Not sure you want to run narrow sweeps after seeing this one. You can see him parked on the ramp across from me at the stoplight. Shooting people in the a$$. my GoPro camera was having problems sharing the video it would let me play but not download so you're looking at a video of a video.

Thanks for the heads up. I recognized that mountain range immediately. You weren’t far from me. You still in the area?

Yeah but they got me on a really tight schedule. I'm running up to twin falls Idaho to pick up a load that was supposed to be picked up last night.

Another time then :)

Yeah, I've been running Ka Narrow on my R3 to reduce falses, but this far out-of-tune of a gun is a little ridiculous. I wonder if this guy is assigned this frequency by Utah Department of Public Safety or if he's just one lazy officer failing to tune his unit up at the start of each shift. Either way, this is good to know. I usually do pretty decent speeds up there near Ogden if it's off hours.

P.S. I'll update RDFGS later to add in the warning for this Charger and his 34.989 Ka.

He can't be getting good far distance read / return results.

Definitely hit you up next time thru. For those not familiar with the area this is Ogden,Ut.

According to the "Radar off frequency" calculator on CopRadar.com, with a base frequency of 34.700 Ghz and an out of tune bias of +289 Mhz, looks like it would show a 75mph reading as 74.38 mph, or just 74mph (assuming the unit rounds down if below 0.5).

So, this works in our favor. No need to let them know hahaha.

Plus, who'd love to be able to get off of a ticket on a technicality if you can prove they haven't tuned their gun at the start of each shift? Me. :D

No Jake needed when MT lol. I think I was in shock from that frequency too. Never encountered one that high but that's why I run 2,4,5,6 8.

Officers don’t tune the frequency of their radar antennas at the start of each shift. Shops that service these units are the ones who control the frequency (or the manufacturer of course). What an officer may do is check the accuracy of their antennas and counting unit by performing a tuning fork test.

FWIW, officiers are neither "assigned radar frequencies" or able to "tune their guns". The only thing an officer can do is test the accuracy of their gun with a tuning fork (and most are required to do this at the start of the shift). As you demonstrated with the calculator, however, the gun will still read speed accurately this far out of tune so the officer would have no idea the frequency was so far off.

Edit: @Eaguar beat me to it :)

Glad to see it's not just us NY users that come across crazy high stalker units. Always have ran seg 6 since I can remember, definitely worth it.

This is the most recent one I have encountered. I have seen some that were higher, as high as the low 35.xxx range. The Stir+ has only segment 5 on, so it does not alert to these and I see quite a few, about 1 every 2-3 weeks or so. I see them all over upstate where you need additional segments enabled. Some even drifted or were tuned lower, into segment 4, but those are quite rare compared to the ones that drift high.

Since NYS does its own tuning and certifications - and they wont provide the certs in traffic court under any circumstances, there is a possibility some of these are getting tuned out of segment 5 on purpose. There is just too many of them to be a coincidence.
