Re: Remote Radar Detectors/Detectors in Germany -Reply

Start of message from GKW
I have two remote radar systems.  One is from Fox and I can't
remember whose name is on the other one, but they are virtually
identical.  The nice thing about them is that the receivers use
rechargeable (via the Cig lighter) batteries so that they are easy to
mount in neat places.  (under the huge dash overhang on the older 100's
and 200's).  The problem is that they are only OK at detecting hand held
radar and it is not easy to "shut off" the transmitter which is in the grill
and typically always on.  They function quite well as "Cop detectors" in
the wide open spaces.  Let me know if you need more info.
