Very interesting, @Marty K . Thanks for experimenting and sharing with the forum!

Just an FYI, and I'm not nit-picking, but stationary K-band falses from stationary sources like automatic door openers aren't considered "BSM". "BSM" is short for Blind Spot Monitoring. Essentially the systems in cars to prevent people from making lane-changes into occupied travel lanes.

Automatic door openers use what is essentially miniature police K-band radar emitters and can't be filtered out like BSM systems. Under most circumstances, you'll have to lock them out using the GPS function of your radar detector, or narrow your K-band detection range (i.e. "K-band Narrow/Wide") to filter them out.

That being said, great job!
Point taken, you are correct. I neglected to distinguish that in my post. Just wanted to add that type of K band false and its frequencies.

Interesting encounter. Do you remember if only 1 frequency showed up, or was it 2? @UnidenSupport another vote for K band bogey tones.

Is this a question to the OP?
Yes. Just wondering if that LEO was running one or two antennas. If it was 1 frequency the whole time that would be proof of one antenna. And while it appears at first look to be low strength K band front antenna, I'm wondering if anybody else wondered a little bit about that ramp and what it really is telling us. If it was 2 frequencies, then that settles that; it was low-powered K band front and rear.

Good point. @mattguy10, do you recall this detail?

My apologies. Saw your post last night @hiddencam and thought it was directed at @Marty K.

To answer your question, TBH I didn’t take notice if it was more than one frequency. I noticed that the detection range wasn’t the best, but I just chalked that up to being from the slight incline I was on and the LEO being on the other side, as well as them having just come around a slight bend from their end. When the R7 went full tilt was pretty much right when I crested the incline. Normally I know better then to haul a** up any sort of incline especially with no rabbit, but was in a rush that day. Almost cost me especially if it had been I/O.
