Thread: Amateur radar?
face BY : Mike Kendall email (remove spam text)

If the antenna actually rides on the backpack wearers device, I'd shy away
from it. If the antenna is seperately mounted, this would not apply.  I
heard that some of the origional police officers involved with speed trap
radars did not fare too well.  Apparantly,  due to the size of the radar gun
electronics, it was mounted in the back seat and aimed past the police
officers face between the driver and passenger  seats.  There were cases of
the side of the police officer's face becoming cancerous over time.  I just
heard this as a factoid/word of mouth.  If the radar unit was built in the
50's/60's, this might not have been considered when designing the unit.
