    <p>Hi.</p>
    <p>There needs to be a full definition of the quantity that is more
      precise than the sentence below. Keep in mind that not every
      quantity needs a standard name. I have one question in particular.
      Is this a quantity that is comparable across different radars?</p>
    <p>Grace and peace,</p>
    <p>Jim<br>
