Hi, all.
The frequency never changed, and the arrow was solid rear all the time. Got full strength after some time, which does not happen with BSM falsing (especially when moving). All BSM alerts I have had so far were brief and with minimal signal level, and definitely vary in the frequency and arrow direction as it keeps alerting. In the front cam video, the initial alert is at 0:13, then it got muted as I was under 40 MPH (Q-Ride) for several seconds, but was persistent for the whole time and stayed dead on 24.125. You cannot hear the initial alert on the rear cam video, due to the music (which I apologize for - did not know it sounds so bad when the cam is so close to the speakers back there). Was not able to identify a legit source. Could it have been a LEO in the far distance behind?

Interesting. I have never gotten an alert from a semi with the R7.
i have k narrow on, and the k block, i passed a grondyke truck and got a mile or so alert. just judging by site. now there were other cars in the area, but im thinking it was the semi due to past encounters with r3, and ramp up

24.125 usually shows a Mazda CX-5.
True. Although, I could not identify any of those on the video. In my experience so far, every time I got false alert from such Mazdas was either 24.123 or 24.124. However, I understand the RDs may vary when displaying the frequency and they are not 100% precise. So indeed, it could have been anything, I just thought it was strange that it held full signal for awhile, especially that I was moving. Not the typical "overdriving" by a source very close to you...

I think it easily could have been a LEO behind you what with the hill and the length/strength of detection.

Your rear video drew my attention to the hill behind you to the north. This is the Google Street View from under the power lines where your point of first detection was.

0.7 miles - Approx length of detection.

1.7 miles - Approx top of the hill to last detection

Elevation change for the 1.7 miles. (Kentling is 1378ft and 1568 Glossip is 1299ft)

@Delaney,
Thank you for this analysis and input! It does make sense and quite possible. I looked at the rear cam video many times and also thought about this theory. Great info.
