Welcome to the forum @azzz. We're glad to have you join us. What type of radar or laser do you see in Bulgaria?
Hi,

Well, we have a mix of radars and also some laser tripods. The main thing is that all of the equipment is either stationary (fixed cameras) or on a tripod, or fixed in the patrol car. There are no handheld radar/laser guns.

Here is what we have:

X-band - some quite old radars, equipped also with a camera, mounted in patrol cars (or even unmarked cars). Usually working on I/O, but some time - continuously.

K-band - we have (old) mutiradar stationary cameras and we also have low-powered Cordon cameras on tripod (https://simicon.com/products/speed-and-traffic-enforcement/cordon-m/)

Ka-band - we have some of the patrol cars equipped with such radars, but they do not use them for some reason, so the Ka band can be safely turned off.

Laser - we have some ARH-S1 tripod cameras (http://www.arhungary.hu/doc/arh_s1camera.pdf)

The way the cameras are hidden is also different - outsinde of the road, in the bushes, on the back seat of the car trough a barely opened tinted window, etc.

Yep, I totally expect that.

The Whistler itself is not that bad, especially for driving in the city where I really don't need long range. It provides fairly decent warning which is enough to slow down a bit if needed.
The main issue is that the FDSR filter filters one of the radars used here (Cordon), so I need to turn it off. Because of that - I've setup it to ignore pulses shorted than a second (this is the "Filter 1" setting according to what they explained), in order to filter most of the BSM systems. Almost all of the radars here a running in continuous mode, and the rest, which are used mostly in instant-on mode are on X-band, so the distance there is quite good.
And the last issue is that with a high mount - the GPS really struggles to connect properly, so the low-speed muting cannot be used all the time.

Thanks for the info. It's always interesting to see what's used in different parts of the world. Here in the US, it's primarily Ka band with occasional k or x band (both stationary & moving) and a mix of laser guns around the country (gun type usually determined by contracts at the state level and always used stationary).
