    Default Bel Vector LR (970) Performance

    Hey, I own this detector and have noticed that KA sensitivity is pretty crappy to say the least. Anyone agree or disagree with this? K and X band are great, I pick cops up at least 20 seconds away. How does this detector compare to an X50 or RX65? :?: Think it's worth the upgrade? Suggestions?

    Oh yeah I live in Northern NJ and travel to VA alot, so X band detection is a MAJOR factor!

    I used to have a 975R and I really liked it. The V1 was a major upgrade, though. Ka was ok on the Bel sometimes, other times it was downright pathetic. Now that I've learned a bit I think that it just had trouble with the low-power radar. The Valentine is much more consistent, which I think is due to a vastly different filtering method. From what I hear the x50 and the RX65 are also excellent, as is the bel995.

    There are also ways to "stealthify" a V1. If you get the remote display and remote audio adapter you can start to get creative.

    Hay stop *****ing about the 970LR on ka band. Mine is very very good on Ka band.. 8) That said I'd like to try out the newer Bell or Escort to see how much they have improved them.... :wink:

    Beeej259 take a look at the little (hand tuning) card Bell includes with your detector and give me the specs tests for your detector in each band...

    I don't think the manufacturers normally publish this info. There was some talk about it in this thread though:

    So maybe BiGeAsYgUy has some info on this...

    I am not sure of the performance of the Bel 970 or how close it is to the Bel 980 but this is the Bel 980 in the 2000 SML test:

    My "hand=tuning card" reads 110 db/cm ka/k which I believe is pretty darn good...It reads a whopping 115 on x-band which means that in New Jersey you could detect every radar cop in the state!!! :shock:
