    Had a chance to drive Hwy 40 to Roosevelt yesterday. There were cops coming down to Salt Lake like crazy.....but the sad thing was on both sides of the drive I came across a Deputy Sheriff from either Duchesne County or Uintah County......I couldn’t read the sticker on the car....that was in a white slick top Camaro shooting K-band. The detection range was not very good either. Lots of twisties in the road and cars directly in front the Sheriff both times so I’m sure reflecting the majority of the signal. Only forward facing radar....didn’t even have time to notice and write down the frequency.

    All of the Troopers and Roosevelt PD and a couple other Sheriff from both Duchesne and Uintah that I came across were 34.7 Ka. This guy was the only outlier.....and to have a slicktop Camaro made it that much worse.

    The most important thing to do when you get a legitimate K hit is to memorize the frequency. Anytime you get a hit within .007MHz on either side it's time to pay attention.
