This made me think of the Chilbolton 2000-2001 crop-circle "response" to the Drake/Sagan Arecibo Message. If you'll recall, there was a set of 3
pictograms. There was the "Chilbolton Man" pictogram, which consisted of a large-ish alien head (not the cartoony one--the other one); then there was
the glyph that used the same graphic format as our original message, showing a comparison of their DNA, the occupied planets of their solar system,
size and basic shape of the alien body, and on and on.
But then there was their "communication device." Although they received and decoded the original message by radio, they chose not to respond by radio;
to the contrary, one of the crop-circle glyphs was an elaborate representation of their "communication device"--obviously the very device they used to
make the crop circles. (We know this because there's a pixelated representation of it in the Arecibo "answer" glyph, clearly a counterpart of the
radio tower that we used to send the original.) And the schematic of this device was placed directly next to the radio tower in the field where the
crop circles were put down, as if to push our noses in it.
trying to make the point that this particular ET culture communicates with one another by crop circle! My point is that they chose not
to respond by radio, even though they obviously were scanning the radio spectrum themselves; and that they apparently considered radio an inferior
enough form of communication that they didn't even bother to build the alien equivalent of a "crystal set" to answer us with.
I think what I'm trying to say is that they didn't bother to try to communicate with us using whatever tech they normally communicate with, because we
obviously don't have a receiver for it. Because of that, and because the method they had already established to communicate with us was the crop
circle, then that was what they used. But not radio! For whatever reason, most emphatically not radio....
