It shows up on the Gearing DDR AA class, which are radar pickets.

Just a guess, but I would think DF would stand for Direction Finder. As pickets, they would want to detect and home in on enemy radar for early warning purposes.

It is probably a radar in game since DF does not work.

It's settings are the same as a surface search radar. I'm thinking it was originally set up as an air DF device, but never implemented.

JeffroK laid out some good RW info above.

So, nothing to see here, move along.
