Re: Radar detector types?

     My escort works great.  I used to have a cobra that only detected 2 of 
     the 3 radar bands.  Of course I get a ticket and never saw it coming.  
     Then I bought the escort that detects 3 radar bands and laser and have 
     been clean ever since.  The only complaint I have is that it is not 
     loud enough.  Sometimes my stereo drowns it out.  I am thinking of 
     connecting a remote amplified speaker.  It already has a plug for it 
     and I am going to use one of the OEM rear speaker/amps that I replaced 
     a few weeks ago.  I just need to find a good place to locate it.

Guys, and gals,
	Since we are discussing detectors, I have a question to ask.  
What detectors do you use, and are you SURE that they are working as 
	I have had an old Bel 836 (rated #1 fro less than $100.00 a few 
years ago) and it has worked great.  It falses very little, and has 
fantastic range.  The other weekend when I went to Chicago with my 
neighbour to pick up his new 5KCSTQ, we drove back with my old Bel in my 
car, and my new Uniden LRD6199SW in his car.  It was Mar 30, a beautiful 
Sat morning, and the bears were out in force.  At least two times, we 
passed radar traps that my Bel detected miles ahead.  In all cases, the 
Uniden was silent!  I'm sending that sucker back!
Thanks for your input.
