Default Mobile radar stand

My workplace's security uses mobile radar stands on the premises. My problem is that my iXc is not picking up their radar signals. The iXc will detect the security staff's radar guns mounted in their vehicle.

The signals were not previously muted nor locked-out. My iXc has ALL bands turned ON.

I'm not worried about it. I'm just curious as to why the radar is not being detected by my iXc.

Certain radar emitters such as small speed signs are either off-frequency or Escort's filters are rejecting them as known non-police enforcement devices.
I've gone past quit a few that showed me my speed on the sign and the RD was silent.

Police do not use those signs to issue citations. Those are there to (hopefully) slow you down, that is all. Actual police radar is used to measure your speed for a citation.

Your RD won’t alert because it doesn’t see the frequency. This type of sign is directional and will usually only show speed of oncoming cars.
If you want check the side of the radar antenna on the sign and see what the spec's say on the side of it. It might even say it's a FM-CW, and it runs around 2.45-GHz.

Thanks for the links. I used the wrong strings to search for any prior forum answers/solutions.
