I have an escort x50. I live in North Carolina and I have recently noticed the state troopers running the k band instead of the usual ka band when I see them parked ahead of me running a trap. They usually just tap it so the k band shows on the detector a few seconds.
It seems some of the smaller town deputies also run a radar that only puts out the k band.
Is the k band enough for them to write a citation or do they then need to hit the ka band radar before they can legally write a ticket?
