    Default V1 Just Paid For Itself TODAY!!!!

    This morning I am driving to work on the freeway where I never get any alerts. And I stat getting intermittant Ka mid strength alerts...arrow ahead.
    So I start looking at oncoming traffic...nothing. I start looking way up ahead on the freeway nothing. I start getting more alerts so I slow down and get in the right hand lane. More alerts...still see nothing. Then I start looking down the onramps with my side view mirrors. On the second onramp..BINGO!!! A motorbike CHP was at the bottom and right up against the bushes. You would never be able to see him unless you were in the right lane going slow and LOOKING. Soon as I passed him I got a rear arrow signal and that was it.

    COOOOOOL............

    It definately is possible. If the Ka radar was smack in the center of the band, you can detect it quite a ways out.
