Abstract: We obtain explicit Plancherel formulas for the parabolic subgroups $ P$ of $ p$-adic unitary groups which fix one dimensional isotropic subspaces. By means of certain limits of difference operators (called strong derivatives), we construct a Dixmier-Pukanszky operator which compensates for the nonunimodularity of the group $ P$.

Then, we compute the Plancherel formula of $ N \cdot A$, where $ N$ is the nilradical of $ P$ and $ A = {Q'_p}$, the multiplicative group of nonzero $ p$-adic numbers, by formulating a $ p$-adic change of variable formula and using the strong derivative.
