    be having a run of bad luck .. if-ya-know-what-I-mean

    Chuck, I'm still relying on an old passport...the ones that only read X & K bands, but do so at a further range than most of the new "cover everything" detectors. That said, a friend of mine (he is editor/publisher of STAR, Mercedes Benz club magazine) swears by Valentine...once told me he'll never do a "road test" without one. This a recent conversation, so assume it's the same opinion. Boy, you DO know how to start a discussion, don't you? Another friend of mine had the best radar defense I ever heard of...Training in the F-111, he and the guy to his right tested some of the planes equipment on cops running radar..
    Guess they had stuff that would fry a police unit. Wouldn't THAT be nice to have?

    Hi Chuck,

    Hope you didn't get a ticket heading back to LA from "Lost Wages" - I agree, Valentine 1 is the way to go.

    Chuck- Myself and several others also agree on the Valentine. My shop is near the IBM R&D plant. One of the top engineers tore one apart and could not understand how they could possibly sell such a advanced piece of hardware for under $400. This guy has a Z-3,a new VW turbo beetle,a twin turbo quattro, and a custom valentine install in each car. As with all detectors, you have to learn how to use it,but once you do, there is no substitute!!

    Thanks guys, that's pretty much the poop I got on the outside .... 'best of the rest' is the latest Escort 'best of the best' is the Valentine....

    And ya
    Randy, on the way home with Fred I turned off my old radar for a 'pit stop', when I turned it back on down the road I got the hard 'test-hit' but it kept beeping
    .... he was under an overpass.
