1. ## 35.5 Ka range

I've read a lot about how 35.5 Ka band is difficult to detect and the reasons why it is difficult to detect. My question is:

When a LEO is monitoring traffic, do you have to be closer to his radar gun for him to clock your speed than you would have to be for other Ka frequencies or K band to get a lock on you?

2. ## Having a 35.5 eagle talon ka band..

Having a 35.5 ghz Eagle Talon Ka Band gun. I'd say now the range of the gun is just as deadly as any other gun, although detection is very disturbing especially on the v1 off axis.

This is the radar sensitivity test done on a few radar detectors. The higher the number of dBs, the greater the sensitivity to that band or frequency of radar. X band is always the easiest to pick up followed by K band and then Ka band so your range will be less with Ka band particularly 35.5 Ka band.

4. If I'm reading this chart correctly, it implies that most detectors are more sensitive to K band than X band? I've always found X band easiest to detect. Shall I assume it's because it diverges more at any given distance than the other bands?

Actualy X band has a very short clock in range, It's just the X band beams are so unfocoused they spread out all over the place, thus making it very easy to detect. K band is slighly more focoused but still is a wide beam. 35.5 Ka and other Ka are very directional radar witch makes it harder to detect.

6. haven't a lot of manufacturers also reduced sensitivity on X-band to cut back on falses?
