Wow. That's some good distance. I've had a 1.5 miles detection on my R1. Of course it was a super straight really long road.

I see that kind of detection from my R7 too. It's awesome.
Thanks for the video.

You should be able to do a little better than 2 miles. :)

Not bad for radar bouncing off those buildings. I don't see too much 33.8 like.the other two.

Nice detection. Would be a good spot for testing to see what the near max range of these detectors are!

I've gotten 8 miles plus out of my R1/Redline combo in Tenn. against 34.7 C/O! @VariableWave and I have a long range test site, but it's only 4 miles long and the R1's,R3's, V1's, Redline-O's and even our Whistler CR95 and 97's can reach the end of it! We're looking for a longer site!

I certainly think it would be interesting to see what the longest possible detection would be given all the most favorable circumstances. Weather, terrain, etc.

You better find one hell of a long road for the R's and Redline-O's I can tell you that!

Do we have people out in Nevada or the mid west? Cause man the last time I drove ou there, you have nothing for 30-40 miles at a time. Super flat pains or the desert would be the best testing ground.

I've heard @OpenRoad might have gotten 12 miles or more out of his Redline-O back in the day somewhere out west!

Found this link.

I think the perfect spot would be Interstate 80 that crosses the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah aka Lincoln Highway. If someone lives out there and can test that would be really cool.

Actually, (nerds way of starting a sentence) flat areas would not be ideal according to the standard curvature calculations of a globe.
6 feet of curvature in 3 miles.

What really would help a long range detection is two peaks with nothing in the way.

Double-digit mileage is the norm out west and probably farther with elevation.


I have gotten 6-miles on flat areas with factory sweeps on Ka. I have had about 10 miles in Ohio in the fall time when the air is dry between Columbus and Cincinnati.

"I-8 in California a few weeks ago picking 34.7 like no where in the east. In OH usually see 1-mile Ka with Guard OFF but out west 2-3 miles were the norm. I did pick up what I thought was a 6-miler when I recorded the odometer half way up a mountain a cruiser had someone pulled over with rear facing radar, but the frequency changed so I'm not sure. Very good for factory Ka sweeps."

Depends on many factors, so no 1 alert is the same as another. Yes, a V1 and or R1/3 etc can get longer than this, BUT what was traffic, terrain, environment etc. Also, the higher the frequency, the harder to detect.

I'll remember that the next time I am hopping peak to peak in my car!! That damn trooper on Kilminjaro is killing me!!
