Apparently SpaceViews got mixed up...two amatuers, K.F. Benton and Jay
Oka confirmed the signal... as did Australia's CSIRO ATNF. But ATNF
dismisses it as a satellite. I find this a bit hard to swallow, due to
the fact the signal has remained at the same RA and Dec, but I suppose
if the orbit of the satellite were weird enough, it could do this. It
certainly isn't geosyncronous as some SETI people have claimed. What
kind of a satellite might transmit at 1453 MHz?
