RADCAT is a revitalized special project now being conducted jointly by NICAP & Project 1947 with the help and cooperation of the original compiler of RADCAT, Martin Shough, to create a comprehensive listing of radar cases with detailed documentation from all previous catalogues, including UFOCAT and original RADCAT.

Target Circles Radar Site
Nov. 6, 1948
Wakkanai, Japan

Fran Ridge:
According to NICAP sources, Air Force radar men in Japan  tracked two oddly maneuvering UFOs for over an hour. One radar scope apparently showed what looked like two airplanes dogfighting, but there were no conventional aircraft in the area. Type "G", ground radar, no visual.

Dan Wilson: 
November 6, 1948; Wakkanai, Japan
At 11:57 a.m. local time, a radar operator at a ground radar station observed a blip on the radar screen. The target first appeared as one object but at times appeared as 2 targets. The speed of the object(s) was estimated varying from 160 mph to 240 mph. The target circled the radar site continuously for one hour and five minutes. No interception action was taken due to adverse weather.  (McDonald list, Dan Wilson)
