    Default Could this happen?

    I was running some errands today and went through a small town, the speed limit drops from 40 to 25 and there is always a cop parked in this one spot, well the X50 started picking up K 24.166, then as i passed him i found out that he had his front and rear radar on, but the K alert from the rear was 24.132, so could the same unit put out diff frequencies for each antenna? or is the frequency built into the antenna already? and i know for a fact that there arnt any automattic doors, shoot, half the people in that town prob dont know what an automattic door is .

    Maybe the town was too cheap to get a dual-antennae system and they just ductaped a second radar unit on the rear package shelf

    It's completely possible for the two antennas to be putting out a slightly different frequency. I've seen it happen around here with Ka band.

    Yeah they basically tune them all as close to 24.150 as they can, but they can drift as low as 24.050 and as high as 24.250 and still be considered in spec. Usually two antennas are a number of MHz off of each other just by nature, even if they are close enoguh to display the same freq on the tech/spec display.

    Are there any radars where both the front and rear antennas can transmit at the same time?

    Does that mean the cops get V1-style arrows?
