Passed a Town of Ulster (NY) marked Exploder running 24.050 K band (C/O moving) yesterday. Lowest Stalker Patrol reading I've seen :oops:

Lowest I have seen that i know is a Patrol is 24.107. Most are close to Spec I generally see 24.117-24.135, but some of them have been in service for over 2 years now so who knows what the State "Safety" department is doing when they "recertify" these guns. No one can get a copy of the cert, so they must re tune the guns and ship them back out.

There was a cruiser around me that was in the 24.06X range... havent run into him in a while, hopefully it's been in for cert and they retuned it towards a more normal value :)

The first one that showed up in Town of Saugerties several years ago (and is still in service) displays 24.080 - 24.090. Which is the lowest I'd seen till this one.

What detector were you running?

Thanks for the heads up.

I always tell people, keep k wide for those “just because moments.”

I have seen a few low ones from Warwick and Ramapo, NYS over the border(Orange/Rockland). Scary stuff for sure.

My experience as well, but the latest (#5) that Saugerties got last year runs 24.162 - 24.172

Sorry to bump this thread, but I discovered this last night and figured this would be a good place to add it.

Looking at Stalker's website, the Patrol antennas listed as an operating frequency of 24.150. I always thought from reading here that they were 24.125, just like the Kustom low-power antennas. That makes this even scarier that a relatively new antenna was reporting down so low.

The Stalker patrol unit I come by reads 24.080-24.120 but is usually on the lower side.

I have seen k band as low as 24.03#. Granted that was years ago with my redline O. I have not seen any this low in a very long time.

I remember making a thread on it because I didn’t think the redline scanned that low.

Ran across the same Exploder in Ulster again yesterday, still 24.050. This has to be a virtually brand new Stalker Patrol, as Town of Ulster is nearly all 34.7 Stalkers. K band is a new phenomena there.

Appreciate it.... I have a trip to Margaretville at the end of September. Will report back. Gotta deal with that insanely low k band and chargers running I/O Ka.

Yep! I remember that guy. 24.069, lowest I've ever seen.
Haven't run into him in well over a year now either.

I got hit with 24.111 today on the interstate today. I was running R7 in highway. A couple of beeps, then a gradual ramp up. Probably a 2 mile detection. Love R7 on K band! I was I could run V1.2 w/ K Verifier off.
