5 5 ISR Utilization Policy ISR frequencies are used by other military and federal users on a shared basis.ISR frequencies are used by other military and federal users on a shared basis. –While chances of conflicting with another agency are small, be aware that there may be other users of the frequencies. ISRs are not to be used from aircraft.ISRs are not to be used from aircraft. –The ISR is intended to be a short-range radio. If it is used in an aircraft, its range increases dramatically and may interfere with other users.
