There seems to be a view that the reference by Dr Hawass to a radar survey by Dr Kent Weeks is a slip and he meant Nicholas Reeves. I think not. Kent Weeks and the Theban Mapping Project (TMP) undertook a radar survey in 1986 when they were trying to rediscover known tombs which had been lost again. Apparently the results were poor because the mislaid tombs were debris filled. They swapped to magetometry with more success and was helpful in relocating KV48 and KV49.

So far as I am aware the TMP survey results have not been published.
