Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
The higher the number the stronger the signal.
Posted on Jun 13, 2008
There are many Radio Frequency bands copy , highway speed monitors, warning signs , garage door openers and other commercial establishments like shops and convenience stores use.
So if you are in vicinity of a Gas station or in residence neighbourhood you might see X and the numbers 1-9 show up.
This means X band frequency and 1-9 is the signal intensity and 9 being the closest to the source and strongest signal. So sometimes cops in residence and also in highways use X bands .
Otherwise COPS mostly use KA band, and KU bands to detect. The chirp tone is definitely louder and 1-9 means you are getting closer to the radar. Also highway signs use KA or Ku bands to send out alerts so that you can get alerted about construction , lane shift , road hazards etc.
Then there is a LASER. If your car does not have LASER detector built in, Better get one.
So good luck , dont speed and be a safe defensive driver.

Who makes the radar detector? If its some cheap brand that its the signal strength. If its a Valentine 1 than the number is a bogey counter so it tells you how many cops are using Ka band.
