Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum but a 25 year veteran of the Radar wars. From the original Escort, Whistler Spectrum, and Bel Quantum up to the latest V1 and 9500ix..........I've had them all. I've even ventured deep into the Dark Side having owned numerous Radar Units such as the Kustom Trooper - KR10SP - Golden Eagle (K&Ka), MPH K55 (X) - Python (K), and Stalker Duals (K&Ka). I believe strongly in the motto "Know your Enemy", their weapons of war, and their mode of operation!
I have a degree in Electronics and Communications Technology and aquired my FCC General Radio Telephone License (with Ship Radar Endorsement) way back in 1984. I've been employed for the past 25 years in a High Tech Company in their manufacturing operations.
I live in a Radar Rich environment of Upstate New York where the 34.7 Stalker has become King and, until recently, have used the V1 1.8 3.872 as my defense system. That changed about 1 month ago to the 9500ix and is about to change again to the RedLine.
My purpose in joining is.........well, let's say I finally believe my opinion might just help some junior players understand the industry so that the self proclaimed EXPERTS don't entirely mislead them.
Also, I'm always looking to learn something new! There are some very knowledgeable folks posting on here that enjoy my passion for digging into the details and looking under the hood.
I wish success to all Manufacturers who choose to offer us Radar Enthusiast a quality product. It's like this, without quality competition the industry would quickly become complacent and we would not enjoy the levels of performance and features available to us today. So, while I might (will) throw stones, my intent is to goad them into building thicker windows.......not putting them out of business!
Hail to Escort the Innovator..........and would someone go find Mike V........he's wanted urgently back at the lab! It's been a long time since we've had a quality Title fight for the most sensitive kid on the block.
RedLine vs. V1................coming soon.
