Wait a second, you mean there's technology out there to determine how fast something is moving which is not moving directly towards or away from a stationary target?



Wow, guess all those astronomers and NOAA and NASA scientists aren't just guessing.



Thanks for the basic trig. I don't remember that stuff but since it's completely irrelevant to the fact that a RADAR GUN (radar guns don't remember trig either) is useless from a plane I guess I don't care.

Oh, and by the way, your math will only work if the plane is fixed in the sky genius. Calculus must be senior year.

it doesnt really matter because do to the above stated points it would be stupidly easy to dismiss as evidence. now if you want to continue to argue how effective it can be to the exclusion of its inadmissibility then im guess its gabe at the helm. (no offence gabe.. i actually like that about you even though we rarely agree for the same reasons. )

. First the plane doesn't have to fixed if it is moving perpidicular to the road.. plus radar works at the speed of light. . Anytime you want to chat about it in my office .. Plus the radar doesn't need to know trig.. idiot.. it just measuring speed via the frequency shift. That is why there is an error.that can be calculated. Tell you what I'll send you the whole proof.. I'll dumb it down for ya so you don't have to know calculus..

"First the plane doesn't have to fixed if it is moving perpidicular to the road."



Well, it'll have to be fixed soon if it's not moving perpendicularily straight up...

WTF! No pictures of MY bike? I want a refund!



Some great pictures there Fonz, as always. I've been waiting for these and it was worth it.



Still trying to decide if there is a "Knupp". I don't want to consider the possibilities of him being an anonKomous person...

LOL... actually there IS airborne radar than can determine ground vehicle speed & direction

probably not mounted in many state police Cessenas

Really. All you need is a watch and a pad of paper and a pencil. Or maybe a cheap handheld calculator.



Unless you are a MOron 'cause they apparently need a Cray computer and a NASA interferometer to calculate speed.
