Today took a nice day trip from Raleigh to Hickory, NC to visit some family. Drove about 15mph above PSL for most of the day, utilizing rabbits of course, and making sure I was never 1st in line!!
Had a few Ka 35.5 encounters with NCSHP and one encounter with a protable K-band speed sign in a construction zone in Winston Salem.
First SHP encounter, he was running vascar from an on-ramp...I scrubbed off speed in a hurry before that second painted line!!
Second SHP encounter, I was travelling back on EB I-40 and got a few weak Ka alerts, and approxmately 0.4 miles later full blast IO. He was running west bound. Plenty of time to get to PSL!
Third encounter with SHP...not so good! I was running in the center lane, with a car about 4 car lengths ahead camped out in the fast lane. Had a pack of cars about 2000' in front of us. Thought that was sufficent bait out in front...WRONG! We approach a clump of trees in the median, and all of a sudden a Trooper is hidden behind the far end, and as soon as I see him...full Ka blast! Not even enough time to brake....I glance over and he has a cell phone up to his ear, so by pure luck he must of had better things going on and chose not to hang up on whoever he was talking to!!! I HATE INSTANT ON!!!!! For some reason he didn't hit the pack of cars ahead, maybe due to having too many to sort out. Or maybe dialing his cell phone and we were the first cars he hit...anyway, my lucky day. The only thing that would have saved any detector in this encounter would be a vehicle invisability mode!!!
Fourth and final encounter was with a K-band speed sign. Received my first alert at 0.9 miles in moderate traffic. It was setup in a construction zone. The Pro78 impressed me on this one. Even my wife was impressed, if anything can get her attention away from reading...you know something is up!
That was it, fun day trip with the Pro78 on duty! Also found gas at $2.81/gal!!!!
