    Default Whistler 1734 Showing A 'P'

    Hello, I am new here and absolutely love this site.

    I have a question to ask. I have tried a search here and on Google to no avail, probably too many search results. But I have a Whistler 1734, not the best but perfect for around here where cows outnumber people. Two out of the three times I have been hit with Ka (its taken a year), the display just displays (what else would it do?) a 'P'. What does it mean? It doesn't blink or flash or anything, beeps though. I would have though its POP but not on that cheap thing.

    Any ideas?

    That unit does not detect POP.
    It could be for pulse (instant on) but according to Whistlers instructions it does not mention the letter p as part of the alert.
    Here is what is says about the Pulse (instant on):

    Pulse (or instant-on) radar is more difficult to
    detect than
    conventional radar because it remains “off” until
    activated to measure the speed of a targeted
    When a pulse type transmission is detected, your
    Whistler detector sounds an urgent 3-second
    audio warning and flashes the Alert strength indicators
    at their fastest rate. After the 3-second
    pulse alert, the standard alert pattern continues
    for as long as the signal is present.

    Maybe in a newer revision they added the P and never changed the instructions to indicate that.

    A lot of Whistlers do show P for pulse, i'd bet that's it too.

    I can't remember exactly, but the P can actually mean two things, one is pulse and I can't remember the second meaning. It depends on the suituation. Oh, I think it meant programming was on or something.

    Yeah, I just looked at the instructions and there is no "P" on the display. But again, the manual could be out of date as mentioned by boomer

    Not be a smarta$$, but are you sure that you have a 1734?

    Why don't I get a P when I'm instant oned? I get a 9/9 but not a P. I only got a P once on K band when going by a cop. Could it give me a P because the radar gun is sending out a pulsed constant on emission? Somewhat similar concept like pop, just not pop. POP 1990's style I thought it was.
