    I thought this topic would have been common but I haven't had much luck with the search.

    TIA.

    I can't speak to what your settings should be, but I do know that MRCD photo radar is used in Edmonton and possibly other parts of Alberta too. Therefore you will need not only the standard antenna but also an MRCD antenna to cover that threat.
    I'd wait for the expected DSP antenna due out at year end, which I believe will combine the detection abilities of both of Net Radars' current antennas with vastly improved range as well.

    Inside city limits, only have Ka enabled. 34.7 is really all I've ever seen, but I'd run wide to be safe. Do you have an MRCD antenna? I don't recall. Anyways, anytime you're outta city limits run K-wide as well cause lots of RCMP cruisers run K-band now.

    Has anyone noticed super weak MRCD notifications lately? I receive strong and frequent falses from Ford F-150 and Lexus RX350’s and late almost non existent mrcd notifications , this all started about three weeks ago? Does anyone know if the city has updated their equipment??

    What do you mean "weak"? Just a bar of alert? Like the truck is far away? Or do you mean you didn't get an alert until you were right at the vehicle? If it's the second one all I can think of is that they may be using instant on tactics with the MRCD trucks. I haven't experienced it, but other members have.

    If you don't mind me asking, what detector are you running?

    I’m using Net Radar . It use to alert blocks away know it’s a couple car lengths at most the worst is f150 mrcd truck must have lead rear windows lol. I’ve also experienced them using instant on method but it’s not so instant and should have been easily detected. Even my old redline was better. I’m Hoping I can switch out the head with a radenso to try and improve it’s performance?

    You'll need the RG2 module for the Radenso. I'm not sure if the RC-M antena is gonna be compatible with the ALP CPU.. I imagine it will be. I have the Net Radar MRCD antenna and I've just unplugged it tbh. I get minimum 200 falses a day, so it's just easier unplugged haha

    F150's, every Audi, Lexus RX's and nearly any Cadillac with BSM will make the current antenna go ballistic. I hope the DSP filters MRCD better

    You’ll need the MRCD antenna. Unfortunately you’ve got the Net Radar. If you could find a buyer, you might want to look into the new Radenso RC-M.
    It integrates with the ALP system and can all be alerted on the Radenso’s new display.

    If it’s running close to the Beta Firmware that we’re testing in Edmonton, you’ll have no K band false alerts to the new Fords, Caddie’s, or Acura’s. Basically no BSM from any cars on the road.

    I’m having no issues with the silver Ford MRCD truck. Just passed it 15 minutes ago on 106 ave and 66st. About 300 meters warning.

    This is on my RPME

    Have you checked that your profile settings are Dual for your front antennas? Otherwise interference between your 2 antennas will cause the falsing you're experiencing. Just something to double check.

    Yeah, when dual isn't turned on its a constant Ka false. Like never stops....

    Next year R3 may detect MRCD.
    www.rdforum.org: R3 vs MCRD

    This will not help with MRCD falses... It helps with KA false that MRCD antenna sends to regular antenna if they are too close... I have this on, and still get MRCD falses on lots of cars...
