Double Protection From Speedtraps; The First Combined Radar Detector and Scrambler Keeps Drivers Safe -- Or The Manufacturer Pays the Fine!

EL PASO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 22, 1996--Who knows what squad cars lurk around the next corner?

The Phantom(TM) knows! This wallet-sized product from Rocky Mountain Radar is the first device to combine a radar detector and a laser/radar scrambler in a single compact unit. It offers state-of-the-art radar detection against, X, K, Ka (superwide) and instant-on radar guns PLUS the ability to render vehicles electronically invisible to waiting squad cars through a passive jamming technology that is perfectly legal. As a bonus, the company guarantees to pay the fine if a driver using the Phantom gets a speeding ticket.

Scrambling Police Signals

The Phantom's scrambler does exactly what its name implies; it scrambles any signal it receives. When it receives a radar signal, the unit mixes it with an FM chirp and bounces it back at the squad car via a waveguide antenna, effectively confusing the computer inside the radar gun. It always transmits an infrared beam that has the same effect on laser Lidar units. As a result, a car protected with the Phantom is invisible to police equipment. A custom integrated circuit provides complete coverage over the entire Doppler range, preventing telltale "holes" that will cause a vehicle to show up on police equipment at certain speeds. The scrambler has a 2- to 3-mile range that gives you time to moderate your speed before your speed before you hit the 100-foot danger zone where your vehicle may become visible.

For peace of mind, the Phantom also features multiple diagnostic systems that enable the driver to confirm the scrambler is doing its work. A built-in tester inside the circuit shuts off the power light if the unit is not working, and consumers can also conduct a manual check by pressing a test button that makes the FM chirp audible via speaker.

High Performance Radar Detector

The Phantom's radar detector protects drivers over a 4-mile range with advanced features that include a Mute Switch that turns off the speaker when the driver encounters radar; a City Switch that reduces the detector's sensitivity to prevent easy activation by automatic door openers and other interference; a Dark Mode that allows the driver to hear the speaker without irritating flashing lights at night, and a VG-2 Circuit that acts as a shield against police radar detector detectors. It also includes a different alarm for each band, variable alarm that indicates range and a test button to ascertain that all circuits are functioning properly.

Simple Installation

The Phantom is easy to install and comes with a windshield mount, power-cord and velcro. The unit works off of the car's cigarette lighter.

Three-year Warranty and Ticket Rebate

The Phantom is guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for 36 months. The unit also comes with an exclusive one-year ticket rebate program that will reimburse the customer for the cost of a speeding fine if it is no more than 30% or 15 mph over the speed limit. The rebate does not extend to more flagrant speeders because officers are likely to detect such violations by sight, whether they get a radar reading or not.

Pricing, Ordering

The Phantom sells for $349.95 and is available from fine electronic stores, catalogs, or directly from Rocky Mountain Radar at 915/587-0307.
