    Default REAL WORLD RD TESTS

    Team,

    Tech_Geek just gave me an IDEA :idea:

    Who all would like to help plan out and coordinate the biggest RD test field on open road using the resources all of us have?

    Here's the idea:

    We establish a date/location to meet, central to all available. Anyone with laser/radar guns bring them. We map out a course for drivers to take, set up laser at one or two points (HWY/City) and set up radar at separate locations. All participating vehicles will have a driver and asst. to record distance of detection and which band/freq. We all come together at the end of it, compare notes, get an average distance of each hit, go get some pizza, beer, hotwings.

    Video cams are welcome too.

    This would be the most comprehensive test ever done and we would then know what our systems are capable of (BELs, Blinders, Cobras, Escorts, Laser MIMICs, Valentines). You got it, bring it. This won't be to say which is the BEST but what works and how well. And if the end result is a "Best Of All", so be it.

    There will have to be some "Rules".

    1. No drinking and driving.
    2. Do not speed unneccessarily to bring attention to one's self. Don't want local LEOs to actually issue any tickets.
    3. No inhouse fighting about who's is the best. Hands off.
    4. Keep accurate recordings of detections.

    Just to suggest a few.

    The hardest thing to decide on is the location and time.
    Anybody down for this?

    We adminstrators are already planning something like that to take place here in Ohio. We are going to meet up at Cedar Point and am sure we would not mind if more people showed up. Awesome idea

    I hope a lot of others think so and are willing to get onboard.

    Works for me.
    i'm always ready for a road trip.
    If we can get quite a few on board, we'll see where everyone lives, and get a good central spot, especially if it's near someone that can point out good hotels, etc.
    That and a good test location.
