Thanks for the update Tommy, UTAC 40-43 are designated repeater pairs, do you know if this will be repeated fireground and if the D means digital or direct?

In the standardized national interop channel naming, D is for Direct.
I would hope these are not being used as fire ground channels for normal operations. They are FCC designated for interoperability purposes

These are for mutal aide/ interop

We don't have sop's for them, our books don't even show them in our radios.
Found them by.accident, they also seem to.be programed as wide instead of narrow.

Database updated, however the UCALL and UTAC frequencies will not be added since they are already in the Nationwide Interop section of the database. I did add a note in the Fireground (Handhelds) subcategory indicating what the new Zone B lineup is, however.
