A month later, it was renamed KPRC. Experts were at a loss, saying it would have taken an eccentric billionaire with a network of covert high power transmitters to override mid-afternoon programming across England without BBC broadcast technicians seeing anything wrong. And perhaps it would have
My friend wanted to know if it was possible that aliens had received the signal and retransmitted it to Earth on a tight high power beam as an attempt at communications
