    Default Veil Guy's V1 Sweeps Recommend for Improved Performance in the Field

    Spent months experimenting and have arrived at the following config.


    Here's what I have found works really well, so far in my experiences, over the standard recommend 100mhz+- widely used sweeps recommended by VR and standard "oversweeps" similar to others:


    I call my profile, CENTER WEIGHTED INTERLEAVED SWEPT PATTERN:


    S0: 33.768-33.900 (wide, default, always engaged)
    S1: 34.681-34.740 (tight, center weighted)
    S2: 35.482-35.541 (tight, center weighted)
    S3: 33.782-33.841 (tight, center weighted)
    S4: 35.394-35.600 (wide)
    S5: 34.774-34.804 (wide)
    S6: 34.593-34.770 (wide)



    Note: Sweeps S4-S6, can be widened if one wishes to expand inclusion of guns further out of center.


    Order may (haven't definitively proven to myself that it has) have a positive impact and is designed (at least, theoretically) to maximize the opportunity of the V1 to catch very brief glimpses of Kal, Kam, and Kah each. From an overall timing sequence order may not be significant, but I am trying to afford the V1 the best opportunity to be in the neighborhood when a signal comes along by interleaving them. All I can say is that I see a definite pop in liveliness overall with the above pattern. 33.8 now consistently bests all my seg'd M3s. 34.7 often enough to notice. 35.5 not seen enough (in my areas) to make a definitive determination either way (but expect it would improve).


    Misc Options:


    Self mute logic: ON
    Time Period: 3
    No muting above 3 on first alert: ON
    Unmute above 5: ON
    K Rear Mute: ON
    Out of box muting out 100mhz centers on Ka: ON
    Traffic Monitor Filter: ON (to filter out obnoxious K-band Audi-like systems for those requiring K reception).
    Other bands ON (as required for area), except Ku.



    The idea with these sweeps is that I am weighting towards guns closer to their spec'd centers of 33.8, 34.7, 35.5 (which I see far more often than out of "tune" guns). I am also experimenting with swapping S5 and S6 (because that original breakdown came from the unit itself when it split the sweep in two). I am also going to experiment with swapping positions of S5 & S6 with S4, to balance out the last two Ka sweeps a bit more.


    I've been quite happy with these and hope you find your V1C wakes up a bit more with the above settings (or slight variations of).


    VG


    PS: I'll be very interested to hear what others using this profile find (relative to their previous configs), especially where 35.5 rules (something I don't see as often as the others in my typical driving areas).


    Now that I saw this profile in black-and-white, I am going to balance out even more the interleave to this:


    S0: 33.768-33.900 (wide, default, always engaged)
    S1: 34.681-34.740 (tight, center weighted)
    S2: 35.482-35.541 (tight, center weighted)
    S3: 33.782-33.841 (tight, center weighted)
    S4: 34.593-34.770 (wide)
    S5: 34.774-34.804 (wide)
    S6: 35.394-35.600 (wide)



    May not make much of a noticeable difference (if any), but I prefer the more balanced look of this one.


    Good luck to those who will venture trying them.


    Early V1 owners who been actually trying these or slight variations believe the are seeing improvements. It only take a minute to set the profile up. Give it a try, you might find it works for you too.

    No need to sweep for 33.8 VG, it's redundant. I'd stick to 34.7 and 35.5......,

    PC, notice the first sweep which catches 33.8 is designated "S0". This indicates it is the V1's base sweep in Euro Mode. Sweeps 1 through 6 are what we are allowed to customize. I know, the way he's got it shown is a bit confusing and it caught me too at first.

    Veil Guy, any current updates on your testing to report? Thanks.

    I found the following from VG's recent comprehensive review of the V1. I wonder if this represents VG's "latest and greatest"?

    Question for you... is the following sweep profile that I gleaned from your comprehensive V1 review the latest and greatest that you're using?

    Veil Guy Custom Sweep

    Sweep 1: 34.666-34.740 (tight, center weighted)
    Sweep 2: 35.467-35.541 (tight, center weighted)
    Sweep 3: 34.774-34.833 (tight, 2nd half of wide)
    Sweep 4: 35.364-35.615 (wide)
    Sweep 5: 34.666-34.740 (tight, center weighted, repeated)
    Sweep 6: 34.563-34.770 (wide)

    Yes. This is the setup I settled upon.

    Not at this point. I've been looking at the new Passport and Max2 from Escort lately.

    HNY everyone. I've been running VGs sweeps for the past three months. FWIW, the V1C is a great unit, BUT it STILL gets it proverbial a** kicked by my Swept Redline and Stir-O. SO my update is with regard to VGs sweeps on my V1C is that nothings changed

    Ideally you want some narrow and some wide to be safe, no need for any 33.8 unless you know its used near you and the one forced 33.8 sweep is not enough.

    Generally any sweeps you make are fine if they are based around 34.7, 35.5 ect... I get impressive range with these:



    I did a full review of V1C and there is a lot of discussion about it here:

    What freqs are you seeing when the V1C is getting spanked? And by how much? Would you kindly elaborate on the circumstances?
