    Hey folks,
    My wife ran in a local store and I was waiting in the parking lot. As I was sitting there my r3 naturally alerted to the automatic doors sensors as usual K Band (one beep then muted with quite ride) then it alerts for X band. My RD is mount to the left of the RVM so naturally my eyes look back a walla Leo behind me across the highway. He was sitting there for a good 3-4 mins, so I know it was him and not the door sensors. 20180210_195235.jpg

    That seems confirmed to me! I’m assuming this is south jersey. No locals in NNJ have x band. At least in my area(Bergen/Passaic/Morris).

    I also see this is a local. Not SP. correct?

    Yes, South Jersey Camden County. I have seen only locals use X with the exception of Troopers on the AC expressway and South on the parkway towards shore points but that was only 1 time I travel to Cape May every weekend.

    Ok. Thanks for confirming. Whenever I go down the parkway/TP past North Jersey, I turn x on.

    I've run across X Band in pretty much every town in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Atlantic counties all in South Jersey. I do rideshare Uber/Lyft on the side for extra cash from time to time.

    In my town (Camden County) I know the run everything except laser. X, K, and KA

    I am glad that you had X band on or you would have not known.

    Just last night: Logan Township on Route 322 heading towards the Commodore Barry Bridge. Had a local LEO with a customer with 10.533 blasting away.
