    In a very small town on the NC/SC border

    Default Sure was impressed

    I had just purchased my XTR 695 last week. I've had a pro78 for a while now and was generally happy with it's performance, but was concerned about off axis detection. There have been a couple of times when I've gotten very little warning with it. I had always wondered if the LEO's around my small town were using the hard to detect 35.5 band.

    I really didn't think I would get a good chance at picking up a warning any time soon with my XTR, especially at 6:00 in the morning when I'm making my way to work. The town I live in is so small I don't get one false signal on my way to and from work...ever! However, this morning the XTR chirped.

    It was dark and as soon as it alerted, I looked up only to see car lights rounding the bend ahead. I thought "Hmmm...that sure wasn't much of a warning..." and eyed the car as it passed. Well guess wasn't a LEO. Just as I determined that, another set of car lights came around the bend. Aha! This was hot one. I probably had 4-5 seconds warning on a 55 mph winding road. When I did remember to look at the XTR's display to see what frequency was in use, I saw in the glow of of the display .... 35.5 ........

    So, all in all, this detector did give me enough warning in the event I had to govern my speed. I also learned when Ka chirps on my Pro 78, I probably don't have a lot of time before I discover its source.

    Safe travels everyone...

    Thats pretty good for 35.5 since it is hard to detect. My Pro 78 has served me well
