Bullrun 2006: Electronic Counter Measures

At the recommendation of Alex Roy who told us We're running with a Uniden BCD396T. It took a bit o' time to learn how to program (Thanks, Noah!) but it seems to be well worth it.

Today, we had 2 route options to get to St. Louis from Chicago. 55 or 57. The 57 took us out of the way... by about 20 miles or so, but thanks to a flurry of calls for backup on 55 to stop an "exotic car street race", we went to the 57 instead. We were not sure about our decision.

Then the calls started coming in:

"Got pulled over. 95 in a 55."

"I see three Bullrun cars pulled over up ahead."

"Be careful, if you get pulled over for driving faster than 105, you will get arrested."

"There's heinous traffic on the 55! Where are you?"

Where am I? On the 57 with no traffic and no 5-0. Thanks, Uniden!
