I think it's about time to send my v1 in for a tune.
I got this 3.872 new from VR nearly 1 year ago. I think its been 11 months or so.
Lately, its been unimpressive on K-band. It hasn't failed me, but it seems to be picking up my usual falses a little later than normal. This particular V1 has never been as good as my 3.864 was on K-band. I sent it back to VR once about the issue and was told that my V1 runs a little hot on Ka band. They told me that all their detectors run about 1db hotter on either Ka or K band, and offered me a different unit that was hotter on K. I of course told them I'll keep my current unit. Is this a BS claim by VR?
But, I think the K needs attention. Is 1 year the typical time people NEED a tune? I know we hardcore enthusiasts say 1 year is ideal, but surely I would think some people run them for years with no tune. ??? I don't trust my v1 right now
