SETHI is a survey of the distribution of galactic neutral hydrogen being performed comensally at the NAIC Arecibo Observatory. At the same time that observers use receivers in the Gregorian dome, SETHI is recording a 2.5MHz band centered at 1420 MHz from a flat feed on Carriage House 1. During normal astronomical observations, the SETHI feed scans across the sky at twice the sidereal rate. During 4 years of observations, we have accumulated over 15,000 hours of data covering most of the sky

These data are being converted into spectra and is housed in a database at UCB. It is our intention to make this data publicly accessible. We briefly discuss the status of this effort and show some results obtained with this data.
