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.

At 9:45 p.m. PST, three USAF radar operators tracked one target for 13 minutes at speeds estimated as fast as 3000 knots on an AN/FPS-3 radar. The target was inbound from Prescott Radio toward Thermal Radio, seemed to check 20 NM north of Thermal, then turned outbound toward Telescopepeak. According to the report, the object appeared to be using radio aids at Blythe, Thermal, Dagget and Inyokern.   Maintenance said there was no internal interference on the radar equipment and the target did not resemble any previously know interference. The track passed out of radar limits. (Dan Wilson)
