Prices can go way over $400 for Valentine units.

Anyway, what I'd like to add is there are two kinds of Ka (since we are 
probably looking at best band for the buck here...).

One is the original Ka, designed for the Photo Radar. THe new one is the 
Ka Wide, which uses wider bandwidth than the Ka. A lot of bargain 
detectors may advertise Ka-capable, but that not include the new Ka Wide 
-- which has wider frequency for trolling.
