as the title suggests the poliscan can be a prick to detect as well jam

we all know the poliscans can be jammed but not all poliscans are set the same so jamming them is a hit and miss ...Most jammer users rely on good detection range against the poliscan to save the ass

WAZE allerted me at the beginning of the vid

the ALP very short warning it was all over before the ALP anounced the type of threat

With no cars to scatter and an angled Lidar from behind really no way for the ALP to spot it - I think GPS gonna become the main defence against poliscan and LD can aid the reporting - without Waze and the ALP you could easily have missed it. Did you have the alp in ‘defence’ mode?

Wow! That's about the nastiest detection I have seen on a Poli! I was wondering if it was an S350 for a second, but your freeze frame proves otherwise.
I do wonder if that would have jammed, I'd dare say not.

this poliscan was set up to detect the front of the vehicle not the rear ..my ALP was in defence mode

pretty normal detection on these just this time i was more prepaired so i had the go pro running
i havent done a hot pass in a while but people do often to ask why my heads are on such heavy angles 35 and 12 degrees

Waze can also fail on the poliscan as these things can be that well hiddin no one knows there there for waze users to report ..i just got lucky on this one as this wasnt hiding

ALP 1.5-1.8 seconds ahead of kill zone. I d say in the given circumstances this was great detection. Extremely nasty setup.

nasty set up yes deffentally not much time as my rear LI allerted soon after

given the circumstances these set ups have also been found in surburban areas and highways /freeways and detection ranges are pretty much on par to this one

these detection ranges are not new i have experianced these short ranges from my G8 and G9 and LI days nothing has changed even using the ALP ... however its alleged that the ALP has a slighter wider angle than the G8 and G9

unfortunattly not many users do not like to share there embarassment moments ..just saying ..

if i remember rightly the S350 was short at detection range when they first came to WA before getting condemned false readings ...i also remember the poliscan can also be tricky up to this day

That's interesting, WA POL must be using a different operational setup to QPS, I usually get pretty decent detection range on Poli's.. But I have seen @winterbrew get some pretty short notice encounters too.
QPS does seem to aim more straight down the road in comparison.

Wow, guys, these stationary lidars on tripods hidden by the road and behind obstacles, suddenly showing up at close distances, are so familiar here too. Nasty, very ugly. Exactly this is the reason why I am in a process to deliver LJ for me but this global situation may slow down these intentions. Good thing that you have excellent CMs to protect you there. Always on alert though.

well at least you have time to consider on your install and type of LJ as these these ugly systems can be tricky to jam

It's been quite some time now that I have been thinking over my options but apparently I am getting more unexpected "bonus" time. Wish I hadn't but it's not up to anyone. If the situation was normal, I would very soon get one of the well-known brand in US but unfortunately these plans of mine might be ruined as things are developing now. Totally agree with you, tough things to JTG. Moreover you have to often face Poliscan over there, as I see it, and they are double the threat. I have to deal with sorta TruSpeed which is another story but it could be also tricky from a close distance, exactly like in your video.

it apears you have your head screwed on not many people realise there is a trade off when installing jammers to jam the poliscan as well having to deal with lidar guns close up +long range the last time i experinced hand held close warning like in the vid was a trucam on a tripod ..however the operators here got to lazy and complained having to reset the unit every so often so its been about 7 or 8 years now since i seen a tru cam on a tripod (hiddin) ..Other hand helds are still used but i dont see them to often but when i do they pull the trigger way to early they basically scan the full vehicle regardless of the angles on aproach they just want a number with very little training or experiance behind them

I guess this is working well for you then. Hand-guns generally are easier for defense having in mind the typically longer shots from distance and the subjective factors, some of that could be laziness or poor training of the officers, as you said. But machines are hardworking, very fast, precise with aiming at exactly the target and never forgive. Because tripod-guns are steadily fixed and aimed always at the lower points of the vehicle, typically at the license plate and that area around, there is no chance for any RD to catch a warning early enough except for some scatters but usually too late. Thank you again for your video showing the nightmare with this Poliscan that you are subjected to. While I keep thinking over, personally would be very curious to see other videos of yours with these things or truspeed if you happen to come across one.

TruCam's are still in fairly heavy use here, they mount them to a patrol car steering wheel, usually taking rear shots, I have been finding the occurrence more and more common recently especially in residential streets.

I still see UL's and PL4's around but not as commonly as they used to be. Usually see hand helds mostly in school zones.
