Though not used everywhere in the State or as often as it used to be, X Band is still being used in South Carolina. I have to turn that band back on in the V1 when I visit our son in South Carolina. IIRC I was on US17 the last time I was hit by X band last year in SC as well as US378 between Columbia and Sumter.

That is correct Transporter. They do still use X band in some small towns throughout South Carolina. Especially some of the small towns along US 378 & HWY 501

Had an encounter with a Surfside Beach LEO in Conway running Ka 34.77 C/O. He was just passing through and a little out of his jurisdiction.

South Carolina Highway Patrol with a customer on HWY 501. Unmarked Black Chevy Tahoe with regular SC Tag. Was not running radar as I passed bye so I still have no idea of what band or frequency he's running. This is only the second time seeing this LEO in my area.

My latest new find from my local city PD.Unsure if it is traffic control equipped. I have only seen it one other time and it was pulled behind a vehicle with flashing lights on. Passed by it so fast that day I was unable to tell if it was a Ford or Chevy. Now I know.

Interesting info on Horry County Police. Did you know the Horry County Police Department is the only remaining county police department in the State of South Carolina. HCPD primarily focuse on responding to calls for service, traffic enforcement, patrol duties and criminal investigations.

All other counties in SC are under the command of that counties Sheriff's Department.

There is also an Horry County Sheriff's Department responsible for numerous task including courthouse security, processing warrants, fingerprinting, registration of sex offenders, funeral escorts, background checks and managing the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.

Thanks for all of this information! I just purchased a Uniden R7. I live in Murrells Inlet, SC but frequently travel between Pawleys, Myrtle Beach, Conway, Surfside, etc. Any tips on setting this thing up? I'm getting a lot of K band from stores and such. I have it in advanced mode with K band set at 50% sensitivity currently.

Hi @acuuisross . Welcome to the RDF. Nice purchase. R7 is the current badass RD. Your settings look good. You can do lockouts for stores and other falses. You can find just about anything here on the RDF. Vortex Radar has a YouTube channel loaded with info. I use a DFR9 so my knowlodge is nul for an R7.
