can't tell ya what the box is, but if you have or have access to a radar gun...use a rubber band on the trigger and make a pass with the gun pointing in the direction you are going...on the ground or something. If it's like mine, it will LOCK onto the fastest speed with somewhere close to 1000 ft.

It's a RADAR. I remember seeing someone selling them a while back. Can't remember who or where though.

It's a portable, fairly accurate, radar device they sell for golfers and clubfitters to measure swing speed.
The problem is that you've literally got to be within inches of it to get an accurate reading, otherwise they're all over the map.
