    Are Radar frequencies the same in Canada as the US? Would you recommend different settings here. I have an STi Magnum but it doesn’t seem to detect Raptor Radar……K or Ka. RCMP use it almost exclusively here (I assume the US as well). I do not have the above settings. Only difference is I had KaSW on and RDR on.

    1. They’re the same, yeah. The Magnum can detect the Raptor RP-1, both K and Ka. It has a normal Ka antenna on 35.5 and a lower output power level on K band.

    So the specific band settings you suggest should help with better detection?
