From the book How to Contact Space People by Ted Owens
ANOTHER GREAT BLACKOUT
Now you are going to be a reading witness to one of the darndest modern-day miracles you could ever imagine!
Here is what happened. I finished this book last Sunday, completely. Now, you have read inside about my telegram of warning to the CIA, and how a few days later, the Great Blackout of New York took place, two hours ago. Very well. The day after I finished this book (last Monday), the Great Daytime Blackout struck Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware! Was any of it my doing? I'll say it was - and I'll let you be the judge, as you follow the action:
June 21, 1966
Mr. Jack McKinney
I have been fighting off writing this to you for several weeks, but when the SI's put on the pressure...you write. What they want me to do is to give a practical demonstration at Radio Station WCAU of how 'PK' (Si power) works at Cape Kennedy and other places. This will involve making a 'PK' map, my usual procedure (the SI's use this as a training procedure with me, so that I can understand what they are doing). I will send you a copy, and keep a copy of this map. Then slowly the power will build up at Radio Station WCAU as the 'PK' grows there. And in the days, weeks, and months ahead, this is what to expect:
High degree of human error.
Electrical disturbances and breakdowns.
Poltergeist phenomena of all kinds.
Employees out with the "flu".
Markedly unreasonable human behavior.
Weird and unusual accidents of minor nature.
The Si's are keeping in mind that WCAU, and Jack McKinney, are their friends, so don't worry about this being devastating, as their work is at other places. They just want to show WCAU what it is really like to be within range of the Si's for a period of time, with the Si's zeroing in, that is. Let me spell it out: they are punishing the Air Force currently, with blood in their eye. This is not the same. They are giving WCAU a practical demonstration in Si Pk, with friendship in their eye.

Now, you will notice the reference to a lightning hit in the letter. Following is a letter I received in response to an inquiry I made:
August 23, 1966
Dear Mr. Owens:
Thank you for your letter dated August 17, 1966. Yes, we were hit by lightning about 2:50 A.M. and we were off the air until temporary repairs could be made, returning to the air at 8:06:30 A.M. ..
So the Si's struck a local radio station with lightning not long after I sent them the PK map. Why not WCAU? I don't know.
Of course, when the Great Daytime Blackout struck, it clobbered WCAU Radio and TV.
Next, on Feb. 19, 1967, I wrote Tim Beckley, Editor of Searchlight, 3 Courtland Street, New Brunswick, New Jersey:
...You requested I ask the Si's to furnish good weather for your UFO meeting in New York. This I cannot do, for the Si's have the U.S. set up for rain and precipitation, to eliminate the drought, and this we would not want to tamper with. But, this we can do, I will contact the Si's immediately, and ask them to appear strongly in the New York area through the UFO meeting, to draw attention to New York area, and to them. I'll stress as best I can to them that they do something unusually spectacular at the time of the UFO meeting - like another total New York blackout, or something of that scope. I trust this will meet with your group's approval. One important thing, and please let me know. If I bring the above about, which will certainly help your UFO meeting, will you give me a notarized confirmation of it?
(Note: This was done, and I will exhibit it later - Owens)
Meanwhile I wrote another letter to Roland Swank,
Organization of Scientific Research, Box 562, Paoli, Pa.,
Feb. 23, 1967:
Just to jog things up a little, am going to contact the Si's and ask them to bring down, all over the U.S., a blanket of electrical interference, to interfere with telephone wires and connections, radios, TV's, etc., on a mass scale which will be quite noticeable, in an unprecedented way, and which should make the newspapers. Electrical interference and havoc now, all over the U.S. Ready?
P K Man (Owens)
Well, it came to pass, culminating in the Great Daytime Blackout of four East Coast States. But let's look at some of the lesser ones.
Feb. 25, 1967 (two days after the above letter was written), a Philadelphia paper:
NINE SIRENS GO BERSERK
Nine air raid sirens, perched atop utility poles in the Tioga- Nicetown section, went berserk Friday night, wailing for 25 minutes... the wailings stirred up neighborhoods and flooded police telephone lines. A woman at the Electrical Bureau, when asked about the cause, replied "We are not permitted to give out any information."
GULF COAST HIT BY POWER FAILURE, Beaumont, Tex., May 11 UP:
A power failure knocked out electricity along the upper Texas Gulf Coast on Friday. At least a quarter of a million persons in the oil-rich cities of Beaumont, Port Arthur, Nederland, Orange and Port Neches were affected. Almost all radio and television stations were knocked off the air, and in some cases telephone communications were interrupted.
Check my letter once again, and you will see that this is exactly what I had asked the Si's to bring about.
POWER IS RESTORED IN CINCINNATI AFTER CITY'S ALL-NIGHT BLACKOUT, Cincinnati, May 27, N.Y. Times:..
The blackout, which occurred at about 11:45 PM last night, plunged most of Cincinnati and parts of neighboring Kentucky across the river into blackness.. Henry Sandman, Cincinnati Safety Director, said both the city and the power company were investigating the power failure which he termed highly unusual if it were an accident.
(Note: This blackout was laid to a broken cable over a river, but the reader must bear in mind that the Si's will employ endless means to bring about an effect. They are not limited in any way to their ways of attack, even breaking cables - Owens).
MISHAP AROUSES CAPITAL SUBURBS, Washington, June 5, UP:
Hundreds of residents in two suburbs of the Nation's capital awoke early Monday to the wailing of air raid sirens. The sirens began sounding in parts of Alexandria and Arlington, Va., at 4:30 AM... A Civil Defense spokesman said the sirens were accidentally triggered by a "malfunction of telephone equipment!"
(Note: It was later in this same day that the Great Daytime Blackout occurred - Owens)
My next letter to Roland Swank, C.S.C.A.R., as follows, April, 8, 1967:
An idea has come to me. Am asking the Si's to prove their existence further, and their link with me further, by doing the following: To interfere with TV reception on this entire area, Phila. and nearby New Jersey. Am asking them to make it so outstanding that it will be noted and reported to the authorities by many many people, and thus confirm this letter.
This will also prove their control over television principles, thence over human minds.
Well, I had something a bit different in mind with that letter, but evidently the Si's chose an entire blackout, which certainly fulfilled the letter, also, as the other, previous letters were brought to pass.
Meanwhile I had made a PK map of the Philadelphia - New Jersey - New York area, with appropriate symbols on it, and showed it to the Si's. Next on May 9, 1967, I got a card from Jim Moseley, Chairman of the Flying Saucer Convention in New York, and Editor of Saucer News, as follows:
Dear Mr. Owens:
I have just finished fixing up your ad for our forthcoming Summer issue of Saucer News. We are also including your letter to the Editor, about possible sensational activity by the space people, just before the Convention.
(Note that "just before" - Owens)
Yes, that would be wonderful. If you can arrange it! Let's see if you can.
I immediately answered Jim's letter as follows, on May 10, 1967:
Thanks for the card. Am contacting the Si's immediately to do something sensational in their area of activity
(Note: by that I meant was contacting them over and over again, just to make sure - Owens)
to point up the (Flying Saucer) convention and draw interest to it.
(Note: This was brought to pass, because a local TV Station, WKBS, had received copies of these predictions, as had WCAU Radio, and they both asked me to appear after the Daytime Blackout on their shows, at which time I plugged the Convention - Owens)
I will explain to them that this Convention is in their interest, and the people attending it who are sympathetic to them. Am going to ask them to bring about another Great Power Blackout, or something on that scale. And if they will not do that, then to appear in great numbers in and about New York from now until Convention time, as a signal that they are here, are real, and wish the humans in the U.S. to focus their attention on the Convention. Fair enough? My batting average thus far, which Mack McKinney states is "amazing", is 88%. So am not worried the Si's might not respond.
P K Man (Ted Owens)
Jim Moseley answered on May 17, 1967, as follows:
Dear Ted Owens:
Thanks for your letters. It's very interesting how you have apparently made many of your predictions come true. I would be most sincerely impressed if you can, indeed, make something spectacular happen just before the Convention.
(Note: There it is again, "just before the Convention". The Si's struck with their massive blackout just as requested by Jim, just before the Convention - Owens)
Let's not have a power failure in NYC too close to the Convention date, however, as people might get scared or something.
(Note: 17 days before, was just about right, and right to Jim's order - Owens)
(Signed) Jim Moseley
Just to make sure there would be no misunderstanding, I wrote Jim back on May 19, 1967, as follows:
Am asking the Si's to deal NY another power blackout, or show their craft there in a striking way, or do something big and mysterious, before June 22, in NY, to help boost interest in the Convention. Am sure you will get powerful results. Something exciting and unusual. Should affect power and electricity, when it happens.
P K Man (Ted Owens)
Two days after this letter, the following appeared in the New York Times:
ST. ALBANS BLACKED OUT, St. Albans section of Queens was blacked out for nearly an hour and a half last night...
On May 22, 1967, I wrote Jim back, pointed out this small blackout to him, and telling him, "This seems to be a beginning."
He sent me a card back to answer:
Thanks for the letter.
On June 5th the massive power failure struck! I immediately sent a telegram to Moseley (after the power came back on) as follows:
You said "I'll look forward to the
Now, I would like to show you, the reader, some quotes from the newspapers, regarding the massive Blackout.
The Philadelphia Inquirer called it a "mysterious power failure". It said,
The big question - why did it happen - could not be answered immediately. Pennsylvania - New Jersey - Maryland Interconnection, PJM, is equipped with switches that are supposed to disconnect generators of transmission lines from the system if trouble develops. In this instance, however, the entire system shut down. Three widely separated generating stations stopped functioning.
Roy G. Rinclife, chairman of Philadelphia Electric, said (before the blackout),
It is highly improbable that a total blackout could strike our service area.
The Editor of the Inquirer said
When electric power suddenly was shut off in the memorable blackout on Nov. 9 1965, extensive investigations were launched and preventive measures were taken, supposedly, to avert a repetition of a power failure over such a wide area.
Congressman Fred Rooney said
It is particularly important to undertake a special study because the power failure centered on the Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland Interconnection is regarded as a "model" for electric power nets.
So you see, dear reader, the Si's knocked out what was regarded as the "model", the best of all U.S. power nets!
Next came Jim Moseley's confirmation, bless his heart. I say that because most of my contacts have for years denied me confirmations, because of fear of possible academic reaction, or Government pressure, or social pressure...who knows? But Jim had guts.
I am sorry you had to spend money on telegrams, as I would have written you anyhow, commenting on the success of your prediction regarding the Convention. Your letter to Tim Beckley, published in our current Summer issue of Saucer News, reads as follows:
"I will be contacting the Saucer Intelligence immediately, and ask them to appear strongly in the New York area throughout the UFO Convention, to draw attention to New York and to themselves. I'll stress as best I can to them that they should do something unusually spectacular at that time, like another New York blackout, or something of that scope. I trust that this will meet with your group's approval".
I do not have the exact date of the above letter, but it was written before May 10th, as our issue went to press at that time. The Convention in question is scheduled for June 23-25. The recent four-state blackout, apparently centering on Philadelphia, took place on June 5th, and extended as far north as Jersey City, directly across the Hudson River from New York. Although there is certainly no proof, one way or the other,
(Note: What better proof could there be, than my many letters written just previously, stating I would specifically work to make this happen with Si help? - Owens),
that the blackout was caused by the prediction, our group is nevertheless very impressed with the closeness, in time and location, regarding the outcome of this prediction.
(Signed) Jim Moseley
Just one more point to explain, dear reader. Several days after the blackout the Si's contacted me, and explained why they did not black out New York itself. To do that they would have had to go over New York, and at the time, although they felt it was the right time, they suspected that, because of my copies of letters to Government agencies, the Government might have set a trap over New York. So they did the next best thing and blacked out the entire adjoining four-state area to make their point.
