While that's true- it is possible to come close to a level of truth, the Techie types here do not have access to a microwave Lab,an Anechoic chamber or a highend Spectrum Analyzer, there are some sharp backyard testers w/ the talent to conduct real world testing schemes "in the field" to explore dynamic range & sensitivity detection results via close proximity of BSM emitters on distant weak signal down-range Police radar signals.Unfortunately, until testers build a microwave lab you do not have the tools to get to the level of truth necessary. Until I posted, nobody knew what MRCT, MRCD, Redflex, BSMs, or Bushnell even looked like. Everyone thought that traffic drones were all CW. Etc, etc, etc.
For fifteen years, manufacturers told you that BSMs were inevitable because they used K band "just like police radar." Testers had zero way to know that this was a lie.
It just depends on what you care about. The truth or lack of conflict.
For myself, I prefer to see the REAL numbers only your Lab equipment can provide relating to Dynamic Range (in DB) & Noise Floor (in -dBm) sensitivity.
