Guys of Lidar
On March 9th through March 11th, Radarbusters hosted the Guys of Lidar (GoL) “Radar Detector and Laser Jamming Test” in Wickenburg Arizona.
The GoL team is made up of radar detector and laser jammer enthusiasts from across the US and Canada and we paid for their transportation costs to come out to our testing course to test all the latest speed countermeasure equipment.
We also had representatives from Beltronics, Laser Interceptor whom made the trip from Croatia, and Cheetah that made the trip from Scotland.
The GoL members methodology involves setting up “worst case scenarios” to test the effectiveness of the speed counter measure equipment. We also had two police officers whom were both certified in radar and laser enforcement, whom the GoL consulted with during the setting up of these exercises.
During the first couple days we experienced a “weird” Ka radar signal that basically flooded our original testing area, so at the morning briefing the GoL identified an alternate location that their testing site was moved to.
The highlight of the event for me is when they outfitted my 45’ Renegade RV with a prototype of the Laser Interceptor. Wagers were taken at punch through distances for the first run and no one bet on “Jam to Gun”, which it did!
I commend the GoL for their high level of professionalism and dedication. They endured my cooking, one hungry rattler and the hot Arizona sun to provide a very comprehensive radar detector and laser jamming test.
