Although video documentation has been slow (because of limited encounters over a good number of weeks), I have managed to get some and will begin posting them online as part of my upcoming in-depth review. More will be appearing on STH's youtube channel.
Here we examine the relative performance of the Whistler Pro-3600 Remote, Beltronics STi Driver, and Escort Redline radar detectors to CO 34.7Ghz Ka away-facing radar, around multiple curves. This first video is more of a demonstration of compressed sensitivity differences as a consequence of this particular encounter type.
It is important to point out that often times, in around-the-curve encounters, the relative sensitivities of radar detectors can become much less apparent because of the nature of the waveform propagation.
Notice when all three detectors essentially alert at the same time, they do so at or nearly at full-strength. Had this encounter been a long-distance straight and unobstructed approach to CW radar, the higher sensitive Beltronics and Escort, would tend to alert first.
Such encounters often significantly provide less detection range than would otherwise be the case in straight-on line-of-sight type approaches and effectively demonstrates that one does not always benefit from using a very highly sensitive radar detector.
