    Default Airplanes Have LASER! ? !

    My laser always goes off near an airport, especially near the "golf ball" tower.

    Why is this? I got so used to listening to LASER that sometimes I actually IGNORE the sound on the highway when I get hit. This is probably why I got my ticket.

    Thus, I'm getting an RX65 just for the new tones and my Solo S2 is a little shaky.

    Any one know why the airport has lasers? Same voltage too?!

    Although wierd the airport radar tower is most likely the cause. I think the radar tower sends out a diffrent frequency of radar and your detector thinks its laser. I think one of the Guys Of Lidar hav a video of the same thing happening.

    Yeah Outrun has video of the RX65 going crazy around the airport. This was one of Outrun's earlier videos.

    Airports use laser to check visibility and ceilings.

    Default Airports

    From my understanding, they use (and weather reporting stations) windshire (sp??) monitors that use laser
