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.

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.
