Do MA, NH, and/or ME use 35.5
I was reading a thread in the Valentine sub-forum about the relative inability of the V1 to detect off-axis 35.5.
Does anyone know if Massachusetts, New Hampshire , or Maine uses 35.5?
35.5 is the most commonly seen Ka frequency around here.
I can't really speak for MA or ME, but in NH, just about every city/town/county that has Ka has 35.5 Kustom or Decatur guns. State troopers and highway patrol, however, use 34.7 Stalker guns.
About the only Ka frequency I don't see (except from leaky Crapras) is 33.8.
Looking at the Radar Bands By Town sticky in Speed Trap Info, looks like Maine is similar to NH, with the stateys using 34.7 and locals using 35.5. None of the Mass. entries have frequencies listed.

My V1 is friggin' awesome on 35.5Ka.
And I bet it does a good job went hit straight on from the front or rear, but again if it's off axis 35.5, good luck!.
Maine state police - 34.7 stalker dsr 2x (nasty nasty unit)
Old Orchard beach - 35.5
Falmouth - 35.5
I had a chance to meet and chat with Suf Daddy yesterday. I asked him and from what I remember he siad in NH and Maine the locals use 35.5 and the staties do not. I can't remember what he said about MA.
mass has K band radar, some Ka band radar but mostly laser
