I just got my first detector (x50) last weekend and have fallen in love. Before last weekend I knew absolutely nothing about radar, etc, I have learned a lot in a week it seems. I am just a little obsessed :/ It's not so much that I even speed, but the pure fun in tracking what bands of radar the LEO's here use, how far I can pick them up, and which cars are shooting where. I drove to SC, 16 hrs both ways to see this girl I liked, and after getting home, exhausted, I went out and drove here locally on the main road looking... In a week I have found that most use CO K Band here but the newer cars (chargers) and the state troopers, use Ka. I did use it on the way home from SC, picked up a lot of CO Ka and used rabbits most of the time if I was speeding. I have not seen a laser shot or any IO yet which is good Anyway, I would like to mention that I love erickonphoenix's videos and his wisdom. I have learned so much from him and everyone else on the forum, and would like to thank him greatly. That's all for now though, just wanted to introduce myself I have work in 4 hours, maybe I will find some fun on the way.
