1. Display (Fig 1)
Can be fitted very discreetly in any car.
2. Power/Volume Button (P/V) (2)
Press briefly to switch your Bel 975 on or off. The self test will take place automatically and the standard settings will be 34 Ghz. (on the display,'led 34'lights up) By holding P/V pressed in you can adjust the volume with led's (12).
3. 34 GHz. Ka Band (3)
Lights up green when the Bel 975 is active.When detection occurs the 34 GHz led will flash. Initially the 34 GHz frequency is the standard setting. This setting will detect commonly used speed traps, which are used in Europe.
4. 24 GHz Switch. K Band (4)
This switch activates the 24GHz frequency. The green led (5) will light up when this frequency has been activated. On detection the 24 GHz led (5) will flash. This frequency is the main frequency used by speed enforcement Police Officers in the UK, The frequency is common to Gatso and hand held Radar guns. This frequency is also used by European Speed Enforcement equipment.
5. 13GHz Switch. KuBand (6)
This switch activates the 13 GHz frequency. The green led (7) will light up when this frequency has been activated. When detection occurs, the 13 GHz led (7) will flash. This is an old frequency used by the "Mini Gatso" dating back to 1978. However there are still some units in use by some Police Authorities. The good news is - they are not being replaced when they are no longer serviceable.
6. High Switch (HI)
This is used to increase the reception sensitivity of the 13 GHz frequency. The HI lead will light up to confirm operation. The Bel 975 only gives an audible alarm on detection of 13 GHz signals if the signal strength is greater than two LED's (12).This standard setting avoids false alarms. You can increase sensitivity for the 13GHz frequency using the HI-switch.
7. External Port
The external port is for connection of a single laser module or a twin laser adapter interface.
8.Laser LED (L)
The red LED (11) lights up when it receives a trigger from laser modules via the external port.
9. Signal Strength (12)
These red LED's light up one by one to indicate the strength (distance) of the radar source. In the case of laser dertection only the first and last LED's light up (alternately).
10. Audio Alarm Speaker (13)
Gives different audible warning signals for the various frequencies (13, 24 or 34 GHz) or laser check. You will soon learn to recognise these frequencies by glancing to check which LED's are illuminated. You can adjust the volume of the audible signals with button P/V. The first time you 'hold the button in' the signal will get louder. For a softer signal, release the button P/V briefly and then press and hold it in again. The signal strength corresponds with the four LED's (12).
This contains the electronics with which the radar signals are received. For fitting instructions, refer to page 8 staps 1 and 2: Fitting the antenna.

See installation instructions.
When P/V button is pressed the Bel 975 immediately performs a self-test. This test causes the 34-GHz LED and the signal-strength LED's (12) to light up. The operation of all warning signals (13) for 13, 24 or 34 GHz and laser is checked. The Bel 975's power circuit is also checked. For your convenience the 975 automatically remembers your settings when it is switched off. The Bel 975 is equiped with an ESP chipp. This prevents frequent false alarms and/or the unit being affected by your GSM phone.
