WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT V1’s EURO MODE

Euro Mode

Euro Mode narrows and intensifies V1’s radar coverage to the frequencies used in Europe and some other countries for photo radar. It is not intended for operation in the U.S.

Improved Euro Mode starts with V1 serial numbers ending in 1179; it widens K-band coverage to 23.900-24.250GHz from the previous 24.050-24.250GHz. This change is to assure coverage of the new Multaradar being used abroad.

Both of these modes are installed at the factory but must be activated by the user when needed. For activation instructions, see How to program V1.


Euro Mode and Ku Band (not intended for operation in the U.S.) are separate features and require separate activation.

Once Euro Mode has been activated, the user may add Ku and X band as needed for a specific country.

The coverage of K and Ka differs slightly for different versions of V1.

K Band frequencies

Units with software versions* 3.894 and higher cover the following K-band frequencies:

23.90 – 24.25 GHz

Units with software versions* between 3.821 and 3.893 cover the following frequencies in K band:

24.05 – 24.25 GHz

Ka Band frequencies

Units with software versions* 3.890 and higher cover the following Ka-band frequencies:

33.70 – 33.90 GHz
33.90 – 34.11 GHz
34.18 – 34.48 GHz
34.56 – 34.65 GHz
35.45 – 35.55 GHz

Units with software versions* between 3.864 and 3.889 cover the following Ka-band frequencies:

33.70 – 33.90 GHz
33.90 – 34.10 GHz
34.16 – 34.44 GHz
34.56 – 34.64 GHz

Units with software versions* between 3.821 and 3.863 cover the following slices of Ka band:

33.70 – 33.90 GHz
33.96 – 34.04 GHz
34.16 – 34.44 GHz
34.56 – 34.64 GHz

To add X-band and Ku-band coverage to Euro Mode, go to Tech Report 3 for instructions.

When Euro Mode has been activated, upon power up you will see the sequence "E," "u," "r" appear in the Bogey Counter. When the power-up sequence is complete, the Bogey Counter will show either "U" or "u." Pressing the Control Knob will toggle between them.

Select "U" to enable both K and Ka (Photo) bands. Select "u" to enable only Ka band.
