    Well the low power Stalker K Band guns are showing up everywhere so this has become an issue quickly.

    Looks like MRCD helps on Unidens

    I see the Pro-M was on US6. The latest update for the Pro-M that I'm borrowing from @Biohazardous is US9. Is this an earlier model with different firmware, older firmware not updated, or maybe a typo?

    No typo. That is what @Jag42 wrote. I triple checked.

    The DFR9 es no bueno, that sucks!

    Quick question, it looks like R3 1.40 and Pro-M got two runs except one with MRCD on and one off, correct? I see the note about traffic on R3 1.4 MRCD on. Did you experience (perceived or observed) slightly better detection with MRCD on? If so, it would almost be counter intuitive to some of the speculation happening.

    Well 2nd run was MRCD OFF 1870' and MRCD ON a BMW got in front a little and it was 1655' so it isnt fair to record that run as the car in front blocked it.

    Thanks for the test! Low powered K band guns are always interesting. Does anyone know how the Falcon HR stacks up against the Stalker Patrol?

    A few questions:
    Were the settings the same on all of the Unidens? K filter on, TSF off, K narrow?
    Were they all run in highway mode? Did you try any runs with K band sensitivity dialed back?

    For the V1, TRF2 and TSR are both just typos for TMF2 on and off?

    Was the Pro M a version 1 or version 2? Were you running in highway?

    Pro-M is on US6 for this test. Late February early March 2018?

    It’s on US9 now publicly.

    Should read R3 on v1.40, not 1.4. The period is a separator of major to minor software. IE( When v1.9 is reached, it does not roll over like an odometer to 2.0, but is now 1.10.)

    OCD, but an important detail especially for cross comparing in software.

    This is a good test... damn... barely over a quarter-mile for V1.... :pwn:

    Interesting how a radar detector like the Valentine One that's always been touted as a good K performer performs so lousy on low power K...

    I used to get three mile+ detections with my V1 against my Bushnell K band on the highway.... and I always considered the Bushnell low powered...
