Alright I'm very confused. My 3.826 was a great detector with Ka here in dover with an AVG of 1 mile or 2. However since upgrading to 3.851 it seriously sucks. I've gotten the "E" twice and the bad thing it does not alert you that it has displayed the "E" it just sets silent. So I have mine mounted high and if I'm zoning out I won't even notice it.
Ever since I have upgraded to 3.851 every encounter with Ka here in DE it acts like instant on. However I find this hard to belive, a week ago I was driving and I notice a state car up ahead that had a customer. I'm thinking no biggie his radar is not on. So as I drive by right when I get parrallel with his car I get a strong spike of Ka coming from the rear *meaning he was running his front antenna*. I know it was not instant on because there was no one else in the car. And the trooper was talking to his customer.
Today I am coming back from the beach when again I visually see the cop car, slow down then get a full alert.
This is quite odd that DE would upgrade to instant on equiptment the same time I get my 3.851.
Is there any type of digital Ka band that is just crazy hard to detect?
I'm wishing I still had my 3.826!
