If this message was received & responded to, don't you think an ET race far more advanced than our own would have difficulty translating it? Even when our own race can translate languages long died out on Earth? To me it seems like childs play for an advanced race to translate our own language.

I think there might be a connection to circle crops and the face on Mars, aka alien face on Mars? Aliens on Mars.

Okay, but now we're postulating the existence of an alien species that has coexisted with human beings on earth for thousands of years, with intimate knowledge of our communication systems and technology, without any evidence to suggest their existence besides a few crop circle patterns. But assuming that, then yes, I think they'd have a good chance of figuring out how to write in ASCII.

But here's something to think about...
Most of the signals we sent into space from the beginning of Radio up to about six years ago were analog signals, okay? We are COMPLETELY switching over to digital transmissions now. We all had to get new televisions, right? Or at least get digital converters for our old analog televisions.
But WHY did we switch over from analog to digital?
Cleaner signal? Better resolution? Government control of ALL communications?
Or do they not want us watching analog television because there are OLD ANALOG SIGNALS returning to Earth from other civilizations?
