Can not hear any forest fire units. I'm not far from current fires burning in Wharton State Forest . I have all freqs listed in radio ref. data bank . Is it that the ground units have such low powered radios they can't be picked up.? Have they changed radio freqs. ?? Thanks in advance

The fire was contained 100% overnight with only interior vegetation burning. I'm hearing sporadic transmissions and a helicopter flying the perimeter this morning. There is just a small crew now patrolling the containment lines. You're not going to hear much now. When this started on Thursday, communications were non-stop on ch 6 and ch 8.
