They usually have one stationed at elizabethton airport. I've seen em in the area up here before. They use the regular federal forestry frequencies from what I remember.

They only fly when its prime for fires, I have heard them once since last spring.
They used Air31 as a callsign.

Yea my area of expertise is wildland fire so i keep a ear on them all the time.
They tell where they are and where they are going or where the fire is and if anyone is around it.
I even added those 2 aircraft to my flight tracker in case they ever file a flight plan.

Here is the more direct link to the aircraft registry:
FAA Registry - Aircraft - N-Number Inquiry

I am amazed just to see who owns aircraft.
