Default Two MARVELOUS Saves Today

Today was a banner day for the Pro-78SE. Two saves against 35.5, with one being from QUITE a distance.

The first save was this morning, coming back from the gym. I turned onto the six-lane road that I take home (this is about 5:50 a.m.), and I'm running late. So i gun it and start accelerating. Get to about 10 over when the RD alerts on Ka 35.5 at about 3 bars. Steady signal, so I slowed to 5-over just before the crest of a long, steep hill. Turns out there was a state trooper sitting at the intersection at the bottom of the hill, shooting Ka 35.5. All total, about a .7 mile hit, but if he'd been moving before I saw him, it would have been longer. Pretty much as soon as I turned on to the road.

Here's the map. The insets show my view of the crest of the hill (bottom, looking south) and the trooper's view of the hill (top, looking north).



Then this afternoon, while driving home, I got a 2-3 bar Ka 35.5 again, just as I was getting ready to leave a GLI in my dust. So I slowed and crept along at the PSL +5. Kept getting intermittent 35.5 hits, ramping up the whole time. I passed a trooper, but the signal was gone until JUST as we passed, and then it appeared at like 6 bars. A few seconds later, here comes a local deputy, and the signal shot up to full strength as he passed. That was about 1.7 miles from first alert. Assuming he was headed toward me at about the speed limit (there are no lights to catch him), it was a 3.4 mile 35.5 save! Nice!



So a good day for the Whistler. Very good.

Yep, very good. I really like this thing against Ka. Very capable. I don't get to test it against K-band much any more, since the local Sheriff transitioned from K to Ka (mostly 34.7, but one 35.5) recently.
