Default Auto "No K" seems broken

On my 9500iX, I can be out in the middle of nowhere and it goes from absolutely nothing to maximum with nothing in sight but cows and trees. No cars, cell towers, etc.

Shouldn't Auto NoK stop these nuisance alerts?

Thanks,
Sid

Depends on the source, Sid. Sources can include automatic door openers and property-intrusion detectors, too. If you don't want to be alerted to K-band warnings, you can disable the K-band detection on the detector. But that would leave you unaware of real threats.

Some farm & other large equipment may use K band. See link below:

Thanks. This is happening without cars, tractors, etc. within eyesight in relatively open rural areas. No auto-gates or other visible sources of potential RF energy.

I get the newer cars and SUVs setting off alerts but, this happens without traffic anywhere close. I get alerts from newer cars but, generally only in town and very few on the road. And I should note, no tractors either. If I was near a dairy or road crew mowing, I could see some false alerts.

Also, there are no ramp-ups. It goes from nothing to maximum with no intermediate transitions in wide open spaces with nothing in sight, no tractors, etc.

The towns around me run a lot of 'out of towner' road tax speed traps so, I want to make sure my detector is functioning correctly. AutoNoX or AutoNoK seem to have no effect as well so, I'm questioning the proper functioning of my detector. Perhaps I just need a new one with more modern technology.

No ramp up is common for false K signals in Auto Mode.
If you want to experiment you could switch to Highway with TSR Off and approach a known false K area to see if it will ramp and better lead you to its source.
