First-time countermeasure user here. I just got my first radar detector (STIR+) installed last week, along with a LI quad. Post
install, I began reading some accounts of interference due to mounting the STIR + behind a grill.
Since I don't have any other detector experience, I have nothing to compare the performance of my detector with. I haven't even encountered
a radar speed trap yet, though I have detected a couple of automatic doors and once speed measuring sign.
Anyway, I was hoping someone could give me an opinion on my install. Should I move the receiver? The two other obvious alternatives are to try and move the receiver up into the bumper (would be mounted inside), or simply bring the unit forward several inches and have it protrude through the lower grill by a couple mm (would have to cut it obviously).
Just a note, the grill is plastic and the receiver has a ~3-4 inch gap between it and the grill.
Sorry for the low quality of pictures, hopefully they are clear enough.2013-01-15 23.58.07.jpg2013-01-15 23.58.39.jpg2013-01-15 23.58.51.jpg2013-01-15 23.59.29.jpg
