going from us1 on malabar rd going to I-95 is 5.5 miles to 95 from the us1 hiway.
so as i turn at 6am its a straight shot to 95 in sight but exactly 5.5 miles away and the signal kept getting stronger but it never lost thge signal during anytime and i though no way can it reach that far here in palm bay, fl but it did! it was an fhp using a straight dead on approach early where it drops to a 35 mph zone before entering hwy so he had the 34.7 unit that all the fhp seems to have that frquency gun.
i think that is incredible for me with the bel 995v picked up 34.7 so many miles away but with pop off and thats big here. when i went back a ways with my p[op on under same circumstances. i was notified almost a 1/4 mile to 1/2 mile less range on picking the signal of the 34.7 fhp up with pop engaged, i sufferred a well 30 percent range almost on the range at which my 995v picked the ka up vs. with the unit pop off workking 30 percent or morew farther and more constant.
ive been always a believer in using pop uintil i found out the significant range difference from pop on or pop off.
some say it doesnt matter, its only a hair difference., welll im telling from personal experience thati got 30 percent mre range on k and ka bands with pop off then with pop[ on. that summs that subject up as far as im concerned.
im just glad, only a handful of pop radar even exist in florida so yode have to be real unluck to get popped anyways. dr
