As to what mark said about it being undercover this is ludicrous! SETI is NOT government controlled and if the signal appeared whoever was on duty at the time would spread it like wildfire, The government may try to cover it up but it would already in be in the public domain and hard to deny

wrt SETI signals, it's gov't controlled, why selectively trust it?

I'm an artist, not an astronomer. And I'm not very technologically versed in electronics or radio so I am pleased to receive an answer "written in English". I would never take an answer to any question as being "condescending". Like the old adage goes; "the worst question is the one never asked. Ask a question and you are only perceived a fool once. Never ask a question and you are a fool forever".
Thanks for your reply and succinct answer
