National Geographic supported a "reply" to the Wow! signal last year, but as far as I can tell, it's just a publicity stunt. Certainly there's no scientific reason to beam signals deliberately into space. What's your rationale for seeing it done, ConRefit?
I had not read anywhere that we have deliberately sent messages to nearby star systems. The thought being, our random transmissions may not have enough power to be discernible at such distances. If memory serves, we still have to point dishes at the Voyager probes to send and receive messages from them. And they're still relatively nearby.
