So far 46 exoplanets have been detected within habitable zones I wonder if there is a way to cross reference them with these signals?
ok I'm confused now. is the above list positive for detected signals or does it mean they have only been scanned?
The last HD planet, HD 218566 on the list...this one,
140942 | 23.1530556 | -2.2608333 | HD 218566
This planet is number 11 on the "habitable zone" exoplanet list.
11 HD 218566 b 0.21 0.6873 0.3 225.7 habitable
HD 218566 29.94 23:09:11.0 -02:15:39 K3V 0.38 0.85 8.63 0.511 0.68 0.98

I'm wondering how to proceed with the following....
So I found a list of SETI candidate signals on the SETI Institute servers.
Some of these signals were seen multiple times from the same target star or area of sky on multiple beams. (Thus ruling out terrestrial interference)
Signals were observed on the same basic frequencies.
The target numbers are from an internal database (possibly HabCat but I'm not sure and am currently looking to confirm this) so identifying the particular star by popular name or standard catalogue numbers is tricky.
We may very well be hearing advanced civilizations out there but there is no way to get to them with our current understanding of travel.
Given the margins of error in the position of the Ohio State University 'Wow Signal' ( plus or minus 10 arc seconds Right Ascension, plus or minus 20 arc minutes Declination) it wasn't possible to point to a specific star as the possible source of the signal. A great many stars reside within the area defined.
stop teasing and start posting , ether that or come and give us a hand in the potentials thread , you never know you might beat blueshift to the punch , and heas already got a double P under his belt,

Also, we could be very well "spotted" too but the conventional modes of travel will prevent any meaningful contact. Until we break away from our current understanding of physics (speed of light barrier, etc.) and get a better grasp of gravity propulsions, which I think we are well on the way, hearing any potential signal from an advanced civilization is kind of a waste of time. We may very well be hearing advanced civilizations out there but there is no way to get to them with our current understanding of travel.

Very intriguing. I was kind of pessimistic given the exoplanet data so far. Seems like a lot of hellish planets, but not too many Earthlike worlds. But we have just started, and the galaxy is a big place, not to mention the universe. One thing that gives me hope to know the truth is this:
