detector detectors for musikman

Yes and No. The police have a device capable of detecting most radar detectors. It works by detecting low level radiation from the Local Oscillator, a necessary part of every receiving device. Some radar detectors use what they choose to call "stealth technology". That technology is simply a grounded metal shield that surrounds the local oscillator prohibiting the low level energy to be radiated. It works well and defeats the ability of the police units to find your radar detector. Costs a little more but cheaper than tickets if you live in Virginia.
