I did a search for this and couldnt find anything but I was wondering what the effective range for radar is. We all know that a detector can "detect" radar but at what range can a radar gun be effectively used or is it dependent on band? If it is dependent, can someone give breakdown? I would imagine that if you get a detection from a radar gun, it's still possible that your distance is too far for the gun to get an accurate reading since it scatters a lot more than laser. So, basically is there a set distance that each band can detect something for the gun to work and if so what is that distance for each band? It would be great to know that radar detectors can detect bands while the band cant detect you (at a certain distance).
