Note: Various Firenet sites throughout the Canada and USA have been upgraded to digital Project 25 compliant. The sites are backward compatible being that they can operate in Analog Narrowband or Digital P25 modes. This providing greater flexibility to the Firenet radio system offering multimode communication along with increased coverage in certain cases, increased traffic loading and segregation and the potential for better interoperability. The P25 feature at this time will only be utilized where radio traffic is heavy and isolation is required and only at sites that have the capability. The Digital Project 25 compliant frequencies will be used on an as needed basis for the 2016 season. When digital frequencies are required, those aircraft equipped with digital capability will be the preferred hired. Digital Project 25 compliant VHF-FM transceivers will be required equipment for the 2017 fire season
