Im about to pull the trigger on a 9500ix. (yes, i know there are better long range detectors like redline, but i think for me the 9500ix is the best option)
I have been searching and reading thread after thread on here about false K and Ka alerts and cant seem to find the answers im looking for.
How do you spot falses on these bands? (i dont care about X, no one uses it here)
From my understanding, there are few, if any Ka falses. From my reading, i have learned that the Cobra detectors leak Ka. So, how do i tell if a Ka alert im getting is from a Cobra detector or another source?
does anyone have like a list of frequencies that will pop up on my detector on K and Ka band that are known falses? or a list of all the known true sources? it seems to me that since the display on the detector will show the frequency that i should be able to determine if its a true bogey or not.
im trying to learn how to use and read the detector, IMHO without knowing this, as far as im concerned, its probably just a useless piece of electronics hanging off my windshield.
i want to know how to use it.
thanks in advance for any and all info.
