  • Could you explain the sequence of events here in more detail, please? I see:

    0:33 – two strong peaks from both antennas present
    0:44 – several windows start appearing, buttons get clicked
    1:08 – windows gone, peaks still there
    (right seems to vanish briefly, then is back for good)
    1:35 – cheering erupts

    What happened in the full minute between the first appearance of the peaks and the onset of cheering, what operation was performed with all those pop-up windows – and what exactly caused the sudden cheering?
