# Thread: bogeys didnt work from me today

1. ## bogeys didnt work from me today

I encounter two cops, 1 local and 1 who was undercover, and i am 100% sure both of them where running radar. But v1 only said 1 bogey, the intersting part was as i was wating for the light the under cover cop was comming towars me and the other local cop was behind me like 5-6 cars away but the v1 only said 1 bogey. However the arrows kept switcing from front to rear alot. anybody know why

As far as I know, the only input that the V1 uses to determine the bogey count is frequency. So, if the frequency of the two radar sources are too close together, the V1 has no way of distinguishing them from each other and will report only one bogey.

I don't think I'd hang on that 100 percent figure. Why would the one stopped at a red light have his radar on? I'm betting he didn't, and you were getting reflections to trigger both arrows.

How can you be 'sure' that they were both running radar?(Just curious).

I really have to think, that unless your V1 was falling out of tune, if there are two sources present, the V1 is giving you a '2' on the bogey count. I have had the opposite problem (ghosting), where I only can see two possible sources of radar, yet the BC shows 3 or even 4.

Like DJRams said, if they are soooo close together, its possible, however extremely unlikely, that the V1 will only show one bogey. I would like to see a figure on how 'close' the units would have to be, but the odds are slim.

Id say 1 wasn't running radar, or your V1 is slipping out of tune, more-so the prior rather then latter...

+1 on there only being one cop gunning. More than likely you were encountering some reflections. It will do that from time to time. No biggie. Sometimes I get side arrows for like 6 or 7 seconds after I pass the source. It usually happens to me when I'm passing an area with trees or buildings close by. Anyhow, you were probably picking up radar reflections.

The radar signal was from the LEO behind you and was bouncing off the cars that were in front ,beside and behind you. This is why the V1 showed arrows front,side, and behind. It was confused by all the reflections.

How do you know the car was an under cover? Not very undercover if you can spot him so easily. Any chance that there was only 1 cop there, and he was the only one shooting real radar?

when i mean undercover i mean those nark cars, the ford crown vicx, and plus he had a attenha in the back, and he was in uniform.

when i pass the crown vic, it went to full ka and locked, and then passed him, the arrows went back, then kept there untill the local came up behind me and the rear ka locked. so i am pretty sure they where both running constant on ka band 35.5

Maybe it was locked on to the bogey you passed and stayed pegged for a minute. How much further did you drive before it started dropping? was the LEO still behind you?
