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.

August. 20, 1956; North Bend, Oregon (BBU)
10:15 p.m. PST. An object was initially sighted on height finder radar at 320 degrees azimuth at 54,000 feet altitude at 60 miles range. The object descended to 50,000 feet and moved to 32 degrees azimuth. The radar station contacted the radar station at Nasselle, Washington and requested that they try and get a height measurement on their radar. They were able to pick up the object and verify the original radar reading. After two hours the target faded from the radar scope.
