Is it snowing where you are, Mr. Thiessen?

radio_labThese are, of course, the famous first words ever heard broadcast on radio waves, transmitted by Canadian scientist, Reginald Aubrey Fessenden on December 23rd, 1900.

No one answered.

History did not record whether it was actually snowing at Mr. Thiessen's location, but I can tell you that it's snowing like hell in Antarctica, and like Mr. Thiessen, I am unable to respond to the transmission I just received.

It is now without a doubt that these alien signals are undeniably, unequivocally, absolutely authentic.

Today, at 18:57:09 NZST, December 10, 2009, I received another transmission from RA12h42m36.9s,DE-11°19′35″ on a frequency of 372097.2 Hz.  I also received a repeat of another previously received signal also at 18:57:09 NZST, but slightly out of phase with the new transmission. Both signals have been tested with a Gaussian curve-fit to rule out terrestrial interference. I will immediately return to Station151, reconnect the computer systems to the Array, and begin work on fully decoding these messages. The transmissions are as follows. First the new transmission, followed by the transmission initially received on 04 Dec 2009, in complete form, and the spectral analysis of each phase:

Spectral Analysis

I feel like I should say something profound, but my heart is pounding and I am at a loss.
