Hi Stacey,

    Well I guess I should have said around field day... I just remember it was near that time frame... RUDAK had crashed and the
signal was clean....if my rotten memory serves  Rudak was down for 4 days or so... I was on several times talking to G's and we were
both on L and it was clean... once RUDAK was reloaded then the warble came back....
   I am a firm believer that the sat does suffer from radar "pulse type" interference.... this is obvious with sstv pictures, U has
sparkles L does not.... that in itself suggests that L does not suffer as much as U  from radar... anyway if  your sure its radar
then that is fine... but I will be curious when the squints get better and rudak come back on if the RADAR all of a sudden gets
worse and the warble comes back...
