    Default what the hells going on?

    there has been a massive increase in people reporting their detectors arent working properly, as escorts keep showing ''service required'' and the valentines either report real threats as junk or on k band dont respond at all.

    its all going wrong police are getting wise to detectors and it seems to be that the rd industry is getting a battering from the spectre rdd's and laser manufacturers.

    also i think most people are loosing faith in the radar detectors.

    There's one thing that we can all do to keep ourselves safe: use the detector as backup! Keeping a sharp eye out and really paying attention is your best defense. That will never change!

    Any decent electronics mfg designs and tests their product over the full operational temperature range.

    My concern is that, from what I have heard, these "cheap" (yes, even $400 is cheap for a sweeping microwave receiver) devices don't have a frequency reference and have factory-tuned free running oscillators. This allows for frequency drift over time, temperature, etc.

    what we need is a better modern way of detecting radar other than the heterodyne.

    i dont think there is much research being done on alternative ways of detecting radar.. other than the new stinger dsi's.

    what we need is a stinger or something which uses stringers spectrum analyzer technology which can track multi bogeys and how many on each band, also direction of radar and laser sorces and also detects spectre rdd's . even if its stealth its good to know if you have a police presence near you!
