I took my CR97 on a quick trip today. I started off on the Interstate with TFSR off, FDSr off, X/K filter-2, Ka-filter-2, X-band off, Ka Max Id. With TFSR off, I was getting quite a few K band false alarms, so I gradually increased the K-band filter up to 5. I normally don’t see much K-band on the interstate so I took a chance. Cranking the X/K filter up to 5 eliminated most of the false alarms. I left the Ka filter at 2 because most of my BSM falsing is reported as Ka. I didn’t get too many encounters today, but I did get a pretty good .8 of a mile 34.7 C/O from a TN Trooper who was hidden behind a dirt embankment past a bridge. Given the terrain, I was pleased with the warning, and I had plenty of advanced warning. I did get it on my dash cam, and I will upload it likely by this weekend. I have started turning the TFSR off on the interstate/highway, but I still tend to turn TFSR on in the city. I have gone back to experimenting with the settings on my CR97 again....lol. I normally leave FDSr/FDSR off all of the time. I don’t really mess with the settings too much with my Max360c or R3. I am still trying to figure out the “optimal” settings for me to use on the CR97.I don't know why I didn't try K band off with the 97 before now! There is no reason at all for it to still show K band with it off just because FDSR is on, but it does! It's a glitch that should not happen. X band doesn't do a damn thing whether it's off or not. I never run it, It's crazy enough without adding X band into the mix!
