    Default What's gonna happen here?

    We all know that running 2 detectors side by side is not the best thing to do, so can two cops run the same 2 x/k/Ka units side by side or head to head at the same time without getting false readings etc....

    Yes.
    In order for two units to interfere, they would need to be within a number of Hz or KHz of each other. In the real world, this would not happen 99.9999% of the time, as even two of the same unit are usually many MHz off of each other. Even tuning two this close on purpose is nearly impossible.

    A friend and I tried this one time with my MPH K-55 (K band) and his Kustom KR-10.

    No effect on the ability of each to measure each others speed as we approached.

    If I had mine in stand by, I did hear something in the doppler audio when I drove into his beam, but no reading.

    Not a radar expert here but being that the frequencies are pretty close. There would be interference such as what would be called bleed over, mirror effect ect. The radar would eventualy start falsing im sure.

    The frequencies are fairly close for KA and K. At some point the gun would get a false reading or two or may not even get a signal. Having another gun would not jam the gun however. The transmisson would not be the problem, just the receiving frequency shift.

    There have been cases where tickets have been thrown out of court because people have shown proof of electronic interference.

    You can see this for yourself if have a scanner. If you have ever been listining to a specific frequency and then end up hearing another frequency come across that should be there this would be a great example.

    It happens quite often with RCC paging on the 152MHZ band. So im sure with the radar bands being so close this could happen with them.

    Although one unit technically -could- produce a false reading on another, it isn't going to happen 99.999% of the time, for the reasons stated above. Scanners are much different than police radar. But I say if you can argue a case in court for interference, more power to ya :wink:
