Quick question for all of you: How does a detector, such as the X50, detect multiple threats? Here's why I ask:
There is a CVS pharmacy that I pass daily that always gives me a strong K signal (I detect it about 3/10 mile away). This pharmacy is in the center of Watertown and at a major intersection (three-way intersection). Most of the time when I'm at a red light at this intersection, there will be a cop in the general vicinity with his moving radar on in his car (as they ALWAYS do in Watertown). However, I've found that if the cop running radar is on the road parallel to the pharmacy I will only get one signal instead of two.
For instance, the other day, I'm rounding the corner, coming to the center of town on the road parallel to the pharmacy. As I round it, BAM, I get a K signal (1/9). 'Wow," I think, this is way too early to be the pharmacy...but, maybe I'm getting a good signal because it's late, there's noone on the road, and there's nothing to obstruct the radars path. However, it immediately starts to get stronger until it's on full alert. Now I know there's a cop approaching me. As I pass the cop, I'm in an area where I would normally get a good signal (2/9 or 3/9) from the pharmacy, but still, only one threat is shown. As the cop passes and gets further away from me, his signal dies out but the signal from the pharmacy sort of blends into the diminishing signal of the cop. In other words, the signal never dies it just gets weaker until I'm only picking up the pharmacy. Never did I get more than one threat on my Expert Meter. This has happened to me other times at this location and I'm wondering why.
Anybody know why?
