Even though I login as newjerseybt I live in NE PA. I moved from NJ (the "X" Band State) over 3 years ago but always kept newjerseybt as a login so I can be recognized on other forums.
Even though I lost my 454 Corvette lead foot decades ago, I am finding that many of the cities have become more "revenue conscious" than ever probably due to the poor economy. My city of Honesdale recently started using "Your Speed" signs to harass the locals and "out of towners" and law enforcement was giving out citations for going 5 mph over our posted 25 mph limit. We are an economically depressed town which depends on tourism. I can not help but think we will be hurting our tourism industry with this over-aggressive traffic enforcement. Trapping poor folks into a $300 ticket plus 3 years of higher insurance rates is just another form of government oppression.
I figured I needed to invest in some high tech equipment and a forum such as this is the best place to start. I have been lurking here for about a week and have gotten quite an education from the members already. I figured by signing up I can possibly contribute something from my decades of experience in the radar industry. Unfortunately, it was in aircraft weather radar.
I still have my old Escort radar detector from 1983 which only detects x and K bands so I need to upgrade. I have been thinking of the Bel GX65 as a possible replacement for my antique and some stealth for my license plate.
A "5" over the limit ticket!!! This means war!!!!
