We all know the caveats about simultaneously testing RD's.

What about simultaneously running radar guns when testing? I shot two K band guns today and they were in close sync with their readings but I'm curious what issues this might present for testing purposes.

How large was the span between the two signals? I read, somewhere on here that some of the Escort units will lock out LEO signals in lockout areas if the signals are close in output to the false signal.

I assume units that can pick up multiple bogies would illustrate them in the sidebar.

I'd say they were about 6" apart. :p

Will have to check on that now that you ask.

I would assume it wouldn't cause interference unless the frequencies are VERY close to each other.

I recommend not running two radar guns at the same time you will override the radar detector. With a V1 or netradar it will show two bogeys for two sources.

I ran two Decatur Gen II and Select II within 5 inches of each other, Freq 35.485 Circular Ant other 35.505 Patch Ant. I had no issues in targeting, just can see width of picking up. Ranging, didn't test offically, but Patch had shorter distancing.
