My girlfriend got me an RD for my birthday last week, a Cobra XRS9930. I never had an RD before, so I did some research and found this site. After reading and advice from members, I used the gift receipt, returned the Cobra and paid the difference for a Vector995. Picked up one state trooper so far using K band from about a little over a mile away. Not to bad! I'm really looking forward to using this when I drive 4 hours down to Ocean City, MD in 4 weeks. BTW, i'm in Bethlehem PA (lehigh valley).
