    So called 'Pop' or 'pop mode' refers to the ability of a radar gun to send out 67MS/16MS 'bursts' of radar. Essentially it was originally designed (I believe by MPH) to be such a short burst that (they claimed) the RD's of the time could not detect it. (It is not made however to give a citation upon its use solely...MPH states in their manuals [I believe] that the unit should be switched out of 'pop mode' to constant-on to complete a vehicle tracking history.)

    It is not very widely deployed in the US I do believe Neveda has the most current POP capable guns in use. (Somewheres between 75-100 I have heard). It is honestly a mear fraction (barely a 'blip' on the radar) if you will of the total amount of radar guns in use today in the US. It is expensive and many LEO's find smart use of instant-on to be just as effective as 'pop'(for all intent and purposes).

    Edit: I do not know if the 1733 detects pop (Boomerman or someone with more knowledge about whistler would probably have the awnser).

    I don't really think you would. POP guns are quite expensive, so there not really widespread.
