I commute from Columbus to Wilmington on I-71 everyday and more times than not, I see mobile OSHP and Sheriffs but no indication on my STi. I wonder if they've stopped broadcasting Ka in lieu of a more targeted scanning technique. POP perhaps?
I know my Sti is operational since once off the interstate, I pick up Ka from Sheriffs when they're turned on and x or k band from long range (2miles +). One save in particular I can attribute to its stealth capabilities as I was behind a dump truck and the Sheriff stopped transmitting after he got the truck then suddenly turned his unit back on as he didn't see me.
Any idea what's going on folks? New Ka band in use? New technique? I recently purchased my Sti and it has the 33.8 modification and I think the newest firmware upgrade. Date on the unit was 10/08.
Should I keep my unit set on autoscan or go for the highway setting?
Any info would be greatly appreciated as this is my first time here.
