    Welcome to the forum! Some of us North American DFR7 users have converted our units to New Zealand spec as it offers features that aren't available in the U.S. version such as Ka band segmentation... if you want to go down the rabbit hole: https://www.rdforum.org/threads/93228/ :D

    Laser in Oregon?

    Can confirm. Today as I was driving up I-5 North towards portland I got hit with Laser from LE in the opposite lane at the top of the on-ramp headed south @the intersection of 217 & I-5. I was speeding but fortunately there's no way he could have gotten on I-5 south and then turned around and...

    At all 3 intersections there are red light cameras in both directions. so approaching those intersections from either direction... SW or NE you have a red light camera facing you across the intersection on the right side and on the left side as well for the left turn lanes. According to the...

    Do you hide your detector when you park?

    my car isn't a daily driver... and i only use my rd when i'm going to be on the highway or open roads... so it's not in use that often. as such... i feel like it's not that big of a deal to yank it off the windshield if i'm going to be away from the car for more than a few minutes.

    Interconversion of a DFR7 US model to a DFR7 NZ

    so i successfully tuned my DFR7... it was a chore. first i had to convert back to US firmware. after that i got in my car to find a reliable and consistent source to get my US based frequencies... after i did that i converted the DFR7 back to NZ firmware. then came the fun part. the tuning...

    Interconversion of a DFR7 US model to a DFR7 NZ

    has anyone made any progress re-tuning their DFR7 since the above discussion about what the other screws do in relation to the center screw? i haven't retuned mine yet b/c i was waiting to see if there was any further progress made by anyone here...

    Interconversion of a DFR7 US model to a DFR7 NZ

    can you link the post with the instructions to convert back to US spec? this seems like a fun project. i will convert back to US spec.... go to my known radar source and get the correct frequency... then i will convert back to NZ and unscrew everything and take it back to the radar source and...

    Interconversion of a DFR7 US model to a DFR7 NZ

    the only way i will know for sure is with some long term testing and log keeping. my car isn't a daily driver and i don't encounter much radar until i'm out on the highways for road trips. i think what i will do is keep all the segments on for a while and start to keep track of what frequencies...

    Interconversion of a DFR7 US model to a DFR7 NZ

    the problem i have is even if i wanted to tune it properly i don't have a radar source to test against to make sure it was done properly... as i said in an earlier post... i don't mind having to add a few more segments to scan to cover the +/- based on everything i've read... it's still...

    Interconversion of a DFR7 US model to a DFR7 NZ

    as far as i know the conversion works with windows only. stuff like this... is why i keep a cheap windows machine around... i don't use it that much... my main machines are mac's. but it's nice to have the windows laptop lying around for scenarios like this.

    Interconversion of a DFR7 US model to a DFR7 NZ

    thanks again for your hard work on this! i would imagine that most people are like me... and don't mind having to include an extra segment or two to cover +/- .04 of a variance as opposed to cracking the thing open and having a go at fine tuning. i recently was able to confirm accurate red...
