Good idea Richard.

It think it is good though that these anomalies have been spotted and an attempt is being made to address them.

We have a term for all this needs to get done but hasn’t happened yet. But it is going to get done sometime in the something future. At my job we call it “Job Security”. LOL.

If 12 year old never processed data contains a signal ...
Someone is going to be really pissed.

Only if there was an expiration date for a reply.

I for one think it would be nice to know in advance about any Vogon notice of a scheduled demolition of planet Earth by one of their constructor fleets making way for a hyperspace bypass, although I doubt Vogons care much about strongly held objections, major leaflet campaigns or replies.

I'll run my 'data distribution' tool at the end of the month and see if I find anything new.
Well, this is what it found:


So, the 2006 tapes are genuinely new to me, and the earliest 'Multibeam' (ALFA antenna) tapes I've seen. But 2011 and 2016 didn't show up anything as 'new', or even repocessed.

We're probably better off not knowing. We would never get a representative to Alpha Centauri in time to lodge a formal complaint.

Those really are old tapes - looking at the Data Distribution History, they must have been the very first recordings from the ALFA multi-beam antenna. Possibly even test recordings?


Excuse me but in the distribution history there is no data after 2007 or am I reading in a wrong way?

That page hasn't been updated in a very long time, but this thread will fill in the holes for you. ;-)

Cheers.
