    Some cellular antenas can be triggering your RD on X band, i experienced this several times. Any cellular towers in the area??

    None it was about a block from my house it was like a instant on hit. When I went back along less than five seconds latter nothing may had been a Cobra detector or something in a car passing me.

    Thats hard to tell what may have caused this but a cheap RD may be a reason

    Some Unidens will cause X band falsing.

    The Cobras I have encountered recently have caused K band falsing, but that's not to say that some models don't cause X band falsing also.

    These Cobras are really leaky RDs.
