Well here goes the report. I went out hunting CHP's today and here is what I found out!
First, I have been E free for count 'em 2 whole days!!! Second, I was able to find a volunteering CHP trying to hide and knab people with constant KA. Third, I went up and back again 3 times for a total of 6 passess all together. Here is what I found: Everytime the RX65 alerted seconds before the V1 did. The difference was less than .1 miles. But here is the good news for the V1 fans. The V1 stayed alerted a good .5 miles after the RX65 stopped! I was coming up behind the CHP who was running a rear antennea meaning the front antenna picked it up first. Also, he was parked right as the Highway went around a slight bend (turn). The V1 jumped smack dab to 6 then right to 8 as soon as I was coming into view of the CHP which was about .2 miles from where it was parked on the side. So total warning was .3 up to where he was and about .5 after I passed him.
The RX65 alerted first (by about 2-3 seconds) but as soon as I passed it drop it. On the return direction (rear antenna facing away) Both detectors gave .3 mile warning. Still the RX65 alerted slightly first then the V1, but the V1 stayed on for .2 after I passed only because after you passed you went around the bend. Now given the fact that it was a bend .2 in my opinion is still good. Both detectors were ran independently and not at the same time. Also, on a sad note the CHP did get somebody in a RED CORVETTE!!! :twisted: I know picture perfect
Alright now for grand totals. Coming towards the CHP with the rear ant. ON the Bel gave a .4 mile warning and the V1 gave a .3 mile warning. The RX65 dropped the KA as soon as I passed, the V1 stayed on for .5 past (moving away from the rear ant. ) This was steady for all 3 times in this direction. Coming back (rear ant facing away) the Bel gave a .6 and the V1 gave a .5. Again the Bel dropped as soon as passed and the V1 alerted for .2 miles just as I was going around the curve. Now just to clarify coming back it is a straight highway until the curve. and coming to the bel alerted right as I came around. The V1 alerted no more than .1 miles difference, but stayed on the KA alot longer than the RX65.
I feel that the RX65 is good for alerting to KA first giving its rider more time to get to the PSL. The V1 isn't bad either, but it quickly went from nothing to six LED's just like that then to eight. I am still happy with the V1 just as long as I remain E free I'll be OK. And also NO I WASN'T SPEEDING I WAS GOING 55 which was the PSL!!!
Alright I am trying to see if this video I took works.
