San Diego County, California

Scanner Frequencies & Information (Short Sample)

Below is a short sample of the scanner radio frequency and trunked talkgroup information found in the Southern California Frequency Directory. The book includes thousands more frequencies and talkgroups for this county and all of southern California. The book also includes information on businesses, airports, amateur radio, codes, unit designations and radio identifiers, fire station locations and apparatus, detailed narratives explaining local radio usage and more!

This sample frequency list follows the same general format as found in the book:

[Agency Name]

     [Channel] [Description] [PL Tone] [City] [Receive Frequency or Talkgroup] [Transmit Frequency or Trunked System]

 

 

 

The San Diego area features two major trunked radio systems and several smaller systems. The major trunked systems, outlined immediately below, includes the San Diego County RCS system and the City of San Diego system. The San Diego County RCS system is a vast network shared by many different agencies, including nearly all county agencies equipped with radio communications and many municipalities throughout the county. The City of San Diego system is used primarily by users affiliated with the City of San Diego. Programming a scanner for use in San Diego should generally start with setting up each of these two major 800 MHz Motorola trunked systems. Once these two trunked systems are set up, add talkgroups to each system by referencing the agency-specific talkgroup lists throughout this section.

San Diego County RCS Trunking System (“RC” next to talkgroups)

The RCS voice network is a Motorola SmartZone 800 MHz trunked simulcast radio system. The system uses a 3600-baud control channel data stream and supports mixed mode analog and digital communications, including encryption capabilities.


San Diego County RCS – Sites & Microwave Paths

Five major simulcast loops with one set of frequencies for each simulcast loop, and a set of frequencies for each non-simulcast tower site that is not part of a loop. Refer to the map in the book for the simulcast loop most appropriate for your area of interest.

 

San Diego County RCS – Simulcast Loop Frequencies

South Loop Rotating Control Channels:  868.1375 868.4125 868.0705 867.9125

South Loop Voice Only Frequencies:  866.0375 866.1375 866.4125 866.6375 866.8875

  866.9125 867.1375 867.3875 867.4125 867.6125

  867.6375 868.6000 868.4375 867.0625 866.4375

 

North Loop Rotating Control Channels:  861.2000 862.1500 862.2000 863.1500

North Loop Voice Only Frequencies:  856.1750 856.2000 857.1750 857.2000 858.1750

  858.2000 859.2000 860.2000 860.2250 861.0000

  861.1500 863.0000 863.2500 864.2500 865.0000

 

Northeast Loop Rotating Control Ch’s:  867.8375 868.1625 868.1875 868.3375

Northeast Loop Voice Only Freq’s:  866.6625 867.1625 867.3375 867.6625

 

East Loop: No single simulcast frequency set; By tower location (see tower locations below)

East Loop (aka East Zone) cells operate very differently from the North, South and Northeast Loops. North, South and Northeast Loops transmit on the same set of frequencies from all tower sites in the loop. East Zone uses different frequencies at each tower site. As a result, scanner listeners in the East Zone areas must program a particular tower site (or sites) frequency set(s). Keep in mind that individual talkgroups are only broadcast from a particular tower if system subscriber radios are relying on that tower for their communications on that talkgroup. Generally, monitoring talkgroups associated with the area (such as the SDSO or fire department channels used in that area) produce the best scanning results in the East Zone.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Department

Incidents are dispatched on 7A for fire units and 7C or 7D for ambulances. Incidents are assigned a Command channel and two tactical channels (with only the first verbalized), incremental by number and letter. For example, where 9A CMD 6 is the Command channel, 9B TAC 22 and 9C TAC 23 are the corresponding tactical channels for the incidents. The first tactical channel (9B TAC 22 in this example) is announced by the dispatcher and receives more use. The second tactical channel (9C TAC 23 in this example) is known by units but not announced by the dispatcher, and is used only in case of very significant incidents. City of San Diego Emergency Medical Service (EMS) program is a unique public-private partnership between the private Rural/Metro Ambulance and the city’s San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

A Phoenix (AZ) area news media helicopter pilot calls his Scannerstuff book "the scanner bible".

Scannerstuff Publications are relied on by professionals like this news media helicopter pilot/reporter


"Whether you are new to scanning or an oldtimer, there is a lot of meat here to chew on... The ... Southern California Frequency Directory truly picks up where others leave off." --- Larry Van Horn, Assistant Editor, Monitoring Times Magazine.



"What really sets this frequency book apart from most others is the narratives, not only on general radio scanning but on each of the radio systems... This frequency guide goes the extra mile by including detailed maps and narration by those who monitor these frequencies both professionally and as a hobby." Read an independent review of Scannerstuff publications. 

"At the Republic, we use [Scannerstuff books] on a regular basis to track down an obscure agency. Case in point was during the prison standoff last spring. Very helpful!" --- Dave Seibert, staff photographer, Arizona Republic newspaper

"I still say in over 30 years of playing with radios and scanners, this is the best frequency guide I have ever seen."  --- Ron Parks, WB5DYG, Gilbert, AZ"
