    Default SWS alerts?

    I had a cobra and it had a different alert for all the school bus drones(K band) here in dallas fort worth

    I know the original 8500 (incl. S2) has SWS

    anybody try activating this? does it work?

    It is about as usefull as Cobras in General (In most states).

    It (SWS capable) really shouldnt be much of a concern, if any, for you when buying an RD.

    yeah i know

    but since i am interested in the S2 i was just wondering

    it was nice with the cobra that it alerted SWS for the school bus drone

    with the X50 it comes out as 2 K signals.... not knowing if it is a cop or a drone

    you're right, it's sent out on a modified k band signal. if it is transmitting the code and sws is enabled on the detector, you should get one of these codes.
    the thing is it's pretty much not in use any more from what i have read.
    maybe someone with more detail can elaborate.
