“Show me a Rocky Mountain Radar Scrambler that works and I’ll pay you $50,000” – Radar Roy 2004
Radar Roy is so sure that none of Rocky Mountain Radar Detectors/Scramblers work that he personally issued this challenge to Rocky Mountain at the 2004 SEMA convention in 2004 and they turned him down.
Because they don’t work as they advertise.
History of Rocky Mountain Radar
Michael Churchman then working out of his Denver area home, founded Rocky Mountain Radar in 1992, promoting himself as a former electronic warfare designer from Texas Instruments.
His first product was called the Spirit claiming that it was able to jam X, K and Ka radar by simply reflecting the police radar signal back to an officers gun, mixing in some white noise.
Shortly after this Automobile Magazine published a story titled “The Little Jammer That Didn’t” which basically debunked Churchman’s claims that his jammers were effective.
Radar Roy vs. Michael Churchman
Shortly after the launch of the RadarBusters website back in 1996, Radar Roy obtained a RMR Phazer radar scrambler for testing.
After it failed miserably, Roy phoned RMR’s new corporate office in El Paso and expressed his concerns with Michael Churchman himself.
Michael explained to Roy that he felt that his testing mythology was flawed, because the jammer was designed to jam police radar while a vehicle was approaching an officer using police radar from miles away.
Roy explained to Mike that he was a certified police radar instructor and trained hundreds of police officers in the proper targeting of vehicles with radar, and that a police radar gun couldn’t target a vehicle “miles away” as he suggested.
Then in 2004, Roy personally issued his challenge to Mike in Las Vegas, prove to me that you’re scrambler works, and I’ll pay you $50,000. Mike’s response “I don’t need to prove it works to anyone, I know that it works and that’s good enough for me.”
