i am somewhat new here, and i remember when i first got my detector and came to the forums here, i asked what the range on detectors were.
and i got some replys back saying anywhere up to 1.5 even 2 miles or more in some cases. when i heard that, i totally didnt believe that i could get a reading from that far away. but....i was coming home the other day and i get a medium "X" band alert. that is already weird, i live in central oregon, and ive had my detector for about maybe 5 months or so and havnt had a single "X" band alert (except for falses). anyways, after slowing the **** down and looking around for anything that could possibly set off an "X" band alert, i finally realized the it wasnt a false, another mile or more maybe down the road, the cop FINALLy passed me.
i just thought id share my story with the rest of you.
