Coming home from town today, I got a KA alert ramping up normally for what I am used to from a radar car. Went past a car parked on the side of the road in a small gravel lot. and it quit, no rear arrow, no nothing! Went farther up the road expecting to see the reason for the alert. ( possible instant-on from a sitter) and nothing, so I turned around to see where the leo was sitting but suprised I didn't see him the first time through. I pass the parked car again, and KA from the rear dropping as I get farther away. ( what, an unmarked toyota? No way!) Turned around, went back towards the parked car, and it ramps up on KA again,then I pulled up (he was sitting inside reading a map) and I asked him what brand detector was in his car, he said "how did you know?" I told him about my detector alerting, and I asked if his was a cobra, Gee, guess what, a cobra.
Now, wasn't mine supposed to give me a "J" to let me know it screwed up? and alerted to a bogus signal?
I've read about all you'se guys barking about the V-1 "J"-ing out real threats, and mine won't even "J"-out a bogus threat. what gives?
This guy did ask what I was using, and after I told him the V1, he said he had heard of them but never saw one in person. So we BS'd for a bit about RD's ,and I helped him find his way.
So, who else has had confirmed falses from another RD, and No "J" to let you know it was bogus? It continued to alert at full strength the whole timewe talked (muted of course, 1 in the counter) This is way odd, since I have seen the "J" 3 times before and was able to confirm that no LEO in the area each time.
(In my area of the boonies, it could be a month between seeing cops on the road) Just the way I like it,
