...... Damn, the highest frequency I can get is 1.3 GHz. I wonder if I can convince my wife I need another radio?

Could this be an attempt at contact ?
Begining this evening a strong radio signal at 1420 MHZ has been detected by a variety of radio operators. This signal appears to be eminating from a location off of the planet. The signal is constant and quite strong. (9+)
In the "Protected Band" at 1420 MHz
Through international agreements, several special frequency bands have been reserved for radio astronomy. Perhaps the most important of these bands includes the emission from hydrogen atoms at 1420 MHz. The "protected" band extends from 1400 MHz to 1427 MHz in order to allow observations of hydrogen gas moving at a range of velocities.
