About 5 years ago my dads company dabbled in Radar Jammers.
The units we had were designed to mimic an aftermarket cruise control box in fact
I still have a few of them but any way it had two antenna leads one for the inside
of the grill and one to mount under and back of the rear Bumper.
Using A radar gun we tested these and found that they do indeed work wonderfuly
and from even great distances as well as close distances. the front control panel
had ajustuble push button settings for 25,35,45,55,65.
the only problem with these units are that they ran so hot that they had a short
life span usualy under 2 years.
Some problems I experianced using these were simply
1. cars in front of you slam on there brakes because of there radar detectors go
off wildly when nearing them.
2. My fathers mistake:
When exiting the freeway on to the offramp always remember to ajust the speed setting
down to the the new legal speed limit that you just entered he once got a ticket
for doing 65 mph in a 25. The sad part was he was only doing 30

Maximum speed electronically limited in U.S. to 130 mph. Obey all traffic laws.
