The onset of homogeneous oscillations in a one-dimensional spatially extended system is considered. Using the stochastic Poincaré model, it is shown that there exists a finite system length beyond which the homogeneous oscillations are always destroyed. The onset of this desynchronization mechanism is clarified.
