Ok, let me make sure I'm getting this right.
Radio telescopes, that's RADIO TELESCOPES, all over the world are reporting a signal that they're receiving, from ground radio telescopes, that is in the far ultraviolet.
There's a problem here. You don't receive signals in optical bands on farking radio telescopes. Radio telescopes couldn't pick up a signal in the far ultraviolet if the operator was set on fire with Sterno as an incentive. Because they're radio telescopes. Radio telescopes top out at about 300GHz. Far ultraviolet is past the capability of most OPTICAL telescopes, much less a radio telescope.
The other issue would be, you can't observe far ultraviolet with a ground based optical telescope, even the ones designed for short wavelength work, because the atmosphere absorbs far UV. It doesn't reach the ground.

I am still believing it is as so.
I admire your steadfastness. However, in reading your post it would appear that a portion of your belief is wavering. I can understand, being that you've invested so much of your time and personal work into this, why you're so adamant about maintaining the validity of the whole ordeal.
Based on your post I am also beginning to wonder if Judy would be the type to snatch the credit for this find out from under you. You stated that you gave her a certain set of stars to target and weeks later you see the blog entry claiming ET contact.
Within a very short time of this event every tie that you were associated to her with was abruptly severed. Eliminating any evidence on her end that she was ever associated with you. Thus allowing her to eventually stake full claim to the discovery even though it was based on the information you provided.
How well did you truly know her? Also, deep down, I know you want to believe otherwise, but what does your gut tell you? Because one's instincts are usually right.
