One of my favorite haunts to chill out and take in a wide variety of vessels transiting the Cape Cod Canal in SE MA has been relaxing enough but since owning a V1, all that has changed. Seems I have been bitten by the "Valentine Bug" , which compels you (their owners) to not only detect so many weak "trash signals" but then try to identify them by using the direction arrows. I know, any sensitive RD can be picked up and pointed at such signal sources but my V1 does not like to be fondled and instead uses its 2 antennae to tell me what direction the signal is coming from.
So on my last visit, I put the V1 to work and in an instant, it "pointed" to the Canal ops building some several hundred yards away. But it was showing 4 signals in the X band coming from the same location. Well, I know there is a microwave link along the edge of the canal, a rotating radar ant on top of the building and a speed sensor device to monitor vessel speed in the canal (a 10 knot limit). But the fourth signal? Bet its just a motion detector sensor for this "off limits to public" security.
And then there are the small boats and large ships with their on - board radar and various military a/c bathing the V1. So from now on, I turn it off at the Canal so it can rest up for the 40 mile trip back home. Yea, he's my new buddy for life...so versitile and helpful even in non speed radar use
