Driving around North Carolina farm country suddenly RD started alerting to band 13.294. I mean, I was in the middle of nowhere. Any idea what this may have been?

Woah, holy X band Batman!

Don't know if it's possible but that's the closest band. You have frequency recorded in an app with screenshots?

It's actually closer to 13.369. X band is turned off.

It looks like you enabled Ku band.

What version is your V1 @Matthewstorm? I recall someone else was seeing a similar issue when they first started their V1 and it was due to faulty data being sent by an older fw version. That doesn't seem to be the issue in this case since you were moving, but I'll try to find the post.

Edit: Here is the other post: www.rdforum.org: Strange frequency readout on JBV1
Looks to be a different issue.

Yes, Ku is enabled. But I've never encountered that band before. I'm on Euro Sweeps.

Any reason you have Ku band on? It's not used anywhere in the US, and you'll only get falses like this. As for the source, no idea. Perhaps some RF harmonic from that airport?
