Hello my name is Frank Lombard and I have a question as to the practical approach to listening for extraterrestrial radar. Deep space radar signals would operate at short wave lengths, use polarization methods and transmit short pulses. Can SETI listen for these signals? Also Considering that radar systems range over a spectrum of 1.2 GHZ to 10 GHZ or perhaps even higher, could SETI bandwidth be too narrow to find such a signal? Finally could the search for a signal with a intelligent message be the wrong approach? I would greatly appreciate any answers to these questions. Thank you.
