Hi, iv recently picked up the uniden r7 and was wondering if the surrounding houston area uses K band?
I know the KA and Laser or POP are used a lot in houston but i was curious if i should turn off K or not since there so many false K bands.

Please let me know if you have any information or detail that would help me out And also if you could share your settings with me.
Thanks you.

(mod, i hope this would be an ok section for this. if not please relocate my post.)

Thank you for the post. And welcome!!

I’m gonna have it moved to a section where it can get more attention.

I’m in NJ, but I am fairly certain K band is alive down there...unfortunately:/

But well see, i hope some locals would chime in and help me out. =)

I know the new R7 has different futures for the K band segment and K filtering but im a noob with all of that...

Pop is not used in Texas...K band is used here and there in Houston, so I wouldn’t turn it off. I recommend using k filter and reduce k band to 50-60% in advance mode. There are a few k band units in hpd/HCSO/constables arsenal so keep an eye out for them.

Hot spots for k band
Jacinto city police
School police
Montgomery county, north Houston.

There's a fourth gen HPD Tahoe that shoot narrow K band. He's got a Kustom Raptor and is pretty clever shooting it.

If you have not already found it there is a thread dedicated to cop spotting in Houston. You should have access to it at your level.

Not sure what you mean by surrounding areas but I have not seen it on 290, Bellville PD is most if not all K though. Minus Harris county, all the deputies and troopers I've caught are 34.7

This is the link, it's up to 20 pages now but worth reading through as there are some speciality cars reported in there. I'm in the Med Center/Museum District, @romclean is up on the North side and @mihneagabriel is in the Med Center proper. (I can actually see his building from my window). We test about twice a year.
