So this evening first off - i congratulate my STi for its excellent performance on the 403 near brantford (south bound lots of construction) several bursts of X-band for about 1-2 km per alert. I didn't see any police but anythings possible- speaking of which x-band in brantford a real threat?? (Highway mode)
now to the Ka.
2 Ka encounters today. Both times I saw the police before i got an alert. This afternoon driving eastbound on eastern ave coming down the hill I see a Metro traffic stealth cop pulled over a cabbie. I received an alert when i was about 100-200ft infront of the cop and for about 500km once i passed the cop. (cop was facing west bound) my assumption i picked up his rear firing radar Ka band. (didn't have tech mode on...) (Was on highway mode)
Second encounter - again, i am coming from a higher elevation than where the Leo was. Coming into the city on the gardner, I see the cops pulled over a guy who i saw speeding about 10 km earlier- anyways - within about 200-300ft i receive a Ka band alert, and i receive a Ka alert for about 1km after I pass the cop. (CitynoX)
Now, shouldn't i be receiving alerts before seeing the police? or is Ka band just that directional that its that harder to detect?'
My sti is brand new A4M9 and have had it about 2-3 weeks now.
