So to continue our threadjack a bit aka bump this good deal to the top so more people can get in on it...
- Yes, everyone just move along. Nothing to see here, just @Samir and I discussing the P3700 ...
Running 2 RDs in parallel is actually a very old school trick--the idea that if one goes off and the other doesn't, the signal is false, but if both go off, you better be at the right speed. I originally used this between a Uniden and my brother's old Bel, and then with 1 v1 and the Uniden. And when I sent off my v1 to get modified I couldn't live without it, so I bought a second and when it came back, I retired the Uniden after I noticed when running all 3 in parallel (yes, I'm like that, lol), I did notice some instances when the 2 v1s did react differently. So then I ran the 2 v1s and still do. A LOT of noise to quickly sort through, but when you get used to it you truly know the truth.
- Why would 1 detector going off / 1 not = false? I think I'm missing the theoretical ...
So the LED modification is whatever you want it to be. Personally all I needed was the different bands to be dicernable at night, so those 4 (3 actually since I left one stock) were changed to amber, green, and blue. Now on one of my v1s I can instantly tell which band based on the led color as well as the sound.
- pic? Sounds cool ... me = must have LED mod ... I think its only fair since I don't even get to see my HDD's blinkenlights.
Haha, the officers here definitely have a lot of other more serious crimes to worry about, but it does make traffic accidents quite gruesome when they do happen. It definitely doesn't help that the drivers in the Chicago area are the most careless and reckless that I've seen in the US, so you have to be extremely careful just to stay alive and in one piece.
- Yeah, they are too busy dealing with all the corrupt politicians, which apparently outnumbers speeders in other states.
- I don't know if I would say they are the most careless/reckless ... I mean down here you have some idiots who think they can drive in icy weather, not stopping to think that maybe their tires may interact with the ice different than pavement and maybe the state generally is woefully unprepared to deal with a single snowflake ...
I actually haven't looked into any of the tethering apps because I never really cared for the machine to filter. There's still something akin to hunting that kicks in when I interpret all those signals and I have many times gone off on a hunch erroring on the side of caution and it saved me whereas another machine doing the filters for me would have maybe gotten me in trouble. It's a giant cat and mouse game to me, and I've gotten older to the point that I concentrate on staying alive more than playing the game, but once in a while I do want to get frisky--especially in the right car on a nice road.
- Yes ... the deer must think they are doing the hunting too, right? I think its the other way around (I get what you are saying o/c)
Yes, that rack mounting answer was a singlehandedly awesome post by WANg. I hope it's in the Guides section of the forum now for people to find--it definitely helped me get everything set up.
- It was quite the reply!
Yikes on that axis! I would be afraid the rail lock would fail and my server would slide straight down and BAM! Although that setup is beautiful and is probably detailed enough that there's not going to be a flaw that could cause such a disaster.
- Surprisingly, a single rack nut + screw on each side = enough to keep it in there.
- I do have a rather simple fail safe, thick cable ties connecting the rack ears to the rack.
- Thanks for the compliment, although I wish I didn't have to put all that effort into.
