Scientists detect mystery radio signal from nearby star

Did you read the entire article?  They are not yet done with their analysis:

Quote:The researchers further analyzed the signal, and have determined that it most likely came from one or more geostationary satellites. “This explains why the signals were within the satellite’s frequencies and only appeared and persisted in Ross 128; the star is close to the celestial equator where many geostationary satellites are placed,” Méndez writes in a new post. “This fact, though, does not yet explain the strong dispersion-like features of the signals (diagonal lines in the figure); however, It is possible that multiple reflections caused these distortions, but we will need more time to explore this and other possibilities.” The Arecibo scientists collaborated with researchers from the SETI Institute to reach their conclusion.

And, so, they are not done with it quite yet.
