I hope that I am posting this in the right forum and if not oh well. Anyways I was at a gas station filling up when I over heard a helicopter flying above. Now a few things first. One it was night time. Second this is the following configuration of my bel pro rx65 at the time of the encounter:
X band = ON
K band = ON
KA band = USA
POP = ON
Laser = ON
KU = ON
SWS = ON
Meter = Threat
Ok now as the helicopter approached I saw a level 1 KU band on the right hand side where X band levels normally are. As the helicopter was right smack dab over the station it went to a level 3 and as soon as it passed it went off.
I just thought I would let everyone know of my experience. Any comments or other experiences are most welcome and appreciated.
Thank you in adavance!

Since I want to avoid a double post and this important topic being locked I will just edit this one. I was at the same gas station I was at when I first encounted the KU alert w/ the helicopter. Today or I should say tonight I got a level 1 alert before I moved only this time there was no helicopter that I could see. So I am thinking if I keep getting this everytime then it must be something near the gas station that triggers it, but I have disabled SWS, POP, and X & K band since I know for 100% they are not used in my area at least only KA and I think LASER but no confirmation on that! I'll keep posting my encounters![/b]
