What are the units to those numbers?
Miles from (Radar Gun/Crest of Hill?) before detection?
It looks like the 690SE being in operation at the same time as the 9500ci slaughtered the 9500ci's 35.5 Ka band range. I wonder whats up with that. My older Pro78 didn't have that kind of effect on my 9500ci. I notice that the V995 also somewhat hampered the 9500ci's Ka band range. Is that V995 an older S7 unit?
Freebird and I were trying to think of reasons besides sensitivity, that might help some RDs see over hills better than others, but couldn't really come up with anything solid, besides horn shape and angle. Any guesses MEM-TEK,or any of you for that matter?
Looks like the 9500ix r@ped 35.5. Nice to see!
Why were the 2 Vectors models so different in performance on 35.5 GHz?

Good test guys.
In any event, radar scatter over a hill is extremely weak. Depending on exactly how well each radar gun is aimed each time for each test run could explain the slight range variances for each RD. You guys did a good job by conducting multiple runs for each RD in order to get a good average detection distance for each RD. It was also interesting to note how well the M4 antennas performed against 35.5 radar. I have been saying for quite some time that the M4 antennas have excellent on-axis sensitivity even though their off-axis sensitivity leaves something to be desired.
