Am I to assume that you mean this (from the FAA documentation)?:
Bottom Briefing Strip (Communications Information)
The communications briefing strip contains communication information when available, in separate boxes, listed from left
to right in the order that they would be used during arrival with the tower frequency box bolded:
• ATIS, AFIS (AK Only) or ASOS/AWOS frequencies (when available, ATIS or AFIS will be the only weather
frequency/s published)
• the Approach Control (APP CON) name and frequencies; when the approach service is provided by other than
Approach Control, e.g. FSS (Radio), Tower, Center, the appropriate air traffi c facility call name is provided.
• the Control Tower (TWR) name and frequencies, to include Precision Radar Monitoring (PRM) and frequency
• Ground Control (GND CON) frequencies
• Clearance Delivery (CLNC DEL) frequencies; where a Control Tower does not exist or is part-time, a remoted
CLNC DEL may be listed.
• Controller Pilot Data Link Communication (CPDLC)
• Ground Communications Outlet (GCO) frequency
• Common Traffi c Advisory Frequency (CTAF), shown in parentheses when shares a frequency, e.g. UNICOM
122.8 (CTAF)
• UNICOM or AUNICOM frequency

The approach is more simple and limited. The raw data of airport comms include several freqs per type, and they are not correctly sorted, with the result that many ATS, Ground or Tower freq does not match with the freq. depicted on charts. Basically, we do cross-analysis of the overall comms raw data, and try to detect and sort the freqs. following the right order. A first implementation was included some cycles ago, and this cycle improves the results.

I'm having a hard time finding the checksum for this AIRAC cycle. Is this where is should be found?
