I just received an original 1992 V1 I bought off fleabay. I know it has no real value as a countermeasure, I can still get an upgrade for it, but have a few questions.
The unit will not pick up K band, I went for a drive past my local CVS and it would not alert at all. One thing I noticed though, was there was something loose rattling around inside it.
Obviously, I had to take it apart and see what it was. I found a little white round piece of plastic rolling around in the case.....odd I thought. I was more surprised to find that did not cure the rattle I was coming from inside the antenna. I found another one of these little white pieces of plastic in there too. Looking at everything, it looks like these plastic pieces were originally attached inside the antenna, just below a pair of screws accessible from the top of the antenna.
- So, anyone know where these round plastic pieces came from and what they do? It looks to me like they were attached inside the antenna at the arrow locations.
- What are these screws on the top of the antenna housing for? They are directly above where it appears the plastic pieces were attached
- There are also several Phillips head screws on the circuit board, they appear to be variable resistors, anyone know what for? Tuning possibly?
- Lastly, is it possible to reprogram this unit as with the newer ones, trying to get into programing mode, I get all kinds of light sequences but never the 1, 2, 3, 4, ect.
I attached several pictures so you all can see what I'm talkin' about.
