    Are they absolutely sure it was not my feeble attempts at CW?

    It is quite interesting. Suppose they find a true "signal"? I can understand how they might authenticate it as a true broadcast signal, buy how would you ever learn the meaning.
    Could be quite frustrating, but fun.

    Dr. Carl Sagan gave it some thought a while back.... :rolleyes:

    Actually I think it's just harmonics from AM broadcast stations reported here lately.

    What an impact that movie has had! NOW $1.37 on AMAZON, and with "SPHERE" to boot!

    Th resolution is 21 KHz, which means the system can only detect and cannot differentiate between natural phenomena and intelligent transmission, which presumably are very high Q, perhaps 1 Hz .

    It could be a solar like radio emission (for this star), but would have to be dramatically scaled up to explain the 4000+ MHZ frequencies. There is no evidence for information.

    From the article:

    "In case you are wondering, the recurrent aliens hypothesis is at the bottom of many other better explanations."

    WONDER IF THOSE SIGNALS ARE FROM ME CALLING CQ FROM MY MOBILE 33 YEARS AGO?

    That's not Carl Sagan. That's a lesbian thespian...
