Can patrols only attempt to observe hidden movement markers that were the subject of a failed helicopter observation attempt earlier in the turn, or can they attempt to observe any one hidden movement marker within their patrol radius, regardless of whether it was the subject of a helicopter observation attempt? The way I read 22.214.171.124 it is the first case, but in the example of play the Delta patrol makes an observation attempt on hidden movement marker #5, which was not the subject of aerial observation earlier in the example (unless I missed it).
They may make their own attempts. The language in 126.96.36.199 is simply trying to convey that you can get another shot at Hidden Movement Marker if the aerial or helicopter observation failed.
