    "Out of Tune" misconception

    After seeing it multiple times here in the forums I realized that there must be a misconception that police radar MUST operate on a certain frequency in it's respective band or it gets labeled as "Out of Tune" That could not be further from the truth and hopefully I will clear it up. This will...

    Other Nothing too exciting. Just a cop with no headlights driving in the dark.

    So I was on my way to work yesterday, I came across this... in case you missed it there is a motorcycle in front of the white SUV, I do not know if it was a wreck or some kind of medical emergency as there was no mention in the local paper or on the news.

I intentionally ran my DFR7 with no filtering on KA band and KA wide trying to catch a video as I see a lot of people questioning odd frequencies that just seem way out of whack.

    DFR7/LRD950 Wide/Narrow question

    I know the R's are getting all the love as of late but has anyone confirmed what the spectrum width on K and Ka is with Narrow "ON" and if it does narrow it down or just sweeps the entire spectrum and ignore outside certain parameters? or is it a dead issue. I've seen the posts about the R's...
