It's a worthwhile question to wonder why a guy who resorts to attacking RDF members over differences of opinion with sick, sexually perverted language is in charge of security around here?
Is this the new face of RDF?
Even more interesting is what that drop translates to in this compressed scenario. At best we are talking about a 5 second alert (K Filter On being the baseline), assuming a speed of 55mph. That 9% range reduction is equal to a ~20% penalty in terms of the warning time. (You beat me to it)
Is it plenty of warning time though? Let's show the napkin calculations before making any assessments.
First we have to establish the baseline calculation.
Detection Distance = Run [email protected] 1,144 ft
Kill Zone = ? ft
Speed Limit = 45mph
(Detection Distance ) - (Kill Zone Distance) = Advance Warning...
Shine on what matter? Has anything in this thread actually been directly and causally linked to anything?
What testing has been done to confirm it?
There's a lot of talking and nothing to show for it. It's interesting how myths like this get started around here and how others perpetuate them...
I completely understood that as a non-engineer. You phrased it just fine.
As a non-early adopter of the G2 I am grateful to Jon for pointing out that we can look for increased sensitivity and even better performance through the expected sensitivity gains coming from the G2 than we have already...
The part that's really scary is that the R series self-test is not reliable. It's one thing for a detector to go through a malfunction but at least there was the self-test to give you some kind of peace of mind that it was giving you honest feedback. But now that that is out the window there's...
Guess he didn't get the memo before he went on that diatribe.
This post didn't age well:
"But go ahead and make assumptions on things you have no interest in, don’t know, don’t look... or just don’t really get."
Enough with the personal attacks and ad...
You're going to find with V1 threads that they are populated with comments from members who don't use a V1, have no history of using one, won't ever get one and therefore don't have any personal experience to provide assistance with using and enjoying yours, or share your sense of goodwill.
Excellent 34.7 detection
Very good K detection, including low power K band.
Poor X, 35.5
If you don't see X or 35.5 then it's really a great budget detector.
If you do, then you are living on borrowed time.
Thank for the testing @croup . Even when tests have to be re-run it's another way to hone your testing chops. Thankfully we have technical know how from the group and willing testers who mostly are open to feedback, as you have been.
Have you considered using the new RDTest app we saw Vortex...
