i was messing around with it and different positions tonight at work on my lunch, seeing if putting a liscense plate under it would increase range (it doesnt) messing with angles and such towards a k band door opener, when k band fully ramped up and down on its own, mind you it had already powered up
well on my way home tonight i was sitting at a stoplight and starting getting 3-4 strength ka band signal, a few seconds later about a quarter mile down the road i see a car with its headlights off round the curve in the road, a few seconds later a pd with its lights full blast round sthe curve behind him. as the officer rounded the curve and became visible strength went up to six.
my new 78 had me worried but this has definetly put my mind at ease. i still think it has horrible side detection range, although i suppose that cuts down heavily on falses on the highway. im wondering if when the unit ramped k band up and down on its own it somehow recalibrated the unit?
