I like to use old radar detectors for studying microwave phenomenology. (reflection, refraction, polarization).
I have about four old Fuzzbusters because they are affordable. They are good sources for detectors and horns. But they aren't very sensitive and I'm ready for superheterodyne detectors. After 1980 or so they all used that method. Old Microntas are pretty cheap on the web. But does anyone know of a better radar detector that was particularly sensitive at the X-band? Since I'm only after the sensitivity I don't need V2 or anti-pop or K band either come to think of it. I just want raw 10 GHz sensitivity.
