    Default VR says, regarding 3.825:

    Just figured I'd pass it along since I always like reading what other people receive from Escort/VR. Of particular interest is the first item, imo.

    I understand that there is some sort of K-band filtering built into "l" mode with the 3.825 software revision. Is this truly "filtering", or is it some sort of default automute such as the one we have had available via programming for quite some time?
    VR: It is filtering and is not some sort of default automute. (He also said it's filtering as it "always was," which was somewhat odd, given the V1s noisy reputation.)


    I have yet to see proof of this, but I've read in a couple of places that the "J problem" that flawed .821 and .824 has not been fixed; since I have a 3.821, should I wait on some sort of post-.825 revision for an update?
    VR: There have been other complaints like this, and they're currently working on reproducing it in the lab.


    Are there currently any plans for a "v1.9" with new features (interface, options, what have you?)
    VR: We're always working on new things, but I know of nothing new around the corner.

    thanks for sharing that.
    yeah, i noticed that they tend to sometimes say things that make you go hmmm.....


    Sadly VR doesn't share any of this unless someone asks them, then we all have to piece mill the info together.

    I have had only one continuous Ka radar cancelled out by the J since my V1 was upgraded to 3.825. Maybe VR should rig up a mobile lab with a scope and take the research on the road. Neither of my V1"P"'s J-ed out an alert sitting on the bench here at home. :wink: I'm guessing that during a moderate to strong Ka encounter, the V1 is having to sift through a lot of direct and reflected signals of varying strengths and frequencies and possibly somewhere in all that mess, the DSP decides that something resembles a blip from a junk detector, so here comes the J.
