Back From SML
Just got back from SML, was fun and played with a bunch of new toys.
I'll post more details, but the big news, we tested a protype of a new detector that is going into production this spring that beat the Spectre II/III
So it appears now that Brand X and Brand Y has beaten the Spectre!!
Cool beans, did you test out any good detectors?
Can't wait for the full story!
Tell me, is the rumor true? Someone other than Valentine with a Radar Locator?
when are the results going to be posted anywhere???
I can't wait for the results!!
Re: Back From SML
I hope the next Spectre (IIII?) won't beat the detector.

Prior to publishing any results, I need to check with the radar detector manufactures to confirm some items. Remember, these are protype units that were tested, not the final production units.
As an example, I just got off the phone with “Brand Y” to discuss their unit beating the Spectre. They were stunned because the unit was not designed to beat the Spectre. They did not design this new unit for the Spectre and they don’t know what the results will be once it does come out regarding this.
To answer one question, there was no detector tested that had a “rear locator” at this test.
So there's an RD out there capable of beating Spectre and the RD maker didn't intentionally make it that way? (hmmmm) I'm waiting to see this....
That is correct
That is correct. Again, this was a protype and as such not FCC type accepted. It is unknown at this point what direction they are going to take..

I think that would be Spectre IV...

So the only real solution is to make it leakproof.
