    Default What bands of radar is in use in each state?

    Does anybody have a list of what type of equipment each state uses? I am most interested in New York, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida. In Canada I am interested in Ontario. I am trying to figure out who uses what (X, K, Ka, etc...). Thanks very much.

    Default Radar bands

    Mike,
    N.Y uses alot of Ka, some K, No x band, some laser and no vascar. Also air enforcement is not out of the question. PA uses K band only as far as radar goes. The municipal police depts. definitely use vascar and it is deadly! I have not encountered laser yet and don't believe they use it. Air enforcement also possible. NJ uses X band, K band, Ka band, some laser and also air enforcement is possible. Hope this helps.

    In the days when I still had a CB radio on the way from Cleveland to Columbus in ohio I'd often hear truckers talking about a "Bear in the Air". They love to nail you from the air.

    In Ontario.......mostly K band, but there seems to be some movement towards Ka band....the newer "Stealth Cars" are equiped with Ka Band.
    Some X Band is also still in use. So be prepared for all bands.
    Of course Lidar is a constant threat....... personally I'm debating getting a Blinder....but hiding the transponders.....PROBLEM....... :cry:
    Watch out for Spectre the OPP......love it.....in areas like Wasaga Beach.

    Stealth cars :?:
    Usually dark blue Malibus or Crown Vics.......no roof lights......and loaded with the latest speed measuring equipment......and possibly a Spectre..... :shock:

    Sometimes they are adorned with dark stripping and decals that are only visible when they come into contact with light.
