    Default Some K band and KA thoughts

    If I live in an are where LEO is only using K and KA band radar would you guys use the "U" Euro mode option? Or am I doing more harm then good with this?

    What is the REAL difference between a KA radar gun and KA photo radar? Is it the FREQUENCY only or the strength of the signal or both?

    Thanks!

    If you are in the USA, do NOT use Euro mode. In Euro, it will only scan for Ka photo radar at 34.3 GHz and MPH radar at 33.8 GHz. It will completely miss most of the Ka units used in the USA.

    Ka photo radar is generally weak and pointed away from the target, and is on a different frequency from the radar guns. To detect it with any amount of useful warning, sweeping Ka has to be restricted to only the frequency of interest, which is what Euro mode does.
