Can police or anyone else use Lojack to track your car without it being stolen or reported stolen?
Lojack emitts an RF chirp every 10 seconds as normal operation. When reported stolen, the chirp is every second.
In order to activate a LoJack system, the stolen vehicle's VIN has to be entered by police into the NCIC computer system. It can't be tracked otherwise.
I understand that, but let's take a hypothetical question. Lojack transmits at a radio frequency 173.075 MHz all the time.
When the vehicle has not been reported stolen, it transmits a chirp once every 10 seconds. When reported stolen, the chirp is every second. So what's to stop someone with a receiver set to this RF of 173.075 MHz from tracking your car without it being stolen?

I was surprised when I heard from Scott Life that he had some hubs stolen and he did not think that Hubpages did enough to resolve this. This got me wondering if other people here had a similar problem. Thanks for any input for I would hater to find out about this the wrong way!
