It was stated that Theia would be able to operate normally but that the other detector might be affected.How would a radar detector next to Theia work out?
I’m guessing it shouldn’t false, but that the extra noise might impact sensitivity.
What would Theia do to the other detector?
So when I am driving on the coastline and there are boats offshore with radar will they cause falses?
So then, does the WiFi or cellular signal in some newer cars potentially interfere with our RD's?
Yup it does. I have to listen more carefully.I think this answers your question

After watching the video (thank you for taking the time, very helpful), I cake to a conclusion.... I wondered why (beside couple bucks lower COG) Escort does not add 5gig hertz WiFi to their connected devices and M1 cam. Couple of vehicles I have 5gig option for hotspot. less interference, more channels, faster speeds. Did not think about half harmonic from X band causes RD to deal with 5ghz WiFi. Might be hard for a RD with 5ghz WiFi inside to deal with X band noise? The video of 5ghz signal showed up pretty strong across X band screen was interesting.
Yea, get that. I was suggesting that having a 5ghz radio inside the RD might be another issue to deal with. You saying that does not matter if 5ghz chipset would be inside the RD? Easily filtered out? What impressed me was the width of those signals you showed on the screen. Harmonics went right througu most of X band?I don't think wifi is a problem for any radar detector including Escort's since they have bandpass filters in the front end that block it out. Even in a SDR based detector like the Redline 360C or Theia we would still put bandpass filters in front of the SDR to block unwanted interferers like wifi out.
With the SDR I was using it's a bit different - there are no filters in the front end since they don't know if perhaps you WANT to look at wifi.
I just used wifi as a generic signal example of a broadband, powerful interferer.
Have to say that I didn't fully appreciate what marketing genius your videos are. I watch a Star Trek episode and their sensors don't work because of interference and I think of your video on why you shouldn't run detectors side by side. I read an article about how some subs are nearly undetectible because they run so quiet relative to background noise and I think of your video about SNR. Everyday stuff takes me back to Theia.
I just watched Star Trek Discovery and Picard on CBS All Access...Picard was awesome, Discovery season 1 was good, season 2 a little off but ok.I absolutely love star trek. TSG, Voyager, DS9, TOS, etc. I consider it a major influence on my life
Your sub analogy.... there was a time where Ruskies, obtained stolen French, or Brit, or German records of them testing their underwater platforms with Americans. Which, if gets out, is bad news. Anyway, this was with the boomers (ICBM) US Ohio class boat. Here is what happened close quarters... which because no one gets close, this is extrapolated for finding Ohio class boats (at the time the most quiet) at greater distance. How did they track the “untraceable” boomer? Zooming in on area where the ambient noise was lower than the rest of the sea in the general direction. Bingo, the uber silence exposed the boomer.Have to say that I didn't fully appreciate what marketing genius your videos are.
