Question

So, if I understand what I've read correctly;

1. If I had a flat tire on my truck this would cause my detector to be slightly tilted and lower to the ground which in effect would decrease the performance of my rd.

2. Thinking about this pond or water idea, if I were to have my rd just above the surface of the water and someone threw a stalker or mph radar gun into the pond my rd wouldn't alert me because,
A- the waves produced by the radar gun would block the antenna on my rd
B- the waves produced by the radar gun would go over my rd and short it out
C- the radar gun would not work because the water would interfere with the ability of the gun to work.

In the above case would it be better for me to have a sonar unit?

Nine if you could help with this I would be very grateful.

Pretty much a don't care scenario. With a flat tire you don't really need the detector anyway.

Really depends on the temperature. Below 20 degrees or so the RD would be unaffected due to the ice over the pond, but the radar gun might break on impact.

Nah.....Radar is pretty much line of sight. Nobody is going to see you under the ice.

This is why I seek out your expertise, I wouldn't have thought about the ice thing or the flat tire stuff. Thanks buddy, your the greatest.

Default You are all wrong

The radar gun send out a fairy and he touches your car and gets the speed. The he flies back real fast to the radar gun and inserts the speed into the display.
