On the way into work this morning, I noticed that during the first part of my drive I was not picking up the K band door openers I normally do. As I got down the road even thing was as I have seen in the past 2 days, just bought my BEL RX65 this past Saturday, upgraded to the STI yesterday (!).
We ere receiving fairly heavy (quantity) snow flurries at the time. The snow was "dry" since the temp was +14F.
So how much attenuation does snow have on a K band radar/door opener signal.
A little farther down the road X band was working great as I received a threat warning a a local PD pulling out of the driveway and had him for quite a while, while I was following him.
That brings up another question, how directional are the speed radar antennas? I had this guy for about 1/4 mile till he disappeared a head of me.
