Just a couple of observations on the drive home from MMiddletown , NY this afternoon.
Heading West on I84 around 3 miles East of exit 2 I started getting Ka 34.72...after about a mile saw NYSP with a customer on the East-bound side, outside shoulder.
Really liking the wee DFR7 as it sniffed the Ka 34.72 spew across the rather wide median area ( which is quite brushy with quite a few trees in that area)!
It was like: Where's the Leo...where are Ya?
Lol!
Then...There's the source, way up ahead and clear across the rather wide substantial ( tree and shrub filled) median.
I noticed the frequency changing back and forth between 34.72 and 34.84 (IIRC).....I realize that the freq readout on the DFR7 is only 2 places past the decimal point vs 3 on the more costly RD units....
I am really impressed with the minimal falsing. So far in Our area ( Where NJ, NY, and PA come together), I am running highway mode 95% of the time with K and Ka wide and only the K filter on.
It's really matching My Wife's and My definition of Functional!
Thanks again to All who patiently answered My questions and provided the pointers that have been really helpful!

P.S. Working on getting a dash-cam and learning to get video added to My notes.
I still need to learn how to add the Google map graphics and kewl annotations that Other talented Folks here use to make Their posts so Superb!!

Glad you are liking the DFR7, it's a really solid mid tier detector and provides solid coverage and it's pretty good on filtering too.

I had NYSP paint me twice while on I-84 back in October. Once with 34.718 a little bit before NY-208 at Montgomery, and then 34.735 a little bit before NY-311.
