Tune In The Universe!

Little Ferry, NJ.., November 2001 - The SETI League, Inc. is pleased to announce the publication of a new book on CD-ROM by Dr. H. Paul Shuch, its Executive Director and a respected radio amateur (N6TX) long involved in the microwave search for life in space.

Tune In The Universe! is a radio amateur's guide to the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). It is an interactive book on CD-ROM, which can be read on any computer with ordinary web-browser software (easy-to-use hypertext format). Its six sections are part history, part tutorial, and part memoir, with a mix of photos and songs to entertain as well as educate. It seeks to involve radio amateurs, amateur astronomers, and other hobbyists in a scientifically credible search for our cosmic companions.

"Dr. SETI, aka H. Paul Shuch, N6TX, has made an enticing, personal, good-humored, wise, and browsable book on one CD," writes SETI pioneer Prof. Philip Morrison (ex-W8FIS), who first proposed the radio search for extraterrestrial civilizations in 1959. "Tune In The Universe! is as diverse as the topic itself, packed with helpful accounts of half-a-dozen relevant disciplines, rational model calculations, detailed savvy hardware specs, memoirs of false signals both nave and subtle, and much more. It ends, after some of Dr. SETI's songs, with a smile from Dr. Mom, the First XYL of SETI. Cool!"

Science fiction luminary and SETI proponent Sir Arthur C. Clarke adds, "I congratulate Dr. Shuch on his lucid, comprehensive, and often very amusing account of the radio search for ETs. Perhaps, as some wit remarked, the best proof that there is Intelligent Life in Outer Space is the fact it hasn't come here. Well, it can't hide forever - one day we will overhear it."

Tune In The Universe! (ISBN 0-87259-854-3), copyright 2001, is published by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the national association for Amateur Radio. Dr. Shuch will donate a portion of each sale to benefit the nonprofit SETI League, Inc. Cover price is $24.95 US, through the ARRL, The SETI League, Inc., and quality book vendors everywhere. Copies will be available before the first of January, 2002. Order from ARRL online <http://www.arrl.org/catalog/?item=8543>, or telephone toll free US 1-888-277-5289, or elsewhere +1 (860) 594-0355, fax +1 (860) 594-0303.
