Thanks Dave, you are probably right about the fire department. I wish we could have watched it from Tikaboo!

Yes, there seems to be some confusion about the callsign. The tower definitely calls Henry 61 "Yankee 61" at least once. In fact we first thought that was its callsign. Then, after listening to the recording again I figured that it was an error. Or do you think there is more to it?

I have heard errors like "Janet... er.... Maple 25" after the handoff to Groom several times.

Note that you can not hear Henry 61 or Henry 68, except at the end when he interacts with the Janet. I believe that he was on the Tower freq. in the mil. air band, and only switched to the civilian air band so the Janet could listen.
Mental note to self: Monitor both freq's next time.

And yes, it was quite windy that day. The wind seems to have shifted from 170 to 100 around sunset.
