    Couple New Detections - Short Range

    ...slow on reactivity. The thing I hate the most (after K/Ka mix) is the fact that if I have currently BSM detection (FDSr is ON and showing changing ####), and I get a real alert - most of the time that alert stays muted as well, and if I do not keep an eye on the display, I wouldn't even know...

    CR 97 Auto Filter Speed questions

    ...TFSR/City beep mode and liked knowing this is the best the 97 can do for ka. It still got a ka bsm. No eyeball on LEO. Upped it to xk 2 to see if that stops the mis ids with FSDR, I may raise xk up more or maybe even shut off K. I do find FSDR will push the ka bsms to ### after a second or 2.

    Can't run FSDr, almost got a ticket!

    I had an Acura yesterday triggering false alert (I have FDSr ON), so it alternating between K band with #### and Ka 33.8. It was pretty annoying...

    Can't run FSDr, almost got a ticket!

    ...picked up a CR 97, was running TSFR off X/K 3 Ka1 Max ID, and FSDr on, was traveling next to a Subaru Forester, alerted to BSM two beep with FSDr #### and then quieted down as normal, then I noticed it would switch to Ka 33.8, with no alert, still muted on FSDr, I assumed it was the well...

    ...Max not engaged/City Mode/volume 1 or 2. If I am in a herd of fast moving traffic I don't think I'm a target. I get the beep, look up - see the ####'s & I know that it's a false. However, if I am on the open road without cars around & it beeps I slow down without even checking the display...

    ...as 34.7, then (when passing the semi) displayed as 34.0. At the end of last alert - brief 35.5, just before locking out a BSM false (K band ####): Video 2: Not about a range here, but picking up reflections, at about 70-80 degree angle. LEO was parked at the pump (gas station is to my...

    CR97 settings for testing

    ...for a daily use, then what everyone else here has already suggested is valid - the general agreement of XK 2 or 3, and Ka 0 or 1, Ka Max ID, FDSr #### (ON). The TFSR is a big variable, depending on the traffic type and density. In rural areas or light traffic, it's best to keep it OFF, as it...

    CR97 settings for testing

    if you too much over ka 2 it does affect range. K filter 2-3 tsr on should take care of the BSM's word of caution FDsr #### will make it quieter but if you are not paying attention after the 1st alerts, a real k band treat could make it's way thru.

    ...on testing Ka band this weekend. I doubt we'll have enough time for K band too. For the CR97, I'm thinking XK Filter1, Ka Filter 1, Ka MaxId, FDSr ###. For the Ka Filter, there is an option to bring it down to 0, but 1 is the default. What are you guys' thoughts on all the optimal settings?

    detection cr97

    ...will get Whistler's attention since it will be coming from Vortex! It's set up on kill with my favorite settings- Ka filter on 0 to 1, K band on 1, TFSR off, and FDSr ### on. I'm sure he will calm it down some for some of his tests, but he has promised me to run it on kill for most of the...

    detection cr97

    ...a confirmation that the eventual Ka false is indeed a false. A brief Ka alert with no ID could very well be a distant I/O. So If I don't get a K #### alert within few seconds, then I know the generic Ka was a real source. With FDSr OFF, I can't confirm this. Ad it's only because of the K/Ka...

    ...my CR97 again this week and I've already had at least 100 false Ka alerts! I am running Ka filter on 1, and K filter on 3. TFSR is off. FDSr ### is on also. 90% of these falses have come from big trucks. I know damn well that they are not sending out Ka band, but the multiple strong K band...

    ...BSM as Ka 35.5 at first, then switches to K. In fact, I had a BMW cross-over that did exactly that - alerted as 35.5 Ka, then locked it as K band ####. So when you get such alerts, you cannot tell for sure if it is a false, or there is a legit source near by... @Bossdad71, I hope you can pass...

    ...still sucks. I am not sure if my unit behaves differently, but I have notice that sometimes will display 35.5 while alerting to BSM K band with #### (starts with K band / ####, then goes to Ka, 35.5, eventually back to K or stops alerting). In fact, I had about 2 or 3 of those happened on my...

    ...about 1/4 mile or so (as they close in from the opposite direction) at almost full strength, and 2-3 seconds later it switches to K and shows the ####. As soon as the semi is behind, alert is gone (no ramp down). Not all trucks do so, but many do. So I wonder what is their equipment that...

    ...strength on Ka band with no frequency (making the impression of a point blank I/O or Q/T), and few seconds (4-5) later will lock in to K band with ####. I think this is the bigger deal-breaker at this point. I can deal with falses (BSM/CAS) with various filter levels, but this K/Ka is the...

    Uniden R3 vs Original Escort Redline - observations.

    Hi all, I have been using an original Escort Redline for K and Ka for many years here in Australia. It has served me very well - however the frequent K falses had got to the point where it was impractical - it picks up everything on K, every car blind spot monitor system, radar cruise system...
