    Default narrow KA band on X50

    I know the answer to this question is no.

    But, is there any possible way to adjust the X50 so that it uses narrow KA band 34.3ghz instead of the superwide band that it currently is on? I really really need it to scan narrow KA band just like the Euro mode of the V1 so that it can work against multanova's much better.

    What about sending it to escort for them to configure it? Or is there any other possible way?

    Thanks

    answer is no 8) but for ka narrow you would have to get a different rd :wink: like a bel 550 target euro rd unit.

    It does...

    It's called the Ka USA mode (AccuSweep). It only scans the known police radar bands with higher sensitivity than Intl mode (default).

    AccuSweep is sort of like a narrow band Ka i nthe USA but really it isn't

    Wideband means it scans all the frequencies of Ka narrow band is very specific on what is scans for, generally "34.3" the multanova photo radar cameras which are a huge threat in europe
