    For what it's worth, I had seen this listing on eBay for a few days, and the price seemed cheap. As to why it hadn't sold yet, I figure it was due to the conflicting information. The title lists it as "Stalker Dual DSR-24.150GHz Display & Counting Unit, Police Radar KA Band" .... which we of course know 24Ghz is K band, not Ka band.

    I emailed the seller to get some clarification for the record. Here it is, in case anyone is interested in buying it.

    Link: Stalker Dual DSR-24.150GHz Display & Counting Unit, Police Radar KA Band | eBay

    Got this response back this morning.

    You can tell it’s K-band by the size and shape of the antennae. But it’s missing parts, notably power cable and the second antenna cable. That’s probably why it’s “untested” and also cheap and unsold. Probably got it in an auction lot and just tossing it up for whatever he can get.

    Yeah, I knew as much just from visually looking at it. I just don't trust people not to change out equipment or use pictures from equipment that isn't actually their own... so it was my way of getting it in writing. So, there it is incase anyone is interested. Guess it's like a $125 grab bag. lol

    I bought the other Stalker K band unit from them. Only came with main unit, 2 antennas, and one cable. I have a power cord and remote from my other unit.

    Initially the first antenna I plugged into the front antenna port came up as fail. Swapped it to the rear port and passed. Must have been a glitch because both now work in either port. Overall it works fine and was worth it. I gave a best offer and was accepted so I'd definitely recommend offering much less and state that the unit is not tested or complete to get a better deal.

    Are there K band units which use a blacked out antenna too? My locals run 34.7 and K band and I don't recall seeing any antenna that look like these.

    Yes, the lens cover can be black or can be translucent white or blue plastic or all manner of different designs.

    :thumbsup:

    Lately, I've been wanting to hone my testing to narrow it down to the exact equipment my locals use. Is the different design or externals such as the color of the plastic indicative of different antenna abilities? If there can be slight modifications then I'd rather buy the identical equipment as used by my local tax collectors.

    No, at least on the Stalkers you can replace them, but I think it works that way for all of them.

    The only K band antennas I know of that have the black coned face is the Stalker Patrol. Kustom has the K band patch antennas for the raptor and I think Decatur has patch antennas which aren't made anymore.
