1. ## Frequencys

Am I understanding the sticky correct that police radars use all Ka frequencys between 33.3 - 35.8. there is no way to destinguish between police and false based on the frequency that is being detected.

There is. If you have a RD with spec mode, you can usually identify if a Ka alert is a false or not. The three main police frequencies are 33.8, 34.7, and 35.5. On my 9500ci, if I get one of those frequencies (or a number that rounds up to one of them; ex: 34.685) I know it is real. Also, with spec mode you can identify Ka falses as well. Ex: Ka 33.6 usually comes from another cheap radar detector such as a Cobra:

Thanks. What about K and X?

Can't predict those with spec mode. For K band, some here will say that the closer the frequency is to 24.150 the greater chance it is an actual threat but from my experience, I've seen police K band radar hover all over the K band frequency range not just near 24.150.

well something is better than nothing

See my post in this thread i linked. These are frequencies ive recorded in areas i travel. This is by no means EXACTLY what you should expect wherever you are, but should be used by you to get an idea of the kind of variance LEO radar can have over the different frequencies.

K band cannot be distinguished by the frequency. While most LEO K band guns are closer to 24.150, you shouldn't use it to make assumptions. X band cannot be distinguished either, however X band is phased out in most parts of the country.

I have found in my area that when I get 24.148 and 24.151 right around there I know that he is somewhere but other than that it's hard unless you have gone by false and know the frequency.
