Description of Features
Power-on Test Sequence
Each time your unit is turned on, alerts for Laser, X, K,
Ka and Safety Warning System are presented briefly.
This is immediately followed by the status of the four
Selectable Features:
1. Auto Mute – a clicking tone confirms if feature is
engaged.
2. Safety Warning System – illumination of the green
“S” LED confirms if feature is engaged.
3. X/K/Ka Bands – illumination of the appropriate LED
confirms if band is activated. Full illumination of four
signal strength LEDs, coupled with the illumination of
the Ka LED confirms Super Wideband Ka mode.
5
5/14/07 9:38:37 AM
4.
Ka Narrow Bands – With Super Wideband Ka turned
OFF, any Ka narrow frequency which is engaged is
confirmed by rapid flashing of appropriate signal
strength LED (see page 10).
Pressing PWR anytime during the power up test sequence will
suspend the normal power up test sequence; your unit will be
ready for operation.
Tutorial Mode
The tutorial mode allows you to become more
familiar with all audible and visual alerts. To engage
this mode, press the AUD and the CTY buttons
simultaneously while the unit is ON. The audio/visual
alerts will be presented slowly in order of Laser, K, X,
Ka and SWS. The tutorial mode will cycle the
audio/visual alerts continuously. Press the PWR button
to exit. Two “beeps” confirm exiting from the tutorial
mode. Your unit is now ON and ready for operation.
Set and Forget Memory
Any time 975e Remote is turned OFF all feature
settings you have selected are retained in the unit’s
memory. Set and Forget Memory eliminates the need
to reset your preferred feature settings each time
your unit is turned OFF and then back ON.
Low Voltage Warning
975e Remote continually checks voltage to ensure
proper performance. The unit’s operating range is
10.0 to 16.0 volts. If voltage falls below 10.0, the
highway (H) or city (C) indicator will flash, coupled
with a series of steady audible “beeps.”
Loss of Antenna Connection
In the event the control panel and Radar antenna are
not properly connected, the X/K/Ka band indicators
will flash, coupled with steady audible “beeps.”
6
23499_BEL_975eOM.indd 7-8
Audio/Visual Alert for Instant-On/Pulsed Radar
This type of signal appears suddenly when a Radar
unit is “triggered.” The instant-on or pulsed alert
consists of an intense, three-second, X, K or Super
Wideband Ka audio “burst,” coupled with the flashing
of the four-LED display.
DRK (Bright/Dim/Dark) Button
The DRK button allows selection of a dim or dark
setting for all LEDS. To engage dim mode, press the
DRK button once. A single “beep” confirms your
selection. To completely cancel the illumination of all
LEDS, press DRK a second time. You’ll notice the city/
highway LED remains dim to confirm your unit is
receiving power. To return to a full bright setting,
press the DRK button a third time; two “beeps”
confirm this selection. Use of the DIM button does
not affect audio alerts.
Important—if you press the DRK button and do not receive
audible confirmation, the audio level has been set too low.
AUD (Audio Mute/Volume Control) Button
Manual Muting of Audio Alerts (Radar and SWS)
Whether Auto-Mute is selected ON or OFF in
Selectable Features, the audio alerts can be
completely muted by pressing the AUD button during
an alert. No audible alert will be heard for
approximately 12 seconds. If the signal is still present
after 12 seconds, the unit will remain in manual mute
mode.
Volume Control
Press and hold AUD button to engage the volume
control. Release the AUD button when you have
reached your desired audio setting. To reverse
direction of the volume, release and press AUD a
second time.
Note—because Laser alerts are not lengthy or sustained,
7 muting is not required (see page 17).
5/14/07 9:38:38 AM
CTY (City/Highway) Button
The City X mode has been designed to effectively
reduce unwanted audio alerts caused by intrusion
alarms, door openers, and other devices which share
X band with police Radar—without reducing
sensitivity. Signals from non-police Radar sources are
frequently encountered in urban and suburban areas,
making use of this mode ideal in these areas.
Pressing the CTY button once engages the City X
mode which is confirmed by a single “beep” and the
illumination of the yellow city LED labeled H/C. Once
engaged, weak X band signals encountered will
produce no audible alert until the signal strength
reaches a preset level. However visual alerts are
processed the instant an X band signal is detected,
keeping you quietly informed. Since most “false” X
band signals are weak, the use of the city mode allows
you to drive out of their range before they reach the
preset level and trigger a full audio alert. In contrast,
signals from X band traffic Radar are generally
stronger and will exceed the preset level, causing a
full X band audio alert.
Activating the City X mode will not change Super
Wideband Ka, K or instant-on X band Radar alert
patterns.
Note—the city mode has no effect on the reception of Laser
or SWS.
City X/K/Ka
City X/K/Ka provides an alternate approach for
improving X, K and Ka band selectivity and is ideal
for use in areas with a high level of microwave
transmissions which can cause falsing on all three
bands. To engage City X/K/Ka mode, press the City
button twice. City X/K/Ka is confirmed by the
alternate flashing of the green/amber H/C LED for
one second. After the one second, the LED returns to
solid amber illumination.
8
23499_BEL_975eOM.indd 9-10
Once engaged, weak X, K or Super Wideband Ka
signals encountered will produce no audible alerts
until the signal strength reaches a preset level. Visual
alerts are processed the instant an X, K or Super
Wideband Ka signal is detected, keeping you quietly
informed.
Pressing CTY a third time returns you to highway
mode; two beeps and the illumination of the green
H/C LED confirms highway mode.
Reset to Factory Settings
You can reset your unit to factory settings for volume,
DRK, AUDIO, CITY and Selectable Features. With the
unit OFF press and hold the AUD and CTY buttons,
then press the PWR button. Two “beeps” will confirm
factory settings are reset. Your unit is now ON and
ready for operation.
Selectable Features

OFF, depending upon your preference.
Auto-Mute On/Off
When activated, unit will provide several X, K, Super
Wideband Ka audio alerts followed by a “clicking”
tone to keep you quietly informed for as long as the
signal is present. The clicking becomes more rapid as
the strength of the Radar signal increases. Auto-Mute
enables you to conveniently monitor extended
encounters without having to manually mute or adjust
the volume setting.
Note—because of their urgency, Laser alerts are not
affected.

Understanding Radar, Laser and SWS
Three Radar Frequencies
Three microwave frequencies have been allocated by
the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and
are used for traffic Radar. They are:
X band: 10.45–10.60 GHz
K band: 24.050–24.250 GHz
Super Wideband Ka: 33.4–36.0 GHz
Both X and K bands are well known to motorists who
have traveled with Radar detectors. Introduced first
was X band Radar which became common during the
1960s. In the mid 1970s, the lower powered, more
difficult to detect K band Radar was introduced. In
1987, FCC approval was given for use of Radar
equipment using a third frequency, Ka. In response to
this, BELTRONICS introduced the first Radar
detectors capable of detecting X, K and Ka band
signals. In late 1990, FCC approval was given to
Wideband Ka: 34.2 GHz to 35.2 GHz. Once again,
BEL responded with Wideband Ka detection. Today,
your 975e can detect Super Wideband Ka. To turn
this on, see selectable options section.

23499_BEL_975eOM.indd 13-14
Safety Warning System (SWS) – What is it?
The Radio Association Defending Airwave Rights, Inc.
(R.A.D.A.R) conceived and developed the Safety
Warning System. The concept behind this system is to
warn motorists of potential road hazards by
employing Safety Warning System transmitting
devices in areas such as construction zones, accident
sites and detours. Because these SWS transmitters
operate within the 24 GHz portion of the K band
frequency, their signals are detected by your unit.
Interpretation of Alerts
Radar Alerts
The alerts provided by your unit are affected both by
the type of transmission (continuous wave or instanton) and the position of the Radar source. Generally,
when you drive closer to a Radar source the intensity
of the received signals increases, resulting in a greater
number of LEDs illuminating in the four-LED display
(l or r) and a corresponding increase in the audio
alert rate. Described on the following pages are five
common types of Radar encounters and the alerts you
will typically receive.
1.
Stationary or moving Radar, straight ahead aimed in your
direction.
13
5/14/07 9:38:39 AM
Since Radar signals travel in a straight line, this Radar
encounter potentially offers maximum warning range.
Once this signal is received, the initial warning
consists of the X, K, or Super Wideband Ka audio
and visual alerts and the simultaneous illumination of
one or more of the LEDs in the four-LED display. The
actual number displayed will depend upon the
strength of the signal received. As the strength of the
Radar signal increases, the audio alerts become more
rapid and more LEDs in the display will illuminate.
Assuming the Radar signal remains uninterrupted, the
audio and visual alerts will clearly indicate a “weak”
signal becoming stronger as you drive closer to the
Radar source. Remember, when the police Radar
source is moving toward you, the Radar signal
strength will increase much more rapidly than if you
are approaching a stationary source.
2.
3.
Radar signals travel in a straight line and do not pass
through earth. Consequently, police Radar aimed at
the crest of a steep hill cannot be received until you
are at or near the top. Warning time may be minimal
(as in situation #2) since a strong signal is not
present until you are near the crest of the hill. At
this point, you may be nearly in the police officer’s
line of sight. When cresting a hill, a weak initial alert
followed by very quickly by a full alert is typical. This
alert pattern requires prompt attention.
Stationary Radar aimed around a corner.
4.
Under this circumstance, reaction time is considerably
reduced. Since the Radar signals are transmitted
across your line of travel, there is generally no signal
available to receive until you are relatively close to the
source. Once an alert is received, expect the strength
of the signal to increase very quickly. Advanced
warning in this situation may be reduced.
14
23499_BEL_975eOM.indd 15-16
Stationary Radar concealed by the crest of a hill
aimed in your direction.
15
Moving Radar behind you, traveling in the same direction.
Police Radar signal transmitted from behind your
vehicle can be received when reflected by objects in
front of you such as large signs, bridges and trucks. As
you drive, the size and configuration of these objects
are constantly changing, causing the strength of any
reflected Radar signal received to vary. A strong,
uninterrupted alert indicates the patrol car is close
behind.
5/14/07 9:38:39 AM
5.
If a vehicle is a long distance from the source of
Laser pulses, fewer pulses will generally be received.
The closer the vehicle is to the source of Laser pulses,
the greater the likelihood of receiving a steady stream
of Laser pulses. The reason for this is the aiming
stability of the Laser gun and the fact that it is
impossible to hold the gun absolutely still. Any
movement of the gun results in motion of the beam at
the target. The further the target, the greater the
displacement of the beam and the shorter the dwell
time of the beam at the target point. Therefore, there
is the possibility of receiving only a few Laser pulses.
Due to these characteristics, all Laser alerts
received from your unit should be taken seriously.
Instant-on/Pulsed Radar
If you are the target vehicle, an alert caused by
instant-on or pulsed Radar will be strong and
immediate. When encountered, your unit responds
with a three-second audio/visual warning.
Typical False Alert (Radar)
Ideally, a Radar detector should only alert in the
presence of police Radar. However, because other
devices share X and K bands with police Radar, false
alerts sometimes occur. Generally, a false signal
produces only a short audio and visual alert. Since
they are most often weak, it is possible to drive out of
the signal’s range very quickly and receive only a brief
alert. Although many times the probable source of the
false signal can be identified (supermarket, bank,
commercial building etc.), caution is advised until the
source can be confirmed. The X band alert pattern
caused by a non-police source can look like the initial
alert produced by actual police Radar. For this reason,
appropriate action is required any time an alert is
received.
Safety Warning System (SWS) Alerts
With the Safety Warning System feature ON and an
SWS transmitter in use, your detector will provide a
unique, three-second, two-tone “beep” followed by
clicking, coupled with the flashing of the (S) LED and
the appropriate LED in the four-LED display. To select
SWS ON or OFF, see Selectable Features, page 9.
LED #1 confirms Highway Construction/Maintenance ahead
Laser Alerts
When Laser is detected, the four-LED display will
illuminate in a distinct pattern. This illumination
pattern occurs rapidly and is coupled with the distinct
Laser audio alert.
LED # 2 confirms Highway Hazard Zone Advisory which
could indicate an accident ahead
LED # 3 confirms Weather Related Hazards such as fog
ahead
LED # 4 confirms Emergency/Slow Moving Vehicles in transit
When only the SWS audio warning is provided, the
category referenced is Travel/Convenience.
Information or the category is unknown.

Troubleshooting
Conditions that Affect Radar Alerts
If you feel your unit is not alerting properly, keep in
mind that there are many conditions that influence
the intensity or duration of an alert:
Solutions for Common Problems
If your unit is not operating properly, please refer to
the outline below.
1.
The police are using instant-on/pulsed Radar, in which
case no signal is transmitted until visual contact has
been made with your vehicle. For detection of this
signal, you must rely on reflected signals from Radar
directed at traffic traveling ahead of you.
2.
The police Radar unit is positioned perpendicular to
the road, around a curve, or just over the crest of a
hill, thus, significantly reducing the reception range.
3.
The highway traffic between your vehicle and the
police Radar source is heavy, blocking or reflecting
transmitted signals. The presence of several large
trucks between you and the police Radar unit could
also significantly reduce reception.
4.
Rain or humid weather conditions can absorb
transmitted signals before they reach your vehicle,
again reducing detection range.
5.
The police Radar unit is not properly tuned and is
transmitting outside allocated X, K or Super
Wideband Ka frequency ranges.
