Hi Larry,

If you want to read how the SETI.nul project works, go to:

http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/about_seti/about_seti_at_home_1.html

It will go in to detail about what types of signals are being
sought and frequency ranges explored.


In my original reply, it should have read "OSETI is looking
in the optical range".

Terry
