    He folks,
    I got 2 consecutive K Band 24.1xx hits approximately 1-2 mi apart in Washington Township (Gloucester County) on rt 42 south bound. Both Leo's were shooting directly across the highway 90 degrees. It appears they were looking for someone or set up for something else. I live in Camden County and my local PD uses all 3 bands X, K, and Ka. I was considering turning K Band down or completely off due to falses etc. Lately I have only been seeing KA band on the AC Expressway and the parkway south. That's when I rely mostly on the R3 for weekly trips to cape may.

    I have gotten hit with X Band off Rt. 42 heading toward Woodcrest Country Club/Voorhees. I don't remember the Exit #. It's always scary because they run everything. I was hit by Laser on Rt. 42 once, I don't know by who, on the far left lane where the median ends just before the Walt Whitman Bridge before the lane rerouting, getting rid of that merge and disappearing right lane.. I got the impression that they were checking out its possible use. This was a couple few years ago I never encountered it again.

    I live a few miles *room. Woodcrest CC X band is definitely in full effect in small towns

    Were they Washington P.D or Troopers? I haven't seen a Trooper running K band in years.

    That confirms my suspicion. I have run into Washington P.D running K band and even an X gun within the last year or so.

    Brigantine runs K band. They will frequently sit at the base of the bridge targeting vehicles coming from the AC Marina.

    Coming back from the parkway on the AC exp. (headed towards Philly) About 5 MI or so from the egg harbor toll I got very short KA detection, maybe a few hundred feet. The Leo was tucked well behind some tress and it was very heavy traffic. This could of due to him just getting set up, using I/O, traffic or detector. But either way it made me "pucker up" so to say. . The R3 usually gives well advanced notice. Just goes to show you can't always rely on the RD no matter how good it is..

    The trees are blocking the radar that’s why alerts were short.A tactic used by many police.

    Trenton local PD runs K band for sure. Mostly state cops run X in SNJ from what I've seen.

    I'm all over SJ, and haven't honestly encountered active use of X in 2 years or so! I do see a lot of Ka, and some K---

    Perhaps X is making a comeback?

    Are you sure your X Band works?

    Woolwich township still runs X band. Winslow Township runs X,K and Ka. That laser encountered near the Bridge could have been a trooper but most likely Delaware River Port Authority. They cover about a mile on each side of the bridges.

    Atco Township X band.
    Point pleasant Township X band
    Redbank X band

    Port Authority Delaware uses X band! White crownvic had one in it. Delaware uses a wide variety of equipment.

    Well, since the SP are using X I'll unfortunately have to turn it back on---- I've been driving with it off for about 3 years! (and been very lucky, apparently).

    Was also hit by a stationary LEO in Mullica Hill on RT322 shooting oncoming W-bound traffic about 2 miles past RT55 in Glassboro.

    Logan Township Woowich Rt.322 at night. I have gotten X Band alert a number of times but way too dark through there to see the Leo so I never could see where they sat. Also at night Rt. 322 between the Mullica Hill bypass and Rt. 55 Ka band again it is so dark but you can see them just off the shoulder.

    I've seen these exact locations too---although the bypass has seemed to consistently be Ka for me.
    Thx for that.

    DE DOES seem to use just about everything that's on--or now off-the market! Rt1 I've had X, K, Ka-- if ever lidar didn't trigger whichever RD I was using at the time. Rt 95 thru DE lots of Ka and K. Guess I need to run X again, since along with NJ it's in DE. Bummer.

    @Stevedabutcher

    I think I know the location(s) you are mentioning on the AC XPWY. There are two "cut throughs" where only "Official" cars are allowed to turn left into the heavily wooded area between the West bound lanes and the East bound lanes. NJSP use the "cut throughs" as locations to sit and "Shoot" oncoming cars. I have experienced C/O and I/O radar. I can't recall the band, but most likely Ka. As I approach the two "cut throughs" I make sure I am at or only slightly above the PSL, as I watch other cars blast along in the left lane. I have seen the NJSP pull out and make stops, but I have seen many cars that I estimate are way, way above the PSL, and the NJSP do not stop them. Don't know why! In addition to my knowledge of the two locations, I have marked the locations in my STiR Plus. Also, if the Trooper is not "shooting" C/O for that long distance alert, and is "shooting" I/O, the best thing you can hope for is that the Trooper "shoots" someone ahead of you so that you get an alert, even a short alert, so that you can bring it down to the PSL before he has a chance to "shoot" you. Good Luck!
