Now, not to pedantic, but they did not. Waves require a medium, there's no radio waves in a vacuum. They need to pinpoint voyager, which gives a hint on the sort of communication. Waves need no pinpointing.

You seem to think that there's something that can carry a wave in a vacuum. No radio signal ever left earth, our first signal into space was television.

Fortunately I learned about that early on so it only happened to me once. My real wake up call on that was when a friend ended up in the hospital with stiches because he stepped (technically jumped) on to a toy left out.
I've been given a speech about them being 3d puzzles and it is my fault for not turning on the light.

I got scolded for being an idiot Hmmm | :|
