Several years ago, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has allocated 13.45 GHz in the Ku band for traffic radar use in the United States. However, no radar gun manufacture has made a gun to use this frequency and there are only a select few radar detectors that have this band built into them.
This may all change in the next several months!
Through our sources in the police enforcement industry, a major police radar gun manufacture will be releasing a new Ku band radar gun to the US Market during the 2nd quarter of 2005!
This gun is going to be tested in the later part of January, for a law enforcement publication
As most US radar detectors do not have this frequency, many manufactures will have to scramble to include this new band!
The Beltronics RX65 and Vector 995 already come with this band, all one would need to do is activate it by going into the programming mode.
Most of Escort's products can be upgraded for the new threat.
It is going to be interesting the next six month to see how this new radar threat is going to play out in that; how many other radar gun manufactures are also going to include this band, and how the radar detector industry is going to respond!
