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.

Radar Alert On Keno Mountain
Early 1970's
Kingsley Field, Oregon

Fran Ridge
Sometime in the 1970's, Keno Mountain, Oregon
The incident began with a civilian Close Encounter of the Third Kind, followed by an official alert involving defense radar and F-106's. At that time, Beale AFB, California, was carrying on operational flights with the fantastic SR-71 Blackbird and the hover site of these objects was very near that location.

At the time of the incident, Harold Hartig was a Staff Sergeant, Air Force supervisor and radar operator (rated, 27370) in the United States Air Force. His security clearance was SECRET throughout his entire career. In 1989 Mr. Hartig found out that he had only 2-3 years to live. He decided that several events that he had taken part in should be recorded for historical and scientific reasons. The following report was filed with me on September 7, 1989. Mr. Hartig surprisingly lived another seven years, but passed away in January of 1996.
