Default Radar (traffic) Bands In Use In Tampa Bay Area

I am working on setting up a new Uniden R3 radar detector. I am wondering if anyone has a handle on what microwave bands are being used and which bands are not in use in Pinellas & Hillsborough. I have some granular control over each band, including sensitivity and bandwidth. i would like to use those features to my advantage if possible.

I know there are a couple websites that cover this topic, but don't go into specific details county by county. Any help is welcomed.

TY,
Vince

K, Ka and Laser are pretty much in use statewide.

X is no longer permitted for speed measurement in Florida, so turn it off.

Default TY!

Thanks, that is what I was thinking, but like to reaffirm by hearing it from someone else. TY.
