    For Out of Box High, I am not going any lower than 24.195 per Vortex instructions.

    Just curious how low you guys are going on this to mute the BSM offenders..

    I don't think I've ever seen a cop here run K higher than 24.175 but no way I'm going that low.

    I've been pretty happy with an OTB range of 24.075 - 24.197.

    A quick look at my logged non-locked out alerts over the past 6 months in YaV1 shows clusters around 24.129, 24.157, 24.159-24.160, 24.162, 24.171, 24.174, 24.202, 24.207.

    @mikedotd Very cool and great to hear from someone in NE, hopefully more peeps in our area will chime in. Curious if you know which of the alerts you listed were confirmed LEOs?

    In my town I've seen 24.150, 24.161, and tonight 24.173. I've been tempted to create "notch filters" for things like 24.170 and 24.174, but unfortunately police K-band is centered on 24.125 and 24.150 and does seem to drift around, so I think it's too risky a thing to do.

    Besides, with the 3sec and rear antenna muting option on the V1 I don't have to listen to BSM's very often, I've usually identified and passed the source before the V1 audibly alerts, but still see the V1 and app light up.
