Globalstar is a low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellation for satellite phone and low-speed data communications, somewhat similar to the Iridium satellite constellation and Orbcomm satellite systems.
The devices have been described as Gateways, which can be found on this map:
Gateways are an integral part of the Globalstar ground segment. In addition to the gateways the ground segment includes the Ground Operations Control Center (GOCC), Satellite Operations Control Center (SOCC), and Globalstar Data Network (GDN).
Each gateway, which is owned and managed by the service provider for the country in which the gateway is located, receives transmissions from orbiting satellites, processes calls, and switches them to the appropriate ground network.
A gateway may service more than one country. Gateways consist of three or four dish antennas, a switching station and remote operating controls. Because all of the switches and complex hardware are located on the ground, it is easier for Globalstar to maintain and upgrade its system than it is for systems that handle switching in orbit.
In another Globalstar document, the Director General is reported as stating:
We have participated in the RABC’s preparation of its response to the Gazette Notice, and agree in general with most of its comments. We do, however, wish to retain use of the band 6875 - 7055 MHz at the two current sites Smiths Falls and High River for the space-to-Earth feeder-link portion of our network.
These Globalstar devices that were discovered appeared to be in the middle of nowhere, however, there is also a Doppler transmitter / receiver station (ATC radar) in north-east Calgary, which interestingly aligns along the same longitudinal direction (113°58'21.15" W). Please see in the map below:

Rain fade refers primarily to the absorption of a microwave radio frequency (RF) signal by atmospheric rain, snow or ice, and losses which are especially prevalent at frequencies above 11 GHz. It also refers to the degradation of a signal caused by the electromagnetic interference of the leading edge of a storm front. Rain fade can be caused by precipitation at the uplink or downlink location. However, it does not need to be raining at a location for it to be affected by rain fade, as the signal may pass through precipitation many miles away, especially if the satellite dish has a low look angle. From 5 to 20 percent of rain fade or satellite signal attenuation may also be caused by rain, snow or ice on the uplink or downlink antenna reflector, radome or feed horn. Rain fade is not limited to satellite uplinks or downlinks, it also can affect terrestrial point to point microwave links (those on the earths surface).
In these photos taken from Intellicast radar, we can see a region of rain / moisture hovering over a large area where the Globalstar devices are located
The frequency used from HAARP matches the capability of NEXRAD (Doppler) radar, as in the creation of plasma in the atmosphere using 0 - 4 MHz. NEXRAD pulses between 0 - 12.4 MHz, placing the HAARP frequency and radar frequency on overlapping spectrum. It has been found that radar (EM waves) is used to generate plasma from a place called SPEAR (in Norway) , and they are using radar as a 'heater' in the same spectrum that NEXRAD radar normally operates on when not in pulse mode (2.7GHz - 3.0GHz). This proves that NEXRAD radar (Doppler stations) is capable of, and is currently being used to induce effects in the atmosphere -- not just observe it. Radar was also used to generate artificial plasma at the MIT research labs, using C-band and S-band, essentially the same bands that NEXRAD radar use. In other words, NEXRAD radar or Doppler stations have the functionality to act as small versions of HAARP or EISCAT, and to function as 'heaters' and plasma / lightning generators / weather modification devices.
This video below also speaks more about the NEXRAD stations, at about 8:40 minutes into the video:
If southern Alberta wants its natural weather back, these NEXRAD Doppler stations and other transmitter / receiver stations that emit large amounts of energy at varying frequencies into the atmosphere need to be removed.
