    Default New detector

    My new rx65 will arrive tomorrow. I will review it and post findings this week. I am currentl using a bel 925 that I am happy with ( it is now mommas) Its range on ka in tulsa seems to be between 1/2 to 1.25 miles depending on conditions. What do you think my range increase will be?

    You'll see an increase but it won't be exponential.

    The probelm is the "maggots" keep tuning their gear down. They have the power on some of these OHP units down so low they trooper has to be right on top of you before he can pull the trigger.

    The good thing is if you are scanning way up the road you'll see him long before he even gets a chance...except at night.

    The last two times I've been stopped I was on the Cimmaron Turnpike at night. Never saw the bogie man. He Ka slapped me before I knew what happened.

    Also (since your from Tulseeeee!) watch out for OHP. I've had two or three encounters recently where they said they clocked me...they showed me a read out...but my detector never made a squeak. SCARY...very scary.

    The only advantage of living in a place where detectors are forbidden is they usually don't bother at all in trying to hide the radar...

    you know how much constant-on I encounter?

    Plus, I only have any encounters at all (with purposeful speedtraps) about once or twice a month... and I do lots of driving.
