Turn your Ka filter off.
Yes and no, but your on the right track.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.
That looks good how you have it. The 34.3 is an overseas frequency. Just keep the Ka filter off.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.
