Default USFS V Tac 10 ? in Angeles National Forest

I just heard a rescue in the Angeles National Forest say they were going to be using V Tac 10.
I have never heard them use V Tacs. Any idea of what they are or have a list of them.

Default vtac10

V tacs are part of the national Interoperability plan

"White Nets" are out, "Vfire" is in

https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/fi...v1%206%201.pdf

If you are a federal user, or you use Fed money to purchase via a grant, you are required to program them
The letter tells you the band

L-Low band
V-VHF
U-UHF
7-700mhz
8-800 mhz

All are supposed to be in the clear however some are required to be p-25

In the ANF, they respond often with LACoFD, and use their channels. Here is the link to the LACoFD channels (VHF/White)...

Look under: VHF - Fire Ground Tac Configuration

Ahh this could be one of those conflicting naming conventions. There is no "VTAC10" in the standard interop naming conventions from 2007 (see Channel Naming ) It is actually VCALL10, then VTAC11 and so on. But LA County Fire has some very similar-named channels such as V-10D (what LZJSR mentioned above) used for tactical purposes. So someone probably meant V-10D (however they verbalize it...) and said verbally V Tac 10 instead. I doubt they meant the natl interop channel VCALL10, it is still rare for many end-users to know/reference those channels in their radio, especially USFS employees.
