ARLX068 Pact in alien search

The nonprofit SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence)
League has entered into an agreement with Down East Microwave Inc.
The company, owned by Steve Kostro, N2CEI since 1994, is located in
Frenchtown, New Jersey, and manufactures equipment for amateurs for
6 meters and above.

Under the agreement, according to SETI League Executive Director
Paul Shuch, N6TX, Down East Microwave will produce and market
amplifiers, filters, down-converters, and other receive equipment
designed by SETI League engineers, with profits to be donated to the
SETI League's research fund.

Kostro said that ''radio amateurs are in a unique position to succeed
where government agencies have thus far failed.  SETI is no longer
science fiction, but mainstream science, and Down East Microwave is
pleased to have a role in this important research.''

An article about the search for extraterrestrial intelligence and
the role that radio amateurs can play in it appeared in August 1995
QST on page 37.
