    Overthinking or is the range too low on my R3...

    Got a great deal on a USED r3 as an upgrade for my DFR7. Been running it for a couple months and it has failed to impress me. Had a couple detections today that made me uneasy. First was I\O from a MO trooper. Saw him in a construction zone littered with K falses (will be posting a warning...

    I have had multiple detections from the Missouri Highway Patrol in the past month and they all have been rolling I/O these guys are top notch and not lazy. They pace or scout out potential targets from behind and bam they nail them from behind with I/o. Just a fair warning as I’m noticing this...

    Anyone know what radar is used in the infamous Estelline? (pic attached)

    I recently read about the infamous panhandle speed trap in Estelline. I was trying to figure out what equipment they used there, but couldn't find a good pic anywhere online. I did find a pic of their old Charger (Mustang GT is used now) and would love to know what the radar unit is. It kind of...

    No Alert from Regular Speed Trailer?

    Drove by a regular old speed trailer today and nothing from my DFR7 even though the sign read my speed. I was like huh? Then I thought it could be X or a wide K. I decided to enable X Band, turn off k filter, enable K wide. Still, no alert. I am really puzzled as to how my detector wouldn't pick...

    Why does the Pennsylvania State Police almost only use K and not KA handhelds?

    I'm always interested in learning about the gear agencies use (as many of you are). I'm aware that only PSP is allowed to use radar in PA and it is supposed to be handheld. From what I have seen through research and browsing this forum, it is always a K band gun. Why? If they're going to be...

    MO: Aerial Vascar on I-55 in South St Louis County

    Aerial VASCAR isn't too common and can easily be overlooked. If you live near South St Louis County or ever plan to travel through it, be warned! Twice in the past month or so, I have seen the Missouri Highway Patrol using a plane for speed enforcement. They tend to go after those heading on...

    DFR7 Signal Hopping?

    My DFR7 did something very strange tonight when picking up a Stalker gun. I know that Stalkers signal hop, but what was showing up on my detector was weird. It started out as 34.68 which is nothing odd. Then it started jumping back in forth in signal between all of these weird illegitimate...

    DFR7 GPS Lockout Near Legit K Threat?

    When I commute back and forth between school, one of my biggest potential threats Stationary K band from what I think is a Kustom Raptor. What is I believe less than a mile, maybe only half a mile from the typical spot where the cop sits is a terrible K false from a Sam's Club off the highway...

    Multiple Occurrences of Out of Tune Stalkers in St. Louis MO Area

    Lately, I've seen a few out of tune Stalkers in the cities of Sunset Hills and Arnold. 34.83 and 34.84 I believe. It's safe to say, my DFR7 will stay in Ka wide. Just a heads up if you live in the area or will be passing through. If you're passing through, I wouldn't worry too much about the...

    Out of tune Stalker on I-75 in northern FL

    I decided to run my DFR7 on Ka wide for this trip just in case, and it provided for a good encounter. I know that out of tune radar is typically found in NY and such, but I saw it on Saturday in Northern FL on I-75. If I remember correctly, we were north of Gainesville. Maybe it was near Lake...

    A Couple More DFR7 Encounters That Confused Me (Videos Included)

    After getting lunch today, I had some time to kill before my next class. So, I wanted to do some tests and analysis with the DFR7. Excuse the camera work (I do not have a dash cam yet). I did not pay attention to what I was filming much as driving was my priority lol. I did a preliminary loop of...

    Too Low of Range or Typical for an Encounter Like Today's? (DFR7)

    Was on my way home today hauling ass with the DFR7 and had my eyes peeled as usual. I can see my exit and immediately noticed what looked like the top of an SUV parked on the side of the exit's overpass. Uh oh, Possibly an LEO shooting laser. Didn't have Waze on today and since it's my exit, I...

    Hello from St. Louis!

    Hey everyone, I decided to join this forum after a lot of browsing and learning about detectors, jammers, and LEO detection methods. I actually became interested in all of this after getting a ticket! Being a broke college student I can't afford a detector right now, but I still enjoy reading...
