    Default Tuning fork to "jam" radar?

    Couldn't a person have a radar tuning fork on the front of their car, this way it only shows they're doing 30 or whatever the forks show?

    What makes a tuning fork give a reading? Couldn't a big one be made if a small one won't work?

    I believe you have to give it a wack first, to get the vibration, I beleieve that is how it is used. Also I believe that the tuning fork has to be next to the unit, and not 100 plus feet away. Again this is from the little I know, interested to see how correct I am or not.

    Yeah it only makes a "small" reflection. Your car would overpower it extremely easily. However, I know you can do the same thing with speakers. What if I put speakers with a dia of let's say four feet on the front of the car, and when the detector detects K it puts out a signal on K that has the speed limit posted on it.

    Would make a ****load of noise

    A cop was telling me one time how he would bank his radar beam off of something (I think a road sign) and get a reading off of cars. What about using whatever they can bank their gun off of?

    In that example, he wasn't actually shooting the car, he was shooting a stationary object.

    you could use Jimbozzz tuning software and pump it out of very loud speakers...would work but geez...imagine the looks from bystanders on the side of the road.

    Most towns around here have noise ordinances too.
