Hi Guys,

Been a member here for a while but this is my first post about NetRadar. My closest ALP distributor is Radar Detectors & Breathalyzers - Australian Supplier and I am interested in Netradar DSP. Potentially I will add the jammers later. On their site under Radar Detectors they have this listed:


This doesn't mention DSP and only specifies the receiver as ALPriority N Radar Receiver - Anyone know if this means its pre-DSP or otherwise? If not I'll get in touch with them tomorrow.

Thanks

If you can get a look at the bottom of the antenna, there is a sticker with the model number. Should look like this:

There are 2 versions of NetRadar...
Above Post #2 is the DSP model

No pix available of the 1st generation model, but here's the I.D. label info...
FCC ID: 2AHMC-NR
MODEL: NR-ALP
S/N: 6D00XXX

Don't get caught are pretty good at getting back to people. Just flick them an email or give them a call.

I called them and asked the question. Apparently it is a DSP sensor although it was quite a vague answer and it wasn’t said with conviction so I don’t hold much confidence that it will be. Email might work better.

Ask them what the FCC ID is as per the posts above.

It should end in -DSP

I'd say it would be the DSP antenna.

I grabbed a brand new antenna from Josh @ Security Gear a few weeks back.

Non DSP Antennas have not been sold in over a year so I would bet its the current DSP units.

I was also looking at the ALP Priority N Radar package and I agree it does look the same as the NetRadar DSP.

However, I notice on their website it is not included as one of the Undetectable ones. My understanding is the 2017 release model was detectable at 20ft but the revision is not detectable. Can anyone confirm? Including for the Australian model? thanks

There are videos of RD tests against the Spectre RDD's showing the distances at which various RD's can be detected, and the DSP was detectable at about 20' IF it was both vertically and horizontally aligned with the Spectre, which itself is generally mounted on the LEO's windshield. If your DSP is mounted in your grill or back bumper, it's undetectable. If it's on your windshield or rear parcel shelf, things get iffy at close range.

Ok thanks, that makes sense. Though would be good to hear from anyone with first hand experience just for peace of mind!

I assume there is also a way to quickly power down the DSP if you are pulled over?

Check with @beingaware he is in Australia and did Spectre testing on his unit a while back.

Ok thanks, will do. By the way, what is the difference between Spectre Elite and Spectre III?

Spectre Elite is the current model. Spectre III units were the current models around 8-9 years ago.

III appears to be more sensitive in recent testing than Elite (Vortex), but as BRD mentioned, they are not the latest/currently used model.

If your DSP is mounted in your grill or back bumper, it's undetectable. If it's on your windshield or rear parcel shelf, things get iffy at close range.
I might be being a little over paranoid but I watched the Vortex video from 8 Feb 2018 testing the DSP and other remote systems and it is hard to see exactly what height he is holding the Spectre Elite at, and I've heard the Spectre III is actually more sensitive so how does it fair with that?

Also in the video he has mounted the DSP at the bottom of the miata bumper, maybe 5" off the ground where it probably wouldn't be mounted in reality and so it is unrealistic for most cars. I think it is more likely to be at 12" to 20" which is a lot higher. I'd be interested to hear of how stealth it is at these positions although it does seem that even at 20" should be still ok?

At times it even looked like he was holding the Spectre above windscreen height, at least for the Miata but I guess a patrol car is up a lot higher.

So what was the actual vertical height difference when the Spectre and the DSP was detected? I understand it could become an issue with a rear mounted DSP and an LEO pulling up behind. I accept that it would be very unlikely they would pull up in front of you front on.

On the blacktop!
Install front, low centre mass and you'll be fine.
