See, the problem with having a false alarm for me is that I leave near areas where the cops will hide directly next to grocery stores, so when you think it's a false alert, bang, they've got you right there. Granted, both are using different frequencies, it just helps to know all that is out there. At least to me. Sometimes I'll get a Ka near a grocery store or houses, and there are no cops... So that's what I most worry about.

Edit: I have a V1, btw.
