Hi folks, I got some pretty high 34.8s in the Oamaru area with visual confirmation. Would highly recommend switching on segment 6 Ka (most detectors) if you’re not already running it.

Yep, I've seen 34.8xx and 34.5xx over the years in Wellington with visual confirmation too. I wonder if you were clocked above PSL by a Stalker unit at 34.8xx, you would have a case against them as the tolerance is 34.700ghz +-100mhz meaning anything outside 34.600 & 34.800 is technically out of tune and could be giving inaccurate readings.

The issue is proving it. They'll present calibration certificates, we can only say I saw such and such freq on my radar detector. That won't fly with the JP's in district court.

Look up posts made by the user here Token. He made an excellent post regarding speed readings with guns out of tune. It doesn't make a difference at all on what the officer clocks a car at

Also keep in mind that NZ Police are authorised to use 34.400 to 35.100.

@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

Yikes, yeah that is way off. I will put in an edit. Let me know if I made a mistake or if you want stuff edited.

How do you propose someone going to court and proving such a thing when the LEO has a calibration cert?

No much of anything you can do here in NY, but I suspect its an uphill battle no mater where you propose to do this as @LouG said.

What would actually work that someone has done before to get the ticket tossed? It does not appear to be that simple for most locations, much less possible for other locations.

I have had a couple at 35. Something from police in wellington i turned on the extra segment as I heard that the stalkers can sometimes run a little high

I've had several 35.xxx falses. none were ever confirmed, and it appears they were Whistler falses. I reverted to sweeps from 34.400 - 34.899. The cops don't run 35.xxx here, although they are permitted to run up to 35.100. To my knowledge no guns run at 35.100.
