Jane was on her way home from work today. She works in Greenville, N.C. She was about a mile or so from work when she got her first IO shot of 35.5! The trooper was shooting a car ahead of Jane because the ramp up is very fast. After he turns it off, the next hit she gets a few seconds later is from his rear unit because you can tell it's not as strong and it sees it as 34.9 for a second before changing back to 35.5. Her mileage on the trip odo. was 14.2 at the start and 15.0 as she passed by him. She even says HI! as she goes by him! As a bonus, the CR95 picked up a shot from the rear from close to a 1/2 mile after she passed by him! Since this is 2 clips together, skip to 17:28:30 on the first clip and then stop at 17:30:15 on the second clip.

Yeah, that bridge is usually where she is hauling @ss on her way home! I know this wasn't a killer long range alert yet, but it's been slim pickins around here lately! I can tell that this CR95 has got some killer range if they will only get out there like usual! They are all hiding from us!

Almost all the North Carolina State Police that I have encountered have been running 35.5 Six forks and 540 under the bridge all the time. I live in Apex, NC. Local police usually have 34.7. Most of the city of Raleigh police use 34.7 also. Wake Forest runs LIDAR a at 98 and US-1, 34.7 and K Band.

Good to have another Tarheel on board! I live in Williamston, N.C. We have a 50/50 split between 34.7 and 35.5 with the troopers in my area.Still have just enough K band to be a pain in the @ss with the little town. cops and deputy sheriff's.

I have X Band shut off and never had a 33.8 in NC yet, I have had my detector for 2 years. Another person posted they did have some by the Winston-Salem area. Greensboro usually running 34.70 too. The only 33.8 I have even received is south Western Virginia on I-77 a state and local both had it. Michigan State Police 35.5 almost every time.

I've had X band turned off on all my detectors for several years also. I've never seen 33.8 in NC either. On all my detectors that I can segment, I always turn everything off except K band and 34.7and 35.5. When we go out of state I'll turn 33.8 back on just in case!

Late to this thread, but I would be careful turning off 33.8. Winston-Salem PD and King PD use it in Forsyth and Surry counties.

Thanks @GotWake! That's good info to have! I've still never seen 33.8 anywhere in NC, but I'm in the eastern part of the state 99% of the time.

Yeah, I honestly don't know if I've seen it anywhere else in the state. There are just so many small towns that you may be passing through. Take King for instance. It covers a few miles on 52. The PD will sit on the highway at night. I've always left 34.7 on even before we started seeing it in our part of the state. Having 33.8, 34.7 and 35.5 on isn't going to slow these new RDs down.

I've always turned it off because if you can just run 34.7 and 35.5 you will never get a false on Ka band!

True, I haven't had too many. But, I've seen a few show up on 38.8.

But, you will have your whole day ruined if you get hit with 33.8 and have it turned off! that would suck big time! Since we got 34.7 in NC, I have also started running seg 6, just in case the Stalkers start drifting high like they do in other states. So far the ones I'm getting hit with are staying right at 34.7. I'm not surprised, the 35.5 I see has always been spot on too.

X band has been gone at least a decade in NC.

X- band went away several years ago. I can't remember the exact date but I have it turned off on all my detectors. Now if only they would do away with K band!

I'm trying to remember the last time I saw it. I'm thinking maybe around 2006 and that was literally in Mt Pilot. ;) How that little town has a PD is beyond my comprehension. :rofl: But, they had a x band gun for about 6 months and went straight to 35.5.

That could have only been Barney Fife! I'm pretty sure he was still writing tickets till he drew his last breath!
