In august of 2001 i heard on Coast to Coast am radio show that an answer to SETI and an alien face had been transmitted into a crop field in England. I found this interesting and decided to transmit signals using my 2 meter ham radio (ten watts) and a cubical quad beam antenna to see what would happen. I was transmitting for several nights on 146.520 FM (national calling frequency). I would transmit a series of mike cliks while aiming the antenna about 50 degrees off the horizon pointed at the south southeast direction. This antenna was mounted on the roof of my van and i was doing this nightly from about 2am to about 4am. I was also transmitting the audio from a digital timex 1000 program (sounds like a bunch of bees). Then one afternoon around 3pm I was dialing in Michael savage out of san francisco on my radio shack shortwave radio.
Suddenly the series of cliks i was transmitting around 3am in the morning were heard in the shortwave receiver. The receiver was sitting next to the transmission cable leading to the cubical quad beam antenna on the van's roof. I figure it inducted the signal into the small portable radio receiver. I was not able to figure from which night the signals were returned as I had been doing this for several nights.
If it was from the night before it would have been about a 12 hour round trip if from 2 nights before it would have been a 36 hour round trip and so on.
Then 9-11 happened and since I was sitting across the bay from Naval Air Station North Island coronado I decided to take the antenna off the roof so as not to be consider spying or anything as that. So this is one more mystery in my life that I have not figured out. I invite anyone to try this as right now the window is open up to about sept 11.
