Excellent post, VEIL Guy, loaded with great - and factual - information.

As a resident of Ohio, I, too, have had my share of X-band hit experiences, courtesy of our State Highway Patrol Troopers. On another Forum, when the topic of the latest SML tests came up, and when this issue was discussed, I was among those who cried out that while we've seen a decrease in X-band usage over the course of the last decade, it is far, far from dead, and is, in many areas, even enjoying a come-back of sorts.

No doubt, some enforcers have gotten wise to the fact that so many of us have become desensitized to X-band "falsing," that this has become a most valid enforcement tactic.

I'm really glad that someone, particularly an individual of your standings in the community and experience, came forward to set the record straight.
