I am going to try to check this fire out tomorrow. Are they just using McDowell County tac channels that would normally be used? If so what are they? What about statewide events channels on VIPER? Does anyone know any forestry frequencies? Thanks

This isn't exactly what you were asking for, but it might be worth plugging in and monitoring . . .

The FAA has issued a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) over the area of the fire, and the contact agency is listed as the NC Forestry Service on 123.125 MHz. You MIGHT be able to catch some activity on that frequency.

Ok. Thanks. Anything I can get. I will look for the TFR to find out where the fire exactly is.

Don't know about VIPER
