Anyone interested in trying to organize some radar testing in the Northeast? My first choice would be the New England area but I'm also willing to travel to NY/NJ and possibly further.

I currently own a Stalker DSR 2X (and Bushnell, if that counts) and the following RD's:
* 8500x50 (heh)
* V1
* Max
* Max360
* Redline EX
* Stinger VIP
* NetRadar analog

I think we often have unique terrain compared to say TX or the mid-west and I'd like to try and measure how that influences different RD's ability to detect a signal. At least in my area I'm constantly dealing with curves, elevation changes, and heavy foliage where I think raw sensitivity and off-axis sensitivity become vital. My area is primarily K/33.8/33.5 too so I'd really like to start testing those frequencies against different RD's.

The usual RDF testers have sounded the call to get more member testing going. Now's your chance to contribute and see if what others are reporting matches what you're seeing. Who's in?

I grew up in CT and now live in northern kentucky.......trust me, NKY is far more challenging than the northeast was in terms of terrain.

Technically every testing group is NKYTG/Cincy since most of the industry products come from here :D

I would also be very interested if it's taking place in New England, as NY/NJ is a little far out. Summer is a crazy time of year, but I could possibly make it work. Happy to contribute my DFR6 or my 8500 x50 Silver

Well I don't know if I'd offer any value - all I have is a V1, my F150, and myself - but if it's in New England and within easy distance of Boston I'd be willing to join in if you guys need people. :thumbup:

I would be interested. Summer is a bit busy for me, but if a date is set and isn't too far I will be there.

I have a Stalker Dual with Ka and K band antennas, also a Decatur Genesis II with a Ka band antenna. I use my Redline OG daily and have a DFR6 that gets used time to time.

Are you guys willing to drive to CT? If so, I would be willing to fly in and bring K and KA band guns plus laser (dragoneye) since I have family in the area I need to visit due to health reasons.

Sorry to hear that Jon.

Where in CT? Assuming I’m in town, I’d definitely take the ride from NY, to meet the legend, as long as you’ll sign my RCM.

If not the RCM, then cover of the Escort v. NoLimits complaint.

@Jon at Radenso sorry for your family hopefully everything is going to be alright.

On my case Ct would be stretching my plot too far, I don't think it would work for me.

So sorry to hear about the family stuff Jon...

I split time between Boston and New Haven, so CT would be ideal for me!

I'm sorry to hear this about your family member.

CT would work for me as well.

I live in Idaho and CT (3 weeks in Idaho and 1 week in CT every month) depending on when this is I will be interested. I have several really crappy old RDs to contribute for you all to laugh at. I also have a tiny black subcompact hyundai accent slathered in 10 year old Veil to shoot at too lol!
 

thanks

for all the fish

Depending on the time and day, I’d be happy to join. Would bring my GT-360.
