    34.7 falses on the NY Thruway - safe to lock them out?

    Yes, they used to alternate the booth lane directions depending on peak traffic flow so the striping on the approach to the split was not great. They haven't really done that in a while, unless something broke down on one lane. They switched over to cashless tolling this weekend, and all boths...

    34.7 falses on the NY Thruway - safe to lock them out?

    So I drove by exit 19 about five times this weekend. I was paying close attention to the frequency and noticed it is in fact the same exact frequency all the time. After closer inspection it definitely is the wrong way alert, I saw the antenna myself mounted on the led sign. All these years...

    34.7 falses on the NY Thruway - safe to lock them out?

    I drive past I-87 exit 19 a few times a week. The troopers are continuously parked there with radar on all the time since their barracks are there . Do not lock it out. If there's a second signal It should beep with the bogey alert. Additionally they patrol route 28 and 209 heavily which...

    R7 FW 133.141.113 - New K Filter Discussion

    i know its anecdotal, but even with K band at 30% on the new FW it is way too chatty. the previous version was tolerable but needed improvement, this seems like a step in the wrong direction. i had to turn k band off now since its falsing so often (in nyc so not a real risk). hope i remember...

    What messed me up is the factory reset I did... Haven't done that since new, but it does seem a little convoluted now.

    Uniden R7 - Firmware Change-log and Outstanding Issues

    Is the dark mode working correctly on 1.33? When I turn on the detector it stays in dark mode for a few seconds (Flashes between left middle and right with the rest of the display blank) and then it switches to scan mode or whatever setting is picked for display on the firmware. I don't see...

    R7 FW 133.141.113 - New K Filter Discussion

    IIRC, the 2 beep only works if you are using the factory default tone for k band alert.

    MRCD testing - R1/R3 FW 1.53 vs MultaRadarCD

    Good to know. I just got around to updating to 1.53 since 1.33 for the R7 came out, did em both at once. The mrct cameras in NYC are spreading like crazy. Waze is good at giving alerts but it's usually a half mile in advance and when you're in traffic and getting off and exit you kind of...

    Scanners Still Useful?

    Do any of these handhelds have GPS built in? a quick googling showed a lot of the unidens needing an external antenna. i have an older scanner i programmed manually from radioreference and a ham license so i can technically drive around with one, despite silly NY laws

    Scanners Still Useful?

    What app is that saying "police reported 30 minutes ago 1.5mi ahead i95 sb" it's sounds like a way not detailed waze.

    New V1 Generation 2 FAQ

    I don't have a BT adapter for my gen1, so I've never been able to use any of the apps. Will eventually go to the car and check. Then I'll come back asking what it's missing vs the last gen1 😋
