Just really wanted to introduce myself to the forum, I looked for a few minutes to where the introduction forum was but didn't see it. Just recently picked up a used Valentine v1 for a pretty great price, it is v1.8 rev3.858 with pop upgrade. I been reading around the forum for about an hour now and I did not know there was this much information on the radar, a bit overwhelming at first. Been wanting this expensive radar for years now from my heavy foot driving habit and now I finally got one. I have yet to reprogrammed it, but I have been reading the k-band programming for newbies, turning off x-band/pop and all the goodies. Hope to have a great stay here I'm a big forum freak.
