I've had AutoLearn turned off on my 9500ci since the day I installed it. For the past few days I was in Rome, GA since my dad was in the hospital for some tests. It occurred to me that Shorter Avenue would be a perfect test location for seeing what size lockout radius the 9500ci uses when manually locking out false alerts because Shorter Ave is loaded with tons of door openers for a straight distance of 3 miles. Shorter has everything -- door openers located close to the road as well as some which are located several hundred feet back from the road, X band door openers, K band door openers, combinations of X and K band door openers at the same location, plus either single or multiple door openers at the same location.
So I decided to individually lock all of them out as I drove up and down Shorter Avenue. I also pulled into a couple of shopping centers which were set back from the road by a considerable distance and locked them out too. I had to return home yesterday evening so I didn't get to complete all of my tests, but I will when I go back to Rome on Sunday or Monday. In any event, it seems that when manually locking out door openers that the lockout radius is less than 1000 feet unless the door opener is right next to the road. In this latter case it seems that the lockout radius may be as large as 2000 feet or so.
When I go back to Rome I will use my X and K transmitters along with my STi in spec mode to see the frequencies, to see how large the lockout radii are, and to see what percentage of locked out locations just happened to have a door opener which is on the same frequency as either my X or K transmitter.
I also want to do some high speed manual lockouts of some shopping centers located north of Rome on Hwy 27 to see if the lockout radius is set to a larger size simply because I am traveling at highway speeds.
Anyway, can anyone think of additional tests which I should perform when I go back to Rome?
P.S.: The Rome police department now has brand new Chargers, and they are using both 34.7 and 35.5 Ka radar! I guess revenues from their red light cameras plus DUIs must be good.
