The best thing would be for me to try it out myself with the original signal, right?
What is the recording that they keep playing to us then?
At the MADAR Station in Mt. Vernon (15 mi. w. of Evansville), Indiana The TERS audio E15M you are about to see/hear has law enforcement and selected aircraft communications being recorded in the room with the MADAR equipment. The sensor movements, in buzzing pulses, begin and is then covered-up by the radio transmissions at times. The WOW signal at Delaware, Ohio was received by SETI at 11:16 pm EDST. At the same time, over 300 miles away at Mt. Vernon, this was occurring:

I couldn't make anything certain out of it.
Anyone want to tell me what they think they heard. I am tired of listening to the sound clip now.
And what do those numbers mean?
The series “6EQUJ5″ described the strength of the received signal over a short time-span. Each number from 1 to 9 represented the signal level above the background noise. The letters represent a scale extension, with each one from A to Z representing increasingly stronger signal levels. 6EQUJ5 represented a signal that grew in strength to level “U”, and then gradually subsided. In numeric terms, the signal increased from zero to level 30 “sigmas” above the background noise, and then decreased again to zero.
Q:I would like to obtain an audio tape of the "Wow!" signal. Can you provide that to me?
A:At the time Big Ear recorded the radio signal that later became known as the "Wow!" signal (based on the notation that Dr. Jerry Ehman wrote in the margin of the computer printout), there was no audio recording equipment attached to the output of that radio telescope. Hence, it is impossible to provide an audio tape of that signal.
