    Default What is your typical range on ka band?

    I was just wondering what everyones typical ka range is on their detector on an interstate with flat terrain and light traffic. I recently got a bel v995 and finally got gunned with constant on ka from a stationary leo and it was 1.1 miles until I passed the unit. It was an undercover maroon colored Blazer of all things sitting on the opposite side of the interstate at night in the right side safety lane. Right after I passed the leo the unit decided to do a u turn in the police turn around and got up right beside me and passed my car. Eventually the leo stopped down the interstate a couple of miles and set up shop again near another police turn around to get ready to start gunning people again. All I can say is that my new detector saved my butt bigtime as I was doing close to 10 over the speed limit when my detector first alerted me.

    Typical range for my V1 is 1.8 miles if there are some slight hills. If the road has no hills I have had 4-5 miles warning on Ka band.

    Ditto for basically anywhere in the northeast. The roads are just to hilly and twisty.
