Actually, this appeal letter was not addressed to me but to the COSETI Coordinator, Larry Klaes.  As a Planetary Society member I normally received these appeals.  I wonder why I didn't get one this time!   I remember when I received the appeal letter for the Harvard BETA project.  I declined to make a donation after some consideration, because of my strong belief that subdividing the RF spectrum into smaller and smaller bins (bandwidths) was going in the wrong direction, and what we should be doing instead was to move up to the optical spectrum and increase bin widths.  This point was made in the Preface to the six-part 1992 EJASA article on page 4.
