    Default Instant on

    How do you know when your being hit with instant on? I think i've been hit with instant on once. It went right to Ka8 and didnt give me much time to slow down. Does the detector say Instant on or what will it do to notify you?

    Whistlers will typically say "pulse". But it can be easily fooled. Typically a 3 second blast of radar and then nothing is instant on. But some detectors continue alerting and go back down to 0 and then scroll up again. Think a sine wave versus a kind of "pieced" function, with y = 0 or y=1.
