Might I suggest that anything written in this regard be specifically
brought to the attention of the seti@home folks? I'd love to take part
in seti@home, but I'm slightly worried that with their apparent focus
on the Windows crowd that the Linux users will be left in the dark.

I wish I could contribute to this or seti@home, but knowing nothing
about X/DSP/etc programming makes it tough. I'm a database and commandline
hacker...

Hmm, thinking of databases...if anything is done regarding keeping a
database of known satellites and correlating it against hits, hooks
could be written into signal processing programs to query a database
for current satellite positions/transmission frequencies...
