    Default Police confusion over radio, radar not serious

    “I knew I was going to get pulled, and I didn’t know why,” she said.

    But as soon as the trooper looked through the window of her minivan, he politely apologized, Johnson said.

    “He said, ‘My equipment indicated that you have a radar detector, but I see you have a satellite radio,’” she said.

    Johnson’s Sirius satellite radio was a Christmas present from her son and his family.

    Satellite radios hit the market about four years ago and are rapidly growing in popularity. Sirius boasts more than 1.1 million customers while its chief competitor, XM, has more than 3 million.

    Apparently, Johnson’s radio set off the trooper’s “radar detector detector,” a device used by police to sniff out illegal radar detectors, Johnson said.

    When the heck did Lynchburg raise the detector fine to $96? The highest fine I knew of to date was $40 + $55 (court or processing fee take your pick)...or maybe they're including the processing fee in that?

    I think I'll buy an XM setup just to show, "oh it's just satellite radio"...

    I love my XM radio. If it will confuse spectre, I say all the better.

    I wonder what type of RDD the trooper had. SpectreI, II, III, VG2? How can we find that out? I've been rolling w/RX65 up at night and down low during the day. Just how sensitive are the RDD systems?

    The cop is lying which is no surprise. I think the cop pulled her over because he saw her amendments (4th one mostly) flying out the window slowly disintegrating behind her on the ground.
