San Diego County Fire P25

Post by KE6UPI »

Hello to the group,

Question, can we listen to SDCF P25? If so, what cheap scanner will work? Has anyone tried using an old/used Motorola P25 radio for Rx only?

Thanks, David

They are still running Phase 1 P25 so you can still hear them on a scanner like the BCD396XT (No longer being made) but I would consider one with Phase 2 capability once they upgrade to that an SDS100 is a good choice I also use a BCD325P2.

Cal Fire dispatches can also be heard VHF MVU 1 with any cheap scanner if that is all you want to monitor.
