I posted a few weeks ago how, while at the GOL tests I found out my Sti was "deaf" to K and Ka bands.
Anyway I dropped my Sti off at Escort in Cincinnati on July 28th and they were kind enough to fix it for free even though it was about 6 weeks out of warranty. Kudos to Escort for this amazing bit of customer service!!!!
I picked up my Sti from my NY home after completing my 2 week road trip and was surprised at how fast the turnaround time was.
July 28--dropped off at Escort in Cincinnati, OH
Aug 1--arrived repaired in Niagara Falls, NY
The service card said they repaired the antenna and upgraded the software. (Note to MEM-TEK: the repair card did have LNA written on it, along with a few other "code" letters.)
I haven't done any real tests with it yet (against my V1) but from local known K-band sources, I have to say that my unit is really, really hot on K band.
