I just realized that Indiana shows as needing segment 9 in the chart @imaitguy. Is that actually true?
If so, as pointed out by someone else recently, the Uniden R7 only goes up to 35.700 instead of 36.000 which is all of segment 10 and part of segment 9.

I don't know. Indiana is listed as 2/5/6/8/9 on the first post by @Vortex Locations where additional Ka segments (ie. segment 6) are needed
If I look at RDF GS v1, I don't see anything regarding Ka Seg 9 (35.613 – 35.828). It's possible the the Ka Seg 9 was a Unicorn or mis-reported.
From looking at my JBV1 Log, I may have seen something there once, but it could have been anything (a satelitte dish, other interference, ...)

I have no issue removing it.

Too late to go find, but there was traffic from Indiana RDF members and others talking drifting radar in 35.5 area they saw. Which makes some sense with the 35.5 density around certain areas here in Indiana. I run the recommended segments above when segmenting. With ER DSP products supposed to not hurt performance. Seems like folks tweak hard the R series because it affects performance. Less segments the better to get those moon shots. Currently I am running R7 wide and no segments. Seems to do well. R7 DSP ER (Max series), and ER RL EX have not been Ka falsing devices for me. When they go off, normally can count they are real alerts.

Updated per recommendations from @oldcelt and @Transporter (Anyone run Seg 1?)

Added NY and VA to States not using aircraft
Add Ka Seg 1 to NY

Does anyone know, is it safe to remove Ka Seg 9 from Indiana?

Sorry, but I'm not finding the posts mentioning encounters in NY requiring KA seg 1. Could someone post a link or post number? Thank you.
Check out the post below. I give a lot of weight to @Transporter’s experience.

Not so much an extra segment; but there are a few that ignore 33.8 alerts or don't even get alerted.

Confirmed (in pursuit and oncoming) 33.8 near Oak Ridge, TN.

Oh geez, when did seg 1 get recommended for NY? Been only running 2/4/5/6/8 for quite some time. Can someone link me to the post where this was recommended?

It's hidden at the bottom of post 265 above.

Thank you very much. Only seen a couple 33.8s in my area but still... you just never know in NY. Really didn't want to enable another seg but I might.

I've never even seen a legit seg 2 in NY. Seg 1 I'll pass on until someone else confirms (or I get a nasty surprise)

Couple Sheriffs up my way run it and I've seen a Bethlehem PD cruiser running it. It's such a white whale that I get kinda giddy when I see it. Other than the half dozen legit times I've seen it though, it's really not present.

Had another confirmed 34.890 encounter in NY on 95 just south of exit 18. NYSP cruiser running rear antenna under a bridge.

How many falses am really I going to get on seg 1 if I enable it? I'm running 2/4/5/6/8 right now. I realize the chance of a seg 1 detection is miniscule, but if there is no performance reduction or extra falsing, then why not enable it.

Try it and see. Every time I open my sweeps up a bit, I get more falses that I can't find a source for. If you are running full segment 4 and full segment 6, you probably already know.

I'm only scanning the top portion of 4 through to the bottom portion of 6. (2 and 8 as well of course)

So are segments 1-9 on the R7 the same as segments 1-9 at the beginning of this thread? Are they the same as for the Redline-O? That is for California, would I choose the same segments for both detectors?

Short Answer.

The R7 is a departure from what has been the norm, with a shorted Ka 9 range and no Ka 10 range.

There is some variation between vendors. I had started this chart a while back. The V1 really doesn't have segments (newer detectors have 1 and older ones 2 segments). With an app, you can define your own sweeps/ranges on the V1. The V1 table might be based on JBV1 settings from @johnboy00 . I just got up for a drink of water, but got distracted ...
