No problemo.  I bought a pair of wide-angle detectors (60 deg).  They
don't really have a huge selection.  Some parts are VERY expensive ($3+
for one detector vs. the current $2.50 for 2).  The detector looks
different tho.  If the wide angle one works well, I can refund all those
narrow angle ones that Malone recommends.  Great minds think alike. ;)

THis is precisely the reason why I bought 8 narrow-angle detectors
anyway...  I saw Alex Smith there too; he bought some parts for Roy.

Will do.
