I was gathering K band data using spec mode today in the area where i live and work just to see what frequency this auto doors are using. It was showing 24.116, 24.126 and 24.166 with different auto doors. On my way home, i forgot to set it back to expert mode. I was in the process of passing an 18 wheeler before approaching the hill and my X50 suddenly gave me an alert in spec mode- Ka 34.174. I knew there was a vehicle behind me going at 80MPH but i had to step on my brakes to get to within speed limits and i'm not sure if he was mad. I was still getting a constant alert since my X50 alerted me, As soon as i got to the top, sure enough, state police was there. I think the guy following me wasn't mad at all after knowing there was LEO or he could have got the citation. I am really satisfied with the X50 ability to pick up Ka band and has never falsed on me yet in the 2 1/2 to 3 months of using it. Got another hit on my way home from a deputy sherrif's patrol car using constant on on K band showing 24.150.
Enough for that. I wanted to get data's of the frequency you get from auto door openers as well as local police/state police using your X50. Jimbonnzz has posted frequencies for most K and Ka band radar guns LEO is using and wanted to compare if majority of the frequency we get from our X50 will be the same or will there be some out of frequency readings. By gathering data's for door openers and LEO's frequency, we can have some sort of knowledge which frequency is a threat or just false alert.
What do you think guys? I'm just doing some brain storming here in terms of how i can use the X50's spec mode as a tool to find out if it is false alert or a threat alert.
