    Default follow up question about bogey counter and k-band.vid inside

    So far I'm really happy with the performance of my V1. 1 possible ka save and 1 known k save so far and I just got the thing. The last time I got blasted by k band my bogey counter read 1, the signal got very strong and the counter went to 2 but I only passed one LEO. This had me thinking.

    Last week I noticed a new k band source while taking my usual back roads to work but it was down another street I don't usually go down. Today I got my video camera and looked for it. Now I've never been down this street before with my V1 so I can't comment on other k band sources. They must have recently turned it back on because it just started alerting me to it.

    Anyway, as I got closer to the source, which turns out to be a speed sign, my bogey counter changes to 2 and then to 3. I need to know if this is normal, or ghosting maybe, not normal behavior. The speed sign seems to be really strong though. Skip to the 1 min part in the video. You might want to turn your speakers down, LOL, but listen for the bogey counter.

    Its normal.. Mostly ghosting, but the speed signs tend to drift off bands, so it might of been emitting 2 different types of K with one of the leaking off bands not being as strong hence the 3 instead of 4. In my area a few of the speed signs are stronger than others and one is so strong I can pick it up for 3+ miles and as I get into the last mile it always ghosts like mad and about 1/2 mile out form the sign I have the 2 ghosting K's and sometimes it will start to alert a weak KA (since it flashes K as the stronger threat)
