Unlikely, the lowest I’ve seen is 34.6xx

Interesting, I assumed all Ka alerts were genuine since it is a restricted frequency, but obviously there's stuff out there to cause false positives.

Could have been a leaky cheap detector such as a Cobra, or those ones you buy on aliexpress.

Yes, I have seen the odd low K band false on the DFR9forNZ. Most of us on the R7s and R3s run Ka segmentation, which the DFR9 doesn't have. I might limit the limit on Ka for the DFR9forNZ. The DFR9 does sometimes report the incorrect Ka frequencies before correcting and adjusting itself. In my video here testing the Ka range on an original US DFR9 you can hear an extra blip when the Ka frequency gets updated (at about 6:00 in the video):


The DFR9forNZ is not perfect. But the range on the DFR9 and the ability to pick up redflex and extra quiet on K band still makes it a pretty decent bit of kit.

Guys, I'm probably going to force myself offline for a week or two. I'm busy working in the background on the next R7 update. This is another big update, and has lots of new gps features. However, the more time I spend responding to peoples PMs in the background, the less code I get chance to write!

If anyone sees some new members, looking for my help, perhaps someone could kindly let them know I may not be able to reply straight away. I just want to finish development and testing all the new features before I can start building all the 128 features and segmentation back in.

Interesting!

and full USA spec 33.4 - 36.0 GHz K band, and as per my post in the other thread, it has 10 Ka segs, not like the R7 that has had the top end of Ka robbed to lower K band.

Really a bummer for Uniden NZ if the NZ cops go for all laser cams now to replace Redflex, or MRCT who's 3 K band channels span between 24.075 - 24.175 GHz, and don't need expanded K low.

If you find out the company that's providing the average speed/P2P cams, and it's Jenoptik, you could end up with TraffiStar S350 (very similar to poliscan) or MRCD / MRCT based radar cams.

@Mithheru, notice X band has been deleted also.
Yeah, I guess they noted I removed X band on the DFR9forNZ!

I'm keeping X band on the R7 International. I've never tested it, but assume it works. The new GPS features are fantastic. Tested 600m GPS alert for urban 50km redflex speed camera. No over speed warning kicking in until 300m. Display shows you actual speed, and the posted limit. Plays a tone to tell you once you've past the line of sight of the camera. Uniden NZ can't use these features, as they just don't have them, and it requires a completely new build of database, with a lot more accuracy than Uniden NZ can get for any of their current locations.

New GPS features look fantastic @Mithheru, great work as always. Did everybody see over on the Uniden forum that Tom from BRD said "any day now" referring to auto lockouts being released. @Mithheru do you think auto lockouts will be able to be incorporated in your new firmware or will there be an issue with memory capacity? Perhaps X band deletion may provide enough space?

A couple of positive hits below 34.7 this morn.
Highway Patrol C/O 34.663 heading southbound around Meremere.

I/O shots of 34.669 in 3-5 sec bursts from from Manukau to Highbrook.
Looked like a dark colored SUV, Equinox perhaps.

Redline ProA.

Last Friday night 7:55pm had a 34.706 hit.
Commodore S/W about 300 meters ahead hit the disco lights, did a U turn & chased after someone on Harris Rd.

The last few days noticing the Ka frequencies getting lower.
Anyone else seeing this trend?

Has anyone noticed a strange Ka alert at Woods Bay, north of Thames? I got a 34.706 through there on Friday around 10.00AM, and again coming back on Monday about the same time, same place. No sign of a cop, but one could have been parked out of sight at one of the houses.
