Ok, i have driven from san Francisco to Modesto twice and Modesto to Frisco 3 times and I always get weird false alarms.
Driving from east to west, I start getting false alarms in Tracy that last almost to Oakland and get them on the way back East too. They are always K band. Sometimes behind me, sometimes in front. Sometimes they start week and get strong fast and sometimes they start at full strenth. They never last more than a few seconds. I've never experienced anything like this before (mostly driving in NH/VT/ME/MA). Does anyone else from this area experience this? It pretty much makes a radar detector useless since they happen so often and always force me to brake fast.
The first time driving from Tracy to Oakland I would have sworn there was a cop driving somewhere behind me using instant-on.
(Also, I did turn off my Srint cell phone and it continued to hapen)
The only thing strange about the area I guess is the large amount of Wind power and power lines, but these things are far gone before I get into Oakland. I have a V1 3.825 but it seems like it must happen with any detector.
