Distinguishing Features :
Remarks : A radar reflector is usually a 'tetrahedron or pentagonal corner reflector (...) to facilitate reflection towards the sender' (International Maritime Dictionary, 2nd Ed.). The object 'radar reflector' is only used to encode a device specifically intended to reflect radar signals. If any other object, e.g. topmark, buoy, beacon, etc. is radar conspicuous, because of its construction, the attribute 'CONRAD' must be used.
