I was traveling through NC last weekend and had several confirmed hits from highway patrol officers using X-band. The first was from an officer that already had someone pulled over. Afterwards, I spotted and detected at least four officers positioned on the on-ramps using X-band to clock traffic from the rear. The X-band they were using was very low power. Each time I got about a 1/4 of a mile warning and my detector never went past a half-full alert. I was using highway mode and my detector supposedly is capable of a 10.8 mile range alert to X-band. I did not want to believe it, but after several encounters I started to. My sister also told me that she had been blasted in NC by an undercover state trooper in a camaro using X-band too. At the time, I told her her Cobra must have been malfunctioning because I had previously only seen Ka used recently. I had to tell her and apologize. So, I would not turn X-band off for any reason on your detector as LEOs still have the equipment ready to be put into action again.
