I can remember my first detector hardly. It was around 1990 when I was in Cleveland, Ohio. I bought it there, it was maybe an early Cobra model. It hasn't any laser sensor and it may detect X and K band only, looked similarly as Whistler 945Euro but worked well. When I'd returned to Hungary I was very proud of this top electronics equipment. After a few days I met with a speed trap - but my detector didn't do anything! I was very disappointed. After that I've ascertained that here isn't any K band radar, the Hungarian police used Sfim Mesta 204DD radars only at that time, and they were on 9.41GHz (special X band). Oh, that old good days!
Some years later the police bought K band radars but my detector was disappeard meanwhile.
I think that it would be interesting if we could collect some of old detectors. If you have any picture/info/story, please post it here!
