So, I figured to take a spin around 8 o'clock tonight and drive around on some local highways and well traveled roads. I figured what the Hell, hopped in my car and I was off. Within the first 20 minutes of the travel I was hit with ka 34.7. It was a NYSP, traveling towards me. Initial alert was roughly .6 miles. I thought that the night was over.
As I continued, there is a stretch of road about 3 miles long with a slight bend and a grass median in the middle. The speed limit is 55 and most do a solid 70. I was traveling on this road after my Ka hit and got a FULL blast k band hit. I tapped the breaks gently and move into the right lane. Silence. Then another quick blast. Roughly .7 miles down around the bend was two LEOS running very VERY selective i/o. I had a rabbit which is how i got the Hit, but boy was I lucky. Turns out the car behind me didn't get the hint when I tapped the breaks and signaled to the right lane, due to the fact he got pulled over.
The last three Ka hits where all 34.7, shown by the x50 in spec mode. The ranges on these were from .4 to .8 miles, which I am pleasantly pleased about, considering the elevation and curvy areas. One of these alerts were also immediately received after I turned onto the road, so I am going to assume that the .8 would have been Far longer. The .4 mile detection was moving i/o which as we all know is deadly as hell.
Overall, what a crazy night. I think it is safe to say the x50 did its job fairly well given the circumstances. I am still shocked that I had 5 encounters within an hour.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
