So while I was traveling from Austin to Houston I left the X50 on Spec display because I was tired of getting random Ka band blips.
On my trip I faced 3 Ka alerts. The first two lasted only a 2-3 seconds and were weak signals that displayed Ka 33.5xx and the other Ka 35.3xx. I'm assuming these were from Cobras of some sort? What else would cause the X50 to alert these frequencies? The frequencies used by LEOs are 33.8, 34.7, and 35.5 right? So if it's off by 0.2 can I assume it's not coming from a cop?
The last Ka alert was a somewhat hidden LEO. The Spec displayed it as 34.6xx. It gave me a good 2-3 seconds to slow down as I was going 80 in a 70 before I saw the LEO. I think it was running constant Ka but not for sure since I muted it. I didn't get a strong Ka alert from the start so I'm assuming it was constant on. I wasn't too impressed with the X50's range though. Plus I couldn't tell how strong of a signal it was since I muted the alert since my passenger was sleeping.
All in all I saw a lot of cops today...about 3 that already had pulled someone over. I forgot that it was the end of the month and that cops needed to meet their quota until my passenger pointed it out.
