    Redline problems..

    So just recently my Redline has started acting up. When I first turn it on; sometimes it will give a full alert Ka and be stuck in it until I restart. I tried not restarting it once and it will even give off a second alert at times around 34.7 Ka and I drove about 20 miles like that just to see. After restart I've detected normal alerts in Ka but worried it may not be working sometimes. The settings I have it on is only Ka band alerts, POP on... I just recently turned POP off just to see. Anyone else ever had this hapen?

    I would call us to set up servicing it. That is not normal behavior.

    Here is a vid of mine acting up (I posted this before, but if you've not seen it, sounds similar to yours, but on Ka band - mine flipped out on K-band)
    It did this the next day, so I drove around the block a few times, same weak and bogus K alert. Sent it back, they fixed the antenna, so far good as gold since.

    mine does a full blazing alert non stop... I have video of it... I guess I can upload it later. I can't duplicate it though... just random, and only on start up. My only guess is initial calibration at start up is way off or something. I just need it fixed before my next trip in January... I can drive slow til then x.X

    Yeah, then it's time to send it to home base for repair. It's likely an antenna issue, IMHO.
