Hi all, I'm green around, so I first want to say thanx to all the folk that have posted info and test results. Really helped me in refining my decision to buy the RX65. I am actually a closet tech geek so getting a hold of my first detector has been fun. Actually I apparently needed it after two citations in one month :cry:
However, I still have a couple questions.
I drive mostly in the mountains of N. calif., wooded & windy. I don't expect great range because of attenuation, but I still get about 1-5 seconds on corners to react (gotta be quick) :wink:
On several occasions I have come around corners to have the RD jump to Ka3-6, like instant on. Then as the LEO passes opposite direction the strength doesn't change. I'd expect something higher at point blank range. I've even passed a CHP @ Ka1 and nothing more.
Can the LEOs adjust the transmit strength to very low levels?
One other question, what is the effective range of Ka guns?
Other curiosities - got laser falses driving through snow-patched high country.
Got X-band falses in the middle of nowhere (truly boondocks).
I've even had a couple POP falses (no one around here has it).
Anyway, any thoughts-
