    Net Radar Ka Band Question

    Guys, Took the system out for a 300 mile trip. Only have the KA on the NR, and at times I just got One Beep or Two and the signal went away. It might have been a weak one really far away. Usually if there is a ramp up, it leads to a Valid threat. Any idea why am I picking up this weak signal...

    Learned a New Trick

    Guys, I learned something new today. K narrow band 2 has all the radar guns. The rest of the narrow bands on K are useless. This helps cut down falses from doors etc. Gonna test it out for a few weeks. Cheers,
