ABOUT THE MEETING:   Radar detectors were originally introduced in the market in response to the National Maximum 55 mph speed limit that was implemented in 1974. Since that time the radar detector industry has seen many challenges, including new bands (K, Ka, laser), innovations like “instant on” and “POP”.
Attend this presentation and learn how this product has been updated over the years to meet these new market challenges.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:   Mike Valentine is the Founder and President of Valentine Research, Inc. He and his former partner designed and marketed the first mass produced superheterodyne radar detector, the Escort, in the late 1970s, and since 1991 his company has produced the top rated radar detector, the Valentine1.
