With V1......Pop on or off???
Do you have POP on or off???
Well I just turned POP Off today to compare K band and I found that with my K band radar gun it missed 2 quick triggers. I had to hold it for a second to get it to alert, then every quick trigger after that it got them all.
So I may turn it back on after my testing.
I think it has pretty well been established that less Ka band falsing occurs with POP off.
So less KA falsing occurs.......does it improve both K & KA performance? I've never seen anything to back this up. I have 3.851 and very little KA band falsing occurs for me here in St. Louis.

Unit would sometimes alert at bursts less than the above during POP OFF mode but not consistently enough.

I just turned POP back on yesterday. Going to drive around a bit to see if I get Ka falses.
I keep mine on since 2 villages around here have MPH Bee III units.
I drive though them just to get a pop from them, so far no luck.
POP on - don't get many Ka falses, occasional J's from Crapra's (1 every week or two).
My V1 is pre-POP, and I've not thought it was worthwhile to send it in to get the upgrade.
