Last night I was pulling into my drive way and bam full on Ka alert. Escort Live showed the radar source to be in my drive way. I took a screen shot of Escort Live and of the 360c screen at the time. This is my seconde 360c as I gave the other to my Son. I remember the first one doing the same. Now that I think of it, it could be my reverse proximity sensor of my car.

If you could find out the frequency (set your display to show it), that would be helpful. It is DISH-TV, or some other satellite service, if it turns out to be in the range of 33.748-33.749 GHz.

It can also be 35.8xx+ if it's a dish as well. Get the frequency and let us know.

Btw I recommend removing the street/park name in your screenshot

I have also had some unexplained 35.386 alerts as well. Could those possibly be a dish?

Not sure, but it can depend on what transmissions aliens are sending over to us ;)

One thing to remember is Escort Live shows where your RD alerted, not where the source really is. When I had my 360 there was an issue where a strong K band would cause the signal received by the 360 to bleed over to Ka band. Basically it overloads the RD.

Is it possible this is occurring as a result of his car pulling up the the walls and door of his garage, reflecting all the BSM's back at the RD?

To the OP. When you pull into your driveway is it at an incline, decline, or straight?

Its a small incline not much. I have a double care garage.

I have recently changed the settings to show the frequency. If it alerts the same way I'll be sure and capture it.

I could not find that DISH-TV or DIRECT-TV use the KA Band in that 3x.xx range.
But maybe it's a 'leaking' satellite receiver or LNB?

DIRECTV uses two sections of Ka bandwidth. 18.3 - 18.8 GHZ and another 500 MHz band at 19.7 to 20.2.

Definitely get falses from my dish, everytime I pull out of my driveway.
33.7XX is a harmonic from the local ocilatormajig.

I've got 2 KA falses in my neighborhood w/ my DP 360 that I've never got with any other detector. This morning I had 33.7 in my driveway and last night I had 35.4 pulling out onto the street.
