in reply to printing to filehandle contained in a hash

Hash keys are stringified. When you used the file handle reference as hash key, perl turned it into a string representation of the reference. The reference itself is gone!

Perhaps a hash wasn't the right choice for your data structure. Since all you're doing is iterating over your data anyway, perhaps an array of arrays (AoA) would be more useful. Untested:

# Somewhere earlier... my @radar = (); push @radar, [$fileh, $repoch] for (1..5); # ... then: for (@radar){ my ($fileh, $repoch) = @$_; # ... continue as before. }
