Can an audible scanning feature be added into the SETI@home program? Its a great screensaver (the classic graphical scanning feature which i cant get to use as a screensaver because of the BOINC crap ((liked classic version better)) I know its possible to audibly hear the "noise" from space but if it was downloadable and useable as an .mp3 or .wav, can the seti@home program be edited to scan through it as well as being able to hear it through the pc's speakers?

As it has been pointed out, in several post before, what we are analyzing is a 12 second slice of high frequency noise which is then manipulated to compensate for the rotation of the earth, and movement of the telescope. It sounds like the static of a radio between channels.

The few people that this noise might intrigue rather irritate after a few minutes is not worth the scientist time to program into the Seti software.

A third party add-on is about the only thing you can ever expect to see.

Edit: I see Wendy has already posted a link to the latest thread that discussed this subject.

S@H is, I believe, analysing a 115 second slice. But it is high frequency noise.
