Okay, here are the results from the thread i started on k band testing with the V1.
This is the original thread, along with a video clip of "A" and "L" in action.
First things first. Here is the original test parameters in Word format. 10 pages.
Here's a copy of the Final test results for download. It's a 2 page Word doc.
And here's a pic of the test results.
I tried to make this as condensed and self-explanatory as possible.
As you see, The more you change the settings to alert less, the more range you lose, mainly on instant on type encounters.
The difference between 5, 15, and 30 seconds was not very noticeable during these tests. The biggest difference i found with them would be if you live in an area that runs some constant, and then shuts it off for a while, then turns it on again. The 5 second seems the safest in this instance, since it seemed to break the barrier the easiest with a longer instant on pulse.
Anyway, this should give you a pretty good idea of the different setting combinations.
Now just decide what threats you face on k and set "L" mode accordingly.
Also, I run "L" mode in the city, with "F" changed, and a 30 second delay.
In open areas i switch to "A" mode, and on the highway i run strictly "A" mode.
