Any good tips? We use 10% of cruise altitude to paint the ground and then tilt 5 degrees up. For example, if were at FL210, well paint on the radar from the top of the screen till 21 miles out the ground and then tilt 5 up.

Here you go again with your attitude!!!
jeez the guy was only asking for an Opinion on how other people use their radar, but you had to show your arrogance again.

If you don't have any constructive ideas, why don't you just shut up???

To answer your question, I know King or Bendix had a training booklet available with some of their units, you might be able to find it on one of their sites.

If you can't find it PM me I think I have one somewhere. I'll photo copy it for you.

Cheers,

It was constructive, we've had a lot of good conversations on the subject. How about you lay off the chronic?

How accurate are those Radar speedometers that tell you how fast your going? Everytime i pass through one of those signs that tell you how fast you are going it tells me i am going around 10 miles slower than what my speedometer tells me. Ive only passed through two, i was going 40mph and both told me i was going around 32mph. There were no other cars close so that i could compare either. Are these radar speedometers exact or are they an estimate because i dont want to get a ticket.

To answer your question, "traditionally" cars speedometers are known to underestimate by a few km/h.
Next time you drive in a highway, keep it steady and time your speed between mileposts. You will see a difference.

Car speedometers only have to be accurate within 5% when they leave the factory.
