Open-sourcing SETI

The setiQuest project has released its first open source code in an effort to have anyone interested help search for intelligent life out there.

The source code for Open SonATA is available on GIT Hub now and covers three programs:

The waterfall display shows the power for each bin in a subchannel. The power values are reported every .75 seconds. The brighter the dot, the stronger the power.
