Weekend is normally a day for extra enforcement on the roads. All C/O on this occasion.

How are you finding your Netradar DSP? I'm also in NZ and thinking of purchasing one. Did you buy the Hifi and BT modules?

I noticed you picked up a Reflex Camera. I was intending on only running Ka as I don't really want to run BT with a phone to remember the K band falses. Is that what you are doing?

I love it. I got sick and tired of the sticky cup on the windshield, and removing and reattaching whatever radar detector I was using due to risk of theft. I have the BT, no hifi and run it most of the time via a dedicated phone. Netradar with the notch filters set really cuts out the K falses. However, important to note that the netradar only goes down to 24.050, so you will miss out on most, if not all the redflex vans which often run below 24.050. What I do is setup the profiles (you can set 3) one with Ka only and one with Ka + K. If I am hanging around city centre, I'll switch to Ka only.

Thanks for that. I didn't realise they only go down to 24.050 but if I only run it for Ka then it doesn't matter anyway. Did you notice a change in performance upgrading from the non-DSP? Its a shame you didn't have the DSP for the test you ran in Auckland (very interesting by the way). For Ka do you just run Ka 5 or is that too narrow?

Your Police Escort failed to maintain lane discipline, failed to signal right until already in right lane, failed to signal left when pulling over, and possibly pulled an illegal U-turn. By my eyes they looked to be a good candidate for a field sobriety test under the drink driving law. Of course, for your own safety, you would need to search their vehicle for any contraband and add those charges to the driving infractions.

Thanks for the video, good stuff there. I'm grateful I'm not facing Redflex or the like on my regular commute.

I’d say upgrading from non-dsp, yes, definite difference in both range and sensitivity. I run Ka 5 and 6- just in case. I’ve seen a few higher end out of tune guns.

Agreed! I am sure people have been pulled over for much less.
