 TIME CHANGE – Sunday, November 7, 2021 at 2:00 am Daylight Savings Time ends.  At that time California will be one hour behind Arizona.  All ranges, whether in California or Arizona are scheduled in Arizona Local Time.  Ensure your range request times are adjusted to reflect the time change.  (Arizona to Zulu = AZ Local + 7 / California to Zulu = CA Local +8) 

 LINK 16 MITIGATIONS

  • Until further notice, aircraft in transit to or from MOA's, warning areas, restricted areas, and all other special use airspace, will not transmit link 16 to the max extent practical unless required for safety of flight.
  • Once inside MOA's, warning areas, restricted areas, and all other special use airspace, all ER0G platforms shall advise Yuma Range of their use of Link 16.
  • Aircrew shall be prepared to terminate Link 16 transmissions if asked by controlling agency to "Cease Link 16 operations."  Aircrew will also terminate Link 16 upon spill out of special use airspace.
  • DOD Range Control/ATC shall proactively notify the FAA when compliance with this criteria has been violated to allow for the agency to respond with emergency instructions to nearby Non-DOD, non-participating aircraft.

Refresh:

 RFMSS Range Requests, Per StaO 3710.6_ Pg. 3-4, Sec. 3., Para. C states:  Once a request has been submitted, follow-up tracking on the status is the responsibility of the requesting unit and tracking of the request may be performed via the RCNI. An RCNI assignment does NOT constitute approval/reservation of the request. It is the user’s responsibility to check their pending requests periodically until a reservation or other action has been made.

  • ​RFMSS Training - Units or personnel requiring any training in the use or implementation of RFMSS, contact Yuma Range Scheduling via email at yuma.skeds@usmc.mil, or call DSN 269-/2215 or Commercial (928)269-2215.
  • Knowingly not showing up for your range and giving co-use is wrong.  If not using your range you cannot give a co-use.  It is a “No-Show”, for your unit, which negatively impacts your utilization report percentage.  If giving the range to another unit, you shall cancel your range time.  If the range time is on the same day, you must call Yuma Range to cancel.  You cannot cancel same day ranges in RFMSS.  The unit requesting the range shall submit a request in RFMSS.
