Several rf magnetic penetration depth measurements were performed on single crystals of Sr214 samples. It was found that the data require the existence of line nodes, in contradiction to the nodeless p-wave picture. It was argued that nonlocality may be relevant in accounting for the T2 dependence of λ(T).
