My name is Dustin McCullough. I do alot of traveling as a DoD contractor working with the Marines. I am looking at various radar detectors. However I am getting caught up in the tech of it all. I basic understanding of Passive Infrared (PIR). A limited understanding of RF theory. But I am trying to make the two compute in my head and I am getting stuck at this.
The reason I joined the forum is to get expert technical advice on false positive alerts. I know what sets them off, im just curious as to how and in specifics. my first question is: the false positive occurs at this ?? frequency on ?_band? because an extremely low Passive Infrared (pyroelectric) frequency emition comes from motion sensors frequency (7-11 door) while trying to detect infrared emissions of 8 to 12 micrometers (People or animals...standard PIR devices).
I know... I'm a geek. But the infinate sourse of knowledge (Google) has let me down.
I will probably have more questions but this is bugging me at the moment.
