I’m looking for a radar and laser jammer and detector for my 911, and I heard that ALP was the best so I went on their website to configure the options and I’m confused as to what they are selling me. It says there’s an option for “Radar Antenna Package”... does that mean a radar detector and radar jammer? Also, does the ALP come with a jammer and detector? Will I know when I’m hit by a cop? I’m new to all of this and I want a system that has everything in one that can be integrated into my car (I don’t want anything mounted on the windshield). What are your suggestions? I saw another forum talking about radenso and ALP as if they were the same company?? I didn’t see any radenso products on the alp configuration though. Can someone point me in the right direction? Price is not an issue I’m willing to pay whatever is the best and can all be the same brand for radar and laser jamming and detecting.
Thanks

You can't jam radar without hefty FCC fines. It is a LIDAR jammer with the option to add radar detection.
I didn’t see any radenso products on the alp configuration though.

Welcome to the forum! If are wanting to purchase Radenso with ALP you would need to locate a dealer to you and purchase directly from them. You could also purchase ALP and net radar as an option directly from ALP's website or one of the dealers they have. If you have any questions you can also call our support line at 888-RADENSO.


Also lets see some photos of this 911:)

Yeah, big no-no. Obviously most of us are pretty fine with things that are slightly illegal, like exceeding the posted limit or running a detector in places where detectors are banned.

Jamming radar is a different league, and one most here wouldn't be comfortable playing in. Risk is to great compared to reward. Early detection and driving with a reasonable amount of intelligence will save you very reliably from radar without the need to jam.

Well, some people think it's only illegal if you get caught. While I'm unaware of any currently available and effective police radar jammers, it's possible that you could contract someone to build one for you. Get ready to spend north of $20K if you want it to be effective across many different radar units. I doubt most cops would have any idea they'd been jammed if the jammer was designed properly. It's the sort of thing that might happen once or twice in a cop's entire 25-30 year career if he's a lifer.

But if you managed to get caught you'd find it costly.

I interpret your situation to be that you are looking for a complete technological solution to the problem of speed enforcement and are willing to pay any price to get it. I just want to let you know that the technology available is a wonderful accessory. But it will not solve the entire problem and depending on it WILL get you a ticket. The biggest factor in avoiding speed enforcement is operator attention, focus, and awareness. You can’t just drive fast and let the machines protect you. They won’t. They’ll help you protect yourself, but the YOU component is primary.

Let me give you an example. Pacing. Pacing is a real threat in my area (New Jersey). There is no technology to help you avoid it other than constant attention and awareness of your vehicular surroundings. It’s work! I actually drive into the barracks parking lot periodically to see what unmarked vehicles they are using. Then I memorize the front and back configurations so I will see them coming and going. Whenever I am approached or passed by an LEO I focus on the vehicle and put it in my mental inventory. So when I look in my rear view mirror and someone is approaching me from a distance, or look far ahead at someone I’m approaching, I can pretty reliably predict if it likely to be a police vehicle.

And that’s just pacing. I won’t even get into aircraft, vascar, etc. If you are not going to put the work in, the money spent on technology will not protect you. And if this amount of work seems unreasonable, the best option is to stay within 5-10 over the limit.

At this point, I never speed at all when I just want to relax and drive around town. Traveling at extra-legal speed is hard work, and really should only take place on the open road, basically on highways.

So by all means, outfit your 911 with everything on the market. But at that point, you will still be a sitting duck if you are not paying active attention every minute you are traveling over the limit.

I see that you're fairly new here. Glad to have you on RDF! No substitute for Mk I Eyeball. Yet.

ALP is compatible with serval remote radar detector systems. Radenso and BRD (https://www.bestradardetectors.net/Laser-Protection.html) are your best options for buying a radar detector / laser jammer combo package and both are members here.

another excellence source for info is Vortex

Couple of options to choose from. All together packages with 1 controller for all of it.
RC-M bridged together with ALP.

Want to use a phone as the controller. Netradar DSP with ALP.

You could run systems separately like a remote Escort Max369Ci... but you’ll need to find dash space for 2 controllers. One for each system.

Then the last option is a windshield mount detector and a separate ALP system. Cheaper. Easier to change the radar detector to another as technology advances. Cheaper to install.

Personally... and what I run is the RC-M paired with the ALP system. Clean and discrete. One controller for everything.

Agreed. The most important law is always "don't get caught." If you can follow it perfectly, it's the only one that matters.

But unless you can be 100% sure of not getting caught, risk/reward must be calculated. ;)

The bigger issue is that LIDAR is a time-of-flight based system. Jamming involves sending out pulses to confuse the gun about how far the beam has traveled before it has reflected off an object and bounced back. RADAR uses frequency shifts based on movement of objects, and has a fairly wide beam. Getting multiple signals back to the gun at the same time is completely normal, and even if you transmit a signal at a precisely controlled frequency (which is technologically difficult to accomplish) back to the gun to try to jam it, the real signal from your car is still there, and can be processed and displayed by the gun. Sure, most guns today either display the "strongest" or "fastest" (most Doppler shifted) returned signal, and can be set to only display stuff for a given direction (i.e. toward or away), but all they'd have to do is make a gun that displays all returned signals regardless of strength and it's game over again, unless you find a way to reduce the RADAR cross section of your vehicle.

I get the feeling that the responses went a little off track from OPs original question. My read is that you simply want to know if ALP offers both laser protection and a full radar detection solution in one package. I didn't see an answer to this and I'm not sure.

On the Randenso part, they bundle ALP with their detector to give you both Laser and Radar in one complete solution (but from two manufacturers - ALP and Radenso). Radenso added some slick integration functionality to allow the use of their controller head to alert and control the ALP functions.

Definitely check out the Vortex website for more complete details.

I think all the main points have been covered, but just noticed this part of the question.

Answer: Yes. ALP will alert that you are being targeted by laser and immediately start jamming.

You immediately brake to a legal speed as fast as you safely can, and then kill the jammer. Cop gets a reading at legal speed and thinks he was just a little slow acquiring your speed.

Thanks for this. I think this was what I was looking for.

Thanks for the heads up. Is there a button that is easily accessible to shut off the jammer in a short amount of time?

Yes! You can also set to automatically disable in X amount of seconds.

Very well said and an excellent contribution!

Do you have a write up somewhere on your experience with this set up?

No. It’s not much different. The RC-M and ALP do not react differently.... it’s just the interface between the 2.

Anything in particular your thinking of? There’s a few drawbacks.... but if you have a controller, and access to the ALP brain... it’s not an issue.

That’s more for pulling stats files than anything else.

I don’t have the controller from ALP, considered buying one, but it hasn’t been enough of a concern to chase one down.

The biggest addition to mine was the LED light addition. I smoke and like my tunes... so the LED addition was a nice layer of alertness.
