    Was it a Miss? Did my RD not do it's job?

    There are many skilled and experienced RD, Radar, Lidar and other folks here on RDF, but a general concept thread might be valuable to some. Radar: Radar travels as a wave. The unit transmits a signal from the LEO ... and waits for a return echo. This calculates speed. (In simple terms)...

    Max, GPS and lockouts????? Let's see if we can end this one.

    For the sake of discussion let's approach it this way .... Max has (3) K band signals that have been "filtered", "locked" what ever term you wish to use to describe it. Let's even make it harder on Max .... they are ALL at 24.150 in freq .... ALL 3 of them ..... you roll up to the same area at...

    1000 foot view of Escort Max ... DSP/DNA

    Thought maybe I'd speculate slightly on the new Escort Max with DSP/DNA.
