I read:

Is it true we are going to start getting data from the UK now on ? If so when ?

Provided they know the existence of SETI@home. They only seem to know the SETI Institute as a SETI research effort.

The media regularly mix up the Seti Institute with Seti@home, despite being advised many times of the difference between them. It's because they both have Seti in the name, both are based in California, and have joint aims. The main difference is of course that we use distributed computing via the public to analyse the data we get. The Institute was started in 1984, Seti@home came in 1999.

both are based in California,


What is most disturbing is that they are both based at Berkeley.

AFAIK the SETI Institute is not based in Berkeley. The ATA is now run by the Stanford Research Institute. The Radio Astronomy Dept. of Berkeley used to have a role in the ATA but no longer so. This is what I know but I live far from Berkeley.

Seti Institute is based in Mountain View, California a few miles from the University of California at Berkeley.
