NIFC Tac 1 should be 168.0500 unless something has changed that I don't know about.Comm plan for today:
Air Tactics Primary: 171.650
Air Rotor Primary: 127.075
A/G Command 156.330 tone: 156.7 (This was XLC AG I found them using yesterday)
CALCORD Medical: 156.075 (tone 156.7)
Air Guard: 168.625 tone:110.9
Startup time: 0700
Cutoff time: 1836
Structure Defense: LA County V4 152.570
TACS in use:
NIFC T-1 (168.775) Division A
NIFC T-3 (168.600) Division J
NIFC T-5 (166.725) Division Z
VFIRE 22 thru 26 in use for other divisions
156.3300 is XLC (LA County Operational area "C") air-to-ground, license KMA235. Not sure how that one was granted, but I bet it has something to do with narrowbanding as well as being a short bit from the ocean and its relatively low usage.I also heard this morning Air Attack on ANF being told A/G was to be 156.33. I couldn't believe it as it is between Marine CH 66A (156.325) & Marine CH 7A (156.350). I know they are running short of freqs, but why/how pick one in the marine band.
Interesting, it looks like the Angeles is not using any tac or command NIFC frequencies. The federal air to ground is in the NIFC system and I think they have to have NIFC authorization for the V fires, but otherwise they are doing it all local. The air tactics looks like one of those federal unused frequencies in the fire's area type of assignment.
