I've read a lot of speculation in the forum here that Belscort is running the 33.800 GHZ frequency as a "priority channel" of sorts. I've been able to prove, to my own satisfaction at least, that this is not the case. On two separate occasions now, I have had the detector alert to POP from Stalker radar systems at around 35GHz. These were usually cases where either the signal was already detected and rapidly getting stronger, or just barely out of range. So apparently Bel/Escort is scanning the whole Ka band for the quick pulses, not just the 33.800 part.
So, to Belscort employees reading the forum-
Why not give users the option to select, in the menu, which parts of the Ka band are scanned for POP bursts? I suspect that this would cut the POP falsing down tremendously. Maybe do it like the Ka scanning on the 975R, where the Ka band is broken up into 4 sections, and the user can select which section is scanned for POP, and which sections needs to recieve slightly longer pulses before alerting.
Professor Jim- do you see any problems with this plan? Think it would be do-able?
