I want to remind the vertical mount RD mate to be careful.
After seeing the S320 photos, Im sure that redflex speed camera used Doppler phased array radar that can monitor two lanes or more. In order to increase the horizontal resolution, Must emit vertical microwave。
Look at the a flat board is solid-state transmitter, which integrates thousands of transmitter modules. This type of technology is also advanced in the military, it is only low-power and low-precision in civilian use.
Most used microwaves are horizontal , including various interference sources and Ka guns (except for some communication facilities)
Our RD is a horizontal antenna. so we can receive many false signal
If RDs mount vertically, it will match the reflex radar wave. The maximum detection range can be obtained, but just when you are facing the radar.
If you drive towards the radar from behind, you will not be able to receive an single, You can only receive the signal when your car passes the reflex radar. You are already in the kill zone.
The transmission of microwaves in space is very complicated. Everything can be reflects microwaves, such as front the radar buildings, trees and cars. Each time the reflected microwave will changes its polarity, it from a vertical wave to a nearly horizontal wave, which is good for horizontally mount RDs.
If the RDs of two way mount are approaching the Redflex van from the front, the signal (distance) received by the V-mount RD will be greater than the signal (distance) received by the H-mount RD. How greater is it? Depends on the setup angle of the radar and the road
If they approaches the redflex radar from behind, H-mount It will receive the clutter reflected from the front of the radar and its strength is related to the environment on the front of the radar.
That's why same RD every time you approach from behind to the redflx radar VAN parked in different areas the signal strength (distance) is not same.
The V-mount RD is It will be very quiet, it will not receive these weak and reversed-polarity clutter signals. extremely dangerous.

In addition, the V-mount RD also will reduce the signal strength of the Ka gun, because they are is a horizontal wave.

Don’t forget, if caught you up not only got a ticket also lost Demerit points!
