Duga…an over-the-horizon (OTH) radar system used as part of the Soviet anti-ballistic missile early-warning network. The system operated from July 1976 to December 1989. The Duga radar system was nicknamed ‘The Russian Woodpecker’ by amateur radio operators, because of the sharp and repetitive 10Hz tapping noise it created on shortwave radio bands. This noise wasn’t perceived for many years, but rumor goes it’s recently been detected again. The Duga radar system has also been called ‘The Eye of Moscow’, which was part of speculation that the system was used for mind-control and weather-control.
