Oumuamua and the recent FRBs. Is there a connection?

So far, only one FRB has been discovered which keeps repeating – FRB 121102. Those bursts have been at higher frequencies, up to 7 GHz, and were traced back to a galaxy 3 billion light-years away. Rising just ahead of the winter constellation Orion, FRB 121102 – the one discovered at Arecibo – has a home in the pentagon-shaped constellation Auriga. “There’s a patch of the sky from which we’re getting this signal – and the patch of the sky is arc minutes in diameter. In that patch are hundreds of sources. Lots of stars, lots of galaxies, lots of stuff,” said Chatterjee. news.cornell.edu...

It is inevitable that another possible origin would come up in discussion – aliens.

Astronomers believe that 'Oumuamua (the name means "messenger from afar arriving first" in Hawaiian) must have come from a solar system with at least one large gas giant planet. The European Space Agency's Gaia mission pinpointed the precise locations of stars. That atlas is important not just to allow scientists to identify potential source solar systems, but also to calculate how nearby stars and their gravity tugged the object off-course along its journey.

Combining those two pieces of information, the team identified four possible stars that could have birthed 'Oumuamua: red dwarf HIP 3757, HD 292249, and two other stars without nicknames as of yet. Red dwarf HIP 3757 is located in the constellation Cetus. Next to Cetus is Orion.

A theory proposed last year from Harvard University, was that FRBs could be leakage from planet-sized transmitters powering interstellar probes in distant galaxies. The idea is that such transmitters could be used to drive interstellar light sails. The amount of power involved would be sufficient to push a payload of about a million tons (about 20 times the largest cruise ships on Earth). www.cfa.harvard.edu...

Would it have taken that signal 3 billion years to get here?

Yeah, in the traditional sense, but what if they were super advanced and launched the transmissions through a created wormhole in order to save 97.5% of the travel time? An interesting possibility but pure conjecture of course.

If they had the technology to open wormholes wouldn't they be able to send more information than 2 signals?

They think they know but they don't know what they don't know.

It's guesswork at best, they think they know where it came from, how far away the source is, and have theories about what the source is.

In reality, it could have a closer source, or could be a relayed or reflected signal from another location altogether.

Depends on how much faith you have in the science and methods being used. All based on limited and highly theoretical understanding of how the universe works.

Yeah. That is true. At least they know what area of the sky to keep watching and listening to.

Perhaps that technology included sending that probe or ship "Oumuamua".

If they were advanced enough to create a wormhole then they probably would use something like quantum communication or better.

With that kind of distance, there could be a lensing effect caused by the signal going through a region of high gravitational density. It could cause a multipath condition where the same signal was split in a way that would cause part of it to travel a greater distance, thus the delay of arrival from part of the same signal.

We see this lensing occur with light from extremely distant galaxies, so why could this not happen also with an electromagnetic wave of different frequency?

What is Oumuamua's position as of now? It's trajectory would be interesting to look at.

That could explain it. An Electromagnetic Lens. I read on another thread about someone creating an electromagnetic diode, of sorts, and that would be the easiest way to transverse the universe, with a type of RF communication signal.

I believe the initial

Does RF qualify as quantum?
