    Default X50 Expert Mode Question

    Today I was driving and noticed a Ka alert on my detector - Because i'm using expert mode the detector can pick up two Ka signals, and so it did and they were about even in power.

    As I kept driving i only saw 1 police car, could it be that if the car has a rear and forward mounted antena it would cause the two alerts on my x50?

    I dont know why this is, but when the x50 detects KA signals from a certain radar gun (is it the stalker?) the x50 will show 2 bars even though they are using one KA radar gun.

    Default False Ka bogeys on X50.

    Usually the X50 is right on with the bogey count. I know it's not a similar problem to the V1 ghosting as I have had numerous close encounters and the X50 went full scale and only showed one threat. However, a few days ago it did what you described, I looked around and found that a leo had parked his car in a Gart sporting goods parking lot and left his radar on. I took this opportunity to see what he was running. What I found in the vehicle was a single Kustom Signals Ka band Talon hand held radar with a dash mount pointing forward, still running.

    this happens to me ALL THE TIME with a local cop here SeTHY i get to bars like if they where 2 cops anyway type of radar unit used is a kustom signal eagle puls unit so as i know stalkers are not the only ones that cause the x50 on expertmeter to show 2 ka signals when only there is one cop shooting radar

    I've seen this too, two bogeys from a single LEO running Ka.

    I've also seen banks of store door openers cause only a single K bogey on my X50, when the multiple doors should cause more than one; in fact, my V1 would show 4-5 in the same spot, where there were like 8 doors.

    So expert mode isn't perfect. Much like the V1's bogey counter isn't always perfect.

    I saw this happen to me the other night. Driving towards the LEO the X50 went off with only one bar. When I was approaching the Leo from the rear it had 2 bars. Same strength. I drove by many times to test out the X50 and play with the LEO. I decided to pull off the road for a bit and see what cars the leo would hit. Well the leo must have seen my lights pulling off the road because as soon as I did within 3 mins he pulled behind me and asked what I was doing on the side of the road. I said, " Taking a cell phone call" He said ok I just wanted to check on you and looked at my licence and went on his way.

    What happens with the V1 when hit with a Stalker? How many bogeys does it show?
