    So far I haven't encountered any X-band in CT. I've been doing a lot of travelling on I-91, Rt. 9, and the eastern half lf I-95 with no indication. I have encountered K-band, Laser, and what might have been K-band POP on the Merritt Parkway earlier in the summer. At night they pace in umnarked vehicles.

    Nope. I keep it on because I've encountered X-band in other states (MA). Also, you never know what the local guys will be running. Better to play it safe IMO.

    I've been driving in CT for the last 6 years in all regions, but i travel the most from new haven to fairfield and sometimes to storrs, i have never ever encountered any X-Band, definately K and KA and the State Troopers are mostly using Laser now, when they have radar they mostly have K band, they get more money hence the laser guns . . . i've run with the 8500 and turned xband off and now i run with the V1 and i have Xband off as well . . .
