All frequency assignments are based on the authorized frequencies of the using
The available frequencies are listed in the current Radio
Frequency Authorization (RFA).
The initial step in preparing the
net/frequency assignment plan is to identify the unit nets required for
command and control of tactical operations.
After all nets are identified,
compare the resulting frequency requirements against the number of frequencies
Spare frequencies are available for assignment in most SOI with
their use being controlled by the major organizations (controlling authority)
If your frequency allocation and assignments are inadequate,
then additional frequencies must be requested through higher command or area
frequency coordinator, or some nets will be required to share frequencies with
