  • LoJack hit distance

    Maybe no-one will want to answer this publicly (if so, please PM me). The other day one of the guys on the road rcvd a LoJack hit. His question to me (dispatcher) realistically how far away could the vehicle be 1 mile, 3....5??? He was recieving a strong signal strength. I asked the bosses, and no-one seems to know. Calls to surrounding agencies, and again no one was sure, but they sent a LoJack unit to assist in triangulation.

    Its just for my future knowledge.

    And yes, I did contact the LoJack LE support center, and unfortunatly at 0300, there wasn't anyone there that could answer the "technical" question.

    Thanks

    Now this one IS OPSEC - call LoJack for an answer, but don't publish it here!

      No big secret here. The signal strength depends alot on the geographic features of where the vehicle's at, as well as distance. Things which block the signal impact the distance it carries.

        Once you get it locked, and have the dispatcher call it in and have the signal multiplied, you have a pretty good radius. I'm guessing up to 3 miles. If you're out in East Bumblefeck, it's probably doubled.
