    Dodgy van K band detection and frequencies in NZ - Observations and developments

    Option 1 appears the most logical from a end user point of view, if within specified ranges then it is considered and locked out when appropriate. Option 3 might provide the option for niche use case scenarios by locking outside of range for technically aware users however using lockout space...

    Dodgy van K band detection and frequencies in NZ - Observations and developments

    Confirm last two weekends between Wellington and Wairarapa using SH2 only had red van encounters, no others. k band detection was as normal on the R7 ie just enough range.

    Best to add segment 6

    @dudeinnz good to know thanks! If you do think there is consensus that based on this new information KA band 6 is now recommended in NZ, are you able to arrange an update to the RDFGS NZ and Australia area so that new users do not miss this? Cheers

    Radar Detector Recommendation for Vengeance

    A remote mounted R7 install requires a Smartcord, weatherplastic enclosure, audio cable into cabin, volume mixer and a small powered speaker. Importing the parts add say NZ $500 to the cost of the NZ$1300 R7, plus does need your planning and install time to get discretely setup in grill area...

    Dodgy van K band detection and frequencies in NZ - Observations and developments

    @Mithheru saw this video from Jon at Radenso on radar signal attenuation with different materials as well as vertical vs horizontal signals. Right at the end he shows that glass attenuates by about 2-2.5db (and plastic is pretty much zero). Like vertical mounting every little bit helps...

    New R7 worked a treat...

    One way to look at what local Redflex has achieved... they have already optimised low power speed detection to probably the maximum limits of that tech, leaving little additional to tweak. It isn't easy to learn how to beat it but the 0.5% in NZ now know we can beat it in most situations...

    DFR7NZ - Settings? Vertical Mount suggestion?

    Hi, if you are in NZ then you only need K1 on, not K2, as Reflex operates at lower K frequencies

    First post on the forum - Potentially ambitious project

    Attached a Zip file for anyone keen to find a good sized black case and summary of a build to remotely control a Uniden R7. Vertical mounting was essential for Redflex low power K in NZ to get 200m range. It was tricky to fit in so I had to remove the top of the R7 unit, but that did aid in...

    New Firmware for New Zealand users - Uniden R7 - Beta testing

    Makes sense there shouldn't be difference between versions and we have determined the best settings for Redflex range. So outside of that you've got me wondering if there might be a db or two's sensitivity difference by having my remote R7 vertical outside in the grill (so not going through...

    New Firmware for New Zealand users - Uniden R7 - Beta testing

    @Mithheru, that does look a little too short for comfort on the R7. Perhaps you and I do a head to head comparison shootout on both our R7s with the next weekend camera van you or I see? I'm still on 124 (NZ) and haven't felt compelled to move yet :) Will discuss when we catch up.

    New Firmware for New Zealand users - Uniden R7 - Beta testing

    Yes however from reports that 129 MRCD change now appears to take extra time for filtering/validation to determine it’s the more complex MRCD signal, that also slows Redflex alerting. You really need every second against Redflex in NZ, Aust etc. From that posting... “I just tested it as well...

    New Firmware for New Zealand users - Uniden R7 - Beta testing

    @Mithheru Suggest this more depends on whether you want the possibility of worldwide firmware or to create, maintain support different firmware for different countries/states. You already have a taste of the specific range requests the latter approach will create, letting an international user...

    New Firmware for New Zealand users - Uniden R7 - Beta testing

    I agree with your assessment of the 3 vans, those are all I have seen too in Wgtn. Unfortunately I cannot see the frequencies (as they are hidden due to my remote setup) but would probably start with your recommendation as it should eliminate falses and make most if not all detections valid.

    That's a glass is half full view of the situation, I hope the 30% of users are adopting a positive approach to this too :) 1590646564

    Hi Mithheru, if you are looking beyond just NZ, then the frequency needs and what the settings mean will get complex quickly. Can I suggest maybe a 2nd stage of your (amazing) work, to have 2 user set variables in the Menu interface, comprising a lower and upper K frequency to alert to. Having...

    Similar but even more segmented. The NZ Firmware only has 2 faily wide segments, K1 and K2. K1 only is needed for NZ threats, but it still is (arguably) a lot wider than it really needs to be, compared to the much narrower and tightly specified 'K Quiet' and 'K Super Quiet' options Mithheru...
