Hello Folks,

A couple of questions,

1. I am planning a project Argus station. Are there versions of
SETI signal analysis software for linux?
At a pinch I guess I could run SETIfox under dosemu.
A search of failed to turn up anything.

2. The dish (3M) I am building (actually rebuilding) will be fixed
until I can figure out a low cost way of steering.
So what are the tradeoff's? Is the additional cost of steering
worth it? Or can I just shift it a few degrees each year?(!)
Finally, are there any preferred directions to look? I am located
in North East Victoria, Australia. QF23TP.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
