    So it actually is possible for the RMR to make something display on a radar gun. Watch this video and skip to about 0:52.



    You can see the RMR Phazer make a speed show up on an old MPH gun.

    I tried it with the C495 and found that if you get things lined up just right, it can make speeds show up on variety of different radar guns. Here's a really long and unedited video of me playing around with it one day so you can see what I saw if you like.



    So you could argue that the RMR detectors are doing something. However, making a number show up on a radar gun isn't a big deal. You'll find the same thing happen if you point a radar gun at the AC fan in your car.



    You'll see a speed pop up if you aim the radar gun at a tuning fork which is what cops use to test their radar guns.

    Using the same principles, you'll also find the radar gun picking up the vibrations from a speaker and displaying those vibrations as a speed too.







    So while the RMR detector did seem to do something on radar (something I didn't find to be true whatsoever on laser), being able to make a fake number show up on a radar gun at point blank is completely different than interfering with the radar signal from a radar gun reflecting off of your own moving vehicle and thus "scrambling" the radar gun.

    This is why I say that yes it's technically possible for the detector to display a speed at point blank range, but in no way, shape, or form will it work against a moving vehicle and interfere with a police officer's radar gun when out on the road.

    That just reminds me of super troopers where he used the radar gun to clock how fast he was stroking it .

    So, the moral of the story is that one could install a speaker on the outside of their car which played a frequency out of human hearing range and hopefully blank out a RADAR gun. I don't think I'll be mounting my Peavey speakers on my bumper any time soon.
    It seems that a speaker large enough to send out a sound loud enough to blank out a radar gun would also increase the radar cross section, thereby negating anything you could theoretically gain.

    The rock would at least have multiple surfaces on it sending radar "scrambling" in multiple directions. Who's interested in a Kickstarter? :D
