    Be careful turning off K band, especially on the outskirts of Houston [MENTION=14071]mainecrab[/MENTION]. I have encountered legit K band, most recently on 242, east of I45 near the Woodlands.

    How can you tell if it is a s7 or m4?

    If I recall correctly it's part of the FCC label. M4s always end in ####M4 on the sticker.

    Answered my own question about Escort Live.Yes it works with Escort Live. Called Escort and they do not support/repair the S7 anymore according to the lil girl I spoke with. I dont wish to buy one and get the service required message and be stuck.
    I have a bid in on a very clean used one on FleaBay. Looks like the Rx-65M4 are going for under $100 there. I just want the Ka band for one of the scout cars we use in rallys.

    Hi...i am a new user here. I want to know which SEGS to 2/5/8 and turns RDR off, you'll find that it'll match or beat any legacy RD from its era and even some today. Off axis is excellent due to horn design. Known issue with laser falsing with diodes going bad, but for $70.00 you cant beat it if it's an S7.

    USA Mode segs to 2/5/8/ and turns RDR OFF on the S7 based RX65. It was the first "known" RD to have this capability many years ago. Bel was at the forefront of this. If you can deal with the K band falsing due to the unit having zero K band filtering and some (but not all) laser falsing, the RX 65 is still a GREAT unit on Ka band. Its actually quite good on X band as well. @NoellEagan

"They Violated my FARGIN RIGHTS"-Meloni Destery's English Language! Yes, the K band comes on too often but that is AOK...Last week, I do not know how but, Laser worked twice, on scatter from car in front of me..I bought new years ago, and kept it. I noticed the price too...Kinda crazy...Check E BAY..they seemed cheapest. Lov this oldie but goody...
