  4. If the user exceeds 5000 lockouts, the oldest lockout will be deleted and will be replaced with the newest lockout.

Auto Lockouts
If the same signal (X Band: +-10Mhz, K Band: +-10Mhz) is detected at the same location three times( 1st + 2nd + 3rd), DS1 will automatically lock the signal out as a false alert. Once a signal is saved in Auto mute memory (the 1st counting) , DS1 will not save the same signal for 8 hours even though it is detected again, which means it takes at least 16 hours( 1st + 2nd + 3rd) to automatically lock a signal out. The interval of 8 hours is to avoid saving too many signals in Auto mute memory.
The DS1 can store 16,500 Auto Lockout points.
