In the town I live in and the surrounding ones it seems Ka band is only being used. I just bought a RD recently so I haven't taken it too far or into any big cities. K band seems to be used for the door sensors and what not although I have ran into one X-band that goes off near a hospital.
One of my questions is can state troopers be moving and shoot you with their radar if they are using Ka band? Is there a gun that does this, or do they have to be stationary?
Another question is since im only using the RD locally at the moment and Laser doesn't appear to be used, wouldn't I benefit from the RD being mounted up high instead of low? There are lots of hills in the area I live and the troopers travel it a lot. I think even a second more reaction time would be a benefit. Also I want to mount it up high so it will be concealed behind the rear view, so I don't have to pull it down in case an officer is behind me and sees it. Obviously I would run the wire along the trim and not straight down. Although it is not illegal to have an RD in my state, I'd rather keep it hidden anyways.
And finally, would I benefit from turning off the bands that are not used in my area? Would it speed up the RDs detecting time any?
