RE: VG-2?

About three years ago, on I-64 just inside VA, my wife was nailed for
possession (and use) of her radar detector in her bimmer.  The only way the
REO could have known about it was through use of the VG-2.  The RD was
*well* concealed.  IMO, VG-2 works, at least in those cases where older
poorly shielded RDs are involved.
