SETI Astronomers Launch New Campaign to Eavesdrop on E.T.


The coordinated signal-searching campaign began this month to mark the 50th anniversary of Project Ozma, a 1960 experiment that was christened the world's first real attempt in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence – or SETI.

I was wondering if our old short wave transmissions would have reached many star systems. In a hundred years the carrier wave might exist at 100+ years. If not Im sure they can hear Jaurez Mexico on radio. I could recieve that AM station in Michagan plain as day.

Which is why they can't. The ionosphere bounced that frequency back to the ground so you could hear it. None escaped into space.

It speaks of "telescopes", but which kind? Optical, radio, IR, X, gamma? This is rather vague.

A blog in www.setiquest.org says the data will be optical, microwave, and LOFAR (8 MHz) coming from 5 stars.Also Arecibo is taking place, besides ATA.
