So I haven't been running dash cam, and of course I'm getting all kinds of radar hits!

The other day I was going back to Charlotte from Greensboro NC. On 85 passing Grandover Resort. Coming up on a construction zone and my RedlineO starts alerting to 33.742... weird. I start looking around for a car with a Cobra. But, no Cobra! As we get closer to the construction, there's a LEO with his lights on, just to get people's attention. The ramp certainly indicated that the 33.8 was coming from the LEO. It looked like a local, not a NCHP.

I've never seen a legit 33.8 shot anywhere in NC, but I'm running seg 2 any way, under protest of course! Between this thread and @Bossdad71 's thread about a 34.3 something alert, I'm thinking about staying in the damn house!

Thanks for the heads up. I have heard this before, but now confirmed. The Raleigh area mostly 35.5 or 34.7. Wake Forest where I use to live does have one car with K band. That is the only K, I have ever encountered in NC.

I've been in CLT for the past five years (was in Gboro for like 10yrs), only legit K I've seen is Kannapolis police once or twice. I think Concord police use it around Concord Mills Mall, but I haven't been able to confirm that since there's so many possible sources of false K in that area

Well, look what the cat drug up! How many times have you seen 33.8? Dammit I guess we'll have to get a 33.8 gun now, won't we?

Been a few years in my corridor... been a lot of 35.5, 34.7 and some K world attacking my progress to go from A to B... can't forget a nice LIDAR avoidance to a Rabbit. Got the hit to the optics, but app doesnt do it thing like HiFi.

33.8 is active around Charlotte
CMPD, Davidson, and Cornelius all use that
Also used around Greensboro/Winston-Salem area as well.

I've seen CMPD using it on WT Harris near UNCC
@Choose Life had an encounter with CMPD 33.8 not too long ago on Independence

Other than that I haven't seen it much besides Davidson and Cornelius PD using it.

Interesting, I'll have to keep an eye out near UNCC, I'm there most of the week. I don't normally get near Independence

Several local departments have 33.8. Winston-Salem PD uses it. I’ve never seen it down around CLT. But, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it.
