Laser Jammer

Hello, I am looking to get my bike equipped with a jammer. There seem to be two systems out there, Laser Pro Park and the M25 X-Treme. Does anybody have experience with either of them?

Thnx

Jam Me Please

While I've never read a test on ANY jammer that would make me run out and buy one... I got an email from a customer a few days ago that you might be interested in.. I'll just paste below a portion of his email... If you want to contact the guy.. PM me....

I am utilizing a BEL Pro RX-65 Radar Detector interfaced with a Cheetah Vizalert, http://www.speedcheetah.com/scshop/p....php?xProd=109, in my helmet. I am also utilizing the Cheetah Laser Jamming interface with the Laser Pro Park Laser Jammer with front and rear jamming heads, http://www.speedcheetah.com/scshop/section.php?xSec=129. The system is a slight pain to install as you have to pull and your plastic, and your gas tank off to do a proper installation. That being said, there is NOTHING short of a military anti-jamming counter-measure airplane, that comes close to the abilities of the entire systems on my bikes.

After the install, the operation of the system is almost idiot proof. As i am flying down the road, usually at 2-3 times the legal speed limit, my BEL PRO RX-65 Radar and Laser Detector is constantly scanning miles ahead of me for all Radar bands and indications of lasers. Inside my helmet, in my peripheral vision is a small bank of 6 different color LEDs which automatically adjust for brightness. At the same time the Laser Pro Park Laser Interceptor is scanning front and rear for any indication of LIDAR (Infra-Red laser beams from the enemy). If the BEL PRO RX-65 Detector picks up a signal in any band, it will illuminate a colored LED in my helmet which will tell me exactly which band of RADAR it is detecting, i.e.

Hi, thank you for the links. I think Radar wise I will go for the Bel STI. Not sure yet what to do with the visual alert. As I am going to have an audio system (Baehr) I think I go just with audio alerting. On the other hand it is very convenient to have the remote alert via LEDs.
In the meantime I found the following link: http://www.guysoflidar.com/
Those guys seem to test on an annual basis Radar and Laser equipment. But stop do not read it - otherwise you will by one ;-)

Thnx a lot again

Exclamation It's Illegal!

Hey Guys:

As being part of the "enemy" I can tell you that both Radar jammers and Laser jammers are illegal in most states under state law, and they violate FCC rules since you become a radio transmitter when you install a jammer, without an FCC license.

With that said, lets talk about Radar and Laser forms of energy.

Radar is a burst of Microwave energy that is broadcast out much like a shotgun blast, hits a target vehicle (s)and returns a signal that is determined to be not only the strongest signal, but the fastest target signal as well. For example you have a mack truck and a K1200S. The mack is doing 60 MPH and the K1200S is doing 120MPH. The radar will most likely try and return a reading from the mack truck at first, then convert over to the k1200S at 120MPH. It is then up to the trained and certified operator to discern what vehicle is doing what speed.

Laser is much like a high power sniper rifle. Depending on the manufacturer of the laser, it fires off anywhere from 8 to 20 bursts of light energy in a millisecond. The laser is target specific (often equipped with a gun like scope with cross hairs or a red dot) and can acquire a vehicle as far away as one mile if properly aimed. I personally have acquired a car as far away as 4900/5000 feet away. The Laser gives not only the speed of the vehicle, but the distance it was acquired as well.

Fellows, the bottom line is if you are going to speed, be prepared to face the consequences of your actions...

Besides the audio alert of the STi that you can run through an autocom to your speakers, you can mount the remote visual alert on your dash. Another benefit of this is that you can reach the mute button on the remote so you don't have to hear the constant beeping as you sit at a stop light behind a LEO or near a grocery store.

Cool

Thnx for the input. I do not consider the police force as enemies but try to reduce the spend on tickets. It is important though that every driver does not endanger others. But as it is your job to govern this very principle you know there are drivers and DRIVERS.
Radar jamming is definitely illegal, laser jamming is illegal in some states according to FCC. But we should not get into a legal discussion as this is a biker forum .
