a jammer will not necessarily render useless a nearby detector.                 
most jammers are triggered by a detector.  therefore, nearby detectors          
(the good ones) will pick up the initial radar encounter first and then         
see the jammer output.  once the jammer resets, the airwaves are once           
again clear.  val1 owners would prolly figure that officer bob is               
hidden in the weeds and not give it a second thought unless the two             
vehicles just happened to pass during the radar encounter.  the real            
moron is the guy behind the thumb that starts this sequence.   =8)
