Handheld stalker ATR, I think there are some photos of our setup in one of the videos.Just wondering what type of Ka unit you were using and the power as my Stalker Dual DSR front is twice the power of my rear gun. My calibration is only 2 months old so the cert will be accurate. So with mine being like this my front gun reaches 25% further than the rear. Track days the rear gun is better as I am reasonably close.
Interesting regarding the different motorcycles, we in general found that bikes were hard to get a consistent lock on at any great distance with both radar and laser. Maybe just our technique with the laser.That's cool, do you know the power output? Yours is more handy than mine. I can lock 2Km out but that's useless. What is interesting is different makes of motorcycles are not the same at getting a lock on. For some reason my Carbon Fibre front seems to absorb most of it until about 100m away. It is exactly current issue without the lockouts for NZ. Actually one gun is slightly hire in frequency to the other as not to cause interference when both are running.
Yikes!Got a confession to make, years ago I purchased one of those Mirage 2001 stealth units that are meant to block the radar, well at 500m on my MC he got me because it helped him not me! Bit of crap but had no way of testing it except a ticket. Made me shine like the sun!
Glad we could help !Wow stellar effort guys!!! And for a guy that just really needs an on off button to get things to work, I’m happy to say it was very easy to understand,!
Also, from what friends WITHOUT rd,s were recommending compared to the results, I’ll be going a different way!
Thanks for the save
Look at the angles and shapes and RF absorbing coatings on Stealth aircraft, the H2 isn't a million miles away from that.That's cool, do you know the power output? Yours is more handy than mine.

It's been done with V1, and it works. But according to other posts it reduces Ka range.
Like @LouG says, apparently so. There are a few youtube videos out there as well, but no substantive testing as far as I know.
Here's an excellent explanation...in short, you'd increase the reception of the horizontal Redflex but lose detection distance for radar that is polarized differently..
Redflex is like the holy-grail for radar detectors, not even the Stinger has cracked it yet. Hopefully the R7 will be useful, but being a bit leaky, probably not safe to use in the eastern states.I think you kiwi's are lucky to know the redflex is attached to a van which sticks out like dogs nuts on the roadside. In oz it could be mounted on anything. Commodores are common, I've also seen an SUV, and nearly got nabbed by one on a Ford ranger looking Ute. The Ute was jacked up on its suspension, so I could see right under the car, and noticed a tripod like thing in front of it, that didn't look "normal".
So advice on detectors for this would be worthwhile posting for your neighbours across the water in Oz. It's getting difficult here! We need all the advice and help possible. Cheers for the info/testing you guys have done. It's killer!
