< At first the part-time astronomer who discovered the signals
would not reveal his identity. However he has since been named as Paul Dore of Siemens Plessey Systems in the UK. He has been using a small radio telescope belonging to his firm to scan the sky for intelligent signals. On October 22 and on the following night, he reported detecting signals from the EQ Pegasi star system which is 22 light years away. The signals were not the type that occurs naturally. The data has been distributed to several astronomers and observatories. However astronomers at the Jodrell Bank Observatory in England say it is all a case of mistaken identity. Astronomer Ian Morrison told BBC News Online: "I think he has detected signals from a satellite." >
Other evidence more strongly suggests either that Dore's story changes when challenged, or (remote possibility) some hasty disinformation moves.
