    Default Using door openers to set off detectors

    Since auto door openers set off K and X band alerts, could somebody use one of those in your car to set off alerts on those passing by you as you are driving?

    And why exactly would you want to do this? There is enough crap ou there running on police radar frequencies causing all kinds of flasing. This is something I would not reccommend. I hope I didn't offend you but it just isn't the thing to do.

    No offense taken. Just wondering if it would work.

    yes it would work...but only within 100 mtrs or so...unless there was a trimpot inside to crank up.

    Just take a drone off of the signs with em, that will alert em for a good distance. I really wouldnt do that though.

    Probably no. I dont think someone would go that far to harass people with RD's.
