Ask Dr. SETI ®
I am finding it to be very important to myself that I find some means of setting up a listening station in a limited space. I can't believe that this is impossible anymore than I can believe that we are alone in the universe. Therefore, until my resources are expanded beyond what they are at the moment, I will be researching how to set up a SETI station in a small space and still get the sensivity and resolution needed. Do you have any suggestions on how this might be done, or where I should look for help on this issue?
The Doctor Responds:
At the moment we consider all microwave frequencies to be fair game for interstellar communications. The ready availability of receive converter kits for the 13 cm, 5 cm, 3 cm, and even the 1.25 cm ham bands should significantly increase your options. And even though The SETI League is concentrating its engineering efforts on the 21 cm hydrogen line at the moment, we'd like nothing better than for one of our members to develop an "all-band" microwave scanner! Feel like doing some pioneering work, Dave?
