From what I've seen there has been great controversy and mystery as to whether or not the X50 does the following when you turn a band off in the programming menu
- The unit continues to sweep the band, but surpresses all alerts
- The unit ceases to sweep the band, possibly increasing sensitivity of other bands.
I propose a test that might shed some light on this answer.
With all bands activated, someone will measure an X50's detection distance to a specific K band gun. Ka will be turned off, and the distance will be measured again. Since Ka is such a huge band, the sensitivity of K should go up A LOT if the unit is no longer sweeping Ka.
I don't think anybody has done this because nobody had the guts to shut off Ka, but for the purpose of a test, the results should be interesting.
Anyone else think this is a good idea or willing to do the test?
