Now the decision whether to return my 9500i, which I was going to do pending the ramp-up fix, has just been made a bit harder!
I will still most likely wait a bit due to the ramp-up issue.
The GOL August tests are out now and the 9500i did great, much better than expected.
Even with radar-absorbing foam (used in straight-line tests only), the latest 9500i's (need to find out the date code from GOL!!!) came in a solid second behind the V1, trouncing everything else (except the STI which was very close on 34.7 and, not surprisingly, 33.8Ghz) in the straight-line tests.
The 9500i also finished 2nd, behind the V1, in the around the curve tests!
They tested Ka 34.7 and K).
In the forward-facing test it was #2, behind the V1.
They bought another 9500i and confirmed it wasn't a fluke!
The 9500i also alerted to all 3 Ka 35.5 instant-on burst tests, unlike the RX65, Bel 995, Bel STI (even with bug fix, which missed 1 of the 3 shots) etc.
Thanks again to GOL for all their testing efforts.
PS: The one lingering question is did the unit tested still have ramp-up issues?
