This event happened to me months ago and I was just thinking about it the other day....and still couldn't figure it out.
Scene: Lousiana interstate, very large grassy flat median with about a football field length between the two roads. Total visibility, no where for a cop to hide.
Cop has someone pulled over on the side---our Ka went off about .5 mile before we crested the hill. Rear of the unit facing us with a rear radar unit on the back.
For whatever reason, I can't remember why, I turned off my Blinder and turned it back on. I'm about 500' from the cop on the side and closing in.
Blinder goes off about five seconds after reengaging. There is NO cops anywhere other than the one on the side. I had three sets of eyes looking out. There was no one...anywhere.
Blast was a single blast within the 30 second testing time before the "all clear" beep.
Is there any remote chance this radar set off the jammer in test mode?
