These are BC Forestry resource road (RR) radio channels. Primarily used by logging trucks and other resource vehicles, these channels are used to direct traffic and to ensure you don’t have a head on collision. Many roads require you to call your kilometeres as you’re driving to ensure safety. For example

fi 008 03

If you’re heading up the road, you start at even kilometres and odd kilometres when travelling down. It’s important to be on the correct channel when you’re driving on the roads, as each branch may have a different channel. Check below for the channels used in your area.
