Our radio waves havent exited our own galaxy yet, let alone reached any other galaxies. Remember radio waves are light waves. They travel at the speed of light. It would take about 25,000 years from the time we started emitting our own radio waves before they even leave our galaxy. To reach another galaxy, hehe, well that'd be a Lot longer!
