    Default Testing question w/range finder

    I have seen a few of the laser range finders that have a speed reading. I have seen others mention that they used one of these to test their jammer. Would this work to actually see if the jammer is jamming? I know from what I have read that it will cause the jammer and RD to alarm on laser, but will it actually be jammed by the jammer? If so what kind of error or indication would I get? I am looking at an Osprey range finder with speed reading. Thoughts on ways to test jamming capablity without a police lidar gun?

    I'm willing to bet that those are incredibly easy to jam. It won't give you much of an indication as to how the jammer would work against a modern LIDAR gun but it should at least let you know that the jammer is receiving and transmitting.

    I doubt the Osprey or Bushnell rangefinders will display error codes either. You just won't get a speed reading.
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?

    The osprey will show "LOSE" or just 3 dots, no error codes. I was attaining a cars speed using a Osprey at 800mtrs the other day...

    I have a couple of questions about this Osprey Range finder....I always thought laser has to be aimed at something reflective like a headlight or license plate....but the description says you can aim it at deer and everthing else? So I was wondering to find the feet to a certain thing it doesn't have to be reflective??? Say you want to see how far it is to that light pole 500 feet down the road. You just have to point it at it and it displays the feet?? And if I am correct in saying that I guess in order to get a speed though you have to aim it at a headlight or something reflective?? But you can't be moving though right?
    Thanks for your help....I am thinking about getting one because I could also use one in our construction business provided that there is no minimum distance it can't read.... :?

    yes i also use it in my job to get distances off a non reflective surface... with a reflective surface it allows you to get a further reading than a non reflective surface...

    Say a wall 300 mtrs away will still give me a reading but 500mtrs away it wont unless I shine it on somthing reflective.

    We also use it when Bow shooting for fake animal targets etc...

    I have even shot it at a person walking and it displays a reading...after they go into fits and passout from nerve damage

    Thanks for replying so quickly stalker....I have one more question.
    I got to thinking about whether the blinder or any other jammer would jam the osprey...but I have come to a conclusion that I think that it may not jam the distance or range finder of it but if you were trying to clock your car that had the jammer on it ....it should jam the speed part of it ....I would think. I don't know if you know much about this question or whether you know if its the standard 904mn ....it should say in the manual... :?
