    Default NC Highway Patrol are they using something new?

    Was on 540 today and saw the a state police car sitting in the medium. I wasn't going all that fast so of not a major concern but I only got a short Ka beep on my Valentine One unit then after I passed him I go got another short weak Ka beep. I thought this was odd. I heard there are new radar modes coming out, just wondering if anyone know if those have been rolled out here in NC.
    If I am going to upgrade I want to make sure I get the one I need
    thanks

    Hemi Challenger? WOW. I bet that puppy puts you in the back seat on floor. 2SS here. It's always fun to see those guys before they see you. As a ham radio operator, I understand fully line of site and reflection of signals. If you ever have a half hour to kill find a speed trap and aim your car toward it while just sitting in a lot. It's a real learning experience you'll cherish!

    Great story!

    As for "new gun modes" it's more likely your V1 is old (over 10 years). Try an updated V1 Gen 2, or better yet a Uniden R3 or 7. Either way, they're more sensitive and tuned to any new stuff.

    Can't see the video, but guess a 35.5 low power pointed the other way with no reflections but it makes one wonder sometimes, happens rarely.
