NIICD can no longer assign air to air amplitude modulated frequencies. The frequency pool no longer exists. Assignments can only be made by FAA spectrum management after being ordered by the CDO.

This does not effect initial attack air to air frequencies.

Are these carried on the air fire live stream? Seemed pretty quiet when I listened.

167.525 is CO04 A/G1 which does display as A/G15.

Another air-air

Hearing 123.125 for air-air. Assuming it's North Fork fire due to my monitoring location.

Thanks tough to keep up when they change them around
Even tougher for radio techs who have to travel around a state the size of Colorado reprogramming dozens of radios every spring.

Seriously. Whats the deal with switching the Air-Ground freqs around every fire season? It just seems to add a new layer of complexity to each incident.

There are freqs here from a 2010 Colorado fire in Boulder County. Dont know if they are being used in 2012 or not.
171.1375, 166.6875 and 164.1375 are no longer available for fire use.

It is generally related to radio interference.

One example is that 172.375 a former A/G frequency was being used as the repeater output frequency for three sites on the Routt NF and interference occured.
