Why the Navy and not the Air Force or NASA? It doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

I am not a ham radio person, but I do work on two-way radios and am well versed in spectrum analysis. The frequency spectrum is a huge place and finding one small signal spike in all that territory would be a huge undertaking. It would be even worse if you were in an RF congested area like a city. You add in noise from electrical storms or AC power lines and you are looking for a needle in a haystack. There is also the question of what kind of signal we are to recieve. Will it be AM(amplitude modulation), FM(frequency modulation) or even PM(phase modulation)? Would we recieve only audio or would there be video or data?
Now if the signal were strong enough, and grabbed someones attention, it would be easy to figure all that out. A faint signal will be lost in the sea of noise.
Drahus M. (M. Drahus), University of California , B. Young (Bin Yang), University of Hawaii and John Hodge (J. Hoge), Obedenenny Astronomical Center , reported the discovery of hydrocyanic acid (cyanide acid, HCN) in the spectrum of comet Elenin. Observations on the 15-meter submillimeter telescope, and James Clark Maxwell held on July 30, when the comet was at 7.1 AU from the sun. Taking the expiration of the anisotropic speed of gases over 0.5 km / c, and Boltzmann distribution of energy levels at 50 K, the reduced gas capacity of 1.5 x 10 25 molecules / c, which corresponds to an average level of gas capacity, measured for comet 103P/Hartley , located at a comparable heliocentric distance of the fall 2010 ((Drahus et al. 2011, Ap.J. 734, L4).
"That's about the amount of energy you'd get if you converted the entire mass of Jupiter into pure energy via E = mc^2," said Cleaver, an energy far beyond anything humanity can currently envision creating.

So the original interview is from GLP and the "Navy" officer, says not only is Elenin a space ship (or something along those lines) but also, that he flew to it...
And that was just a jog, he has been 250ly away from Earth before too.
Forget the Ham radio.....
Hey I like Science Fiction...even better if I can tune into hear it on a Ham radio.
Plus I just file everything away for future reference...
He could have at LEAST come to ATS to post...GLP is...well...

But, the fact remains people...the 'Naval Space Command' either existed/exists...and we have no way of finding out...
You could just go to their web page:
It appears that after 1995 they changed their name to "Space and Naval Warfare Command," or "SPAWAR," a much zippier name:
In addition to being fanciful, the author of this hoax is not up to date.
Edit to correct spelling error. There is no such thing as "Earfare."edit on 15-8-2011 by DJW001 because: (no reason given)

Your not listening for noise or whats going on at what frequency. Your listening for a voice or a morse code or something of intelligence coming through. You can take the car radio and find stations by dialing a knob and tell who is far away and who is not and if you notice the broadcasters both on local AM or FM once far away...their voices start to degrade and become fuzzy because there is simply no way their signal can reach you an longer. Noise just tells you there is noise and that you are not within range of anything.

Sooo... again, because it is not know it can't exist, or it can exist but it is alien? I'm just trying to point out that when you say it has no "known" energy source does not mean it cannot exist... I think you see my point here as you say now that it would have to be alien, I take that to mean that you admit that a source of power COULD in fact be there for it to produce a radio signal that we just know nothing about... So case in point you cannot without a doubt be saying that there is no way it could be producing a signal... Am I reading that right?
