This one encounter has me a little worried. I have encounter plenty of instant on hits. This one was constant on ka 34.7
I was on a two way road. North and south traffic. Speed limit 70 mph. My brother and I where taking our extended family out to a meal in another town. We took two cars to accommodate everybody. I left first with my whistler se. my brother left about 30 seconds after I did with my V1 in the other car. Well all was going well until about half way. I thought i noticed a leo sitting on the shoulder as i crested a slight hill. Another hill followed which made are car dip down at first then we started the climb up the slight hill again. As soon as we crested the second hill. We get a ka 34.7 it goes ka 8-9 very fast. It was not instant on. It remained on for about a couple of seconds longer passing the Leo. Not very much longer. The Leo was looking at me real hard. So he was looking for speeders.
I could only hope my brother was going just as slow. We finally pull up to the place where going to eat. Around a min my brother pulls up his car he gets out and the first words out of his mouth was wtf was that. I said no warning. He said I didnt get a warning with the v1 until i was almost ontop of him. He said the detector was competely useless might as well been a cobra. Of course we both laughed. Whole time we where eating we where talking about it among other things. We try to think of different things why we got such a short warning. Coming back the Leo was still patrolling. But had a customer pulled over on the other side. We still got the short warning as before no difference. This time he was out of his patrol car. So we knew for a fact he was not using instant on.
Had I been going fast my brother or I would have probably gotten nailed. I dont feel protected at all know. Except for my laser jammer. I have gotten some rock bottom warning on radar but this was bar none just awful. For a leo looking so hard for a speeder I sure didnt get much warning from it. Neither I nor my brother.
