NASA, the ESA, Roscosmos, and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) all have plans for future generations of Venus probes which will hopefully unravel the mystery further in coming years.
Some were skeptical of the discovery in the archives, however, suggesting that, without additional detail, the traces discovered may in fact just be noise picked up by the sensors.
The signals that they are trying to separate are very small and very close together.
And if it *is* in this spectrum I would want to see it at more than just one altitude. Make absolutely sure it's not noise.

Others added that, if the signal was strong and conclusive to begin with, it would likely have raised eyebrows decades ago.
Interesting to see some folks have made up their minds that it absolutely is not there. Which is just as silly as being certain it is there at this point…
Looking for it in archival data is a good move, but if it were a clear signal it likely would have been published before…
