No Action in the Radar Area??
Well just to keep this area warm:
I recently acquired a Valentine 1 radar after getting nailed in a local spped trap while in my cage. 53 in a 35, not pretty. Shot me coming over a hill from 1/4 mile down the road. I don't know if it was instant on (Pop) or not, but I'm fairly certain I would have gotten a scatter beep from the Valentine as he shot the cars in front of me.
I've been using the Valentine for about a week in the car, and it has already saved my bacon once with a state trooper coming up fast from behind and blasting away with continuous Ka band. I slowed and he sailed past, nabbing a pickup in front of me for probably 15 over the 65mph limit. That alone probably saved me the cost of the V1 in fines, aggravation and insurance premiums.
The Valentine goes on the BMR shelf this Winter, but I will undoubtedly be grabbing it for car trips too.
