Default Redline Ex Vs 33.8

Hi guys
I was wondering what is the best way to run the Redline Ex for best detection range against 33.8 Ka?? At the moment I'm staying in a country with only 33.8 threat + lesar nothing else.
I've learned that they don't use POP around here.
Thanx

If you are certain thats all that is used you could turn that seg on but make sure you have RDR off , that will give you better response.

For Laser you can't depend on the Redline EX only for protection.

To get the best Ka performance out of RedLine EX, you should disable as many bands or band narrows as you can:
- POP off (default)
- Ka band off
- KaN1 off
- KaN2 on
- KaN3 off
- KaN4 off
- KaN5 on
- KaN6 off
- KaN7 off
- KaN8 on
- KaN9 off
- KaN10 off

Default Redline Ex vs 33.8 facing forward

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shsq...ature=youtu.be

In this clip the Ex detects constant on 33.8 facing away from the car.

the range is 1.3 miles & it's not a straight road.

settings:

pop on
rdr off
gps on
k off
x off
ka 123 on, 1 & 3 just to be on the safe side.

with pop off it should detect a little beter.

If all you are running is scanning for 33.8, then I don't see any reason to have GPS filter on either, but I don't suppose it matters either way.

Larry, what about out of tune guns, drift, and state-specific settings? As you mentioned recently in another thread about Ohio use of X band, maybe let others know that sometimes, depending on certain states, you should consider turning on other KaN bands?
