    Default Black and white

    This is not the best question. But why do the radar makers seem to colour K band antennas black and Ka white? i ask this because the other day a undercover had a brown one front and rear mounted :shock: which got me to thinking Hey what the hell have we got here :shock:

    It may have been yellowed from sun exposer, the FHP troopers here, the antennas are very yellowed, almost brown, make you want to question the performance (the units being baked in the sun all the time). Then again I read that Florida requires 6 mo service on radar units!

    The department I worked for had an unmarked cruiser without tinted windows with a black-capped K band antenna in the rear window and the Chief specifically said the black cap was to make it somewhat less obvious...
