I've just joined this and wondered whether I was meant to seeing some sort of visual record of the frequencies on a graph? I'm sure that's what the website said, but then again, I did find some of that a little tricky to understand!
"If you see some evidence of a signal on your screen it is very important that you NOT contact the media until the signal is verified and checked.
False alarms severely damage the credibility of SETI@home and all serious SETI programs. Be patient.
If there is a real signal, we promise to inform you and keep you "in the loop" concerning the progress of the search."
