Default Betty Saves My Arse - Killer K-Band Save

Coming home from my daughter's art show tonight, turning from an east-west highway onto the northbound lane of a north-south county road. THis is one LONG, STRAIGHT road, but has tons of hills. As soon as I got on the road, I got a K-band hit of 1-2 bars. It stayed steady, ramping up to 4 bars, then it disappeared.

I told my stepson, "he must have turned off the road or something," but I decided to be careful anyway. REALLY wanted to pass the slow, 5-under Honda Pilot in front of me, but didn't want to risk it.

Crested a hill right before the turn onto my road and BAM! 7 bars of K, ramping immediately to full strength.

And there he was, with his nice, reflective markings, sitting in a spot I've never seen them before, shooting us with K-band. I lost the signal and even watched him lower the gun from the window. Had I not gotten that early hit, I would have blown by the Pilot, and probably been doing 15 over when I got to Mr. Deputy.

WHEW!!

Total range: 3.53 miles, over 4 hills (deputy dog was about halfway up a hill...), with a slight off-axis first-detect.

I am VERY relieved to get this detect. This is K-band country out here, with the local sheriff running about half K and half Ka (34.7) . I had read somewhere that the 78SE was a little weak on K-band, but at least the unit I have is obviously not.

I rubbed Betty's tummy and told her "Good job." My stepson thought I was nuts, but he was SO psyched about the long save.

Ha, and when I went back through there about 30 minutes later, the deputy had someone pulled over. Glad that wasn't me!

Yeah, and she saved me again today on the same road, just further south. This one was a WEIRD encounter that I've sent to Mike B for his evaluation of it. I have my suspicions about what I encountered, but at less than one tenth of a mile, I had K-band at 3-4 bars.

Hmmmmmmm...

I would think at that close of a range it would have been a stronger signal rather than 3-4 bars.
