Today I learned something interesting with the 9500i and Iím not sure if this is a feature and I missed it in the manual and forums but on the base I work at, the police have two permanent stationary radar stands that are shooting KA 24/7 showing drivers there posted speeds. Since there always there I decided to lock them out. When I tried to lock them out, the 9500i would only mute the KA signal and no LOCKOUT indication. I figured something must be wrong, so I took a drive over to the mall where I knew I would get a few good hits from the stores since I havenít locked them out yet. As I approached the mall, I got a few X and K hits from the stores. I was able to lock them out with no problems.
I knew were another KA radar speed stand was located so I decided to give that one a try and see if I could lock it out. As I approached the radar with the 9500i blaring away, I was unable to lock it out, just mute. I wondering how come Iím able to lockout signals from stores, automated doors, mall etc, but not when facing an actual radar device.
This might have something to do with signal strength (automated doors compared to true radar). This is a good feature I guess which prevents the user from locking out a true radar hit.
Has anyone else seen this and I just missed it. The 9500i is working great and Iím able to lock out all the annoying areas except for radar speed stands.
