Default varying signal strengths from radar

I am getting varying signal strengths from radar in different cars (Ka band) sometimes directly across street with low signal readings. I do not know how some of the radar units work. Is there a different setting that is used by the radar units (Police cars) like low medium high standby that varies the signal strength?

Nope. Signal strength is a constantly changing variable depending on the terrain, antenna placement in the cruiser and the "axis" of the beam. It's different with every encounter except head on.

Also can't they turn the signal down they are shooting at you as well, so not to give you as much time to react???

Default I picked up few beeps

I drove by a speed trip in town cruiser parked across a 4 lane highway pointing across the highway flat road.
