It's not a 100% accurate way to do it, especially if two systems are similar, or use the same radar, but they can narrow it down pretty close, and in a lot of cases, they can tell you exactly what system it is.
The only time another object appeared near the flight track was after the aircraft broke apart.

This subject has been very very quiet since it happened and the black boxes were recovered , if any proof of Russian involvement was found they would have been screaming it from the roof tops and plastering it 24/7 across the msm .

What if the Russians have deployed a new ground based radar that is not yet in the AWACs database? That would be "unidentifiable."

Since they are snooping radar bands rather than looking for their own returns, they are getting the transmitted signal power vs. the received signal power from say one of their own transmissions. The power signal amplitude to be snooped is astronomically greater than what is normal for radar send/receive range limitations.

What about satellites that can pick up missile launches?
