DCARA will now be using the DFW Area Ham Radio Interoperability Group's Emergency Communications frequency lists. You can download Denton County's list from their web page.
We will continue to work with the older ICE Plan as well. It is suggested that, if you have enough memory locations in your rig, you program the HRIG frequencies starting at location 200.
