My V1 might be going out of tune again. A year ago I sent it out for a tuneup after it didn't detect one of the local popo's K-band speed trailers. It was fine for another year, up until tonight.
On the first trip, the sign was on the other side of the road and facing away from me, and the V1 alerted me like it always does, with about a 1/4 mile range (approx). After passing the sign, the rear antenna held the signal for probably another 1/2 mile. Sounds fine so far, right? Well, later on, on the return trip, I decide to measure the detection distance. As I approached where I recalled the trailer to be, my V1 made a single "brap", and I reset my trip odometer. The V1 then went quiet, and stayed quiet until I was just about on top of the sign, then it suddenly went full scale, and alerted as I passed the sign. The initial alert was about 1/2 mile from the sign, then nothing until I could see the sign.
Any thoughts? Anyone else had this happen?
I hope to make another pass at the sign tonight, to see if it recurs, and to see how my X50 reacts to it as well.
