Turn your Ka filter off.

Ok, thanks. So teach me something. So Ka Narrow filters specific bands associated with BSM's, right? So we want to leave that on. Ka Filter would apply a filter to the whole Ka frequency so not a good idea as we want maximum warning, correct? Thanks.

Yes and no, but your on the right track.

1. BSM does not drift into the Ka spectrum. Right now it’s only in K band
2. Ka Wide is more for the European or over seas market.
3. Ka segmentation was added in the last couple of Pro-M firmware’s. You didn’t have the ability to turn off specific Ka frequencies like you do now.
If you look at the segmentation options of the Unidens or the Redline Ex, it’ll give you a better idea of how wide the Ka spectrum is. That’s why, in North America, we suggest leaving them all off except segments 2/5/8.
4. The theory is when you’re not looking for frequencies you don’t need to see, the detector would run faster on ones you did.

So your right on your thoughts of why, but off base with the BSM aspect when considering Ka Band.

Ok thanks a lot. You said "in North America, we suggest leaving them all off except segments 2/5/8". How does this statement get implemented on the Pro M? Are these settings correct then or do you recommend cutting them all off? Thanks.
  • *Ka:Narrow
    • Ka 33.8 On
    • Ka 34.3 Off
    • Ka 34.7 On
    • Ka 35.5 On

That looks good how you have it. The 34.3 is an overseas frequency. Just keep the Ka filter off.

33.8 is hit and miss. Some places still use it, but it’s not as widespread as 34.7 and 35.5.

The problem with 33.8 is that some cheap radar detectors, such as the Cobras, will false most high end detectors right around that frequency. Usually on a 2 lane road when they’re heading at you. It’ll look like I/O (instant on).

Once you get some seat time, you’ll find out in your daily commute what you see. You might find there is no 33.8 and turn it off too if you don’t need it. Maybe turn it back on for road trips.

I attached a photo of where I plan to mount the Radenso on my motorcycle. I have question about the multa radar settings for Chicago and Northwest Indiana. I have them both set to narrow and the filter on

high. I’ve gotten some detections in both stated but nothing visibly confirmed. Any suggestions?
