Radar Roy Tests the Rocky Mountain Radar Jammer
Radar/Laser Jammer Fails Again!
On June 25th and 26th, 2005, Radar Roy teamed with Carl Fors of Speed Measurement Laboratories to test Rocky Mountain Radar’s newest jammer, the RMR-C450.
RMR C450 Test Preparations
Before the test, Radar Roy purchased a RMR C450 from Rocky Mountain Radar distributor DBL Distributing, located in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The RMR C450 was installed as per its installation instructions: on the front windshield and plugged into the car’s cigarette lighter.
Test One – Radar
During this radar test the operator used a hand held K band radar gun and a speed display sign.
Radar Roy used two-way radios to communicate – to alert Roy if the RMR C450 was was jamming his radar equipment.
Radar Roy began the test situated 1.5 miles away from the radar van. (A good radar detector would detect a radar signal from this distance.)
Roy powered up the unit, and allowed it to go through its power on self test.
Roy started rolling towards the van. The RMR C450 triggered the K band radar gun the first time at an approximate distance of one 1.4 miles away.
At a approximately 1,000 feet, the Rocky Mountain Radar scrambler displayed a “level four alert” and the speed display sign becomes visible in the video.
It displayed 50 to 51 mph as Radar Roy approached.
During this test, an officer operated a hand held laser gun.
Radar Roy and the officer used two way radios to communicate – the officer would let Roy know if the RMR C450 was was jamming his radar equipment.
Red pylons were placed 1000′ and 500′ away from the officer, indicating the locations where the officer would active his laser gun.
Again, Roy powered up the unit, and allowed it to go through its power on self test.
The RMR C450 never alerted to the police laser gun during this test.
At both the 1000′ and 500′ pylon, the officer was able to lock onto Radar Roy’s vehicle.
The RMR C450 FAILS
In both tests, the RMR C450 failed to jam. SML and Roy agree, this unit failed at jamming!
Rocky Mountain Radar Myth
Rocky Mountain Radar states on their web site that their units will not jam road side trailer signs because they don’t have a “sampling computer”.
False statement? It is Radar Roy and SML’s opinion that products don’t jam this type of radar is because their units just don’t work, Period.
Rocky Mountain Radar Claims Test Faulty
On January 29, 2005 Roy and Carl from SML both teamed up to video tape their first testing video. Rocky Mountain Radar was telling people who call them that the RMR 450 used in Radar Roy’s first test video was not plugged in. Rocky Mountain Radar says “if you look closely when they zoom in, you will not see the lights of the unit”.
Therefore the re shoot of Radar Roy’s test with radar gun, was done during the evening, in a light rain shower. This allowed the camera capture the dimly lit display of the RMR C450.
