OMW into work this morning I got again, another full blast Ka alert that trickled down to nothing and went quiet. Many have said this is typical I/O behavior, now while that is true I am having a hard time wrapping my head around that thought.
Heading south on Route 3 I received the full Ka alert and slowed down to let the uber cool guy in the VW with yellow headlights fly by me. I'd say 1/4 of a mile or less I saw a trooper heading north which was very close to the median turn around where they sometimes hang out.
My question is now, with I/O, if it's used and was hypothetically pointed in my direction (north, as I was going south), it hits the intended target car and the rest of the waves bounce around, wouldn't I receive a weaker signal instead of full blast, or is this the charachteristic of how I/O works, no matter the distance, if it's picked up, it's immediately ramped up to full blast?
