Hey, I currently own a Whistler 1744d and have noticed around my neighborhood an increase of LEOs using 35.5 ghz ka band. The 1744 seems to only be able to pick it up around 50 feet away when it is shot at short range. The GOL test indicated that the Pro 78 faired much better against 35.5 ghz ka band and i was thinking about upgrading to it. Does anyone have experience with a Pro 78 vs Ka 35.5 ghz on the streets? the cops in my area (memorial villages) seem to have gone 35.5 ghz ka band crazy :[. Also, has anyone gotten good laser alerts from their pro 78? i cant find any reviews on the Pro 78 laser detection. My 1744 seems to be quite weak at picking up laser, which I expected from a lower end model. I know laser detection is useless without additional countermeasures, I have applied laser veil and use a license plate cover. Thanks for the help.
