Anybody else using this program?

Anybody else had any hits?

I downloaded a program which maps were the signal has come from ill try and take a screen shot and post it..

can some one tell me how to do this...?

Hiyah Ian....

I used and downloaded that Seti software many years ago...but never got a hit and eventually that computer crashed and I got another one and never thought to do it again...

How cool for you, you will have to keep us posted about the outcome...I can't help you on your questions I think I was using it back in 2001, and don't really remember much about it, but I am sure there are a few around who could answer them.

Can't wait to see what develops

We have LOTS of members who use this program... Be patient, I am sure you'll get the help you need.

Just remember to breathe. In...out...in...out. Just in case. LOL.

Good luck, man. Exciting, eh? Just remember, when you go to accept your Nobel, we knew you when...

Seriously, good luck.

Where do you get this program? Is it in stores or do you get it through astronomy supply outlets? sounds like it might be fun...

I gave some cpu cycles to SETI several years ago.

"Spike count: 1
Pulse count: 1
Triplet count: 0
Gaussian count: 0"

I always thought the Triplet count was interesting. I wonder which stat is more important?

if this doesnt show up clear ill e-mail to some one who can help....

also on the map i get further information hovering over the signal....

Gaussion score -0.553224
Pulse Score 0.966644
Spike Score -0.237967
Triplet Score 14.482055

The picture is here:




However, you'll probably need to click it to see the whole thing, as it's too wide for this page.

Type Seti @ home in google and download from there...

I'm not getting my hope up too much....

I just find this package enthralling and i wanted to share with like minded users....

I guess that if it was genuine they wouldn't tell us anyway...

Thankyou for posting the image....

Sorry for the short post but i cant seem to find an indicator on the map to where the signal was from .. could you put a little star or arrow or something to show it better on the map?
Thanks
Joe

Excellent Ian and thankyou for coming straight to ATS with this. Im sure you will get some very educated help from the guys on here. As for me i use SETI@home. Dont really understand the jargon but i let it use my comp anyway.

I got curious and gathered some information for those of us who aren't using SETI or for those who don't know what it is:

SETI@home is a distributed computing project using Internet-connected computers, hosted by the Space Sciences Laboratory, at the University of California, Berkeley, in the United States. SETI is an acronym for the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence.


The software searches for four types of signals that distinguish them from noise: signals:

* Spikes in power spectra
* Gaussian rises and falls in transmission power, possibly representing the telescope beam's main lobe passing over a radio source
* Triplets — three power spikes in a row
* Pulsing signals that possibly represent a narrowband digital-style transmission



Astronomer Seth Shostak (2004), has stated that he expects to get a conclusive signal and proof of alien contact between 2020 and 2025, based on the Drake equation.


Read all about the program and where these quotes came from here:

en.wikipedia.org...@home

Would be awesome Ian if instead of 2020-2025, became 2008!

Here's some other interesting information:


The Ohio State University SETI program is the longest continuously running electromagnetic Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence to date. In 1977 that sky survey detected a signal which seemed to fit all the characteristics anticipated for communications of intelligent extra-terrestrial origin. The so-called Wow! signal is interesting in its own right, and we analyze it here, applying time-honored reverse engineering principles in trying to ascertain its nature....


Very technical read but extremely interesting, read the rest here:

That is excellent i hope it fathoms out, i used it a long time ago and got nothing, if i remember right isnt there a reward for a confirmed signal?

This website is so cool, everything happens here, every day there is something new for me to absorb, I wish you the greatest of luck with this and hope it all works for you.

Congrats!!!

I ran the SETI program on my home network several years ago and have several 10000's of units. Was in top 200 of personal users at one point. Never got a hit.

Completely got out of it after it went over to bionic structure. Just don't like that program structure.

I was giving cpu time to seti in 2002. It started out as a screen-saver. CPU idle time was given to seti.

After years of not caring, you have motivated me. The box in the basement wasn't doing anything in its free time. It is now!

I look forward to input from someone knowledgeable of the significance of this signal.

Ok i have marked were the signal has come from can somebody actually figure this map out and let me / Us know were this signal is actually from?

I am not getting over excited however it would be nice to share information with other users of the seti program....

i can send the mapping software to those who are intrested as well.

Contact the film made me sit up and take notice!....And im so glad i watched that film....

If there is nobody out there its a whole lot of wasted space!

oh my goodnesss.....

Just checked out were the signal may have come from on google earth....



Tau Boo - Jupiter Sized Exoplanet

Posted by: Stu7
Click here for the post

Tau Boo Remarks : 1. 10 sep. 03: New upper limit of 0.39 for the reflection albedo (Leigh et al 2003) 2. 20 apr. 03: Planet in wide (a ~ 240 AU) binary system (Eggenberger et al 2003) 3. 22 spt. 2000: the planet not so bright as previously announced (Cameron et al). 4. Exhibits coherent variations in residual velocities consistent with additional companion. 24 Jul. 00: the source of RV variation remains speculative, depending on completion of one full orbit (Fischer et al 2000). 5. `Probable detection' of the reflected star-light by the planet (Cameron et. al, 1999). The albedo is claimed to be detected only from 456 to 524 nm. 6. The star has a companion ( GJ 527B) about 240 AU away.

now the signal from what i have been able to decipher using google earth is from near this region....
