Driving on the freeway today and had a really fast ramp up Ka hit at 34.6xx. Looked around, didn't see anything, R7 arrows pointing forward. Max signal in about 1-2 seconds. Saw a google earth car with the big round camera array on the roof, as soon as it passed me, arrows shifted to rear and within 2 seconds the signal was gone.

Has anyone else come across one of these vehicles to confirm what I experienced or know what they have in the car besides cameras?
 

thanks

for all the fish

I would laugh if that driver had a leaky detector, unless it had BSMs on it and the R7 hit a false freq.

IF it was the google car, it had to be a pretty strong signal, 4 lanes of traffic either direction with a cement barricade separating NB for SB lanes.

The ramp up was so strong and the arrow change so exact as the google car passed, I can't think of it being anything else. Certainly no PD around it just seems to much to be coincidence.

Were there any County Incident Management Trucks around? I finally caught one on video yesterday running two Ka transmitters at 34.7 Ghz.

The Google part should be only cameras.

I thought I got a KA hit on an ambulance the other day. Never seen anything else in the area.

Me too! This is getting bad. Many false triggers in Ka now. Here is one first responder that triggered what you also experienced.
