Reading the posts in this thread, and their difficulties, am
reminded of the Paul Davies (SETI Contact Team) concept of
finding ET's footprint instead of a broadcast message. One was
by finding spectrum readings of 'impossible' complex elements
burning in a medium-young star; that is, elements which couldn't
have been produced by the star itself.

Davies envisaged that happening when ET or its robots had
mined-out a solar.system and dumped their waste products into the
primary, but you could also use that method as a simple and quite
long-lasting beacon.

Any other, more active broadcasting beacons have big problems
with power and durability - i.e. the lack of.
