You obviously have a great career too, plus have direct interaction with alot of classified equipment, sounds a dream job?

There was quite a "famous" case here in the UK of a guy who was running a jammer in his car. He was able to speed past the Police on 3 separate occasions, each time, apparently blocking their equipment from taking a speed reading (however they DID get his number plate).

So after the 3rd time this happened, the Police made a visit to his house, and they took his vehicle away. It was then stripped down, bumpers off, trims all removed, interior taken out - and they located the jamming gear he had installed.

As a result he was issued a hefty fine, for "interfering directly with Police enforcement equipment", along with a suspended jail sentence.

However I believe speed camera detectors (even the direct radar detection type) are now legal to use in this country. Jammers illegal.

But because none of those can detect (digital) average speed cameras, and a few other types, GPS Database type "detectors", seem the most comprehensive, from a notification perspective.

As you indicate, common sense, plus road craft, will protect you far better than perhaps the false sense of security, running such a device.
But as a bike rider you tend to accelerate away faster than cars / also while overtaking... probably those seconds are when I'm likely to get zapped (would be just my luck)!
EW is not my principal area; compatibility between systems, is. Since EW systems are installed on the platforms I support, they are one of the considerations and one of the irritants to co located equipment. ESM (detection/classification) equipment is some of the most sensitive receiver equipment you can use inside the atmosphere..... it doesn't like to be in the presence of electronic noise.

Anything that generates noise that it is not meant to, I may eventually look at. Anything that is interfered with by unknown sources, I may look at. New equipment that is being qualified for use -- that, I test on a regular basis. You're right, I will not talk about specifics.

With a back ground in airborne fighter RADAR, then into compatibility testing, as well as a career riding around on ships, yeah this is a pretty cool job. I was a science nerd long before that was cool, and it's paying off now. The stuff I was reading about in science fiction books and magazines in the early 70's I am watching in action, today.

The trickle down effect, to consumer grade stuff is a lot faster than you would think. When a company starts mass producing stuff for the market, the cost per unit is so much less than a system specifically designed for the military -- the stuff you can buy at WalMart really isn't all that much different than what the government buys for the troops. The fundamental electronics of the thing, at least.

I keep telling anyone designing stuff for the military that they need to understand that anything you sell to the Marines, has to be built to fulfill it's third function as well as it's first two. The third use is as a hammer.

They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

Agreed. Actually I find all feedback and interactions (with other members) on this site to be very informative plus much appreciated too. It was the direct response from RJ, in that lengthy Post that I referred to. didn't want to come across as I didn't appreciate other replies.

I too benefit greatly from the interactions with our membership.... not just as someone who can offer some advice on some subjects -- I learn stuff frequently as well. Many of the maintenance activities I have performed on the ZX6 are a direct result of knowledge I have gained, here, from the membership.

As the saying goes, it takes a village. none of us should be minimized, at least until we prove that we can't play well with others....
