You could certainly receive the radar signal being directed toward you, but
it would not mean anything - you wouldn't receive the signal of a target
which happened to be illuminated at the time, and you certainly wouldn't
receive such signals from any other direction (with any certainty about what
was illuminating them, or when). Unless you got *really* clever and
identified the RF signature of each transmitter.....(mind starts to boggle
at the garage full of home-brew equipment at this stage!).
