You are welcome. You deserve the accolades.

Couple more quick questions. Your device avatar signatures you have wide variety of RD/laser CM gear. Have you run the Pro M through same course/gauntlet? I would like to see that. It is one of many in the stable I have. I haven been trying to validate it is as good as R3 (plus any other top tier brand), yet quieter to falses. I agree with the consensus ProM is quieter around my typical remote travel (it is my go to device for biz airline travel other locale) and limited testing on home based roads. I have not seen it be as superior/same range compared to others (filters on or off with each). If you have tested it on your course, send me link of results.
I have run this course with the Radenso's, but not to the detail as the R3 and R-EX. Another member here asked me to run these 2 detectors to see if I was seeing the same thing he was.

I was also working on something else with the R3 and R-Ex for him, so that's why your seeing mostly these 2 and no Radenso tests.

I do plan on running both the Radenso's through this in more detail when time permits. The days are getting shorter being this far north, and I'll be going back on nightshift at work shortly, so it might be a bit till I'll have the time to get away and do a decent documented runs.
I'd prefer to test everything on the same day and as close to each other time wise so the results are better.

You plan on upgrading EX to 1.12 and test again anytime soon? I am not making formal request, just wondering. My supposition seat of pants limited use, the EX range is bit better with .12. I gather that initial view, while running filters on, segmented on Ka 2/4/5/6/8, K left alone, noX.
I just upgraded to 1.12 tonight. I haven't formally tested it out, but did run it a bit while I was out this evening. Once I get back to some normal hours, I plan on testing it again.
I ran the R-Ex's K band setting "on". The R3's K band setting was wide. TSF was off on both RD's.

I knew I was going to shoot the Falcon HR, so I wanted to make sure they were scanning the whole K frequency. I was interested to see if there was any change or variance in the Falcons frequency signature at a distance. A blip might be a better way to explain it.

On the Ka test, I left both Segmented 2/5/8. No Ka filters. X band was disabled on both. I wanted it as even as I could.

I will go back at watch your data/videos again. Did you show how each was segmented on your Ka test? For the K test, you noted no segmentation. I am sure they are equal. Curious on what settings you like.
I didn't show the Segmented portion. I know that the Stalker pretty much shoot religiously 34.723. Out of fairness of the test, I wanted them even.

The R-Ex offers K band segmentation. The R3 doesn't, so in fairness, I left K band on for the Ex and wide for the R3. If you turn K off on the R-Ex, it offers K band segmentation.

Settings I like? Pretty much the same as everyone else runs. It's a little different up here. There is no out dated equipment. The Leo's are pretty much equipped with the latest and greatest. Everything is pretty much calibrated and checked. The chances of running into a out of tuned gun are pretty slim. Even our garage door openers are limited to only transmit for 2 seconds by Canadian law.
The R-Ex.AutonoX K on, Ka seg'd 2/5/8. No filters No TSF, MRCD on
The R3. Advanced, X off, K100%,Ka 100%,Ka seg'd 2/5/8 No TSF No Filters

I work a little backwards. I'm trying to trip the RD's up and work back to see the edge that makes them stop.


I wish I was closer to you. I would bring several of my vehicles which have BSM and semi self driving radars. I have always wanted to test a course like yours with the RD vehicle following BSM cars in front, as they all come up on the radar. Same for having vehicles going opposite direction. Time it so the crap signals are being examined by the RD too. See how it affects range (if at all) with various filters turned on and off while having to deal with RF clutter present. My seat of pants tells me in traffic with BSM and collision/lane keep radars, reduce the effective range of real alerts while they are present (and the filters are engaged). Certainly on K band (which is making huge resurgence in Indiana). Also, I experience less Ka range 3.on R3 for some reason when it has full filtering on K, Ka, and in proximity of BSMs/lane keep radars. Can’t prove that. Seat of pants. Also, think other brands I or my guys run could also have same thing going on. Have you observed differences when close by to BSM/lane keep interference?
Be pretty hard to test unless you do it like you've mentioned. Different manufactures shoot their BSM at different levels, different angles. I would have to agree, if it's picking up more than1 K band signal, it could be an issue. It would have to be a perfect storm.
I do have more experience with the Radenso's, and they do have much better filtering, so when I do get a K band alert, I pay more attention to it since it doesn't really false to BSM signals.
The best way to not have that issue is for the R3 and R-Ex to be able to filter out the BSM false's in the first place like the Radenso's. Does it effect the reactivity? Possibly, but it's better than having to analyze each signal to see if it's legitimate or a BSM false.

Honestly, I really do not find either the R3 or R-Ex overly bad for falsing, even with my settings. Could be my driving environment? Neither of them are my "Daily Driver" for CM's anyway. Once or twice a week tops. I like them both for different reasons. If I could only have 1 of the 2, it would be the R-Ex because of the MRCD detection, auto learn and the Mag mount.

Were any of your tests running with MRCD/CT CM turned on (for those who have that capability)? Since you are in CA, thought you might. Could affect range on your tests with your traditional Guns. LEO Rumors here in Indiana, this stuff is headed our way.

Thank you.
I do on the R-Ex, but I turned it off for the testing. Same with Speed Cameras, RLC...etc. All off on both.

Thank you @Heywood for your generous info reply (and in the middle of the night). Always learning, you helped.
