$300 (US) REWARD FOR VERIFIABLE HARD COPY DOCUMENTATION OF
DR. JOSEPH P. SHARP'S VERBAL PULSED MICROWAVE
VOICE TO SKULL SUCCESS IN THE EARLY 1970'S AT WRAIR
OR OTHER VERIFIABLE SUCCESSES
November 7, 1999
None as of November 7, 1999.
Researcher Margo adds $100 to the reward pot!!
This offer is for the FIRST VERIFIABLE hard copy of this SUCCESSFUL
demonstration of Frey-type voice to skull technology. In summary,
this is for COURTROOM QUALITY documentation. Here are the conditions:
1. The documentation must contain at least one sentence that
says Dr. Joseph C. Sharp, or any other credible experimenter,
HEARD AND UNDERSTOOD WORDS transmitted via pulse modulated
microwave. "Buzzes, clicks, hums" or any audio effects
other than words DO NOT QUALIFY. The Joseph C. Sharp success
took place while working for Walter Reed Army Institute of
Research. Health Dept. project FD00650, early 70s.
This success was announced at an August 21, 1974 seminar
to the combined engineering and psychology faculties at
the University of Utah, Salt Lake City.
2. The documentation must contain official university or government
agency or laboratory identfication, including date. It is OK
if this documentation "cannot be found" after submission,
*PROVIDED* alternate verification of the prior existence of the
documentation submitted is SUCCESSFUL.
3. If the document is too bulky to qualify as letter mail, MAKE
CLEAR, PHOTOCOPIABLE/SCANNABLE photocopies with good contrast
and good alignment of BOTH the page(s) which describe the
experimental success, and the COVER(S) which serve to identify
the document. Please be careful to NOT cut off page numbers
and other bibliographic information.
A trailing list of REFERENCES should also be included.
Please cap the number of copied pages at 25.
4. WATCH THIS PAGE, above, in the space marked "UPDATES" to see if
anyone has already succeeded. This page is posted on two mirrored

5. The $200 US will be paid to a designated mailing address suitable
for REGISTERED mail, or to a bank account with electronic funds
transfer information provided. Margo's $100 pledge will be mailed
separately, by her, from her Oklahoma address.
6. I will attempt to verify based on the order of submissions, but
the first VERIFICATION, not initial submission, will be the
deciding factor in who gets the reward.
7. I will also pay, with RECEIPTS, reasonable expenses (EXCLUDING
travel) required to obtain the document. Such expenses
include but are not limited to document purchase, registered
mailing (not courier - too expensive), the one phone call (if any)
which produced the success. The cap on these receipted expenses
is $150 US.
8. Submissions are to be REGISTERED MAILED, WITH RETURN RECEIPT CARD,
to my home address at:
430 Cumberland Ave. #312
CANADA L8M 3M9
MAKE SURE THE FULL ADDRESS IS CAREFULLY PRINTED IN BOLD,
UPPER CASE LETTERS. Be especially careful in writing the
apartment number. Place the address on BOTH SIDES of the
Please mark on both sides of the envelope:
"Photocopies - no commercial value" ...to avoid customs

The closest we have come at date of writing to find documentation of
Joseph C. Sharp's success is at the bottom of an article sent to me
by Judy Wall, Editor, RESONANCE, the newsletter of the MENSA Bio-
electromagnetic special interest group. The article itself is titled:
MICROWAVES AND BEHAVIOR
[Dr.] Don R. Justesen
Laboratories of Experimental
Kansas City, Missouri
March 1975, pg 391-401
"This article is based on materials presented in a seminar to the
faculties of Psychology and Engineering at the University of Utah
(Salt Lake City, Utah) on Augst 21, 1974. The author's research
program is supported by the Veterans Administration and by U.S.
Public Health Service Grant FD00650.
"Acknowledged in the preparation of the manuscript are E. L. Wilke
and C. L. Sheridan, for a critical reading; KAy Wahl for artwork;
and Lynn Bruetsch and Virginia Florez for typing. I also thank
John Osepchuk of the Raytheon Corporation for his searching criticism
of the manuscript; our opinions differ, his advice is appreciated.
"Requests for reprints should be sent to Don. R. Justesen,
Laboratories of Experimental Neuropsychology, Veterans Administration
Hospital, Kansas City, Missouri 64128.
"The author is also at the Department of Psychiatry, Kansas University
Medical Center, Kansas City, Kansas 66103."
**Dr. Joseph C. Sharp at the time of this success was working for
Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, geographic location unknown.
**Here is the brief reference to voice to skull in this article
"Sharp and Grove (Note 2) found that appropriate modulation of
microwave energy can result in direct "wireless" and "receiverless"
communication of SPEECH." [Emphasis mine]
**Here is "Note 2":
"Sharp, J. C., & Grove, M. Personal communication, Sept. 28, 1973"
[By "personal communication", both Judy Wall and I interpret that
to mean "conversation", i.e. nothing in writing]
**Here is one sentence from the NASA statement of voice to skull
success, posted at:
"...by proper choice of pulse characteristics, INTELLIGIBLE SPEECH
MAY BE CREATED"
** Here are two sentences from two abstracts describing an "SBIR"
(small business research project) awarded to Brian Kohn at Science
and Engineering Associates, which has more than one branch:
"The feasibility of the concept HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED..."
"The study found that voice communications, via the
microwave auditory effect, ARE HIGHLY FEASIBLE."
So what we need folks, is irrefutable documentation of the
Joseph Sharp success, AND/OR, the background of the SBIR
projects awarded to Science and Engineering Associates,
PROVIDED THE SEA DOCUMENTATION PROVES IRREFUTABLY THAT
MICROWAVE TRANSMISSION OF WORDS IS AN ACCOMPLISHED FACT.
