Local PD has placed a traffic radar sign on my street and I've been able to make more observations in regards to my v940 and it's detection. It's ended up confusing me quite a bit now so here are my questions.
Firstly, if the sign is to my left, and I am in the right lane heading toward the back of the sign, oncoming traffic in the left lane, the detector will alert but when I pass the sign the rampup increases as I get further away and traffic is still passing by me in the left lane, why? Is this cause the radar waves are more intense from bouncing off the cars back into the horn of my detector?
Second, if I come to a stop from a street that connects to where the radar sign is located at, I can be two car lanes away from the sign, the nose of my car pointed at the sign, and the sign pointed toward the right, once I begin to make the right hand turn, only then does the detector go to full blast detection. Why? Is the radar wave that narrow that when at a " T " you can't get a reading?
Third, when passing the sign facing it, I get a K band detection, then when I go past it "SOMETIMES" I get a Ka band detection as well, and no sign of anyone with a handheld, or cruiser shooting Ka, Why?
And forth, for Ka band detection, I've been able to see the source far before the detector even goes off, is this type of detection normal for a radar detector, or does it need objects to bounce off of in order to get a reading? In other words, does it work better in heavily congested areas?
Wondering if a step up to a V1 would prove better for off axis detection of K, Ka bands?
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
