    The patterns are too similar to be just collisions

    "The same signal raised in pitch by 12 notes"

    As a person with a lot of music experience... I pretty much do soundscapes and atmospherics. I've experimented with Industrial Noize. I use a lot of noise generators and radio signals and mess them around in sound editors. I can tell you that if you pitch shift just about anything down 12 notes, it's going to sound alien.

    Before you pitch shift it, it doesn't sound anything like speech. I wouldn't claim to know what it is, but I'd be far more inclined to go with an unknown natural source. A borealis, perhaps.

    If you mean an alien musical instrument, then that would seem more possible to me. It doesn't sound like speech to my ears, but it does sound a lot like a sample I could create using Reaktor.

    Extensive scientific analysis reveals a short 3 word message "Yanks go home" A universal interplanetary message thought to be well understood by all forms of life. Seriously probably just electrical storm noise - let's face it, if youy can process rocks into spaceships then noise into voice is a doddle.

    I woulnd't say it was speech, but then again.

    Megabrain hit the nail on the head. It's just a lot of electric energy being released by storms. I heard no voices, music, or anything. Just a simple pattern that can be duplicated by our own lightning strikes.

    So you are one of these cultist unbelievers who claim that lightning is not intelligent! 8)

    Well, it obviously is a parakeet. Not any parakeet but the ghostly presence of my auld parakeet "Willi" who died at the age of 12, some 25 years ago. I want the NASA go there and bring Willi back. 8)
