Been lurking for a couple of weeks, here. I just got my first RD, a 9500ix.
Decided to do it after a trip to Los Angeles. On the way home, we settled in behind (a good 1/4 mile) a brand spankin' new Audi with a 9500 on the windshield. We were probably rolling at 95-ish approaching the Bird Rd overcrossing on n/b 580, right after I-5 splits off and heads North. Anyway, he stood on the brakes, as did I. Under the overpass, snug as a bug in a rug, was mister Chippy. His chase car was in the center divide about 1/2 mile north.
Figured out right then and there what I wanted for Christmas.
So far, having a great time with the unit. Mostly seeing rolling Ka band around here, both from the Sheriff and CHP.
Love the forums!
