I grew up in the Bay Area, but have been living in Portland for the last few years, and got my first radar detector up in the Pacific Northwest.
I'm down in the Bay Area this weekend and have been getting blasted by K-band on highways 13 and 24. My V1 will be totally quiet, and then out of nowhere, tilts on full bars for a few seconds of K, and then goes totally quiet.
It looks very much like an instant-on blast from close proximity, but there's no cop to be seen anywhere, and word is the CHP only uses Ka.
Also, I got a strong Ka band blast when I passed a BART train on the 24. Anybody experience these falses and have an idea what's up? The K-band is not automatic doors, it's got to be a drone or speed flow monitor, but it's a much stronger signal than the ones in the Northwest.
Lastly, anybody in the region who wants to party or hang out, come down to Pinky's Pizza in Walnut Creek this weekend. They're closing their doors after thirty-plus years in business at the end of the month; I'm friends with the owner Tom, and will be there off and on. Just ask for James. Later
