Default US Navy Ordered to Listen for Martian Radio Broadcasts in 1924

It seems that a SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence)
experiment happened decades before the Project Ozma occurred in 1960.
The historians at the blog Letters of Note have uncovered a telegram
sent in 1924 by then Chief of Naval Operations Edward W. Eberle
instructing the United States Navy to listen for radio transmissions
from the planet Mars.
