I do exploration quite a lot and from my experience, most encounters in wormhole space in relic/data sites I receive, is from ships which decloak straight beside me. No probes, just a buddy by you (pre bookmarked sites with tactical bookmarks) I am still an EVE noob but best counter I found so far to this is to warp out before they finish locking you. Fit for alignment, ditch everything else. Astero gets easily under 2 sec and is golden, rest under 3, which is still doable. If you have above 3 you are dead in frigate. Due to server tick mechanism you will warp off right at server tick if you meet all requirements. Hence not that much important if you have 1.8 or 1.6 , it matters, but it would be longer explanation. Hitting Dscan every 20 sec is not enough. My rule of thumb is hit 2 hacking nods and then dscan… rinse, repeat, all very, very fast. Spend minimum time by each container, speed hack. Adjust your overwiew that you can warp off to something immediately without additional clicking. If you pay attention you shall get away mostly. Warp stabilizers are ok but more or less against instalockers in null, as far as I experienced in my limited eve life. You can live without them in Jspace. Count that dedicated hunters will have warp scram at least strength 3. Also, once u are locked and neuter from stratios stabilizers will also not save you.
