This discussion came up recently on the "Tech Net", hosted by K2RIW on
Long Island, an audio archive of which can be found at: http://amateurradio.tv/
Specifically, 40 minutes into the following clip, the PAVE PAWS discussion
can be found:
(It's a 6.5 MB file)
The discussion points out that this RADAR system has been around for quite a
number of years and is an extremely agile system, so it should be immune to
simple forms of interference caused by regular Amateur Radio communications.
If PAVE PAWS is *THAT* easily interfered with, and that fact is not a secret,
what does that say about its usefulness?
