So maybe i got lucky, but i got the longest ka (35.5) MSP alert i've ever had with any detector i've owned and i've owned the best. It had to be at least 4 miles, around bends and turns in the freeway, i was picking it up and then dropping it then picking it up and dropping it, then it locked on and i couldnt believe that it was that far and sure enough on the other side of the freeway there was a truck MSP officer doing is daily tickets to semi's. But on another note the k band stinks so far on this model...kind of dissapointed but if i had to pick id rather have sick ka range
I have ka max mode on btw! Love this detector.
