Late at night on US-167 into the small town of Fordyce. Apparently there was only 1 car in between me and this sneaky Fordyce cop. Awesome stuff from the DFR7 here.

Very nice early sniff. it really helps to be in a rural area when dealing with kband, if you had been in the city you might have ignored that as a false. certian parts of my commute are through farm country, you get an alert out there you know it's very likely the real deal.

Save that video some place safe. It's cool that you caught some I/O K band but the real gem was hearing you talk your dad through what was going on and how shooting the cop with the Stalker. Absolutely priceless!

My friend's lease is just north of Fordyce off 167 and he said the Sheriff was really stepping up patrols. I'm sure they're getting ready for the flood of dear hunters.

Yeah, we had a good time! He clocked people with the new Stalker almost the entire 4 hour drive :) I think we have a new member...

Nice early sniff! What are your K band settings for this encounter?

Thanks, now you have me wondering if TSF on woulda picked that up, but I'm 99% sure it would have, sounds like he gave you a good long shot in the kill zone, the alert lasted about 8 seconds (although I forget the latch time of the DFR7; can someone please remind me).

I believe the latch is around 5 seconds or so.

I always ran TSF ON on my DFR6 and I sincerely believe my K band performance would have been better with it off. It just made such a big difference in falses in all the traffic I saw daily.

This here is a fantastic sniff for the DFR7. Honestly, I would have easily brushed off that first alert as a false in my neck of the woods. Although, 24.12x is right in Kustom low-power territory, and every single Falcon HR and Raptor RP-1 I have personally seen has been very tight to their center frequency. The Decaturs, not so much...

Great encounter! The DFR7 is still no slouch on K band. You're definitely gonna cherish moments like these with your old man someday. i know I love showing mine my countermeasure obsession.

You're right. Basically anywhere else besides a rural highway with no traffic, I would disregard a weak 5 second K band alert. I don't have to deal with K band traffic sensors, so I always leave TSR off.

Nice video. Thanks for posting. I'm collecting dashcam ambushes myself, and am about to post a few.

K Band is on the rise here. So is IO and Laser. Up until recently, it's been rare. I remember the days of nothing but CO Ka. Yesterday I was shot with IO K Band three times on my way home from work. Went cruising last night and got a sudden death IO Ka from a Statie "waste of tax payer money" POS. The Taconic Parkway was littered with these vultures last night. Too many encounters to post.

I don't call this use of tax payer dollars "public service". Nor are these "peace officers". They are doing neither. Nothing but harassment in a situation where there is no safety issue or danger being mitigated here. Just an over-budgeted police "force" preying on the public, interfering with traffic flow, and actually creating road hazards themselves. State government needs to cut this waste out! Texters and bad (dumb and dangerous) drivers go free, while the safest drivers (alert and watchful) get harassed around every bend. In this POLICE STATE, you need every CM defense you can get, and need the best for IO, K and laser. Clearly, these POS "highway robber tax collectors" have nothing better to do. I have a VERY LOW PUBLIC IMAGE of these non-public servants! They do no good, and raise my tax bill with wasted wages, benefits (for life) and over-the-top expensive equipment costs. GET RID OF THEM! We don't need them.
