    Radar R7 Save: 35.5 I/O Ambush Up the Wazoo

    Tooling along at PSL +15 when I get a blip of 35.5 so start covering the brake pedal. As soon as I start getting a stronger signal, it's anchors away and lucky that! If I would have waited any longer, it's possible I would have been on the side of the road trying to talk my way out of...

    R7 Set to "Quiet as a Mouse" on BSMs?

    I'm just curious if anyone is still having a lot of problems with BSM after setting up their R7's with K-Block and reducing sensitivity. The reason I'm curious is that I have been doing some testing for another member here with a similar car who was worried about the R7 falsing to our car's...

    Semi Important GovDeals Lot of 2 Raptor RP-1 Units Will Ship. Virginia Military Inistitute

    Just noticed these while stalking the GovDeals website today. Interesting in that they will ship (see Q and A section), which is a bit rare. I'd like to own one myself but am a bit tapped at the moment. They also have...

    Radar R7 Finds a Sly Piggy 35.5

    I had just gotten myself some new shoes for my SS and was on my way back through Arlington, a small town in Columbia County WI. This isn't my usual territory and as I was getting close to my turn, I caught a blip of 35.5 so I started to proceed carefully. The initial sniff is way off axis and...

    R Series Fight For My Windshield R1 vs R3 vs R7 34.7 35.5 and K Band

    So I've been getting really antsy to get some testing done and finally had some time yesterday. First let me get one disclaimer out of the way. This was a course of convienence as I was by myself and didn't have a lot of options, thus, it was a bit terrain limited in Direction 1 which is going...

    Radar R7 Points to the Real Slim Shady. C/O 35.5

    I just received my R7 today and I'm already putting it to good use! I was on my way home when a county sheriff pulls in behind me. Pretty soon the R7 starts tweeting about 35.5 but the arrow is pointing forward. About 1-1/4 miles up sits a snake in the grass and that grass was tall enough...

    Other Scanner Could Have Saved Her............ And Bonus 35.5

    ..............if she wouldn't have been so busy texting and driving. I hear a dispatch report about a reckless driver on a highway that I will be crossing later on my drive. I didn't think much of it at the time as people call other people in a LOT. About 10 minutes later as I approach the...

    Rear Fender Install of NMO Mount

    After having such good reception in my truck with the mag base mount and Larsen antenna, I have become spoiled and had to do something for my car. The hand held antenna just wasn't cutting it. I wanted to do a 90 degree fender style mount instead of drilling a 3/4" hole in my car but I didn't...

    How To Fix VIOFO A119 Lens Vibration

    Explained with only one picture! In case the picture isn't enough....get a tag board backer from some junk you bought and slice a corner off of it. Shove the piece you just cut in between the lens and the socket. Done. No more vibration. ;)

    How To Fix a RadarMount (And Possibly Others) Clip So It Won't Ruin Your R1/R3

    I was working on rewiring my "Farm Truck" today and decided I should fire up the SS too and fix my RadarMount so it wouldn't screw up the clip on my R3 or R1 anymore. I figured that it couldn't be rocket surgery or anything so I got one of my genuine Uniden clips and compared them. I found...

    R7 "Heartbeat" Indicator Request

    From what I understand given the information that the beta testers have released, Uniden has axed the heartbeat indicator on the R7. @Brainstorm69 @hiddencam @Jag42 @Vortex @BestRadarDetectors maybe you guys can confirm. I'd like to request that something similar be added back into the R7...

    Lidar What Happened Here? Laser False/Scatter/Sneaky SOB?

    Points for being real: My R3, unlike some out there, has NEVER falsed on laser. Not once. There were like 4 or 5 Waze pins in the area. I did a run back through and confirmed WSP presence. Points against: ALP's never went off. This is probably the biggest point in favor of a false. I'd...

    Musings on BSM filtering

    I've been thinking about BSM filtering lately and how it and traffic sensor rejection are a double edged sword. Without enough filtering, our detectors become annoying and we either silence them or ignore them on K band but like the boy who cried wolf, when the real wolf hits us with K band, we...

    3D Printed Mount For Uniden BCD436hp

    After playing with a couple readily available options, I decided to design and print a mount for my scanner. I wanted something simple but also more sturdy than most of what I've seen. I whipped up this slide-in mount that I designed to latch into the screw counter bores on the back of the...

    My "Farm Truck" Gets ALPs

    My TMG equipped SS is put up for the winter and I started to feel pretty naked driving my truck around without LIDAR protection so I was keeping an eye out, possibly for another TMG system, when I saw @gapi 's posting in the classifieds for a brand new dual ALP with HiFi. I thought to myself it...
