Radar/Laser Cloaking Device for Audis

Recent threads alluded to devices that scramble police radar and laser
signals. The thread was less than specific as I remember, about details of
how they worked. I am posting the following only to supply the details of
the ad, and to provide opportunities for additional debunking. I have no
personal knowledge of the unit, and can't even imagine risking my money on
such a device.

 About 30 minutes ago, I reviewed a currently running ad in a national
monthly recreational vehicle magazine. The scrambling device is apparently
made by Rocky Mountain Industries. They call it the Phazer. It is available
from  Comtrad Industries, and you can call them at 800-992-2966, mentioning
promotion code 1904-1199. Unit sells for $199 plus $14 S&H.
Ad sez it is illegal in OK, MN, and Washington DC, and legal in all other

Offers free trial, 3 yr mfg. warranty, money back if returned for any
reason within 90 days. They guarantee to pay your speeding fine if you get
a ticket within the first year while using the product.

How do they say it works? "The Phazer...reflects a portion of the (police)
signal plus an added FM signal...This in effect , gives the waiting radar
unit an electronic 'lobotomy.' " (Advertiser's words.)

Then they go on to say that police radar takes 5 to 10 measurements of a
vehicle's speed in about one second. The Phazer sends one signal that tells
the radar the (speeder) is going 15 mph and another signal that the
(speeder) is going 312 mph. Because police radar can't verify the speed, it
displays no speed at all. (italics) To the radar gun, your (vehicle) isn't
even on the road.

Then the ad describes how the laser scrambler works. ....uses  light
emitting diodes to fire invisible infrared pulses through the windshield.
Laser guns interpret these pulses as a false indication of the (vehicles)
distance, blocking measurements of your speed. (italics) Again, it's as if
your (vehicle) isn't even on the road.

"......begins to scramble both radar and laser signals as far as three
miles away...."

".....its range of effectiveness extends to almost 100 feet away from the
police car, at which point you should be able to make visual contact and
reduce your speed accordingly."

They are selling the idea that radar and laser gun screens remain blank
when encountering these scrambler signals. That is the impression I got
from reading the ad.

If anybody tried these things, or has experience with the 90 day trial or
the 3 year warranty, or the "pay your fine" rebate, we would be happy to
hear about it. My estimate is that no one on the list ever received any of
these benefits.

Maybe the police officers on the list will risk a few comments. I'd be real
interested. Personal or public replies appreciated.
