What was that?

I don't know what you did over there, but something seems wrong. My head's pounding, like the worst migraine I've ever had. We've got people crawling around on hands and knees and vomiting. The pain is beyond intense!

Success!

Ok, you were right, we gave it a shot. The signal is finally clear as day. Transmissions were sent and received. Sorry I'm not more enthusiastic right now, but it's hard to think with this nauseating headache.

I'm going to give it another half hour or so before we just can't stand it any more. Maybe by then we'll be able to figure out what we're looking at here.

Shut it down, IMMEDIATELY, then turn on the news. Looks like the effect was at least as far out as Clarksburg. People are asking questions. We'll make up something. I don't know; solar flare disturbing magnetic activity, or some nonsense the public will belive.

For now, we got enough data over here at Site B. If that's what it takes to do this again, we may have to table the program for now and start it up again at one of the more remote sites.
