You are not voicing a “Whistler dixie” by not bringing up a name?Mine was a POS that I won't name here as the company is represented on this forum. It was SO bad that it didn't have a signal strength meter or different tones for X & K!
After that it was a Uniden or Cobra. I eventually graduated to the original Escort (yes I am THAT old!) to a Passport then back to Escort. I thought that the Escort had better "range" than the Passport.
Then it was V1...and multiple V1s until the V1G2.
I have one of the these Super Buster XKs in my collection of old XK band radar detectors. I checked it out, and there is no serial number or manufacturer nameplate in the detector. I bought it on EBay probably 20 or so years ago. According to the radar detector museum, it was made by Cynex Manufacturing out of New Jersey.I'm surprised how many have experience with the Fuzzbuster (it was amazing for its time), but I don't recall this one. Who made it and when was it used?
Thanks. It does look like something out of the 70's when most of the units were huge. I can't remember ever seeing that one so I was curious who made it.I have one of the these Super Buster XKs in my collection of old XK band radar detectors.

It was probably used in the early to mid 1970’s. I forget what year K-band started to be used for traffic enforcement. My Super Buster XK still powers up and alerts to both X and K band radar. With it being an old “passive” detector, I pretty much had to point the radar gun antenna at the radar detector antenna to get it to alert, but mine still works.

I had the remote version of this on my motorcycle. It was passive detector. It was replaced later with a superhet detector of which I don't remember the brand.Approximately 1982/83: Fox XK - Crap, but their advertising got me, and I think it was a few hundred dollars. It had a manual squelch that you had to set until it JUST stopped alarming. The higher the squelch, the stronger the signal required to set it off. Needless to say, I was always checking the squelch setting.
Moved to a Cobra that worked very well, then into a high end Bel (made in Canada, but cheaper to import by mail from the states even with all taxes and duties). Currently I don't have a RD, but pretty sure my next one will be Theia for about $500,000 Canadian
