bj.OperationThe radar itself had a nominal 100 kW peak average output and a nominal pulse repetition frequency of 4000 pulses/second. The radar was connected by cable to the operator's console (`Indicator Azimuth Unit') and connected to this was the `Mortar Coordinate Indicator' that displayed the located mortar's position to the detachment commander. The Foster scanner converted a narrow radar beam, about 40 mils diameter, into one 720 mils wide and 30 mils high. This beam had five pre-set operating positions determined by five different radar horns that directed the beam onto the antenna at slightly di
