Iím sure many of you are sick of hearing that X band go off every time you are in the city or sometimes even on the highway. And Iím sure many others have turned off X band all together! Well Iím telling you right now; donít underestimate the power of x band.
Why you ask? Simple, even though 99.99% of cops donít use X radar there IS still a chance that some ARE. Well, I guess it depends on the area you live in, but itís mostly nationwide that most cops threw out the use of X radar.
I was driving down home one night when I got a very weak X band to stronger and stronger, before I know it thereís a car approaching me at a fast rate so I switched lanes and let him through, surely enough it was a cop, an undercover cop even. And to make things a bit iffier, he was using constant-on X band radar, he mustíve had that thing full-on because even when I couldnít see him far over a mile away X band was full on 9 strength signal. Surely enough it was the cop, I lost sight of him minutes after and my RD was full on 9 X band for MILES and MILES. I was amazed at the strength of his X band radar, I never caught up to him because he was speeding like crazy but my RD didnít stop screaming until I actually got off a ramp!
So in all, I wouldnít underestimate the power of X band, regardless of how useless it is to most cops. Itís surprising enough to see a few out there that do use it. Having it on surely saved me a ticket, because I WAS speeding until I noticed the weak X band and as it got stronger I changed lanes. A lesson to us all I guess.
