    Default how fast does a detector sweep

    i was wondering because detectors sweep how long does it take to do this,

    i understand they use the dsp for this but how fast is it scanning and can it be made any faster, and if i can would it help detection.

    because i can see that if they just scan the narrow part of ka it dramaticly affects detection ranges!

    The limitations of the detector are not so much the sweep speed as the delays introduced to cut falsing.
