I've owned and used a radar detector continuously since 1967. My first detector was a model called a Radar Sensor which ran on a battery.
It received X band and some other odd band no longer in use today. Yesterday I received my new R7 so here I am learning about all it's features....

I've a quite a few in between, but I do wish I still have the first one, it would be a real conversation piece...

Funny, I don't remember the name of the Escort, it was the black box with the orange bulb on the unit. So in curious fashion I also bought the copy cat Cobra with the yellow bulb on it on the opposite side of the black box. Aw the memories. LOL.

There is a bit of history on the internet about Radatron and those units. S band at 2.4 Ghz?????
Yep, that was the odd band I didn't remember along with X band.
The unit never distinguished between bands but X band was popular one back then...
