Hello everyone,


My name is Luke and while I have spent time exploring RDForums many times over the years I now finally have the opportunity to become more involved in this community. I have had a love for spirited driving since I first touched a steering wheel and due to a lot of travel for work I log between 40,000-60,000mi per year. When I was five years old my mother made me start spending an hour each day sitting at our first family PC practicing typing as she knew computers were the future. From this I developed what is, at times, an extremely unhealthy obsession with all things tech. My best friend in HS' dad gave me my first RD when I was 17yrs old. An Escort Passport X50 and I was hooked right then and there. I developed a deeper understanding of electronic principles/theory, radio technology and communications, and the nuts and bolts of our beloved countermeasures while serving our country as an Airfield Systems Technician in the USAF. I worked with ground radio equipment, as well as the VOR/TACAN, and mobile weather systems. Approx. a month ago I decided it was time to retire my Redline and took a cue from my buddy's dad passing it down to another enthusiast in waiting. I'm now running an R3 and I'm ready to pull the trigger on my first Laser Jammer system!!! I look forward to being an active member of this community and I hope that I will have the opportunity to contribute some sort of value to this incredible resource!!!

The R3 is an excellent choice.
