Yeh i mean talking about building a real plausable working machine or something not just shining something at them.
Well thats the issue right there, your talking about building a device to communicate with a being or such that probably uses something totally
unknown to us as communication. About the only thing you could do is try to get its attention which is where the idea of shining some sort of light
or beacon on them came from.
Besides if you did build like a small electronic transmission device or such, the aliens could percieve that as a weapon system (maybe their ships are
affected somehow by electronic interference). Otherwise you could just be wasting your time building something that could create a signal that they
wont be able to interpret or even notice.
The only actual communication I have heard of with aliens (which is highly speculative) is telepathy, those individuals have stated that they have
continued contact with different species for quite a while.
