    Default My new V1 Ghosted today...

    Join the club right?? I was outside a known K band door sensor and got a bogey counter of two and a Ka alert. This is ghosting right? As far as I could tell there were no LEO's around, the Ka signal remained weak. What about a Cobra? Would this cause it? I have POP off.

    A nearby Cobra RD definitely is a possibility.

    x2, The V1 is normally rather good at promptly giving them the old J-out, but it doesn't always.

    v1 does show ka alert when you are very close to a k door.

    my 690 doesn't do this but v1 does on a known k door opener when i park it like 10 feet away from the sensor.

    That's not ghosting, it might a be a cobra, or it could the door drifting into the Ka frequency range.

    My V1 does exactly what you are describing. If I am close to a very strong K band source, sometimes I will get a false Ka band bogey. Before I sent it in to VR, it did this at almost every strong K band source. Now, it's only every once in a while.

    Mine does that on K band speed signs. I have 2 K band fixed speed signs going in both directions, and there's usually a cop shooting Ka in the middle of the road. I take that road everyday, go figure how frustrating it was for me. I may shot some vids to show...
    BTW I don't know about yours, but my V1 was a returned unit.

    Mine was a brand new unit. Since I sent it in to be fixed, it's not near as bad, but it's definitely not totally fixed.

    Thanks. This brings up another question, I have noticed that if the V1 is detecting a strong K band source and I get the Ka blip, the Ka blip goes away without a J out. Will the V1 J out if it is in the middle of detecting another alert.

    Thanks, DJ. Glad I am not the only one.
