Microsoft Encarta 2009 offers the example "out of range of the radar", from which I infer that out of range is idiomatic enough to dispense with the definite article (otherwise it'd be "out of the range of…").

With range meaning "area of effective operation", what is the difference between the versions with and without the article the? Out of (the) range of something.
