Yeh I know they are different.
But thought that with all the commercial boys having them it was better than say, a tube reflector?
If of course they're allowed to reduce clutter on their screens by selecting who they want to display, then yes I can see why you can't rely on them to spot you. But if you don't have a RADAR reflector like me and get caught out in Fog, then this can be an effective alternative?
