Nothing earth shattering here, but though I would share...

There has been this Stalker K Band speed trailer setup nearby for the last week or so. Its 24.12X, the other day I had this encounter, which demonstrated how the radar would only read the speed of the school bus and not my speed until I was pretty much ontop of the trailer. I fully realize there are more advanced CW Radar units out there that can track up to 4 vehicles - just have never seen this in action before and I though I would share.

(I muted the sound in the video, as the R3 did its job alerting here).
Another aside, I noticed that the Max360 would alert to this sign when it was further than 3-tenths of a mile of so from the source. Once I got closer the 360 would just go silent (not muted/gray). This happened multiple times (and would later function as expected during my drive). I believe this demonstrates that something is going on under the hood of the 360 - good/bad/indifferent.

You need to make the video unlisted instead of private for us to be able to see it.

thanks. Trying to figure that out. Looks like I might have to reupload it as I can’t Figure out how to change it.

Nice. I’ve also seen this happen at speed signs and never put it together that it was size of the vehicle beside me.

You were hidden in the "shadow" (return) of the bus. We were doing some testing here in NC a while ago and i was shooting with my Kustom K band gun and shot a semi that was well over 3/4 mile away from me and one of the other testers was on a motorcycle about 1/4 mile away from me, both heading in the same direction, the return on the semi was so strong i could't read the motorcycle. That bus would look like a friggin wall to a gun.
