I read somewhere that some Verdugo VHF radios are no longer compliant with the County TMAC (Channel plan) Maybe I am getting my acronyms mixed up, but it had to do with the narrowbanding issue and some Area C old radios.

Can someone tell me what "TMAC" stands for? I looked at the LACountyFire site and could not find Tacs 28 and 30 llsited. Can someone tell me what the frequencies are for these tacs?

The Tactical Mutual Aid Channel (TMAC) plan is an LA County Fire creation that complies with state, local and other groups as much as possible. There is a UHF version, and a VHF version. The thought being if every fire rig in the county has a radio with both, everyone will be able to communicate.

I believe the LA County V TMAC encompasses all the CalFire, USFS, NIFC channels, and some of the Verdugo agency radios are older with not enough memory.

I would love to see an updated 2008 listing for UHF and VHF
