How are you mounting your Valentine 1 if you don't mind me asking? I would love to have one but the weather-proofing was always going to be an issue. Also FWIW a lot of newer luxury rigs and cars with collision avoidance/lane departure systems are using X-band as well. In my experience the new Audi's seem to be the worst emitters in that respect. Gives my old Cobra Detector fits occasionally, hence my quest for a new one. Costco has had Escort 9500IX on sale for a while now and I almost bought up, until I read they dont filter this particular problem very well.Lecture or a ticket, I ain't taking both. IME you'll have the best chances for even treatment from the highway patrol in California, Colorado, Nevada and Montana compared to city cops with county cops bringing up the rear. But, since the invention of the Valentine One (revenuer) detector, I haven't had much interaction with them.
I came across the Radar Box but it just seems like weak sauce.
