    Default Sending the V1 for an upgrade

    I have the 3.824

    The "J"unk feature really bothers me, it has junked out real cops 3 times and I have had the radar for 2 weeks.

    I will upgrade to the 3.825 and I hope it fixes it and the K auto mute

    Anyone have the 3.825? Ane feedback on this?

    3.825 is supposed to address both of those issues, from what I've read, so sending it in sounds like a good plan.

    That's odd. 3.824 was supposed to fix the false-junk problem. If 3.824 still alerts to "J" on real radar, there's a good chance that 3.825 will, too. Personally, I haven't seen it happen but I also haven't encountered much in the way of Ka band radar since I upgraded. Just a lot of Ka band Cobras ops: .

    That is correct. People were still getting the bug with 3.824. I think Happy@$$ has 3.825 now. JTW spoke with Mike V. on this issue, and 3.825 fixes the K band mute problem AND the Junking problem. As far as I know, all known bugs are fixed with 3.825.

    Huh. I guess I'm confused now. Was an update made on 3.825 that further addresses the junking problem? Or did it just carry over the original 3.824/3.819 fix and add the K-band muting fix? Because if it just carries over the same false-alarm guard program and 3.824 does still, in fact, junk-out real Ka hits, then 3.825 will still junk-out real Ka hits and it might not be worth sending it back for a firmware update.

    I think we need a VR tech to help us out. And I need to see if I can find someone running Ka band radar.

    That's what i'm wondering also.
    I guess it's time for another email to VR.
    Anyone here have 3.825 that can test the junk issue?

    What happen if MPH or someone gets the idea to put a little oscillator at 11.5GHz on their Ka radars? :shock:
