This is a Citizens Band (CB) channel and the indicator is informing you on what channel your radio is set to. Most often used when traveling in pair/group to make sure all can listen/chime in for directions, law enforcement/accident up ahead.

I just need to know the meaning of each symbol for my cobra xrs 9685


X band is usually some electrical signal not to worry.
K band is usually a radar sign or machine that tells you your speed. (Small town Sheriffs use this band also because they cant afford newer technology)
Ka
means K band America- If you see this symbol slow down and look around.
Ku means K band Europe- If you see this symbol slow down and look around

I wanted to know what the symbols meant when they go off.


Ok X, K, and Ka are the type of radar bands the officers radar gun admits. The V is shown when an officer's gun can detect certain radar detectors. The S is a safety alert when emergency vehicles are near. BTW here is a link to a PDF manual that should be similar to your model. http://www.cobraelec.com/downloads/manuals/ESD9110_manual.pdf

What do the the symbols Ka, K, X, L, and SWS mean on a radar detector


These symbols refer to the frequency of the radar gun's signals that are used to detect your speed. L is for laser, x, k and Ka band have designated frequencies that they use for radar traffic control. They range from around 10GHz. to 30 GHz. if my memory serves me.
A typical microwave oven operates at 2.5 GHhz or so.

Signals


When "X" lights up, this means that your RD is either detecting X band police radar or that it is detecting an X band microwave automatic door opener.

When "K" lights up, this means the same as above except that the radar signal is a K band radar signal.

When "Ka" lights up, then this means that your RD is detecting police Ka band radar since no automatic door openers operate on Ka band.

When "VG-2" lights up, this is supposed to mean that your RD is detecting a VG-2 radar detector detector (RDD). Police use RDDs such as the VG2 and the Spectre to indicate that a motorist is using a radar detector.
