Was looking at Rat Shack's website. The "In-store Clearance" has the XTR-195 for $19.97. So I figured what the hell. For the money, it's a pretty cool toy. Before you bust my chops, I know it isn't the best rd out there, but it does work. It is battery powered, came with rechargable batteries, charges while plugged in and doesn't "go to sleep" (cycle power) even when on batteries. That's more than I can say about the Solo, for $300+. The clerk discouraged my purchase. But I told him that it was WAY better than any of their sorry Cobras. He looked puzzled. Then tried to sell me the Bel 995. I told him I already have an X-50. He said "oh, OK". It does fairly well on K-band. Haven't had any Ka encounters yet. Not holding my breath though.
