I'm new to the forum and not sure if this has been discussed ops: . I recently purchased my first RD - the PRO 78. While driving on freeways in the San Jose area, I've been getting K and Ka but can't see an LEOs and it's been driving me a little crazy :? . It wasn't until today that I figured out what's happening.
I'm sitting in traffic and I start getting a K band alert. With a lot of time to look around, I see what I think is a radar gun on a light pole, about 30 feet in the air, with a solar panel feeding it power . I'm not sure, but I think this is how the local news determines the traffic speed for TV. Driving about 3 miles down the freeway, I get another alert. Sure enough, another radar gun mounted on a light pole. All in all, I counted five of them on my way home - they are all over the place . Is this a common problem? Besides buying an Escort 9500i, is there anything that will help?
