If we are not in our own galaxy when we send out radio waves - which galaxy are we in?

"let alone reached any other galaxies."

If there is a possibility of intelligent life, as advanced, or more advanced than our own, on other planets, in other solar systems, why would there not be a possibility that these other life forms may have receiving stations and boosters to pickup and forward our communications waves back to their own base planets? This may also explain how we may be picking up our own radio waves because they may be boosted by some other outer source in some place out there.

"Remember radio waves are light waves. They travel at the speed of light."

Would you please send me the source of this information: The speed of Radio waves:

"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!"

Who said about waves having to leave out of our galaxy from the original source?
