China has finished building a secret antennae FIVE times the size of New York City after 13 years
China has completed construction of a secretive project to build a giant antennae five times the size of New York City.
The experimental radio antennae is rumoured to have taken 13 years to finish and will communicate long range with military submarines.
Extremely low frequency radio waves (ELF waves) will be emitted by the machine which will send messages to subs hundreds of metres underwater.
The Wireless Electro-magnetic Method (WEM) project is officially pegged for use on earthquake and mineral detection and but has clear potential applications for the military.
China has been hotly pursuing ELF technology for some time and the facility, which sits on a 1,400 square mile (3,700 sq km) patch of land, is the culmination of the technology.

OK, Im sorry but the US has been communicating anywhere on earth using very long underground antennas at very low low freq.

This one similar to the HAARP System in the west?

"Extremely low frequency radio waves (ELF waves) will be emitted by the machine which will send messages to subs hundreds of metres underwater. " ......... They're only five or six decades behind the West!

Well if it's a secret how does DM know about It?

We are watching the slow decline of the USA as the main police force of the world and worl power. It's gradually retreating behind its own borders. The slow rise of China as the new global power has arrived..

Five times the size of New York City and no one can find it?

Britain the US and Russia already use these type of radios to keep in touch with their subs. Why is Chinas any worse?

Shhh it's a secret that no one knows about apart from the DM.
The Americans wanted to make one this size in the 1960s but settled for one smaller which started transmissions in 1982 and stopped in 2004. Russia and India also constructed arrays. So this is news eh? The UK used to have at least 5 VLF transmitter stations transmitting at around 10-20Khz.

The Royal Navy's been using VLF carriers to talk to our own subs for decades. Nothing secret about this tech at all.

China science and tech is improving at a rapid pace.
Using technology that other powers have been using for years
balwant singh, India, India
china is pulling ahead at amazing speed.

They just do what they want. No thought for humans or the environment.

The UK has used Low Frequency radio wave for decades to communicate with submarines and the mining industry has also used the wave to detect magnetic anomalies to detect ore bodies. This is not something new, but it is on a much larger and more powerful scale.

Not much of a secret now is it.
wasntMe, South East, United Kingdomo
Don't worry it will only last two weeks.
Cherub45, Chester, United Kingdom
How can you hide something 5x the size of New York?

It's been in use for 50 odd years
