Subject: ^^Unexplained^^ SETI Finds Something!
Received via "alt.alien.visitors" May 16 at 06.37 local Danish time
(GMT + 1 hour).
My apologies for the massive crosspost but due to the nature of this
story I think it is warranted. An astronomer friend of mine forwarded
me this off of a private mailinglist between SETI reseachers.
He said distribute this far and wide before the governement has a
chance to squash it.
Note: the abbriveation "RA" means Radio Astronomy(er) or Right
Accension depending on the contact
I *highly* suggest you forward this far and wide before the
government or any kind of cover-up apparatus rolls into place. This
should be the story of the century. I can hardly believe it myself but
it looks like contact has been made:
PS: This should be a very interesting year!!

Subject: SETI pulses.
At the University of Indianapolis we have noticed short pulses of less
than a minute duration. The produce very sharp spikes in the output of
the RA receiver. They sometimes produce a sharp downward deflection of
the RA receiver output, which we suspect is due to strong interference
near the passband that desenses the receiver. We suspect that the
pulses are interference.
In order to negate the possiblity that the pulses are not interference
but are from phenomina from someplace other than earth, we would like
to run an experiment over the next two weeks.
We now ( May 14 ) have our 5 meter dish on the declination of Cygnus A.
When an ordered observation is not taking place the default files of a
sample every 10 seconds are created. Our daily files are generally an
observation file now starting at 4:30 am to catch Cygnus A, Cygnus X
and Cygnus B and a default file or files the rest of the time. There
are occasionally other files created, such as a 10 samples per second
observation of a few minutes that will be run tomorrow to see if we can
find the source of the noise on the temperature sensor output. However,
unless there is a software crash, there should be constant observation
and data around the clock. Please note we use EST on the files. Of
course, we cannot see anything during rain except the blackbody
radiation from the water droplets.
If anyone has a RA system running and can point to the declination of
Cygnus A, +40.73 Degrees, it might be possible to compare results.
However, we are pointed at the south meridian and, if the other RA
system is not at the longitude of Indianpolis, it would have to be
pointed a little off the meridian so it would be observing the same RA
as we are.
If anyone is interested please let us know. Since our data goes on the
web automatically, the other RA operator can easily check our results
