    On April 22 I reported this obs of 71-116 B:
    
    71-116 B 01-04-21 21:55:43   LB  183.6 0.2  10 18.36  FF, 4->i, P=12.72+5.64
    Timings: 12.20 6.10 12.09 5.90 12.29 5.84 12.85 5.78 12.53 5.69 12.18 6.17
    13.27 4.98 13.12 5.46 13.42 5.02 13.26 5.45 sec. This gives the combined
    period of 12.72 + 5.64 = 18.36 sec. When there were invisible flashes in
    the long period, the overall period would be 6.12 sec over 30 flashes.; but
    this doesn't fit the obs in PPAS.
    
    This fits well with the obs reported by Ed Cannon today.
    It seems that this object has an secondary flashperiod superinposed on its
    primary.
    The flashes were indeed easily observed.
