A number of Amateur SETI Projects have sprung up around the world using mostly private funding and sometimes very crude equipment. The rational behind these projects is the idea that the more people looking, the higher the chance of detecting a signal.

Some of these projects are simply backyard astronomers with an interest in the subject. Many using nothing more than standard satellite dish antenna of 8 - 14 feet in diameter and home computers to analyze signals. Others are more coordinated efforts by groups of people that pool their efforts and resources. Some universities and colleges support SETI programs as part of their curriculum to advance this field of study. Students of these courses have gone on to create innovative means to try and detect alien signals

Project BAMBI

Project BAMBI (Bob And Mike's Big Investment), is a 4GHz SETI-Capable Radio Telescope that uses two locations separated by about 1,000 miles, one in California and one in Colorado. The founders of this project are Bob Lash and Mike Fremont that now have a system up and running 24 hours a day with plans to expand the capabilities and size of the network.

SETI Research & Community Development Institute

This Australian group is a member of the SETI League that helps coordinate private organizations and provides technical data to those interested in starting or continuing projects in the field of SETI. They also have plans to construct their own optical telescope for research and at this time are raising funds for the purchase of land and construction.

SARA - Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers

This organization is dedicated to the teaching, learning and trading technical information with those amateurs that have an interest in radio astronomy. This also includes those looking for information to start their own SETI projects.
