This is my first post on the forum and I am very glad to be here. I purchased the Escort 9500ix because of its high reviews from both Radar Roy and the VeilGuy. Radar Royís assistance through email and his publications have been invaluable. Anyways, I started using my 9500ix, but I seem to have an issue that just wonít go away (it is intermittent though)! No matter where I go I have a very strong KA alert, and it takes almost ten minutes before it stops. I know the alert isnít a standard false alert because my old 9500i had no issues here, and I canít actually lockout the signal manually (by triple clicking the mute button), nor has the detector done so automatically. Do you know what is happening here? Also, unlike my 9500i the startup doesnít test all the bands, and I have yet to figure out a way to change this. Finally, I have updated the database as well as the detectorís firmware with the latest available. Thanks for your help!
