Reference. The Scannerstuff, Southern
California Frequency directory book is an excellent reference for scanners in general and a complete list of frequencies
used in Southern California. The book is available in San Diego at the Ham Radio Outlet.
Note: In the Mountain Empire the CHP has switched to the RCS digital system with the SDSO. See RadioReference for Talk Groups.
Iphone and Android Devices
My favorite Iphone and android application to monitor on line scanners is Scanner Radio Delux by Gordon Edwards.
