Project Argus coordinator Scott Carter admits that this time series purporting to depict active Project Argus radio telescopes is probably an unrealistic estimate, owing to our members' infrequent to nonexistent filing of periodic activity reports (see last week's Featured Photo). Though the number of participating stations has in fact decreased since our peak a decade and a half ago, we suspect that more complete reporting would paint a less dismal picture.

This compilation from Project Argus coordinator Scott Carter confirms that, once their stations are registered, very few of our Project Argus participants choose to keep us regularly informed of their status, upgrades, and progress. Those of us who seek interstellar communications are going to have to do a much better job of communicating terrestrially!

A disappointing graph submitted by Project Argus coordinator Scott Carter shows that, in its first five years, our flagship technical project was attracting between 14 and 22 new registered radio telescopes per year. Sadly, since our peak in 2001, registration of new participants has dropped off to a mere trickle. We are open to suggestions of ways to revitalize our global, coordinated search.
