    What's the point of pulse radar? Just so that it will be like instant on for really junky detectors?

    So the officer does not leave it on constant on and does not have to keep pressing the button like instant on. A happy in between if you will

    But it seems like in the off cycle it's still easy to pick up so why bother.

    Solon, OH used to use pulse mode and I never understood why either. It is a waste of time

    I always thought that "Pulse" was just another name for instant-on???

    I have never heard of police radar that automatically cycles from low to high or from off to on etc. If there IS radar that operates this way, then I don't know what they're trying to accomplish. It doesn't offer any performance advantages or defeat detector users...

    I guess there is a possibility...On Roy's site it says pulse radar is used to measure distance. Is this some kind of mode in some radar gun model for measuring distances for accident investigation etc? I know some laser guns have this option...

    I believe "pulse mode"radar is a bit of a misnomer. I don't know of any radar that cycles from low to high. Radar measurement of distance I believe works in another way then pulsing from low to high power. I believe in the original instance terrain effects may have been what was making the radar signal go from low to high..
