What is pop radar


When radar detectors proved easily capable of sniffing out radar from miles away, radar gun manufacturers responded by producing instant-on radar or unoffically called "Pulse" radar. In the instant-on mode, the radar's transmitter is placed on hold, ready to fire but not yet producing a signal for detectors to hear. The officer waits until his target is very close (brings a new meaning to "wait till you see the whites of their eyes") then releases the radar from stand by mode and gets a speed reading within a second or so (pulse). In this situation, no detector offers much warning.
There are guns out there that operate just like the instant-on guns of the past but with a very tough twist - POPTM mode! This gun is a normal K and Ka band radar gun detectable by most radar detectors made in the past 30 years, until this gun is placed in POP mode. When the gun is in POP™ Mode and activated, a brief burst of energy, less than 1/15 of a second, is transmitted and the vehicle's speed is quickly acquired. A detector without POP™ Mode detection capability cannot respond to this brief transmission.
TIP - When traveling in unfamiliar highways always try to find a vehicle which is traveling at the same rate or faster than you are and keep several car lengths behind them. This way the other vehicle can "flush out the radar".

No speed is displayed when the trigger is pulled and aimed at the baseball. Just mph and the radar icon. It has new batteries. What could be causing it not to detect speed.


You can add up to 25 miles an hour and more to your swing speed by taking advantage of your hidden, built-in swing speed multiplier. The top pros have always taken advantage of their hidden swing speed multiplier. It's why they drive the ball 280-300 yards The average golfer does not know he has a swing speed multiplier built into his own body-and drives the ball 210-220.

What is the swing speed multiplier built into every golfer? And how does it affect swing speed? It is a hidden lever system that multiplies any increase in hip speed 25 times.

How do i read a radar detector


When a radar or laser is detected, the unit will make noise. As you get closer to the source of the radar or laser, the noise will get louder and the signal levels (if you have a detector that shows signal level) will get stronger.
Since police officers like to wait until you are close to them, they may keep their radar guns turned off until you are very close to them. Once they turn it on, you are likely to be busted unless you can REALLY slow down quickly. Most radar guns take a series of average measurements on the speeding car. If the samples are too far apart, it keeps looking for a series of successive speeds that are close. This happens in a few tenths of a second.
SO even if you hear a SLIGHT noise from your detector, it may have been from a brief instant on radar gun in front of you, so BEWARE until you are sure that there is no threat.

The valentine detectors use multiple antennas to tell you where the signal is coming from. This is handy.

What do the the symbols Ka, K, X, L, and SWS mean on a radar detector


These symbols refer to the frequency of the radar gun's signals that are used to detect your speed. L is for laser, x, k and Ka band have designated frequencies that they use for radar traffic control. They range from around 10GHz. to 30 GHz. if my memory serves me.
A typical microwave oven operates at 2.5 GHhz or so.

Cobra XRS 9440 will not detect police radar. Does not alert when I drive by a police car. How can I fix this problem? Is there a way to change the settings so that I can be alerted when there is police...


Radar detectors are not police detectors. Radar detectors only alert to police when the police have their radar guns turned on. Most police officers operate their radar guns in "instant-on" mode rather than leaving their radar guns turned on continuously. Instant-on operation involves very briefly turning the radar gun on for up to a second or two in order to get a vehicle's speed.

Cobra radar detectors are known to have great difficulty detecting the 35.5 Ka band radar gun frequency. This should be considered a serious problem since 35.5 Ka is the second most popular Ka radar gun frequency following the most commonly encountered 34.7 Ka radar gun frequency. There isn't much that Cobra can do about this issue since their competitors hold all of the really good patented solutions for detecting 35.5 Ka police radar while ignoring false alerts caused on this frequency due to other radar detectors.

Yes. On many radar gun models the officer can lock your speed and turn the radar gun off, yet the radar gun will still display the locked speed. Officers are not required to show you the locked speed.

Bushnell radar gun always displays the same speed


Ever if Your radar gun don't display "low voltage" icon - change Your batteries, use only the best alkaline batteries (High Power) od NiMH rechargeable batteries. That will fix Your problem.
