Well, I finally got around to looking at the data from the Aug 2007
Radar detector test results and I'm kinda upset at the X50's
performance. It seems in every test the X50 always falls in the middle
and on some tests gets placed near the bottom. My biggest issue
is the KA (35.5) tests.... Charlotte, NC is now really starting to
move away from K band and their new guns consist of Kustom
Golden Eagles KA (35.5). When everything was K band my
X50 shined but this new 35.5 KA they have started to use in
greater numbers has really given me some close calls. It seems
everytime I have a KA (35.5) encounter I hardly get any warning.
Most of the officers are strictly using " Instant On " so this makes
the danger twice as dangerous where maximum sensitivity is key.
Would you guys recommend another detector for this new threat?
This almost full migration to KA (35.5) hads really got me worried.
