Thread: Instant On?

    Default Instant On?

    Two times on my way home from work this week I have gotten K band hits from a local sherriff probably less then 50 feet away. There have been cars in front of me both times. The detector lights up to maybe 3 bars then shuts off within a few seconds. Any thoughts?

    Handheld radar sitting on the seat of the patrol car and left on. I have seen that happen. Then the signal would get much stronger as the cop picked up the radar gun and aimed it at another car.

    If that were a simple instant on encounter you should have had a stronger warning than that.
