Cool, John. For those who haven't seen Doppler tracking of Hex swarms before, here's a link to the PSU Behrend site that has several neat little movies and an explanation of how the Doppler tracking is done:

Gonzo, Interesting! I would guess the size of the insects hatching and the density of the hatch has to be pretty amazing to show up. In my experience I have only heard of it on radar for the Hex. hatch, no other mayflies.

The E. luekon/album hatch I have seen on a couple occasions extremely dense as well and covered some bridges, but I have not heard of it on droppler radar.
