    Default Is it time to sell your BELSCORT?

    This is from (www.radar.co.nz/aust/genrep10.html)

    This is a very interesting?

    July 2005.
    The Ka KRISIS confirmed on US web sites, BEL and ESCORT blind to New Fast QLD Ka radar.
    It did not take long for Escort and BEL detector owners begin to associate NIL Ka response with the internal detector design glitch.

    July 2005.
    The Ka KRISIS highlights BEL and ESCORT serious Achilles heel.
    A QLD web site called it the "Ka Krisis" And WOW, it certainly is. The AU web site, (NOT radar.co.nz) inadvertently (or was it ?) made public a software problem that is present in "ALL" imported new and old BEL, BEL PRO, XR, Vector and Escort X50 superwide band, Ka Band radar detectors that have been sold.
    The problem has the potential to render these detectors useless against any new QLD Ka radar units now in use.
    The BEL engineers, to reduce false alarms, which are the bane of all digital, Superwide, all band, Ka radar detectors BEL and ESCORT, developed software that turns off all Ka radar detection, indefinitely ( that's NO detection of any Ka radar) when the detector is subjected to Radio Frequency of around 11.600 Ghz RFI or its harmonics, it shuts down Ka detection. And this is on top of horrific Ka Digital Delay problems, also present in all these superwideband Ka models.

    This RFI may come from a Telecom tower, Radio transmitter, CD payer , Car stereo, Vehicle ECU. CB radio, UHF radio, or RADAR DRONE/Zapper in other vehicles.
    All Ka detection of these Superwide Ka detection units will remain turned off/shut down, for as long as the key RFI is present.

    The BEL and ESCORT Ka detection (All Ka) could be off for most of the time the detector is in use, or worse,
    may be disabled just prior to being zapped by a new Ka band speed radar unit, Ka Camera unit. (WA)

    A bigger problem is. The BEL or Escort all band detector does no tell or indicate to the user, that "all" Ka band detection is turned OFF. ???
    And Zap your gone, no beep no warning.!!
    Older style and new AU made ANALOGUE K and Ka radar detectors did not and do not have this problem. This is why analogue detectors were so popular in New Zealand where Ka radar has operated for years.
    The more broad ramifications are still to come.

    July 2005.
    Queensland Police "given" trump card in radar detector war by Queensland web site.
    Queensland Police have gained access to, or been given to be correct, technical details on a device that will turn off/disable completely, the "Ka" radar detection ability of every BEL and Escort radar detector in Queensland.
    The information was obtained free, from a detector importers web site, currently operating in QLD.
    The web site owner was attempting to show how smart he was, by publishing technical data about radar detectors.
    The self appointed radar whiz, has now shot a large hole in his own foot, and in both feet of every other BEL radar detector owner.
    If you own a BEL detector you should let him know how you now feel. A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

    Watch this space!
    US invites OZ GURU-Z to Speed Labs Inc Radar tests in Texas.
    Watch for some very HOT news from Speed Labs in the next couple of weeks. By invitation only, Radar Team Australia has arrived in Texas! And it's over 40 degrees C. Some of that heat may be felt in OZ. The BS on some OZ web sites may soon come to an end!

    There's a lot of over exaggeration going on...

    The technical details of such systems to suppress Ka falses are nothing new, and have never been a big secret, so whoever posted the technical details certainly didn't leak any secret information. This system in various forms is detailed in public patent documents stating back about 10 years ago, and is used by all of the top models made today.

    I don't know what their agenda is, it is difficult to tell with the Australian radat detector business, which is "interesting" to say the least.

    they are trying to compete with escort, and valentine the true detector manufacturers.....

    i think there are more usa detector exaggerations as you call it jim on aus sites,

    and by the looks of things far too much '' storys'' about detector faults..

    i wonder if its to get escort users to panic?

    I'd say that's a very fair summary.

    Seems to be what happens when things are made illegal which shouldn't be.

    Great find Bogey. Trawled that site and found some startling coincidences.

    This outfit shares lots with Roy Zegers the stealth king.


    Zegers has both SMS RDD's (Spectre and Stalcar) in his possession.

    That site has images of Spectre and Stalcar RDD's that are copyrighted. Points to "possession"?


    Zegers has some sort of crusade running against Ka-band radar.

    That site is even tougher on a brand of Ka radar, the Decatur Genesis.


    Zegers site offers a stealth Valentine.
    The other site offers a stealth Valentine too.

    <competitor links removed - jimbonzzz>

    Jim, Sethy - you got an angle on this? Two guys working on stealthing the Valentine One while Mike plays Rip Van Winkle?

    I kinda get the point that's been made on the forum about some Australian RD engineers being in back of the Spectre and Stalcar RDD's. Kooky for sure. You go figure?????
