It is great news that new laser activators have come out (Guys of Lidar and JTW sell them). Even though when i will shoot my detector i will only know that 904 nm wave is being emitted, not if anything is jammed by a laser jammer.
I am going to start to experiment with the laser activator (it is like a gun almost , minus the readings and the range). I think it would be possible to build a small laser detector with a small speaker that can alert to the 904nm waves.
Here is the beauty! Not all of us can afford a V1 (which is amazing as a radar detector, but it really shines as a lidar detector). If small laser detectos can be made... perhaps each of the size of an altoids box, we can put them near the license plate (just like blinder) and not have to worry about "detecting" lidar. On the jamming part, we are screwed.
Jammers are also expensive... this might be a nice alternative for some of us cheap people out there.
I just hope more people start experimenting with this idea, and we will be able to build a "good" laser detector and place the thing anywhere we want on the car. This way, we can just let the radar detectors do their job , high up on the windshield (away from the sun and overheating) just detecting radar waves.
If anybody already has ideas about the diodes or circuit diagrams to use, post them here.
