Man has it been quiet lately around here as far as radar action goes in my little part of NC- Well this morning I experienced SWS! I couldn't believe it, and since it appears to be my lucky day I stopped to buy a lottery ticket too!
I was driving southbound on US-1 towards Raleigh and received some sporadic K-band alerts with a 2-3 strength, and there was a Franklinton LEO following me about 3/4 mile back and shooting instant on trying to find a northbound customer.
All of a sudden I got a different alert, sounded a lot like a laser alert and it got my attention so I glanced at the detector. It was displaying CAUTION. I was passing two dump trucks hauling asphalt as this alert happened. Once I cleared the dump trucks the SWS alert ended and then I started receiving the low strength I/O K-band alerts from the LEO still behind me.
I assume the SWS out ranked the K-band alerts due to their low strength? Or possibly some of the k-band I was recieving was from the SWS and it took the detector a few seconds to decode and display the message?? This is my first ever experience with SWS, so I'm not sure how it works out on the Pro78. I do know if SWS is "off" it will just display as a k-band alert.
