    it is kind of the same thing. Ka frequency was at first approved by the FCC at a set range. Then a few years later the FCC approved a lot more frequency range for Ka making the spectum huge. That is what the super wide band Ka is.

    Ka is usually the most difficult to detect because the detector has to scan the super wide Ka range.

    In the 1980's came the Ka for photo radar, and some portable units. With it came the Wideband Ka detectors. (as Ka was wider than X or K).

    Then around 1995 came Superwideband, as guns came out that operated throughout the Ka band as the FCC now allowed them to operate through all of Ka, which is very very wide!

    Yeah, the photo radar operated at 34.3 GHz, so detector makers added Ka band.

    Then, the Stalker Ka was introduced, so detector makers added "wideband" Ka (34.2 - 35.2 GHz) to cover the Stalker

    Then when the Ka BEE (35.5 GHz) was introduced, they added "superwide" Ka that covers the whole 33.4- 36.0 range.
