I don't know where else to put this but I'm sure there are some members here who can answer my question.

I recently acquired a Valentine One. Yes, people shouldn't speed and no, I'm not a racer. I just wanted to have one.

Now I want to tweak it. My question is am I correct in concluding that the X and K bands are not used at all any more by the police in New Zealand? My impression is that only Ka is used so I should be able to turn the others off to prevent false alerts. Yes or no?

Another question is whether Euro mode is any use to me here. Will it cut out frequencies that are used?

Thanks for any tips.

Only the Ka band is used by police in NZ.

Have fun!  You'll be surprised how many unmarked cars are out there.

Thanks for the replies guys. Turns out the unit is already correctly programmed for NZ but I'm glad to have my assumptions confirmed.
