How to calibrate your SR3600 with a tuning fork.
A tuning what!?
A tuning fork is metal device that is used to calibrate a radar gun. Without getting too technical (we’d probably confuse ourselves anyway), we’ll give some simple instructions on how to calibrate your Sports Radar gun to ensure it’s accurately reading.
- Turn radar unit on, either in continuous mode or in trigger mode.
- Firmly strike the tuning fork on a hard surface so that the tuning fork rings a steady tone.
- With the tuning fork ringing, hold the tuning fork steady approximately 4-6” in front of the radar unit. (If the radar unit is in trigger mode, pull trigger.)
The Radar unit should display a speed of 54-56 for a 55mph X band tuning fork, or 64-66mph for a 65mph X band tuning fork. If the radar unit reads below or above these speeds contact Sports Radar for additional help.
