Re: Uh, am I the only one

It’s the observed frequency we’re seeing though, we have to correct for redshift (something that is hard to do given we don’t know the source).

If we assume it’s intergalactic in origin, redshift of z=3 isn’t unreasonable, meaning it was at least 2.4GHz at source - so maybe an intergalactic wifi signal :-D
