    TMGs first real world encounter, SOON TO COME - Texas to Florida - Rebel Radar style!!!

    As the title states, Rebel Radar will heading down to Florida over the coming week and with lots of LIDAR expected we should see the first RWE. Set up is a basic dual TMGs up front, RCM / V1 for radar and Waze as backup. Since the Blackvue is a little much to transfer between vehicles, footage maybe limited to a walmart trashcam.

    Wish us LUCK!

    Dude, just got back. From St Pete down to Naples, its a complete mess with Red Tide. Can't even walk on beach without eyes burning and smelling dead fish. Its overflow from Lake Okeechobee thats causing a kill and also red tide.

    Must be nice to have fur. Gets caught in that instead of on your upholstery.

    To the best of my knowledge Henkel Circle in Winter Park is a place where the local P.D. use UltraLite 20/20 lidar, sometimes even with a second officer shooting I/O Ka 34.7.

    Well so far one laser hit, possibly scatter, no alert from the TMG but both the V1 and Redline went off. I’m adding another dash cam for the drive back to hopefully catch the action.

    Day time hit, verified Leo present and in action.
    Not a false for sure, possibly scatter but that’s rare for the redline.
