Only if you can explain further what it is that you want explained.

Cheers.

Quite simply - 'x' marks the location of a signal with the characteristics given in the yellow box. Until that data has been correlated with other data from the same area then it doesn't have any significance other than "worthy of a second look".

Sorry but if the "x" was visible to me I wouldn't have asked, I would've looked further.

The only way I can see anything here other than, "I'm new to this could someone explain what this means?", is to click on the "Quote" button.

Maybe a security thing on my side?

Cheers.

Um - screensaver output?

Looks to me like a graphical representation of where the WU was taken (sky point) and some of the data out of it.

There might be something useful in the 'about' section of the website.

Basically the data gets analysed for different types of signals - pulses, gaussians and triplets. Each signal found gets a score attached.

Ntpcr is supposed to sift through all the found signals coming in to find those that are really interesting.
