Hi Greg and All,

SETI or rather the people who are implementing the SETI search
model are not searching for radio signals with modulation, such
as "sounds". Additionally, you have the direction of the "radio"
signals confused, SETI is not transmitting, just "listening".
 Finally, the hoped for SETI signal's "message" is the frequency
of the ETI transmitted signal, which is known loosely within the
SETI community as the "water-hole" frequencies. Regarding the
effectiveness of seti@home, who knows?
