    So i went ahead and picked up the vector 995 from letgo for $20. I gotta say its in really good shape and its the lates version 6.5 with TSR. It looks like its been barely used. I already picked up a leo with a customer on the other side with 34.7 at 1.4 mile.



    Does autoscan or city mode reduce ka band sensitivity. There were some BSM false that scared the crap out of me
    But i had TSR Off iam going to try with on

    auto and city will reduce k and x band sensitivity but not ka. Tsr will cost you a little on k band

    IME, using Autoscan on a 985 has a HUGE impact on K band sensitivity! I never owned a 995 so I can't tell you about that. It should not reduce Ka sensitivity though.

    On my 8500x50 black w/6.7 firmware Auto does help with false K band issues. I run TSR on and Auto and get ample "warning" on K Band.....and it does quieten things down considerably.

    TSR ON quiets those IO shots down quite a bit also! :)

    No doubt it reduces sensitivity. No argument from the peanut gallery today.

    I believe that auto mode on those older units only effects X band...the Escort X8500 and Bel 300 are newer and they are only X band on Auto also...the Magnum was the only one that had it effect K band in that era.

    No, Ka is not effected by Auto or city modes. Only K/X.
