I was listening to a local mountain fire and they called in an air drop. I wondered where these flights come out of ? Does the State contract this out or does the Forrestry Dept or DCNR have their own equipment?
Same here in Cambria, no activity on the new frequencies. One of the Foresters radioed in the other day and said the 800 was not working and everyone had a portable and would be on the "old system, direct"Still have 3. BTW, have not heard any of the new VHF freq's in use with multiple fires in NE PA. They mention 800, but context is not clear. All old freq are active.
