    Default X band IS IN USE in NYC area

    FYI -

    Ran into an NYPD parked on the Bronx River Parkway Northbound, running constant-on X band yesterday, 1/28/06.

    PS, this was just before exit. 7

    Do you know if X band is used in UP state NY?

    I haven't seen it, doesn't mean it's not there though. Read the other threads about it. Even if it was here in Upstate, I probably would still run my detector with it off. I went around in the State Park around Saratoga, since I heard the State Park Police use it, but the X went off like crazy (false). Didn't see any of them using it either. I should have written down what guns they use though, since I walked by a parked one.

    Default Once..

    Got a hit once by my parents, was a Saratoga County car, using instant-
    on X to see if people were stopping 'enough' for a 4-way stop sign.

    In my experience, NYS Troopers use Ka, Laser, and K, in that order, and usually Saratoga County and Warren County LEOs use K and Ka.

    Sorry for the bad news

    I've seen them using Ka and Laser usually, this was my first real X experience in the NYC metro area, that I'm aware of... could be they're taking some hints from NJ.

    Really though... I live in CNY, and I have never found, nor talk to an LEO using Xband, so I feel confident (at least in my area) I wont encounter X-band.

    Would the cop tell you what band on radar hes using if you ask? or we would he say "NOYB"

    If you call him/her 'officer' and it was a relaxed situation...most would. I know a few of them and they all tell me without hesitation. I have also chatted with a few I didnt know and they had no problems telling me what brand and band they ran.
