So, I'm walking back to the office from a luncheon today (got to see Ukrainian President Victor Yushchenko give an address to the Economic Club of Toronto) and there's a whole fleet of motorcycle cops and OPP cruisers waiting to escort the President to the airport.
I see a special Highway Enforcement OPP cruiser parked at the curb with two bored cops (young guy and totally hot young girl cop--but I digress...) and naturally I notice the very small Ka antenna on the dash. For those of you who are wondering what's the big deal--the OPP has pretty much only used K band for the past number of years.
So being the curious type, I approach the side where the hot chick cop is seated and stick my head in the window and ask what kind of radar gun is that. Amazingly both didn't know...and the guy (who was driving) read it out "Genesis II directional". I asked him if that was a Ka band antenna--he said he didn't have a clue. I thanked them, and went on my way.
So, unless Decatur is making a really small K band antenna with the rounded "bubble" top, I can visually confirm 35.5 Ka band is now found in OPP Cruisers.
