Ok well considering my driving record and my "we will rape you" insurance prices I have been doing some digging on a quality Jammer/Radar combo. It's the best of both worlds. So far I have come to find that the LPP aka Laser Park Pro http://www.laserproparkusa.com is the best unit out there from indepent sources. Best part they are located somewhere in WA where I live.

Question to the board is what does everyone think would be the ultimate radar search and destroy set up. Short of getting a police scanner installed and located their GPS signals which I think would be illegal. The goal is to find the signal block the signal and slow down fast enough so I don't have to get that ticket. Which for the most part I'll just get droped in court but I don't want the hassle. Anyone have any input on a Better Jammer/radar combo. I'm thinking the LPP with 4 heads in the front, 2 in the back and V1 yes that's over kill but radar is like a condom don't leave home without one.

Tell me more about the GPS signals, please.

Im in the same boat as you Rei. It seems like im in court all the damn time now. I manage to get most dropped but Im considering some prepaid legal service so I dont have to waste my time so often.

Dont forget if you are going to brake really hard when you jam their signal you had better be able to hide that system REALLY well! Some of those guys will pull you over if they even think you were speeding. I got a ticket in a parking lot the other night 11pm for going around a speed bump. Beware the jammer wont avoid all encounters and you will still get tickets.... going around a speed bump, what kind of crap is that?

depends if you want a dash mount radar detector to go with your laser jamming, or a combined all in one unit? or compontent modules you can hide within the body work.

"the best" may not suit your requirements?

Ronin just had a CHP test his blinder.
The CHP cop nailed him 6 out of 6 times with a laser.
Blinder==Garbage for lasers.
Maybe for standard radar it works?

Get a valentine and downshift/slowdown on any audible note.
ps:I have had 1 ticket in my entire life. Surprising the way I drive but I am always scanning for cops visually and with the radar detector.

Around 1997 or so, when they first started using lidar in New Zealand, I investigated making a laser jammer. I found the frequency, power, pulse length and beam spread from the gun, and then worked out what I'd need to drown the signal out.

I don't have the details with me any more, but I remember that the lidar transmitter had both a lot of power and a narrow beam. Something like 25 watts in a beam only a few milliradians wide. The pulses then reflect off your car, mainly from the headlights and license plate, back to the lidar receiver. The receiver is a certain size and gets about 25 milliwatts back from the average car at the average distance.

To overwhelm the lidar receiver you need to increase the noise to signal until the lidar can't distingush the pulses. It helps a lot if you know the frequency, pulse length and pulse train rate. Even if you need only 25 millwatts (SN 1:1) to disrupt the signal, the jammer LEDs would have to put a lot on energy into a small cone - this is the killer. Running for the tightest beam LED at the highest power possible was not going to put enough energy into the lidar receiver to confuse it. I did not go any futher.

However, I did see a good article where they field tested a jammer and it did work to some degree. The test must be to measure the detection range rather than a pass/fail speed test. The jammer reduced the detection range of the lidar. Also I believe putting infra-red absorbing film on the mirrors, license plate and headlights helps.

You certainly need to keep your eyes open and to stay with the flow of traffic. BTW I've never had a ticket.

I am surprised at this. I have them in my Cooper S and my Elise. From my experiecnce they work. I have the Escort version.

If they know you have one..they will hit your lights or your windshield. Otherwise they hit the plate. I wonder if the CHP was hitting the lights or plate. I would like to know more about this exersise.

Thread from the dead! But hey, the question fits here...

Has anyone with an Elise/Exige been caught by laser and were NOT running a license plate up front? I had a cop friend a few years ago say he couldn't get a readout on my car. He assumed it was because I didn't have a front plate and the laser signal couldn't "bounce back" due to the shape of the car. Maybe it's been dumb luck all these years, but I've always assumed my Elise was invisible to the LIDAR gun.
