OSETI is looking in the optional range and most other SETI
projects are looking for analog signals.

One could reason that any signal that might be picked up could
have been broadcast tens of thousands of years ago, perhaps
longer. It may very well be that their civilization was at a
more 'primitive's stage in their technological evolution at that
time. If their civilization has survived all this time, they
could be some of the ones visiting us now.

I'm all for any kind of study whose aim is to detect ETI
anywhere in this universe, whether it's on Melmac or here on
