Default 688(I) Sonar and radar confusion

I'm studying the manual right now and I'm a bit confused. I understand how sonar works but why are there two waterfalls when using the towed array? The manual explains something about copying the signal or something but i still don't get it.

The other thing I don't understand is that the game keeps telling me the antenna for radar has failed. What am i doing wrong?

You are probably too deep for Radar antenna. Depth for radar is different (you shallower) than depth for periscope.
And radar is immediatly broken when antenna is under water surface.
I don't remember what is best depth for radar - you should check it in manual or in game help.

Edit:

I've checked in game and game manual. Radar needs max speed 5 kts and max depth 60 ft
