I don't think it is safe to turn off K band almost anywhere at this point..

I'm always shocked at the number of people that I find out have a radar detector and run around with K band turned off. Especially up here in New England. I can't fathom how many alerts they might be completely missing...

With the lack of space in the new patrol cars, or SUV’s, I can definitely see patch antenna’s such as the K Band 24.125 Raptors and Falcons starting to gain traction again. Especially on the installed versions more so the handheld versions.
With the amount of radar detectors on the market, and the amount of people tuning off K band due to BSM noise, it allows them to hide in the weeds.

Saw rolling K-band @ 24.124 around Palmer MA, just figured I'd let ya'll know
That seems to be the frequency range around here both city of port st lucie k band 24.133k, and 24.138 k fhp.
Is that a particular gun....Its low powered i notice.... they hide near a speed sign to blend in so you ignore it, but the r3 sniffed out both the sign frequency and his k band gun frequency. Set at 60% k band narrow, k filter on,

Based on the tech specs, the Stalker Patrol and Decatur guns seemed to be centered at 24.150, while the Kustom guns are centered around 24.125. I see mostly Decatur guns in my area, with a few Raptor RP-1's thrown in. The Kustoms seem to stay very close to the 24.125 center frequency, while the Decaturs seem to be all over the place in the K Band. I do not believe I have ever encountered a Stalker Patrol, so I don't have input there. And of course, all of this is anecdotal.

I'm in NYC and I'd say it is pretty safe to turn it off as long as you are within the city limits. It cuts down on the constant chatter (although K-block helps a lot) from this band. Can even make it upstate on a few of the main roads that are only patrolled by state police and have K off (since they are all stalker 34.7 and laser).

However, the downside of having it off and being nice and quiet, is that you have to remember to turn it back on once you go near the local roads outside of the city. There are certainly real threats that I have encountered on K-band in the smaller towns.

I even got a state trooper using X band on the sprain about 10 years ago when I reset my V1 and didnt have X band turned off. Got me scared that i should have X band on, but it would have been impossible to bear with the constant falsing back then.

K band FHP? Where , I have never seen a FHP running K band
Me neither till a month ago.... they run it between st. lucie west blvd exit. I 95 north to midaway in ft. pierce. They are on waze everyday all day all night. fhp hides behind the k band construction zone for miles its 60 and they tag with laser atlanta both north and south and lately multiple k band units with ka band! Its alot of fun lol... I drive daily twice through the gauntlet. Its on waze. 24.133k, 34.7ka, laser atlanta all day everyday
I had to confirm when my r3 was spitting 24.133k, and my speedsign already in automute, Looking for him and there are multiple units using this k band method hiding behind sign. Im native floridian and havent seen k band with fhp till here and its unmarked black charger hiding with marked units nailing 1 after another.
Glad the r3 has the mark , mute button--for speed sign, confirming getting hit with k band 24.133k range with my eyes and detector i couldnt believe it either! They are in median i meant to say like usualy but the speed sign gives them cover then nailed with k band fhp 1st encounter was close... i almost pushed it off as a false...thankfully I didnt, he pulled someone else, when i turned around he was writing the ticket, and confirmed the 24.133k band fhp. both unmarked and marked. only seen k band in that spot ever in florida by fhp. Port st lucie cops using same k band frequency too(although most are I/O ka band units or C/O Ka band in city...still was so impressed with the r3 range at 60% it gave me more k band warning than my redline in k band full chatty and all.
I confirmed daily and always the ka, k band duo, the laser only hit once so far.. JTK

If the roads werent wet ide be making my usual 715pm drive haha

If you are absolutely sure this is a game changer, I have not, in my 20 years living in Miami seen a FHP with K band, he would probably be the only one, you can only hope, but FHP doesn't just buy one K band unit.

I thought they had a contract with stalker .

I thought the same thing brother, but I can confirm marked and unmarked using 24.133k band only in that 60mph zone between st. lucie west blvd exit north and south everyday 24/7. on waze. I drive twice daily, all fhp use laser/ka band in florida but something changed as ive been running this gauntlet confirmed with detector and eyes k band FHP. Right at Midway substation for fhp area.
Anyways, I wouldnt lie about this, I founf it shocking that they were using k band(hiding their signal with the k band road speed signs 4 of these signs both north and south polluting k band so most would think it a false... nope...I locked out the speedsigns and first saw the fhp in median shooting k band, pulling peeps over, onto the next. I was shocked. The first time this happened i had to visually see it which i did as he nailed me(wasnt speeding, the r3 alerted well ahead of the speed signs and in threat mode 2 other k band 24.133k (fhp) using it and nailing peeps.
I lived in miami, Boca, Port st. lucie, vero, melbourne, jacksonville, pasco county- new port richey, gainesville. Always ka or laser. Im just reporting what i have confirmed almost on a daily basis. Dont know if its just here but they are using K band

And Im not going to purposely get a ticket to prove fhp busted me with k band haha lol

@venom.... just got home from vero, and speedsigns along with the fhp k band are gone! they moved a little north on 95 in ft pierce to vero....
so back to ka, laser. for past couple months they were using k band but the signs were removed today and speed back to 70.

I drove tonight and they were nailing peeps in vero left and right(last day of the month) I saw something I never saw tonight in vero too.
There was a sherriff on the vero bch 95 northbound exit parked using some speed device???(my r3 was silent as well as laser) but the way he was positioned on the ramp and looking at waze he was using the onramp using radar or laser prolly hitting cars going northbound on 95 as he was hidden from there view. ahead were about 5 fhp chase cars. all had peeps pulled over...I turned southbound to port st lucie and went home-but i never saw that method before.(gonna get rear jammers now too in case he was using laser to the rear of cars passing him, then telling his fhp buddies to go get em as my r3 was silent??
thats the only reason i can think of unless he was waiting to start using radar again as all the chase cars were busy.
anyways, k band sign is gone along with that k band fhp as of tonight.!
