The Best Scanner Reference I've Ever Owned!

Recently, I ordered the ScannerStuff Southern California Frequency Directory. I got the book yesterday, and it is AWESOME! Very, VERY comprehensive!

Here's the website for it:

Here are some sample pages:

A Massive all-in-one source for radio monitoring in Southern California
-Coverage of 10 Southern California Counties (see below) in Amazingly Detailed
Pages -Information on Police, Fire, Aircraft, Schools, Hotels, Utilities, Malls,
Media, Amateur Radio, Government, Recreation, and more... -Frequencies, Channel
Numbers & Usage, and PL (CTCSS) Tones -Detailed Background Information on
many agencies -Public Safety Terminology, Codes, Unit Designators/Callsigns and
Aircraft -Trunked Radio Frequencies, TrunkTracker Talkgroups, System
Information, and User Guide -Maps of Police Precincts, Districts, or Beats -Fire
Station Locations, Apparatus, and Incident Responses -Statute Numbers / Codes
-Listeners Guides for Scanners, Trunking, Aircraft, Helicopters, and Fire
Monitoring give you valuable information about "what" you are hearing, not just
where to tune -Access to Free Online Updates -California Counties Covered:
Imperial, Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San
Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura

Although this book is for SoCal, I wish there was a NY Version! (There used to be the Scanner Master books, but this is MUCH better and up to date!)
