Today, I went to the FedEx facility in Victorville to pick up my 9500ix. After a bit on another thread, I decided to buy a 9500ci and a 9500ix. Here is the thread:
Newbie post: Escort SRX or 9500ix w/ ZR4
Special thanks to djrams80 and Z1NONLY for helping this newbee out.
Anyways, I have not had time to get my 9500ci installed yet, and I just picked up my 9500ix from the FedEx depot. After leaving Victorville and heading to Barstow, I start getting a lot of false allerts (it says "X" band)... I kept looking around and didn't see any cops. Then, closer to Barstow, it goes off and I mean GOES OFF!! It said ("Ka").. It probably goes on for a minute or two. So I slowed down to 74 on my speedometer and 72 on my new 9500ix. Well, out from no where comes a CHP cruiser hanging out behind me in my rear view mirror. I didn't see him before and I was looking intently because I wanted to see if it was a false positive or not.
Anyhow, I was worried that he was going to give me a ticket, but he just passed me and went on his way. About 3 minutes later, by the Barstow Outlet Stores, I see the same bald CHiP on the side of the road and he pulled over someone else for speeding!!!!
So w/in the first hour, I probably saved an 80 in a 70 ticket!!!
I approximate that the 9500ix picked up on the Ka for a minute or two before and probably two or three minutes after I passed his pulled over car. I guess the cops just leave there radar gun on even after thay pulled over their target!!!
Anyways, thanks everyone for all your help.
