^ Thanks.

I'll cross-post within the next couple of days - starting up a new protocol here at work (yep, I'm workin', right now!), so it's been kinda crazy.

It's funny, and humbling, to start completely anew, without any idea of what one's doing.

These losses may not be across all bands but may be specific to a band or for Ka may be specific to a range of frequencies within the Ka band while other areas of Ka may or may not be affected.

It is best to move the unit into a clear opening

Second best is to make sure you leave at least 1 inch of a gap behind any low loss materials.

If you mount behind metallic paint you are not doing yourself any favors regardless of leaving a gap.

If you mount behind chromated plastic, you can forget about any advanced warning as the chrome will prevent the radar signal from passing.


Good thing I just read this.

I've been hooking mine up all day.


I'm looking now for what to hook the mute wires to?

I found the mute wire for my radio, but the 9500i kit has 2 wires to connect??

I don't know where the second wire is supposed to go.

I'll see if I can find it in the video?

Not mentioned in videos.

I need to know where the 2 wires hook up if someone could tell me.

Thanks.

SCGT,

What are the colors of the two wires, remaining?
