had three seperate encounters today, no saves, but encounters none the less, helped me guage some things, and I need your input, maybe IM jsut not used to this detector yet and it did fine, I'm not sure.
First one was driving to work this morning, now the picture is a couple years old, the offramp wasnt done yet, its done now obviously. The highway there is Rt 315, right smack in the middle of Columbus OH. Point A is where ive been picking up 2 different falses. One being a weak X band, and another being a weak K band, I think there might be 2 different types of door openers in the vicinity. The building you see in the upper right is one of the Ohio State University Medical Center buildings. The two signals usually alternate as I come down the ramp as they take turns in signal strength, and this continues all the way to point F as i make my way to the other main road, they usally are gone by the time i reach the intersection, but this time at about midway between A and B it settled on X and increased to a three bar signal, so I look around and right accross the intersection aimed right at me is a OSU Campus Police Officer at point C, coming down the hill. The light is green so I turn right at B and he follows through point D and falls in behind me at point E and him at F. At this point it jumps to a 4 Bar, then fades to nothing at the intersection, and we go opposite ways. I dont know why it never climbed beyond a 4 bar reading, I would have thought the Bel would have gone nuts with him facing right at me. I thought radar was either constant on, burst on, like instant on or not in use, what gives with the "half-assed" readings.
The second encounter was not 2 minutes later right up the road, I depicted only the turn around trip, but I actually encountered this LEO going west bound while he was with a customer facing the same way, as i went by the LEO, the Bel only hit a level 6 alert then faded as i got further, I wasnt suprised at this since it was facing away, it still held the alert for better then .4 miles after I passed him. I decided to drive a ways down and turn around and come back at him. So i turned around and drove east at him, I picked up the K signal at Point A (bout .6 miles away, traffic was pretty heavy), it ramped up to (what should have been i THOUGHT) a full alert, 7 bar signal, but the beeping I thought was less frantic then it should have been at a 7 bar reading, is this normal? I would have thought this thing would have been beeping so fast it would sound like one solid beep. but again, maybe im not sure
I have to get going now, Ill be back to post the third encounter in a bit.
Love to hear thoughts on these two, ask questions if you need more info, or tell me Im an anal idiot, and my detector is fine =p
