    Default Where can I find what radar units are used near me?

    As it seems LE agencies register with the FCC for each band of radar used... is there any way to check/confirm state by state what types of radar are in use?

    I'm guessing all bands are registered in evey state... but I'm trying to decide if its reasonably safe to turn off my X band on my Passport 8500 X50. I've never yet come across an X band signal (that I've noticed) in Washington that was traffic radar related.

    Thanks,

    Mike H

    Default X Band

    Well the only state to have written in their puchase contract for X band in New Jersey. Ohio also has afew of X band Light bar mounted units.

    In Washington State, I would feel comfortable turning off X band

    So it's a purchsing contract versus a declaration of use to the FCC.

    I must have misunderstood. I'll do some more research and post if I can find anything.

    Default Choice

    If I don't know any officers in a certain area, and I want to know what type of units they use, I call the traffic bureau and say that I am working on a research paper. They normally tell me everything I need to know..
