Maybe I'm mistaken so I'm asking based on an experience from today.

I'm following a leo running 24.167. We drive past a spot that I have set for mute memory. Now here the thing.

I thought mute memory had a radius. I thought once you drove out of that radius, even if it's the same frequency, it would start auto alerting again. Tonight, what happened was that for miles and miles, until I turned off, it stayed on mute memory. Even when I lost the signal for a split second, it was still on mute memory when I picked the signal back up.

The question is, when the R7 mutes from mute memory, should it stay on mute memory until the signal is lost for more than a split second?

It's been noted that the R7 does exactly what you have experienced. It should treat the locked out stationary signal separately but once it mutes for that, it's muted until you lose all signals for a brief period of time.

Might be related to the 60 MHz spread of the lockout.
