As a relative newcomer I have found these install threads highly informative. I used any applicable ones for my own install.
What troubles me somewhat though is that anyone can stroll in here and see the work. Even people in government costumes.
If I was on the dark side I would see this as a cheat sheet on what to look for.

I know of at least one other thread on RDF that requires at least intermediate status to read. It seems to me these install threads should
have that same sort of barrier.

FWIW

I get where you're at. But for the 1% of the population who are using parking sensors, I wouldn't worry much. I mean, everything is out there on the internet and youtube. Just finding it is the key

.000000000000000001% would be closer to accurate. More importantly....FUDD doesnt need inside info. Hell C/O Ka band will keep him busy all day and all night writing tickets.

ditto that^

Although we should never be complacent because the LEOs may innovate slowly they don't ever stop. But right now there's only a couple of people on the law enforcement side that actively market jammer spotting. And one of those posted an article about it on Officer.com that didn't get a single comment in two years. I imagine the views didn't even crack double digits. It's just not a sexy topic, plus some of the more savvy cops that know about them see them as compliance tools.

Fritter the Austin moto PD I met up with 10 years ago was fine being jammed as long as you adjusted your speed. He didn't even care if you killed the jammers or not he just wanted to see compliance to the posted limit. If he didn't get that he would make the stop anyway and just instruct the driver to slow down.

All good points. With uTube I guess the cat is already out of the bag.

Cop's can get someone that just passed them and didn't even slow down while he's sitting in the median. Why would they care about spotting a RD or parking sensor?

I was thinking more of the post stop inspection.

They're parking sensors and demonstrable as such. Even if they want to blow it up in an illegal state like mine it's the same ticket I get for not having the KC lights covered on my jeep. A buck twenty and I'm done.

I got pulled over for "loud exhaust" the other day, which resulted in a fix-it ticket.

I'm in an illegal jammer state, with no-front plate in a front plate state, and I had my R1 clearly visible on my BlendMount. He didn't take a second look at the front of my car.

The LEO only wrote me up for my exhaust, which I will concede, is a little loud
:roflcopter:

That's why we have the RDF Media Server up and running! www.rdforum.org: Media | Radar Detector & Laser Jammer Forum People should start taking advantage of it more, we have tons of space (by tons I mean LITERAL TONS, too many TBs) and tons of server resources!

But yeah, RDF has existed since April 2011, and trust me when I say that your concerns have been debated for days upon days upon days. An extreme amount of work went into the way we operate RDF in terms of security (among other things, of course) and the policies that are currently implemented are based on the results of these debates and experience.

Of course, we're glad to hear questions/concerns raised but believe us when we say that the system that currently exists here in terms of security is very very well though-out.
