Not trying to get overly detailed...

I've inadvertently had conversations with Air Traffic Control
personnel on three separate occasions and this type of response
is consistent with my experiences.

For the serious UFO investigator, I would encourage you to form
a professional investigatory relationships with your local air
traffic personnel in order to collect observational data over an
extended period of time. It's worth asking rather than assuming
they wouldn't cooperate. Make it as open as possible and state
your case in writing: best time to collect information, what you
will do with the information (let them control this as much as
they're willing to cooperate), and that you will share your
analysis and findings with them.

Radar is by far the best source of high tech equipment available
to anyone. Radar can reflect off metal surfaces and ionization
clouds depending upon the radar wavelength, material density,
absorption, and reflectance coefficients. They can also give
height, distance, and size information which could be a valuable
aid in finding ground observers. Weather radar operators are
another source of similar information operating at a different
wavelength and operational-functional ability.

It is uncertain how often radar is filtered for observation
which could limit some of it's potential for gathering
information and it is worth establishing what limitations might
exist before embarking on a full study or attempting such and
informal relationship. However, there is no doubt that you will
learn something valuable in the shortest time possible with the
highest potential for success over the long term.

Anyone with a technical bent can learn quite a bit about radar
in a short period of time. I would also encourage you to get a
(the) radar operators manual if available as well, even another
one from
years past.
