I received an rx65 for a gift for Christmas. I believed it was purchased off ebay though. Anyhow, I've come across two sheriff's deputies running k-band. Each time I don't get much of a warning (maybe a 10th a mile at most) and each time its only a 1 or 2 alert. It hasn't ramped up any higher. The first instance, the cop was at an intersection and I was coming at a 90 degree angle. I chocked it up as being a hard to detect signal. This last time, I received a warning and looked up and see the patrol car coming at me but it never gets over a 1. Is the detector not working right? The second time, it was raining but I couldn't imagine rain having an effect on radar. I know it does on laser but I wouldn't believe that would be the case with radar. On the other hand it seems to pick up the automatic door at the local hospital like my Vector radars I've had. The local hospital doors set off the k-band a good 250 - 300 yards away.
From what I've read on this forum today, rx65's purchased off ebay are not offered under warranty. However I didn't have any trouble registering the detector and buying the extended warranty from Beltronics yesterday. Will they not honor the extended warranty even though they charged me for it?
Am I over-reacting or does it sound like the detector has a problem?
