What do the different bands on radar detectors mean?

When the detector detects these bands, it emanates a “beep” that alerts the user of radar presence. When a radar detector detects a police officer’s radar gun, it alerts you with messages about X band, K band, or Ka bands. These are the bands that the police officer’s radar guns operate on.

What does MRCD stand for?

Is Ka-band better than KU band?

At the Ka-band frequencies, noise is higher than at Ku-band. So, in this example, with equal coverage on the ground and equal size receive antennas, the quality of the signal will be better at Ku-band. Proponents of Ka-band capacity point out that the Ka-band beams usually have higher EIRP values than Ku-band.

What is the difference between K and Ka-band?

While X and K band police radar guns operate on just one or two frequencies, KA band guns operate on as many as five. With a narrower beam pattern and lower power output than X and K band, Ka band is the most difficult type of radar to detect at long distance.

What does C mean on radar detector?

2) Center mass, as in the center of your grill or front license plate area that officers may target with their lidar guns. C/O – Constant On. There is where a police officer leaves their radar gun on the whole time while they are parked or driving around. This is easy to detect from a distance.

Do police know if you have a radar detector?

Can police find out if you have a radar detector? Yes, they can! Absolutely they can, and it’s easy. All they need is a radar detector detector.

What does Md mean on radar?

It is an alert for MRCD. Escort alerts to it like it would for laser.

What states use Gatso radar?

So I have discovered that several states have moved off the old X, K, and Ka bands and are now using new standards. The new standards are MRCD (Arizona, Illinois, New York, Texas, Virginia, and Washington D.C.), MRCT (parts of Europe) and Gatso (in Iowa (and Europe)).
