For Immediate Release

LITTLE FERRY, NJ.., June 2009 -- For the fourth year in a row, the nonprofit, membership-supported SETI League is proud to announce the availability of a published Proceedings for the annual Conference of The Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers. SARA is a SETI League Affiliate Society that represents several hundred amateur radio astronomers around the world. This Proceedings is published in conjunction with SARA's 2009 Annual Meeting, being held June 28 through July 1, 2009, at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), Green Bank WV. The Proceedings includes papers on radio astronomy hardware, software, education, research strategies, and philosophy, several submitted by SETI League members.

All papers in this formal Proceedings were peer-reviewed by a panel of SARA members with appropriate professional expertise and academic credentials. Prof. H. Paul Shuch, The SETI League's Executive Director Emeritus, also serves as SARA vice president on a volunteer basis. In that capacity, he served as editor of the 2009 SARA Conference Proceedings, as well as coordinator for the joint technical meeting. Further information about SARA and their annual conference can be found on the SARA website,

The Table of Contents for the 2009 SARA Proceedings appears online, at One copy of the Proceedings is provided to each registered attendee at the 2008 SARA Conference. To benefit those SARA and SETI League members unable to attend, copies are now available from The SETI Store, at, for a suggested contribution of $20 US postpaid to US addresses, or $27 US elsewhere. The SETI League still has copies of the last three year's SARA Proceedings available as well, for the same suggested contribution.

Largely using radio telescopes and optical telescopes, SETI scientists seek to determine whether humankind is alone in the universe. Since Congress terminated NASA's SETI funding in 1993, The SETI League and other scientific groups have privatized the research. Amateur and professional scientists interested in participating in the search for intelligent alien life, and citizens wishing to help support it, should email join_at_setileague_dot_org, check the SETI League Web site at, send a fax to +1 (201) 641-1771, or contact The SETI League, Inc. membership hotline at +1 (800) TAU-SETI. Be sure to provide us with a postal address to which we will mail further information. The SETI League, Inc. is a membership-supported, non-profit [501(c)(3)], educational and scientific corporation dedicated to the scientific Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence.

P.S. Tearsheets are always appreciated. Thank you.
