I'm looking at the wiki and ANF site maps but can't figure out how many ANF service net sites there are. I had assumed they existed everywhere they had Forest and Admin net repeaters but that doesn't seem to be the case. TIA.
The Angeles, San Bernardino and Cleveland have shared a service net since the 1980's if I remember correctly from my time on some fires down there. Santiago Peak, on the northern ranger district of the Cleveland has been used by these three forests for quite some time. Region wide (USFS R5), concurrent with the frequency changes being made to bring radio systems in compliance with NTIA Redbook requirements, service net frequencies are not only being changed, but in some cases new repeaters are being installed. Some Forest net, admin net, National Flight Following and National Air Guard equipment is being replaced as well. The changes to the Angeles Service Net are scheduled for this "spring." Frequency changes for the admin net are also scheduled for this spring. I know it has already been summer in southern California, however I expect that in this case "spring" is April and May. Either that or it means "as soon as we can drive trucks with all our gear to the electronic sites we need to work on." The work could also be affected by equipment procurement/contractor schedules and any tweaking that has to be done in the shop prior to taking it to the site.I'm looking at the wiki and ANF site maps but can't figure out how many ANF service net sites there are.
