    Default First day in almost a year

    Over the weekend while detailing my car, I finally reinstalled my V1 after pulling it out for service last summer. I bought some 3M Dual Lock since my suction cups were not doing their job at all. I'm curious how it will fare in our hot AZ summers, but I thought it was not a bad idea.

    Anyway, so today is my first day in about a year running with my V1. First I realized that I need to re-program it and turn off X-band. Then on my way back from lunch, I passed FIVE state troopers. Two sharing one customer, two with their own customers, and 1 waiting for some prey. I only got one signal out of the lot and my V1 decided to "J" it out! GAK, my first false J. And not a peep out of the one waiting, he had good restraint.

    So, I'm back, perhaps I'll be more active again. I need to hardwire this desperately; I hate the obvious coil cord.

    Yeah, I would think about sending it in for a tune-up.

    Make sure to keep some cool AC on it and keep it out of the sun and you should / will be ok

    Extreme heat = unhappy V1
