    Default Dash Mount Jammer Feasible?

    Ive been thinking a lot lately about a dash-mounted jammer that would continuously send out a laser signal. Would that work and actually jam the guns?

    If this would work Blinder, Escort, Bel, lidatek, target, Antilaser, and Laser Mimic would have dash mounted models because it's easier to just stick something on your dash. Remember, you can't always detect laser with a radar detector. That is because your radar detector is too high up from the target area of your license plate.

    Dash mounted laser jammer can be done but it would probably cost twice as much as the usual laser jammer. The reception would have to be boosted like 10x, than the noise would start popping off false alerts so you would have to add more filters to receiver. The jamming source would also have to be 10x more powerful (laser d. probably). Big lenses should be emplaced in front of receiver and transmitter. All that adds to retail price

    OK, how about getting a couple of laser gun diodes and mounting them inside the grill? Could they operate full time?

    Your not going to jam anything with a IR LED running full time. Each manufacture uses different blinking speed; and you would have to match the blinking speed. RMR seem to use LED's running full time, but they don't jam anything.

    There is a show on TV (discovery channel) called Mythbusters. They made over 100 IR led's shine on a lidar gun, and it didn't jam. The LED's must blink in order to jam!

    I meant the laser gun diodes, not the LEDs, but good info nonetheless. I havent seen that episode, would be interesting.

    The RMR scrambler units do have a permanent-on IR bulb...

    You must have a receiver in a device to be a succesfull jammer. The so called stupid jammers without receivers actualy work on some lasers like the LaserPatrol but they bring on the JAMMED error, and that i s not very good in Europe! Laser diodes can't be turned on all the time, they need the time to chill so you dont have coverage for that time that they are cooling off and that is just the time when the lidars measures you and your jammer fails in jamming.

    Ok, thanks for the clarification. It sucks when jammers are prohibited and you need both an undetectable and completely concealable jammer...
