It seems that on the anniversary of the original wow signal some researchers were transmitting messages asking for contact. Did they get it?
Josh says: “An independent group of researchers in Puerto Rico believe they possibly made contact with ‘beings from elsewhere’ last
Friday, August 15, 2014, 37th anniversary of the mysterious ‘WOW! Signal’ captured by SETI.” The “Arecibo Project,” led by Joshua P.
Warren, Director of the Bermuda Triangle Research Base, spent the day transmitting radio messages into outer space from Arecibo, Lajas, and other
parts of the island, asking ET to appear around certain GPS coordinates as a live webcam streamed footage of the general location. A variety of
anomalies were captured on camera, including a “saucer-shaped object” that appeared and which then shot straight up into the sky, accompanied by a
strange, high-pitched tone. Warren’s team compared that tone to the famed WOW! Signal, and say it is so similar they think the UFO possibly sent
this signal to them as a sign of successful communication. “We believe the UFO may have sent us the same type of signal that came from space, and
was recorded by SETI, 37 years ago,” says Josh. He adds: “This was a complete surprise. Though it was picked up via a webcam microphone, and not a
broad dish like SETI had, our analysis thus far has shown it is essentially a demodulated signal from the WOW! transmission turned into
We will be discussing this tonight On Into the Fringe on ATS Live Radio. Tune in and Call in to discuss this interesting story with us.
1. The Wow! signal was a signal received by SETI at Ohio State university.
2. It was not unique, there have been other such signals since then.
See two of my previous threads -ATS: SETI Candidate Signals List
and even more
interesting than the original Wow! signal in my opinion:The New "Wow!" Signal - SETI's
Recent Close Encounter With An Unidentified Emission
3. These people are not actually using Arecibo Observatory's planetary radar to broadcast their message. Nor was the original Wow signal picked up
What they seem to be doing is asking for ham radio operators to broadcast their messages into space. Few ham radio operators would have any
transmitter powerful enough to reach the Moon much less interstellar space.
4. It seems like Joshua P. Warren is doing the whole SETI experiment a disservice by associating it once again with UFOs. Why, I don't know. It
doesn't benefit either really. There are constructive things which could bridge the two worlds (Dr. Peter Sturrock advocated a dialog between the UFO
and SETI crowds) but Warren seems to be going for sensationalism over substance by misinterpreting a photo of a bug or bird as response to some
amateur radio guys transmitting a "message" to would-be aliens....
If you'd like I'd be happy to come on your show to discuss this and clear up any confusion.
