    Default I really miss Roy.

    I miss the Cock and Bull talks, when not busy. Just the other day, I had another stupid question and almost called him. I understand from Escort, daughter is running his business. Does anyone know it all? I looked when he died...Did he have a memorial, etc? Not being a nosy mortician, I just miss him. Got all of my detectors over the years from him and with all due respect to Escort, I am a lil disappointed in them and their only comment, after his death. When he was alive, it seemed, they cared about him. After death, WHO CARES attitude...Maybe it is just me.

    Be well,

    Marty Flagg

    Actually his wife is running the show and they have excellent technical and sales support. While Roy was the outward "face" of the business, the support and operational staff is still very much there.

    With respect to Escort, ALL dealers are in need of love and attention as they have been focusing on Big Box stores of late and not dedicated RD dealers like RadarBusters. It's a sad state of affairs and something that weighed VERY heavily on Roy.

    Good to hear from you. Hope you are managing well in the aftermath of the storm.

    Uniden has taken off like a bottle-rocket. Easily eclipsing other detectors and for good reason. The new Uniden R3 really is sensational.
