    Last night was the first wine in a week. Tummy bugs.
    BTW. If you are feeling off colour and are flying Air NZ, tell them nothing. My wife had medical clearance to fly but they wouldn't let her until she had filled out all their forms and been examined by their "Doctors" the next day.
    Their policy is that if you have been vomiting you don't fly for 24 hours, so don't get airsick either.
    They wouldn't respond when I asked their policy on Asian passengers who are coughing up a lung.

    Ha Ha...

    Anthony Pettis just submitted Micheal Chiesa

    I don't like Micheal Chiesa , and he missed weight, so it was very satisfying. Got him in the first minute of round 2

    Keen to see how they compare.
    The thing about Hilly terrain and missing I/O shots I think is a real thing.. Would be good to compare them both and know how much performance you are getting.

    Yeah not a lot happening here either. Had a couple of days off while family were visiting.

    Sure you meant 26.xxx? Most detectors only look at k-band up to ~24.250GHz or so.

    Ahh yes, I’ve come across some 34.6xx a few times as well as 34.8xx

    So could have been a morning patrol keeping our roads and drivers safe ;)

    Yes I see those freqs around Chch sometimes too.

    Incidentally, there's something that I find on ~34.698GHz on Wairakei Rd just east of the Roydvale ave roundabout. Usually only on the rear antenna, when I'm passing the tyre shop on one side of the road and food shops on the other. Every time I go past for the last ~3 months, doesn't seem to matter the time of day & it's also there at the weekend. Might have to go for a walk one day and see if I can find the source. A bit annoying but at least my RD gets a daily Ka sanity check.

    I took a road trip from Auckland headed up to Mangawhai Heads for the weekend. I turned off all the K filters I could find and rand K wide. I encountered a total of 3 pole mounted redflex cameras. it got hits on 24.095, and one alert loaded into the database gave me the heads up that I was approaching it. im guessing the other 2 poles are newer, and not in the database yet. of course I got a heap of k falsies, but that is to be expected with no filters on - when I get some time im keen to do a bit of testing to set it up correctly, the traffic warning systems, and speed warning signs obviously giving off alerts, but I was keen to see the raw detection against the poles.
    the laser falsies annoyed me so much that I switched laser off, not much use really anyway, since you get hit with laser, your gonna open your wallet.
    im wondering if the new 1.4 firmware or MRCD features will give any benefits to us Kiwis here?
    anyway im keen to do some K testing one weekend if you guys are going to give it a crack

    The raw detection of K band especially those speed warning signs is quite impressive.
    I think @Tseven007 has done some testing with a few detectors against the redlfex pole cameras. I think the pole cameras are not that much of an issue as you can set them up as alerts either on your phone( waze) or if you have a GPS detector such as the R3 or EX. The difficult ones are the mobile cameras as these don't really have a fixed location and also have their frequency well below 24.050, which is currently not detectable by the Uniden R series, and questionable detection with the redline EX.

    Proper K testing would require a redflex source, so a pole mount or if one day they decide to put one of those mobile vans in one of our neighborhoods for a few hours. Where there is a will, we can always find a way.
    MRCD is currently not used in NZ, so one less thing to worry about.

    I wish they'd swap our Redflex van cameras to MRCD now that the R3 (beta FW) shows awesome detection of MRCD

    Anyone else updated their Redline EX to v1.7?

    Noticed any differences?

    @DEMON5, be careful what you wish for! MRCD detection may be great, but it is also K band, and the falses may drive you nuts as well!
    May be comparing apples and oranges, but I once drove between Christchurch - Ashburton with MRCD turned on my Redline PROA, and had numerous MRCD falses (I was testing if it responded to the side of the road vans, which it did not obviously).

    Hey m8.

    I've had more than the usual amount of detection's in the last 6 weeks, all resulting in making eye contact with the source. But i don't think it's related, i think east Auckland is being targeted at the moment.

    I'm cutting film from another one i got today with the EX at an extreme elevation obstacle. i'll post it in here soon.

    I guess what i'm saying is the the update has not been detrimental, but i cannot definitively say it has improved because my EX has always been a sh1t hot detector. :)
