I have located a K band radar speed trailer along side of the road near where I live. If I set my trip back and drive towards the sign will it give me an accurate measurement of distance I can get from my X50? I have read in several posts that the signs are less powerful then a normal Leo radar gun.
I decided to drive by the sign a few times and here are my results.
The K band radar trailer is positioned on top of a hill around a curve.
Also, there is a hospital .07 of a mile which causes a K false.
The 1st time through I was in city / expert mode. The City filtered out the K false and as I approach I begin picking up the sigh at .02 of a mile away. Remember this is around a corner and positioned on top of a hill.
The second approach I switched to Highway / expert mode. The Highway did not filter the K and I received the false for a second or two then it went away. After this, I started to receive the Sign at .03 of a mile.
I guess these number are Ok when you consider it's not a real LEO and geographical layout. What really gets me is why I didn't get 2 bars of K in expert Mode since there was a false in the area. Another thing that has me wondering is I though City mode only filtered X band. It's kinda strange the K false didn't occur in City Mode.
