    Default A call to all Forums users to stop propagating X-band myth.

    http://www.radardetector.net/Got-Hit....-1086t.php Is the most recent account I've seen of X-band used outside of Ohio or New Jersey.

    I think its time that we stop repeating the myth that xband is only used in those two states... because every time I hear it stated, the statement seems more and more absolute.


    I belive the first time I read the statement it said that those two states are the only two known to have widesperead use of Xband. This does not mean however that they are the only two states xband is used in.

    So, please folks.... when people talk about or ask about xband, don't give them the same tired old party line about ohio and new jersey, I just don't think its true anymore....

    yup, little "po-dunk" cities that cant afford the equiptment usually use x band still. I personally havent been hit with it then again I dont drive to much other then work and back.

    Good post, maybe people will read it and figure out that no matter the state, some cities do use X band still.

    Well, I think the problem is people have read the x-band info and interpret it as Xband does not exist outside of certain states... which is not the case. There may be a lower risk, but its always there.

    If they interpret it wrong, let em find out the hard way. I dont think you can read this thread wrong. If they still believe X is only in those 2 states, let em. They can find out the hard way

    Default x band

    with it being the first radar band its going to be the last to get made obsolete reason is with it being old and as people would normaly think its ''faded out'' they are wrong the reason is the fact that people think its not used anymore.. or its used so little that they either turn off or ignore x band alerts !

    this is a bad idea because with this in mind the police will route out their old equipment and do the calibration tests and then start using it again!

    people wont be expecting this band to come back into use!
    the result people with radar detectors get caught!

    in the uk some manufacturers have made some new traps on x band!
    this has supprised many motorists! they all said i thought that band wasnt used!!

    by the looks of it... its making a come back!

    Definitely.

    JTW posted in another thread that he had sent X radars to some smaller departments in Maryland and another state (Maryland sticks out for me since I live here).

    I leave X-band turned on and acknowledge it if the need arises.
