Looks like the "WOW" signal is nothing more than US radio junk. Thats not good news for SETTI
I wonder how many times people like Gortex have to repeat "THIS IS NOT THE WOW SIGNAL!" before someone actually listens?
The WOW! signal was an alpha-numerical representation of the signal strength. There was no other data encoded in it.
Imagine, the signal would have been recorded and there had been data encoded within the signal. I wonder if this world would be a different place today. Air traffic controllers record 24 hours a day all transmissions made on their assigned frequencies. Too bad no one thought back then to record the hydrogen line frequency with a simple reel to reel recorder. The technology was there in 1977 and could not have been that expensive.
