Nice, i thought 34.7 was the dfr' s strong point. Its just 35.5 and 33.8 it lacked compared to the r series

Spot on. But I actually had a 33.8 around the bend detection that was ok. 35.5 is the weak sauce, but haven't got a vid of that yet.

Actually in the lab the DFR series are 107 vs 35.5, which is only 2 behind the Redline. So no slouch! But yeah...the R series really raised the bar didn't they!

They're analogue only. But it's neat how it's progressed from LRD950 to DFR original, to the latest DFR with R1/3-like cases, menu, and options. These new DFRs might still be analogue, but they perform great with impressive K filtering, and now new-gen appearance and menu. Uniden created something new from something old, and it fills a niche in the market and price point I think. I enjoy running the prototype I've got, particularly in city areas. Thought I'd give it a run in the twisties and glad I got this video. The Rs probably would have only gotten a little ways further detection anyway. These Kentucky hills and curves are something else. The roads up here are awesome too!

Nice video ! My brother in law is borrowing my DFR9 for a few weeks, he said it has been getting really good 34.7 encounters.

I wish they would have increased the 33.8 and 35.5 since they readit a hole Rd? I mean it doesn't have to me R series performance, but even on all bands just like 34.7 is
