Question about Home Satellite Radios
Ive purchased a racing scanner from radio shack and can not find any police frequencies- can you please help me?
What type of scanner do you have? Is it strictly VHF, or does it have UHF also, does it cover the Marine band? I am not that familiar with Ventura County. FYI...Most of the police & sheriff Depts in the US Use Starnet which is Satalite based. That doesn't mean that you can't pick up on the transmissions. When the system get over worked it returns back into a trunking system and it is then that you can pick up the transmissions. The problem is that many times the transmissions are random and you may hear the first part of the call and then it may go to a different call altogether. At any rate there are other transmissions that you can hear such as airport towers, Flight Controllers, Misc Govt services, sometimes the fire and rescue (depending on your area) and sometimes you can even pick up the ISS. Here are a few links that might help.
