A Western Airway Investment Inc. Diamond DA 20-C1 (C-GGOT) from London, ON (CYXU) to London, ON (CYXU) departed Runway 15 and requested a return to the airport, reporting a radio failure 3 miles west of the airport. The aircraft squawked 7600, contacted the tower by cell phone, and was instructed to join the right downwind for Runway 15 and was given their sequence. C-GGOT was able to re-establish communications by radio when on final for Runway 15 and landed without issue. 2 inbound aircraft were instructed to remain outside the control zone for approximately 3 minutes.
UPDATE: Duplicate AOR-284072-V1: A Western Airway Investment Inc. Diamond DA 20-C1 (C-GGOT) squawked 7600; this triggered the Surveillance Fusion System (FUSION), which subsequently had multiple failures. Two to three aircraft were observed squawking 7600, when only one aircraft actually squawked the code, and multiple targets swapped identifications. "Radio failure" warning sounded at least 15 times, which was a distraction. The tower had to change to London (XU) radar, which was unaffected, and the issue resolved on its own by 2220Z. The Toronto Area Control Centre (ACC) radars were also affected. Data Systems Coordinator (DSC) advised. Moderate impact to operations and safety risk. (Duplicate AOR-284072-V1 deleted after information merge)
