    Default Escort Redline 90% false alarms in K band

    I'm in South Jacksonville, FL area and 90% of time I'm getting false alarms in K band 24.1-24.2 Ghz. I mean I have to push the mute button every minute!
    Do we have any new road devices or car equipment out there working in 24.1-24.2 band and causing heavy interference?
    Radar detector is set into Highway mode since it's much more sensitive.
    Ka band has no false alarms.

    If you have an older radar detector, you are probably picking up K-band radar collision avoidance systems. These falses can occur when you are on the highway with a bunch of other cars.

    If your detector has TSR, then you can turn that on which can help a little bit, but Acura and Honda and GM cars still can wreak havoc.

    What detector do you have?

    Thanks, as I noted in my first post it's Escort Passport 2-3 years old. Yes I have TSR function in the menu disabled and will turn it on :-)
