    This is from my site:

    SWS - Safety Warning System
    Radar Roy calls it the SMS for show me a system! Innovative Technology Systems ( www.innovative-tech.com ) was formed to develop the Safety Warning Systems that were supposed to form part of the National Highway System. The idea was to have transmitters located on the highways that would transmit warning messages to approaching vehicles. The idea was brilliant, the follow through poor. Radar Roy knows of no police department or Highway Department that has ever purchased one of these transmitters. If you go to the company's website, the last update was made in October 2001. Someday this technology may be available, but for now don't let it influence your buying decision.

    There's a comprehensive list in the Speed Trap Info forum.

    http://www.radardetector.net/List-of...e-U.S-589t.php

    Florida uses Laser, Ka, K, airborn VASCAR, and POP.

    Some local departments down there may still use X, but most local departments are so heavy into speed traps that they've probably purchased far better equipment by now.

    They shouldn't still be using X band, if they want it to hold up in court.
