The main item for CHP is that you need a good VHF-LO antenna to monitor them. You could use a mobile antenna at home or try a 50 MHz han HT rubber duck antenna. But a good antena is needed. You will be able to easily hear the base dispatches, but for mobile CHP units you need a high antenna to hear them. CHP also uses mobile extenders on 154.905 MHz.

Hi JR.

Yeah there is always a lot of activity in the Sacramento area to monitor. It is OK to discuss things in general terms as you have, but we don't like to divuldge sensitive things going on, especially in real time.

CHP is going through some changes. Our area was one of the first to do so, but there are some elements not yet (fully) implemented. I continue to monitor CHP as I have for over 30 years; with the frequencies for the cars AND the dispatcher BOTH programmed. If they are not repeating the cars, you'll need to be close (or have great reception abilities) to hear them. Dispatchers can switch towers (on the same channel), so you might hear them clear for one transmission, then scratchy or not at all for the next.
