Wondering if they use kevlar as shell to hide rf leakage if that would work ? Should ask uniden @bestradardect.Buried in the long testing thread I mentioned I did a brief test with the Spectre Elite and I was detecting the R7 at around 100ft in both the rear and front of the target vehicle with the R7 on the windshield with Spectre Elite at full sensitivity.
We plan to test some other Spectre Models and see if there was a difference with some versions over the others. I did mention my results to engineering and they are expecting the full retail units to perform better since some changes were done to the horn to improve shielding after the original pilot samples we are using were created. They do expect to have more leakage on the R7 then there is with the R1 & R3 due it having a larger horn. I might need to take it apart to see how larger it is over the R1 & R3 because now I am real curious.
We of course will test the retail units when we receive them which at the earliest would be between April 5th but I always plan for some customs delays so I still say between 4/5 to 4/15 to be safe. I just want everyone to be aware that while they still have less leakage than its dual antenna competitors (360, 360c, V1) it does have leakage that some in banned areas need to be aware of.
Unless uniden uses alluniunm foil inside to stop rfI doubt they will be able to get the R7 undetectable within 20'
We will re-test the final released units but even the R3 can be detected at that distance on a direct view but the benefit on the R3 is that its only detected in one direction and police are not driving head on to towards you. R7 adds rear leakage as well having dual antennas so having an officer pull up behind you will set off a RDD detection.
