Thread: Ku band

  1. #1

    Default Ku band

    I just got my new Valentine One yesterday ver.3.826 :mrgreen:

    I know that ku is not used in the USA yet but how does it light up on the detector if theres no led for it?

    Subtle.

    K alert tone, no led, and little period (dot) on the bogey counter.

    Very easy to confuse with K-band.

    Personally, I believe, a double x-band tone, would be an improvement to help differentiate the tones.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Ku Band easier to detect than K band?
    It falls between X & K in the frequency spectrum.

    Seems to me that it's like backpedaling for the police to make their radar EASIER to detect. (or are there dozens of usable frequencies they can choose from making it difficult to find?)
