Normally, I'm not one for Astronomical documentation, mainly cause I don't have the attention span for it.
What happens if any E.T civ. doesn't use the same frequencies that we use for communication. I mean the endurance and strength of radio signals could go for quite a ways. The odds of an E.t race blastin their own top 20 hits, or some diplomat extremists making some speech could be good, considering we did it.
However, any E.t that capable of interstellar travel with easy, would be using Ftl communications. We couldn't pick it up, or maybe even notice it. While they could pick any signal we sent.
Better off wishing on a shooting star.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated!
Is there anyway we can get a list update? Would be interesting to see exactly where that star is and if any other info is known about it. (Kepler Data etc.)
