    $160 US, no name, probably get seized at customs - Blatant ad by
    business owner.

    I don't think so.

    Not if you have a ham ticket and claim to have modified it

    in fact the police could be charged with interferring with a primary
    service .

    I was told you can buy them in W.A. but not use them anywhere else in

    Oh, now THAT would be a good one to try.
    I might buy one.
    It would be an experiment to see if their radar systems are spattering our
    frequencies. That would be winnable in a court, especially if it's modified

    Even cheaper to not speed.

    AFAIK, the police radar detector detectors only pick up local oscillator
    leakage from the RD.
    A *well* designed RD will probably not be detectable at any useful distance,
    but the cost of such units is pretty high I believe.
    And after you spend a fortune and think you are safe, the unmarked patrol
    cars will simply follow you anyway.

    The odds are very low , after all I hear there are only a couple of
    detectors in my entire state .

    legal to buy and use in WA.
    In WA highway cars use K band - on all the time, easy to detect.
    police standing on side of road use laser - hard to detect at distance
    during the daytime
    stationary multinovas use Ka band, easy to detect but only up to a few
    hundred metres. They are starting to use 2 multinovas back to back to catch
