    Does anybody know what band of radar WSP uses around here? I've personally only seen PL3s used and nobody in my local area uses X band so I want to turn it off. But I don't want to do that until I confirm what band WSP uses, which is hard because I don't see them very often.

    WSP uses K and Ka. They pretty much only use it while moving though. At least in the puget sound area they use lidar almost exclusively for speed traps. I've only seen one WSP officer using radar for a stationary speed trap in the last 3 years, while I've seen around a hundred lidar traps in that time.

    I've had X turned off for the last four years or so and have never had a problem because of it.
