Do you know the frequency for the Air to ground 1 they have been talking about?
Try 171.525 or 171.275 but believe it's too windy for air ops now.

JCSO deputy also surrounded by fire and stuck currently.

Add VHF frequencies: 155.595 and 151.43.
So is North Fork Fire using 155.595 (their repeater input) without the necessary tone to go through the repeater (output 153.875)? I am hearing some repeated activity on 153.875, 123.0 tone.

For what it's worth, I am hearing simplex activity on Intercanyon's 154.8075 without the 203.5 tone.

Earlier today I noticed Intercanyon's 154.8075 and 151.43 were patched together, along with the Jeffco Fire 153.935. Is this typically the case, or just for this incident?

I'm also hearing plenty of simplex activity on FERN 2 and FERN 3.

Is 45.08 worth listening to at all anymore? I thought I heard some really weak traffic on it earlier, but it was too weak to copy. Not sure how many trucks still have the lowband radios in them anymore...
