    Tried eta bootis , aka Mufrid out yet? Known for anomalous spectrographic readings.Has a companion, which seems to be considered a Dwarf star in some out-of-game references.

    Ok bit of a stretch but looking up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epsilon_Bo%C3%B6tis - made me look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duncan_Lunan (who by odd coincidence lives near me), anyway this bit about the alien message looks interesting and the link to a probe in Arcturus had me looking at that wiki page as well - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcturus.
    At this point I may well have disappeared up a hole in the internet , but something in all that is ringing bells to me.

    I remember somewhere, a list of (some) inhabited star systems released by FD. Anyone has a link, or knows about this?

    Now I found this today:

    http://www.drewwagar.com/progress-re...-tijani-loren/



    The underlined part is cursive in the original text. Have a look there.
    At first I thought this cursive was just a mishap so I googled for it and found his first news article:

    http://www.drewwagar.com/progress-re...and-adventure/

    At the end of the text, where authors normally put their initials he put it again:



    In a grey font, nearly the same as the background so you can barely see it.


    I will take a screenie later but wanted to put this out first.
    Get your brains going!

    What does it mean?

    Ok i have been keeping an eye on this thread for ages and have laughed my head off at some of the theories. But......... i have just listened to the extended recording on page 192. Now i am pretty good with morse code, well more than pretty good actually and at about 12 seconds in i can definitely hear morse code anyway dont know if it means anything to you guys or if it has been stated before but it definitely says HEBO 4. please someone else listen to confirm this. and remember you heard it here first.

    I have a copy of that, all systems and co-ordinates in the gamma system. I can dig it out if anyone wants it. I have an excel file and a mySQL version.

    A lot of these were recorded around stations. In my recording, we heard Mellvill Gateway. Guess where I recorded it? Mellvill Gateway, a station in 109 Virginis. Also, if there is a message, it defiantly isn't in morse, since it is more complex than say, binary, and would not be universally understood by species.

    I must admit, I didn't pay much attention to that on first glance. I was too distracted by other aspects of the article.

    Was that particular recording made anywhere near a station whose name includes "hebo 4" by any chance? The reason I ask is because a friend of mine spotted something similar with a recording made near "Melvill Gateway" (i.e. he decoded "elvill gateway" from the morse). My conclusion was that stations broadcast their own name in morse as part of the background audio and this is what was being heard (i.e. not from the UA at all, unless the UA somehow echos or boosts the station's morse transmission).
