Old dogs can learn new tricks.
I've run V1s off and on since Mikey invented it back in 92 and thought I knew it like the back of my hand. Well, after 18 years I just got around to playing around with the K-Band automuting features on my most recent purchase from Valentine.
Heh Heh Heh.........what a fantastic option set! I've always liked the mute lever setup on the V1, but you don't fully appreciate it unless you delve into the K-Band mute options! How nice to drive through town and have the normal weak K-Band falses report at muted levels right from the get-go while having Ka alerts set at full volume.
If you haven't already, take advantage of these features...........you'll really appreciate how much more pleasant it is to drive through town.
