I tested my digital carbon monoxide detector and it flashed 888 and then flashed 248 and then back to 888 and reset back to 0. what does that mean.

When you pressed pressed the Test button, it did exactly what it should. It was testing itself and the one set of numbers was for co and the other was for gas, The ' 0' means it tested fine and there is no presence of gas or co in the home's atmosphere at this time. :)

What does K1 mean?

The letters X, K, and Ka designate radar frequency bands used by radar based speed monitors. The letters correspond to designations given by Federal Communication Comission (FCC) frequency bands reserved for speed monitor equipment.
  • X band - 10.525 GHz
  • K band - 24.150 GHz
  • Ka band - 33.4 ... 36 GHz
The number (range is 1 ... 5) is the radar signal strength, where 1 indicates weakest signal (you are still at some distance, or maybe false alarm) while at 5 you should be able to see the white in the eye of the cop holding the radar gun.

The letter V indicates the detection of a "Detector Detector". Devices like the Cobra are illegal in some countries and police has counter-measures available to detect some radar detectors. The maker of the Cobra states, their products go unnoticed but that won't help you if highway patrol sees the thing sticking on your windshield.

The letter S indicates hazard warnings (like train crossings).

Finally, L indicates detection of a LASER based velocity detector.

This is a link that is for the 9600 model is has the same basic features that your system does. This link is a direct PDF link and on page 15 via Acrobat Reader or the actual page number 24 and 25 will tell you what each letter stands for. Most of them are relaying information about what type of radar is being used that your system is picking up.

What do the letters and sounds mean on the Uniden Raidar detector Laser 3 band?

I am not 100% familiar to this model, but generally, all radar bands are the same across detector brands.

Generally, all the bands with the exception of X-band are considered actual radars that law enforcement uses. In other words, if you see K, Ka, or Laser, you should probably slow down.

X-Band, in most states, is a survallence band used by wireless traffic cameras and automatic door openers at retail stores.

Another common indicator is a P, or POP. Essentially, an officer has switched on and off his radar quickly. This is an evasion technique cops use to thwart radar detector use.

Reading the radar detector

These are just the frequency ranges, or "bands" that your detector is detecting the frequencies...

X, K, Ka (Kappa-Alpha) are different bands of frequencies.

Radar codes

VG-2 is a technology that police use to detect radar detectors. Detectors with this feature will detect when VG-2 is in use, and alert you to its presence.


the x,k,ka codes you see flashing are......

X, K, and Ka Superwide are the radar bands that are used by police radar guns. X band was the first band used for by radar guns, but is now the least used. All radar detectors that we carry detect all 3 of these bands.

quoted by a professional at the Cobra industries for radar detectors, cb radios and electronics galore.
