Thread: Short Ka Burst?

  1. #1

    Default Short Ka Burst?

    A cop using Instant on? I didn't see a cop but I got a short burst of Ka 5 on my RX65...

    Thanks,
    Trav

    most likely...could have been hiding somewhere where you couldn't see, or clocking people going the other way.

    I've seen some sneaky cops around here. Sometimes they will hide in the median overgrowth and you can only see the single red beacon on top (State police). You really have to look sometimes...

    It was my local town on a 40 MPH zone, funny thing is the CHP have their building right there, can they pull over in a local city?

    RX65 set to City mode, perhaps less sensitive in that mode?

    Wow, i get these "Ka" bursts sometimes on my V1, and i *never* see where the cop is..dunno..maybe he's somewhere deep deep in the bushes, but i can never seem to spot him, lol.

    Sometimes you will get a Ka false, but they are very rare. Most of your Ka falses will be leaky RF from other cheap detectors to your rear or coming towards you in the opposite lane. My Cobra used to Ka false in some shopping malls, but the V1 seems to have better filtering for this.

    especially at night it's hard to see. i'd be cool if someone invented a heat sensor for consumer use... a cop would be easy to spot at night then.

    It happened again near my school, I IDed it as a black cruiser, a local cop.
