    Default NO cops in sight

    There are no cops in sight but my whistler 1733 radar beeps

    it beeps 2 times on X band and K band. Why is this

    Other devices share the same frequencies as police radar. Happens with any detector. Some false alarm sources

    Automatic door openers
    Alarm systems
    Some traffic light sensors
    Crappy radar detectors

    After a while, you'll just learn where the falses are and ignore them. Just be careful about ignoring anything until you're used to that detector.

    Very well said compu44.


    The last part is very important.... dont ignore to many alerts from your detector until you are used to it.
