    Re: Ground waves?

    How true that is. I rarely speed, at most over 5 mph over the PSL and people ask why I use a detector. I explain that my last speeding ticket was due to a non-calibrated gun and instead of fighting...

    Re: Ground waves?

    When I first read this post I noticed the term "ground wave" used in a slightly wrong manner - ground waves travel along the Earth's surface while sky waves travel up into the ionosphere and are then...

    Ham man - I agree. When I go on a site for the Kenwood 71A radio, it seems everyone is concerned with programing software and not being able to program the radio manually. I spent the time and...

    My guess is that he was using a RD with no way near the range of the V1. Or his RD was malfunctioning on that band or positioning of the mounts were different, etc.

    As to the possibility of...

    N.A. - That may be true in some cases but these warning devices (if existing) would (I think) only be detected for short distances - certainly not those such as I and others have experienced. For...

    Re: V1 False Alerts from Tractor Trailers

    Usually, when my V1 goes off due to another (Cobra) detector, the signal disappears at about 100 feet to up to 100 yards. Any further and I suspect the causing vehicle is running a radar jammer. I...

    Re: Detector Denmark

    The Valentine V1 does have a Euro Mode user setting that would probably cover your needs plus its one of the two top of the line RDs for performance but the cost is $399 but well worth the money.
