Default Radar Sign is not being detected.

Hey all,

First I attempted to search Google and then these forums, but could find nothing. Maybe bad search terms or what. I don't know. Apologies if this is already out there somewhere.

There is a new radar box mounted on a speed limit sign in an area close to where I work. It has a blue led that can be seen when approaching the sign and displays your speed when you get about 50ft from the sign. The radar box is about the same size as the speed limit sign it hangs on, but sidways. I have the Escort Max360 in the car and it never goes off on this new radar box. The detector has always preformed very reliably so I do not have any reason to suspect a failing unit. I have some other radar detectors that I will take when I go back and see if any of them respond.

What is the story with these type radar boxes?

The one here seems to be very similar.

This one says it is K band, but the one in town does not trigger K band on the detector.

This is perfectly normal.

Not all these boxes use a frequency that is detectable and some that do may have polarized or modulated signals. However, whatever frequency type it is, it's not one used by police for ticketing.

Many here have run across numerous of these type boxes.

Agreed there are several near me that don't register on my detector. It's normal.
