So they would look for evidence of intelligent origin first...and our radio waves are telling the galaxy where we are.
Not only has it been noted that radio waves and any excess *noise* diminishes with distance, especially when talking about dozens of

"good aliens" side of the possibilities.
Why? Why is this? Is it borne out of too many Hollywood depictions (all fiction, and written as such)?
