Is Astropulse used for the FRB's? I would find SETI more interesting in that case.

No. It takes special equipment to detect FRB's and the Seti observatories do not have such.

IIRC perhaps a decade ago there was something mentioned about FRB's and Astropulse. However better to ask at Seti@home not here.

"Finding the locations of the one-off FRBs is challenging because it requires a radio telescope that can both discover these extremely short events and locate them with the resolving power of a mile-wide radio dish,"

Only Arecibo produces Astropulse work. Arecibo is not a "mile-wide" resolving antenna. Only the long baseline arrays are capable of detecting the origins of FRB's.
