    Default Considering Radenso Pro Se to combat wicked 35.5Ghz Ka usage in Michigan areas.

    Considering Radenso Pro Se in my area to combat very, very deadly 35.5Ghz Ka usage. Getting very annoyed even using LNA's and getting last second responses to the 35.5Ghz threats. I mean they are saves on the 9500ix, the Uniden LRD950, and V1 but they are not anything to be proud of anymore, and honestly I am getting to a point where if I lose much more ground that save is going to turn into a citation. Not good. Hopefully soon I will have one of these in my arsenal once I get back to work here fighting kidney stones at the present moment and get a few pennies coming back in. Tired of fighting this loosing battle with 35.5Ghz ka. Does anyone know for sure if this can actually help in this regard. I mean yeah yeah yeah their website says so and alleged consumer based testers. Though whom is to say they aren't paid off by some under the weather company to say such things. So does anyone out there have any personal stories perhaps in the real world, out there in the battlefield to tell, or perhaps sway me here? I also don't care for the fact that a Radenso Pro Se does not, and I say again DOES NOT have a rear Lidar antenna. With lidar becoming that much more prevalent to an alarming rate really, and also becoming far more common to the rear. So not having a rear antenna for lidar seems to me a pitfall. A big one too. Not that it always works but I have certainly picked up scatter with bel/scort products and V1 to my rear in the past... So anyone got anything good out there? Please share.

    Alpine,

    I've driven with both the Radenso Pro SE and the new Radenso XP and I am actually preferring the XP over the Pro SE. My experiences suggest that the XP does fine on Ka--segmented 2,5,8--but does extremely good at filtering out K-band CAS systems and in a way that appears to me to have little impact on detection to real radar while being interfered with from these systems. The Pro SE is definitely a terrific unit, but I would suggest you give the XP a serious look.

    Thank you always for your unbiased opinions... Considering you have used both, how would you compare the Radenso XP to the Escort IX?

    Thank you, my pleasure.

    I've got to say that I am really enjoying the Radenso XP, I am finding it's ability to filter out/reject K-band CAS systems to be stellar, but even more importantly, it appears that the detection to genuine K-band CW isn't seriously hampered during the time it's being interfered with and I believe its better than the iX. X-band is noticeably weaker on the XP than the iX, but the XP laser is improved over the Radenso Pro SE.

    The GPS redlight database is not as complete as Escort's Defender and at least with my driving loop, it missed about 50% of the cameras relative to Escort.

    I find the XP's menu interface a little cumbersome and counter intuitive relative to the iX.

    Ka on the XP is very good and can be segmented and I really like the narrow K sweep settings on the XP. The amount of falses that reduces by running K narrow on the XP is significant and I haven't yet found a situation where detection to genuine K-band police radar was compromised.

    Overall, I really like the XP and I'd take the XP, especially if X-band is not an issue where you drive.

    I've owed Radenso a formal review for some time now, so I really need to get my butt in gear and finish it up!

    I sent in recently a compilation of my settings just to see if the manufacturer had any suggestion- never got a reply/ In the past if ask about setting I would get a quick reply making me think the guy really was interested in my communication but this time I got no answer- dunno !!!!!!!​ That's with the pro xe.

    Alpine-
    @alpinestars_2002795 have you thought about the new Uniden R3 which in recent testing has destroyed the venerable segged Redline 2/5/8. For $399.00, it's currently the hottest unit out there . I can't see the new M7 based Max360 ci doing much better than the R3 and the R3 is 1/9 the cost of the Max ci.

    The R1s and R3s do look impressive at first blush, but I must admit, I'm a little skeptical of the "hype."

    I vividly remember the initial fawning over the original Max and the Stingers...

    But definitely looking forward to testing an actual shipping production unit.
