Got a laser save ! (left radar on)
I was traveling north bound on our loop 289 and started to get Ka. With it being around 5pm i knew the motorcades are working the loop with there Lt1 ultralytes. Keep in mind our 15 cycle officers wrote 40,000 tickets last year ! I got about a mile alert on Ka when i came up on the officer nailed me with laser right as i just came up over the overpass ! I actually got a laser alert ! But the genius was so busy he left his 35.5 on and thats what saved me from the laser trap. I'm saving for a laser jammer ! Most idiots here have cobras so i'm sure there Ka never went off.
I had a similar experience the other day.
Driving RT2 west between Westminster and Gardner in light traffic, I received a K band in an area I do not normally receive an alert.
About 1 mile later I saw the trooper ourside his vehicle in the drizzling rain shooting Laser at me.
Had he not left his radar on, I would have been going 10 over PSL but because I received a K band alert 1 mile earlier, I just smiled as I drove by him going the PSL.
How far away did he hit you from? How do you have your detector mounted? At what angle and location? What Car?
I don't think they care about nailing detector users specifically... They most likely do it to pinpoint a specific car when their radar reads some high speed.

I know this doesn't have to do with Rd's but my car has been hit 4 times in 6 months all not my fault accidents. Do u think i should trade it off? Bad luck? 3 of the times it has been hit on the same side. I'm always avoiding wrecks and i don't speed but 10 over and i'm not a aggressive driver.
I was running an XTR-695 prototype.
Before anyone asks, I did not have the LSID feature on so I do not know what he had for a PPS rate.
I did have my Ka RSID on but I did not encounter any Ka radar that day.
Unit was on the windshield just above the wipers.
As soon as I crested the hill he shot me.
I had been doing the speed limit for the last 3/4 mile because he left his K band radar on.
