I turned on my KU band on my 9500ix when I got it. This morning I got a strong KU band alert in Southern Harris County near Pearland Pkwy. The leo was on the other side of an over pass I was getting ready to go under to get on the beltway 8. I thought KU was only used in Europe. Before this I was only getting K and KA in Houston. POP saved me the other day with an leo using POP with KA instant on.
