    Does any one know the exact frequencies of the different radar bands??
    X, K,KA, KU and laser have a 995 going to use the tech mode just wanted to make a little cheat sheet to know if I was getting radar or a false alarm.

    Anything your detector alerts to could potentially be police radar, otherwise they would simply block those freqs out. Generally there is no way to determine a false based 100% on the freq.

    X Band = 10.525 GHz +/- 25 MHz
    K Band = 24.150 GHz +/- 100 Mhz
    Ka (Stalker) = 34.7 Ghz
    Ka (MPH) 33.8 GHz
    Ka (Kustom/Decatur) 35.5 GHz

    If you see anything outside these areas, it is either police radar that has "drifted" or on Ka it could be a false from another detector.

    Or, for a bigger list:

    That list was very helpful Jim. Thank you. I have one more question to ask of you: can you tell me what freq a MPH and a Kustom signals K band gun would run on? I have been getting some 24.200 ~ 24.190 and would like to know what I'm up against.

    K band is only and always on one freq. K Band = 24.150 GHz +/- 100 Mhz

    Just remember the +/- 100 Mhz, it does tend to go off course. Go by your usual K band falses with your X50 in tech mode and it will differ.

    Thanks for the imput but I just realized I made an error. I meant I needed freqs for Decatur/Kustum KA and just K for the MHP stuff. My mistake.

    Wow, cool info. I'll have to put my new X50 in Spec mode when I'm on the highway, so I can find out what brand of Ka gun our staties use. 8)

    Ya its awesome. It just now occurred to me that Ka guns run on different frequencies that can distinguish themselves by brand. My Staties run on 34.7 Stalkers and my hometown cops use 35.5 (all their guns are out of calibration because I get stuff at 35.660 ~ 35.300) Kustum signals Golden eagles.

    I just had my first Ka encounter with my new X50 and as luck would have it, I had it in Spec Mode at the time. It showed 34.7 GHz. So it would appear our staties' new Ka guns are Stalkers.
