Kansas running with the pack
I'd like to see if we can get together and do some testing this June or July. The R7 should be in our hands and have most of the bugs worked out by that time and @protias has told me that as long as it's not on July 24-28 he can attend as well. I may have some dates that I can't make it in early june depending on my work schedule and when I have to go to Taiwan or China but I'll see if I can work around that. Basically it would be better for me if we can focus on mid to late June through July. With Protias's arsenel and DarkPenguin's we should be pretty well equipped for radar guns. I believe between us 3 we have:


Falcon HR K band
MPH Bee III currently out of commission
Stalker DSR2X currently out of commission
Decatur Genesis II 35.5
Decatur Genesis I K band
Kustom Golden Eagle 35.5
LTi TruSpeed 20/20
Qty: 2 PL3,
Qty: 2 LRB
Speed Laser
DETC
If in my area: "Farm Truck" Test mule to mount the guns on and nonchalantly park on the side of the road. I mean, the dude is probably hunting or checking his fields. ;)



ETA: Looks like we may need a 33.8 and possibly a 34.7 yet


If we decide to have the meet up in my area again, DarkPenguin and I will scout courses again. I think we have one really good one that would probably be nice to reuse; especially if we want to test penalties for BSM and TSF filtering. We should probably try to find a least one more good one and maybe a backup. I've already got my eye on a couple.

If we decide to have the meet somewhere else then of course course selection will go to those nearest.

It takes a long time to test properly, so it's probably best if we just focus on radar but I'm sure there can be some time to spot test a few jammer setups just for piece of mind. Another option is to make the meet more than one day or to schedule a second day at a different time to dedicate to LJ's. I don't see a lot of benefit in that though unless there are a lot of people with new installations to test or if TMG or ALP come up with some major updates before we schedule the meet.

Let's get something figured out and get a meet going! If anyone has suggestions or wants to tag somone else who may be interested please reply below! I'll update this first post with new information as we decide on it or receive it.

I'm more worried about having enough time to test all the crap we've got. LOL Definitely going to have to spend a good amount of time organizing prior to the meet and focusing our objectives. I'll add a couple other confirmed members to our conversation.

I updated the original post with the date. I'll be going through and updating it with equipment that is confirmed as well.

This is why I've done radar testing days and LIDAR testing days rather than trying to cram everything into 1 day.

We can do radar testing in addition to Spectre testing.

I've been really busy but since this is only about a week away I thought I"d better get on RDF and post here to firm everything up. LOL.

We have a course selected for K band which is a road that runs along side some private property where we will all hang out. We will be doing a couple testing groups in order to get more done while we are there. There will be "coordinators" for each testing group keeping things going. One group is K band (maybe do some Ka as well, up in the air yet) another group is LIDAR. We will do LIDAR on a different course and will be taking groups sporadically for cars that need to be tested and then meet back on the private property in between.

I'll fill in some more later as we firm up the actual testing to be done but the date and location are good to go.

Also, we are planning on grilling out so if each of the people that come to join us would bring a couple brats, dogs, burgers or related dishes along, there will be a grill to cook them on either on site or at a nearby RDFers house.

The exact course location will be given out via PM or text before the event.

Sounds like great fun! I'm jealous of those that can make it.

Alright,
Here are those that said they could make it over the course of this thread:

@bkayrac
@protias
@DrHow
@Tallyho
@GTO_04
@darkpenguin
@CobawLT2010
@madlion
@spinner55
@radarguy1986

For those that are comming for sure and DO NOT have the location, PM me and I will add you to a conversation where I will disseminate the required information. This is for land owner and testing group privacy purposes.

If anyone else will be able to make it and isn't in the list above, no problem, just post that you will be able to come in this thread and follow the red text above.

Thanks!

P.S. This should be fun no matter how the testing goes. Allthough the testing is important and why we form test groups in the first place, just getting together to shoot the **** with those of like mind and hobby is worth it in and of itself. Hopefully the weather is nice and the grilling goes great!

I believe the guys are still going through the results.

I actually ended up leaving early because my friends ended up with an extra ticket to a major rock show.

So it was good seeing everyone, hope no hard feelings about bailing on you guys ;)

Yep we're working on individually writing up different parts of the results at the moment. The testing was quite successful and the results are pretty interesting.

Penguin and I are going to shoot my car a bit more today too to test the 8.05 TMG Algo
Any ETA on the results? You've piqued my interest (even more than it was) with your tease...lol

Hey, you could always download FW 1.50 on your R1 and see how it does on that test course (hint, hint). @bkayrac no problem leaving early. We did some more lidar testing and kill zone measurements after that. It was great seeing everyone again and talking CMs (and Scat Packs).

The results are already mapped and tabulated :cool:
But you could pick on @Tallyho a bit to finish his part of the write up if you get antsy. :p:)

The write up has been "wrote".

Now to finish mapping the testing results to provide the visuals with the written component, video and distance bar graph.
