Was NOAA form 17-4 filled out for city weather modification exercise?

This NOAA form is to be filled out by any party involved in weather modification. Might it apply to government actors, with one department notifying another of its activities?

In August I made contact with NOAA, the national oceanic and atmospheric administration, to determine if heavy sky striping activities over Chattanooga in July were in accordance with federal statute — or even subject to that agency’s regulation.

Specifically, I sought to learn whether the parties involved in sky plume program had filed NOAA form 17-4, a request for license to modify the weather pursuant to the weather modification reporting act of 1974. My correspondence with John Leslie and a colleague says in part:

Thank you for chatting with me about weather modification paperwork. I am looking to obtain copies for July of completed NOAA form 17.4 touching on three neighboring Tennessee counties: Hamilton, Marion and Sequatchie. Weather modification, cloud-seeding, overcast-making flights occurred over Chattanooga (in Hamilton County) July 1-5, 9, 10, 13, 15, 17, 20-22, 25, 26, 30 and 31.

July 30 was a remarkably heavy day of jet overflights laying plumes of cloud (see photo). Sky striping may help bring global cooling, but I fear it is being done without regard to the health of people on the ground and without proper authorization.

The completed forms for all or any of these days will go a long way to explain what is happening in the fight against global warming in my area of the U.S.

A dramatic sky striping demonstration Sunday, Oct. 19, drew so much attention across Chattanooga that I decided to follow up this morning on my inquiry with NOAA, which has been ignored. Thus far, Hamilton County has received special attention in the war on global warming on the following dates: Oct 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 17-20. That’s 13 days of particulate emissions in the high atmosphere over the city, based on the scientific enterprise of visual observation.

I am developing this story bit by bit, and I am not sure how useful such inquiries as today’s might be.
