Curious if anyone on here has experience in or around college Station TX as far as police... I'm lucky enough that where I live is almost all c/o 34.7 with the very occasional k band and laser. What do they run out there?

I do not and have not lived there but used to frequent it a lot in the recent past. Got IO from DPS on 21 at night and college station police like to jump up on the curbs in the median and shoot IO at people. Once I got a constable in the middle lane shooting co outside of town on 21. All I've ever seen is 34.7
If they're driving around then the PD like to just run either CO or nothing.
What kind of detector do you have as DPS can be pretty quick on the trigger?
RDFGS says laser and K band but I can't confirm it. I have seen a moto cop but I couldn't tell if he had a LIDAR holster. I would definitely not count it out.
I cleaned out my hard drive but if I have any videos I'll show you.
I'll go pull links too.

what direction are you coming in from? If we share routes I'll tell you what you'll see too.

Edit 1:

Edit 2: Here's what they look like. I've got no other pics or videos.
110363


edit 3: changed road names that I was mixing up

Edit 4: 6 months have passed and I was going through town. I caught the Moto guy pulling someone over so I can guarantee they still run enforcement, especially with that construction out of the way. Still can’t say if it’s laser or not but it is very likely.

Wow thanks for all the input! I'd be coming from San Antonio but might look be looking at a house down there soon so who knows... I run an R3 and waze all the time.

I can't really afford lj's but the recent spike in lidar use around spring branch is concerning me. I'd be happy to invest in a set rather than deal with i/o. That scares me a bit to hear they shoot instant on. I bet a lot of kids have radar detectors so they quick trigger to fight it.
I'm extremely quick on the brakes any time the R3 chirps especially to ka band. I usually am at psl within a second or two.

We're basicsally the same person on the radar side. I actually live just north of sa so I'll give you a breakdown of the whole thing.

I'm sure you've been up and down 35 but if not then I'll tell you they shoot laser, DPS sets CO or IO traps and I recently spotted a guy shooting IO 33.8. DPS also likes to roll silent.
Come to think of it, the whole route DPS is going to be 80% IO and 20% CO while they're rolling or set up. I've had IO by them on 21 just outside of San Marcos not even a week ago.

Your first encounter with SH21 will be awful until you get to Bastrop then it turns into a beautiful little road. Bastrop guys look like Hays county guys who look like College Station guys so you can't miss them. Bastrop uys like to set CO traps. I have a good clip of one. Just remember DPS, I've caught them rolling silently through there before.

Once you hit 290, our paths look like they split until you hit Caldwell. If I remember correctly, there's some funny business in Caldwell, I think some unmarked chargers. I don't know the counties but Burleson has at least one 33.8 CO guy. Probably a lot of CO 34.7 too just like Washington county.

I don't mind 33.8 and idk what the big deal is. The uniden picks it up just fine. All the constables out here shoot 33.8

Bastrop County sheriff
come to think of it there's a chance I've only ever seen Bastrop County guys and not a local PD.


















Yes, my K and Ka tones are flipped. It's 34.7. I also fully expected a takedown of the guy in front of me but there was actually a takedown of a guy going the other way.

I had a video of me taking the whole trip and I was even going to 46 to get home, going through Spring Branch. I'm from Boerne. Unfortunately, I could not get it to work at all, I'll go see if I can get it up.

yes it does. But I have had some close calls with it.

It's muted until right at the first blip. I was worried I would get flagged for music

Don’t you have IO to deal with in spring branch? I’ve caught bulverde doing it at night east on 46.

As for laser systems, you definitely don’t sound like you want to buy an ALP system and TMG is looking pretty good right now. If you have a sedan or similar a dual head setup like mine will give you JTG on all the non VPR stuff. VPR performance is arguably good and getting better. If they ever bring the XLRs in you can just slap the VPR head on (it’ll come out eventually).

Not really any instant on here. I'm pretty lucky I guess. Tmg is pretty tempting but hard to justify if there's no laser in college Station so idk yet.

Like I said, I’m not too sure. There are Moto guys but I only saw him getting gas. Around brenham I’ve seen DPS in laser position once but no real confirmation.
You really should be fine but I’d hate to steer you in the wrong direction.
