So if I have a rabbit and get hit by the Idaho State Police on 33.8 on a straight stretch, can I plan on them only smelling the closest object? It seems the Stalkers can pick up multiple vehicles, but this seems to be one vehicle at a time.

My original Redline would usually give me 5+ miles warning from Utah Highway Patrol Ka band, I believe they're mostly using 34.7 if memory serves me.
I was running an R1 and DFR7 heading southbound on 89/91 and a Cache County Sheriff running 34.7 was meandering on the surface streets in foothills near where the highway goes into the canyon. Both detectors picked him up near the turn where you go to Nibley and would alert off and on (I’m sure as he faces our direction then away) until we got near him. That was some pretty impressive range, especially considering I was running two detectors.

Another place is Smithfield to Logan. The last time through, I picked up a 34.7 frequency near the Main Theater, lost and acquired the the same frequency into Logan and finally saw a LPD attempting to pull someone over on 10th north in Logan.

I’ve also had monster detections on the road between Cache Junction and Smithfield (though there are more turns and hills) and between Richmond and the Idaho State line and the road just west of Lewiston that goes into Preston. On the latter, the detection must have been 6 miles or more. I caught him just as we turned, and he was on the outskirts of Preston just over the crest of the hill.

Well I can't do 12 miles, but I could do 40. the best I could offer here in Utah would be the highway I-80, the particular stretch between Wendover, NV and Aragonite, UT. There is a 40 mile stretch of flat terrain with no trees or obstructions that runs East to West spanning the valley between the mountain ranges.

Immediately to the North of it is Utah's Bonneville State Park, aka "The Salt Flats", where there is no enforced speed limit on the flats themselves. Bonneville Salt Flats - Wikipedia . That would be an awesome place for one to open up their vehicle.

I'd love to plan a meet up out there in the future with any interested RDF members.
I 80 just out of Wendover is where my land speed record for my auto is. It was still climbing when I let off, so I still don’t know how fast it will go. But I do know it will hit 80. Maybe 80.4.

Wendover UT had a LEO welcoming committee just after the first exit on that stretch just before you get into town. Saw him visiting with a new friend just in town, and when I went out, he was setting up to meet his next buddy. Not sure what he was using as I picked up nothing. But if he aimed a radar out into the desert, I’m sure he’d have been smelled miles away.

ISP does have the ability to use fast mode on their 33.8 radar. It basically displays the fastest vehicle within range of the radar that is not in the current target window (typically the closest most reflective target in range of the radar is in the target window). If the target is the fastest vehicle typically no speed is displayed in the fast window. The drawback to the fast mode they use is there is no audio doppler to correlate to the target and some of the readings can be spurious. Also the other drawback to fast mode is it displays the fastest vehicle the trooper has to figure out which vehicle behind the target is causing the fast speed to be displayed if there is more than one vehicle behind the target. Typically this done if the trooper is estimating the speed of targets or fast mode targets prior to activating the radar.

Good to know. Thank you!
