Narrative
Describe in detail what happened including the concern or potential issue, the environment (weather, terrain, fire behavior, etc), and the resulting health issue.
While reviewing the radio program in KNG and DPH Editor we discovered inconsistencies in multiple frequencies on the approved program version. Repeaters that should be duplex show as simplex and at least one transmit tone was incorrect. Inconsistencies have been a chronic issue over the past several years, but are now uncorrectable by field going personnel, thus compromising safety.
Immediate Action Taken
Reporting Individual : please describe actions you took to correct or mitigate the unsafe/unhealthful event.
I have contacted forest radio tech and the Forest FMO.
