So are the listed frequencies for Edmonton still accurate? (other than MRCD)? I just started using frequency display on my old Beltronics (until I get my hands on a MRCD unit) and it shows a lot of Ka 33.6x - are those just Cobras leaking like mad?
SC-300 uses 34.6 Ka Band (Can drift ensure sweeps/band segmentation are set accordingly)
* Stalker 34.7 (Edmonton, Sherwood Park, and surrounding areas)
* Kustom Signals Raptor K band (Sherwood Park, St.Albert and surrounding areas)
* Ka 33.8 (Report of use outside of Edmonton city limits north side, highway 28) Thanks to @edconline for the report!
* Ka 35.5 - (Use in St.Albert and surrounding areas)

Yes these are accurate although they've mostly replaced the SC300 PR with DCAM/MRCD now. Rarely see a Ka truck now but they're still out there AFAIK.
33.6 are Falses and if you had a Band Segmentable detector you would not be getting these because it won't scan that area of the Ka spectrum.

Good to know. Thanks!

They've started to use DragonCam on the Whitemud, reverse shots from the 91st Street and 97th Street overpasses.

Oh, and I ran into a classic speed trap on the weekend, westbounds on 107 Ave, just before 149 Street. A fully-marked EPS SUV was hiding behind a tree, running C/O Ka band (34.6, IIRC). Haven't seen that in a while. Of course, it was hot outside, so I suppose it's more comfortable to sit in an air-conditioned cruiser than to stand behind a tree toting a heavy LIDAR gun.

Yup they're on Whitemud everyday shooting both ways. Definitely a spot to watch or now. It seems like they're there for a good portion of the day as well

@wrxsti15 is that the location that keeps getting deleted from Waze ??
Whitemud and 91st... Probably dude uses Waze... I mark him like 3 times... and it get deleted... Even I got likes for it... He still manage to remove himself...
If I had free time I would park there and mark him every second... with two phones, and tablet... :D

I thought Waze has algorithms that prevent a single user (like an LEO) from removing speed traps. By my understanding, they should be able to get away with it a few times, but then be locked out.

I believe the alerts automatically disappear if no one gives it a thumbs up(confirms the report) after 15minutes.

For those of us without a Facebook account (yeah, we actually exist), what's the synopsis?

The head of city council received a +40 ticket on Fox Road where it drops from 80 to 40. He's reviewing photo enforcement now as well! That's what I got from the headline

If that's what the FB post was about, then I'm not sure that's fully correct?

I read councilman Knack was contacted by a citizen who got a $350 ticket where it changes from 80kph to 40kph in about 40m.

He said EPS is reviewing enforcement they're changing the sign back.

You're right. The way the Edmonton Page worded it was strange. Just read the global article. Thanks for the correction

In spruce grove all mobile photo trucks are LIDAR. I'm honestly surprised that everyone sees a lot of LEO. I do quite a bit of driving around the entire city of Edmonton and I rarely see speed traps.

I live around on the east side of the city in the Capilano, Ottewell, Fulton area where the Lidar and MCRD are most popular.

Both types are on the north and southbound runs on 50th St. Just north of 101 ave. and the East/West runs of 106th Ave on both sides of Capilano freeway.

East bound on 101 ave. At 71st.

7 days a week. If you want to check your systems, just drive around here any day of the week and you're bound to find one at those locations easily.

50 street north bound around 66 ave the Leo hide behind the power pole. You come over the crest of a hill and get you there. They've been using Ka guns there.

Also south bound 50 st just north of 38 ave. They park on the grass on the west side of 50st. By the tree line.

I/O or C/O? I find 50th Street particularly annoying, since it's a 4-lane divided arterial with no adjacent residences or businesses (much like 91st Street). Why is it posted at 60? North of Whitemud, 50th used to be a 70 zone.

I/O. They wait till you crest the hill then shoot.
I have no idea why someone thinks that it was a good idea to drop the speed limit other than how many new businesses have popped up there.

Especially the new gas stations and Timmies on the west side of 50 st. as you get closer to the Whitemud.

I could see the mayhem of cars crossing lanes coming out of there with the amount of traffic on that part of 50 st.
